Alec Schreck reports from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. A Juarez man was recently arrested for allegedly barbecuing his neighbor's dogs. The charges were later dismissed. ABC-7's Alec Schreck has more on the "myth" that "tacos de perro" really exist among some street vendors.

CIUDAD JUAREZ, Chihuahua -Mexico- -

KVIA ABC-7 reporter Alec Schreck goes into Juarez to put-to-test the "urban legend" that some taco stands in Mexico actually have served "tacos de perro", or "dog-meat tacos".   Schreck followed up on a story that made national headlines: A Juarez man was arrested for allegedly barbecuing his neighbor's dogs.  The suspect was later released and the charges were dropped.

Nonetheless, Alec Schreck visited a few taquerias in the city that borders El Paso, Texas to talk first-hand to street vendors about the "urban legend" dealing with "tacos de perro".  It's a creative, humourous look at food popular on both sides of the border, and the stereotypes that often times (fairly and unfairly) are attributed to taco vendors in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
