  • Lawmaker Dr. Pyo Changwon’s plan to legislate a ban on dog meat (In Chinese)

    Click HERE for English. 立法會議員杓昌原博士(Dr. Pyo Changwon)計劃立法禁止狗肉製品 以下是立法會議員杓昌原博士(Dr. Pyo Changwon)於2017年8月29日在Facebook發布的翻譯: 從明年3月開始,經修訂的“動物保護法”生效後,任何人以殘酷的手段養殖狗或利用殘酷的方法屠宰狗都將被處罰。虐待動物的懲罰也雙倍增加。我會提出更多的法規,以確保打擊的有效性。 (參考杓昌原博士 Dr. Pyo Changwon 的博客) 由於狗肉養殖農場和屠宰行業(狗肉,boshintang或dog elixir)違反了動物保護法,倘若這些法律獲得積極的執行,那麼這些行業就不能繼續存在。 但是,分發和銷售狗肉的不受懲罰。農業,食品和農村事務部是負責對狗肉行業執行法律的,但由於其主要職責是保護和促進農牧業,因此執行這些法律是很少。 韓國是一個依靠出口的工業化國家,我們關心我們的國際地位和形象。由於屠宰狗隻食用是國際譴責的問題,我國政府的態度一直是隱瞞和忽視這個問題,將狗排除為“畜牧業”,使其根據“畜牧產品衛生管理法”進行養殖,屠宰,分銷和銷售。 因此,狗肉銷售業的衛生管理問題尚未得到打擊,銷售業繼續銷售充滿抗生素,殺蟲劑和細菌污染物的狗肉。 在這種狀況下,我國或中國可能會因不衛生的狗肉而導致新出現的傳染病(例如禽流感,SARS或瘋牛病)。那裡存在一個很大的可能性就是不僅我們自己的健康受到威脅,而且使韓國導致全球健康處於危險之中的一個國家。 對於那些支持吃狗肉的人來說,這是我們的文化:你相信你將能夠找到立法者們來立法規定狗肉消費的合法化,並把這個法規通過國民議會常設和司法委員會,特別是在平昌冬奧會臨近的時候?你是否意識到,國際奧委會(IOC)拒絕(Park Geun-hye)政府的要求選擇金道犬成為平昌奧運吉祥物的原因之一是國際社會對韓國狗肉消費的批評? 我計劃推行禁止狗肉消費的立法並不是要懲罰那些狗肉消費者或購買狗肉的人。我的法例將禁止飼養,屠宰和出售狗隻用於食用的消費;這將會挽救我們公民的健康,因為我們的政府使用懦弱的“戰略歧義”所以危害公民的健康。這個立法也將使我們在國外不幸遭受恥辱的青年感到自豪,並幫助那些與伴侶動物從狗肉行業的憂慮和悲傷中恢復過來。 據了解,由於需求減少,已經在衰退的狗肉行業正在考慮將其轉變為其他業務。狗肉銷售的終止只是時間的問題。這是國際社會的潮流。我們建議在狗肉業工作的你立即改變你的職業否則就為時已晚。過去,我要求農業,食品和農村事務部為狗肉行業的就業人事提供指導,教育和支持戰略,但從未得到過回應。我知道新政府會有所不同。 在去年三月僅僅通過的“動物保護法”修改進程並不容易,但最終通過。 我不會放棄。 謝謝。 Interview of Dr. Pyo Changwon by [SBS Morningwide] TV program on September 2, 2016
