There is breaking news about an “evil” dog-dragging case in Andong, South Korea.

On May 16, 2014 an incident occurred in Andong, South Korea where a man in his 60s drove his motorcycle at the speed of 90 kph (56 mph) dragging his white dog tied to a rope behind him for the purpose of slaughtering and then eating the dog.

Barely alive when found, the dog’s paws, chest, and stomach were bloody from being dragged on the ground and he had serious internal injuries. He was moved to a hospital and is currently undergoing treatment.

Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth, an animal protection organization, reported this case on May 19th as a violation of the Animal Protection Law. The perpetrator’s intent to kill the dog by inflicting injury is evident in this case; the group is also collecting petition signatures to demand the perpetrator be punished.

The dog was given first aid and, with nursing care by local volunteers, has recovered to the extent that he can stand on his own. The perpetrator has relinquished his ownership of the dog and the dog is currently waiting to be adopted.

Please sign petitions against the South Korean Dog Meat Cruelty!

Trail of blood on the road from being dragged with bloody paws, chest and stomach…

Not even a scream when the medical staff touched his wounds. So terrified not even an eye contact…

    Wow this is not human, the cruelty must stop and I will always support the cause but needs to be enforced by more organization. It is an insane way of life that must end.

    These people are the lowest pond scum of the earth – sick, evil, Neanderthal, POS that I wish nothing but pain & suffering to them & their families. Filthy, disgusting, ugly race that should be wiped of the face of the earth – along with anyone who works in the FUR farms or slaughter houses or the dumb arse trophy hunters (or any hunter for that matter)….they’ve all got some DNA missing to be able to perform these acts!!!!!!

          All Asians are not bad and so cruel, however most of them are. to be able to torture any other living life is a sin and a savage brutality against the natural laws of God. To be so evil and heartless as asians are to animals is not of God but of Satan and sin. I only hope the wicked human is did this (and no doubt this is not the first time he did this } is one day dragged into hell and suffered the agony fear and trauma he caused this beautiful dog to endure. That is justice.

            I agree with you!The Asian countries are known to be wicked in many ways.Only a few percent are real different and act with a soul and heart.Wherever you see idolatry is where God is not there.I wish God would come with fire from hell on these nations.Also in Africa.They are not better.Blessings

PLEASE in the name of PATRON SAINT ST FRANCES OF ASSISI FOR ANIMALS AND ECOLOGY I ASK YOU WITH TEARS MY EYES STOP THIS SLAUGHTER AND ABUSE , YOU ARE NOT WORTHY OF THE AIR YOU BREATHE . MAY YOU ROT IN JAIL OR STRUNG UP IN A DESSERT FOR DAYS WITHOUT WATER, I don’t practise hate speech, cruelty, or violence but for the love and pain for these beautiful God given creatures I will NOT withhold my TOTAL anger and distaste for you and your barbaric warped minds and heart.

    Thank you to everyone who rescued and helped this poor dog, I hope he is adopted by a good and loving family and is safe for the rest of his life. I hope that someday that man’s grandchildren understand what he did, and shun him for his awful deed. It is too bad that there are not Korean laws (yet) to punish this terrible man, but soon, the tide is turning to protect animals and then people like this man will be punished.
    Thank you for everyone working to help dogs (and other animals) at KoreanDogs.org and to the supporters who are helping to protect helpless animals.

Enact laws, yes, you the government that prohibits cruelty to animals and then hit them with a fine and jail time for first offense! This practice is repulsive and despicable!

    This is NOT the way to treat living beings!!! This NOT ok!!! We, humans, needs to take responsibility for how we treat each other, and that includes all species!!! What kind of persons will the children watching this kind of cruelty grow up to be??? Will they be loving and caring grown ups with the right values, dignity, respect for others and a peace in heart???!? When will the world wake up and understand that cruelty and abuse against animals is a sign of destruction that will affect us all!!!! Even those who does’nt give a damn about animals should read statistics about how animal abusers in over 70% of the cases also abuse people in one or another way. It is possible to make changes!!! By law, animal police(!), and by standing up as descent people saying NO!!!!! Excuse my bad English, you probably get my point.

    Those of you throughout the world who are sick of the insane cruelty towards dogs in Asia (& very angry about it like I am), why not remember organizations like Koreandogs.org in your will?

    I have set up my will, to help stop the torture of dogs in Asia thru multiple organizations, but, I am only 1 person, who is not rich.
    Why not join me in this idea, & together with great organizations like Koreandogs.org, IDA, Humane Society, Brian Davies Network for Animals, to name a few; we will help put an end to this cruelty once and for all?

    Also, there are many petitions on change.org to help stop the torture of dogs in Asia; please sign them if you have time.

    It breaks my heart whats happening to these dogs. Its forever ruined my mind. I can’t even cook a hot meal without seeing in my head these images and putting my mind with the dogs there. Its depressing. Its emotionally sickening to my heart mind and soul. These people have not less than an ounce of feelings or compassion. They say they know God. Appearntly not because what person throws a dog in hot boiling water alive. My heart sinks deeply.

    JAIL is too good and a waste of money on this monster. He will suffer…along with other cruel people. Their day is coming…IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER…Don’t blame the whole nation. The REAL ISSUE here is not the choice of food, IT’S THE CRUELTY.

    IN the Western world most live in an affluent society and wouldn’t dream of eating certain foods as these and other ethnic people..
    Ethnic groups have their normal food supply whether we agree with it or not. RESPECT THEM IN THEIR DIFFERENCES!

    It’s the diet they are raised to. THE MAIN POINT IS TO STOP THE CRUELTY NOW and depose governments that know but ignore it. They become a party to it. Let’s not brand everyone and offend them. I’m not Asian. Attack the issue not all people. Then hate will not destroy relationships. there’s enough nations at war! Lighty and love to all

  61. Wanda Mallett
    Wanda MallettSeptember 4,14

    HEY FELLOW TRAVELERS! ATTACK THE ISSUE not the whole nation. Their food choice is not the problem. THE CRUELTY IS. Generalizing is not the way.
    Depose the government who know its happening and turn a wicked blind eye. They are a party to this. Empower the good people in that nation.

    Hate of others is the reason we are witnessing wars. HATE the deed, punish the guilty. jail is too good. Some people trapped in the cycle they may be powerless to stop it. Even good people are thrown in jails for speaking up. Support the good.

    Light and love, Wanda

    Anyone who can see a sweet dog wagging its tail and looking up at them for approval and total loyalty then drag it, beat it, burn, boil and skin it alive is one sick, twisted troglodyte that needs to be executed. The fact that the Asians do this every day without a second thought is unfathomable and disgusting. As I type this from my Samsung phone, I feel like beating the thing with a hammer. Kiss my ass Samsung. I’m getting an iPhone. Since you are a very powerful and rich company that could actually help stop this savagery, but you don’t, please shove the wares you are peddling up your ass.

    I agree with Moonglow29.yes,Many ,many Koreans are cruel people when it comes to life,animals and rights.China is a wicked country,so is Vietnam,Cambodga and certainly North Korea!Where you find corruption and cruelty, a land goes to hell.Lets hope soon.In North Korea, the nut president killed a “few” family members months ago.The N-Koreans worship this idiot in fear of being the next sacrifice.If anyone inflicts torture and pain to any animal/pet God so beautifully created ,they will endure the same pain in hell.I wish it was today.I pray the 10 plagues of Egypt would befall on these Asian countries and Africa as well.They are not better.
    Thank you for saving this innocent soul dog.I would nurse him back to health and togheter I would love to find a way to drag this evil criminal behind a truck.

In the US, they even serve as guides to blind people, for police duties, and much more! And this is how you stupid people treat them!? No! Humans dont deserve earth at all… Animals did not ask to be here! They should be living in peace & harmony with us- but no! Some people have to destroy it all!
    Thanks to this scum, I hate Asians! Better, I hate humanity! I just pray for the day when this world ends! Humans are no better than animals!
    I am not making babies to comtribute to this stupid human population! My kids will be rescue dogs & other animals. Why do I want a human who i do not know hows he gonna turn into? No!

    Please do not forget in all your (understandable) hate:
    A Korean Policeman stopped this!
    Korean people shared this and want to rescue animals.
    Don’t mix them up with these cruel, heartless inhumans.
    They don’t deserve it. Maybe a minority (but for truth in “our” nations are just a few percent of “open minded” persons, too) they (the helpers) need our respect and help.
    People are not overall the same. Nowhere.

    This a good example of an brain and heartless ignorant cruel psycho idiot.

      Your right, thank you for bringing us back to earth, I think we all get so fired up with hatred for these cruel barbarians we loose control of our emotions and hate takes over, which is what evil wants, there is evil that exists but it goes its work silently and undetected, using weak minded and hate fuel individuals to do its dirty work, as minions, the more hate, violence and bloodshed we create on this planet, the more evil thrives. So instead we need to control our emotions or we would all be falling for the evil’s plan to create hate and division between people and nations.

    I wonder what percentage of Koreans, chinese and all those asian countries have actual good people? If less then 10% the animals over there are living in hell on earth. That would be every second some animal is being tortured and slained. You think eventually all the animals there would die out but these barbarians continuously breed more and more animals, so its an endless cycle of torture, suffering for these animals, born into a living hell.
