A photo featuring a small girl crying next to a roughly-roasted dog has gone viral on Vietnamese social media over the last few days. 
After so many re-posts, it's now not clear who first posted the photo as well as details of where and when it was taken, but it has sparked off heated debates over the dog meat eating habit in Vietnam.
In the photo, the girl aged 4-5 looked apparently shocked and painful as she touched the body of the dog in a flat basket.
Many assumed the photo was taken in a northern rural village, where it is usual for people to slaughter dogs for meat. 
Some Facebook users said the photo reminds them of their sad and obsessing childhood memories when their loved dogs were also slaughtered by adults.
