Chungcheongbuk-do Province of South Korea became a sister state with Idaho in 1986 and Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan in 1992 , despite the fact that Chungcheongbuk-do, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat cruelty.

In South Korea, home to global companies such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry, and the profound indifference of the majority of South Koreans who does nothing to stop this. One of the provinces which supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Chungcheongbuk-do.

Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Click HERE to watch undercover videos from dog farms and slaughterhouse in South Korea. There are no words to describe the daily horror of these “Hell On Earth.” There are so many dog restaurants, slaughterhouses, farms and meat markets like these all around Chungcheongbuk-do.

Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Chungcheongbuk-do and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific of ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive. Cheongju, Jincheon, Chungju, Jaecheon, Boeun, Eumseong, Danyang, Goesan, Jeungpyeong, Youngdong ; and on goes the list of cities in Chungcheongbuk-do where these terrible atrocities are perpetrated.
