London's "Mystery Meat" could be Dog or Cat

If you live in the UK you might have heard about the newest little scandal regarding take away's. A private investigation into fast-food places in London that tested meat DNA came across a little place that's stumped them. Yes; they found horse DNA but that's not all. The so called 'lamb curry' is not lamb, beef, chicken, pork, goat, horse and even human has been ruled out.

It's uncertain what it is but some suspect Cat or Dog but I would think it's more likely to be Rabbit since people do eat it in this country and it would be easier to get a supply of rabbit meat than dog or cat... in theory at least.

Here's a link to the story if you're interested:

This most likely has gone on for years; not just in takeaways but in the meat industry itself as how can we be sure what we're eating these days when it's already packaged for us? Unless you make something yourself you can never know what it is and we take the risk of eating something unsavory every single day.

I may not eat meat but even then when eating out especially take out I can't be entirely certain as who knows how they prepare their food? How they store it?

What are your thought's on this? Are you surprised by it at all? I mean, I'm not but it's interesting to see what the rest of you think.
