Activists Call to Stop the Dog Meat Trade of South Korea

Animal advocates including Nami Kim of NamiKim.orgSTART Rescue, KoreanDogs.org, and Last Chance for Animals (LCA) will be protesting the Korean dog meat trade outside the South Korean consulate on Thursday, July 21 at 10:30 am. Full details:

What: A protest to spread awareness of Korea's dog meat industry and embarrass South Korean officials for allowing the cruelty to continue.

When: Thursday, July 21, 2016 from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm

Where: South Korean Consulate - 3243 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90010

LCA has produced a video to promote the protest, viewable here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynvQbSx5ntE

South Korea systematically breeds and raises dogs solely for the purpose of human consumption. Koreans claim that the more a dog suffers the better its meat tastes -- so many dogs are sadistically made to experience extreme fear and suffering prior to death. "They are electrocuted, hanged, beaten, have their throats slashed, or are boiled or burnt to death," according to KoreanDogs.org.

"By allowing millions of dogs each year to be purposely tortured and killed, the South Korean government is guilty of the most despicable acts of animal cruelty," said LCA Founder and President Chris DeRose. "Shame on them for permitting this barbaric abuse."

An estimated 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are cruelly slaughtered and eaten each year in South Korea. In spite of worldwide public outcry upon the government, the powers-that-be continue to turn a blind eye to this practice.

South Korea has the world's 14th-largest economy and is home to global brands such as Samsung, Hyundai, Kia and LG. Additionally, the country is proudly sponsoring the Winter Olympics of 2018, despite the global protest against their dog meat trade.

    Enough is enough. The authorities don't act to stop this barbaric act and I am tired of asking and signing petitions. It is time to boycott them. Don't buy their products. From their rice burning cars and trucks to electronics, appliances, clothing, .....etc. and if they know there is a reward on their head for being involved in this act, they will stop. Just my personal opinion.

    Please do what you can to stop this barbaric practice. I live in UK but I am with you all the way. They are living in the dark ages and to torture an aminal to make it taste better is absolute nonsense.
