Sample letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

To the honorable United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon,

The $2 billion dollar-a-year South Korean dog and cat meat industry, which extinguishes the lives of approximately two and a half million dogs a year for meat or gaesoju, a dog wine or broth, and thousands of despised and doomed cats for so-called “health” tonics or goyangyeesoju, and soup, operates in a sordid and illicit world where farmers and butchers kill with frightening impunity in the most abominable fashion. Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched. At Moran Market, South Korea’s largest open air-market for dog meat, dog carcasses are on display next to the cages of live dogs. Cats are often bludgeoned and thrown into boiling water while still alive. At the farms, dogs are fed germ-infested, rotting, and fermented human leftovers, a health risk to both the dogs and those who eat them. In South Korea, dogs and cats’ lives are short and ferociously heartless until they tremble no more at the hands of their slaughterers as cage mates look on. http://koreandogs.org/

According to the Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)’s comprehensive study on S. Korean dog meat industry http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf,

“Using electric rods did not instantly kill the dog. First contact to electric rod did paralyze the dog but dogs were still conscious. In most cases, two to three contacts with electric rod will finally make the dog motionless. Duration of electrocution differed by slaughter houses. First contact is within two seconds, and follow-on contact required longer contacts. At some slaughterhouses with poor electricity system, the dog did not lose consciousness after using electric shock. Rather it tried to bite off the electric rod. It is one cruel episode that proved electrocution does not instantly kill the animal. According to our research, electric shock is followed by plucking, where whole process took two to five minutes. Dogs can hardly be dead in such a short period of time. In such cases, dogs are paralyzed but still conscious to suffer from the pain of plucking and die.”

Here the plucking or removal of fur is done by throwing the dog often paralyzed and unable to move but still conscious into the boiling water and then into the rotating drum that removes the fur. This is a terrifying and excruciating experience beyond imagination.

Sometimes unconscious but still alive dogs are blow torched to remove fur.

You can see an evidence of this cruelty from this video of raid by a Korean TV broadcast company and an animal rights group in Korea called Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE): http://youtu.be/ldblUoQ2tvo

Please also take a look at this video that shows the dogs being transported to Seongnam Moran market (the largest dog meat market in the country) during the pitch darkness of the night, taken one by one out of the cages where they were packed unable to move for many hours, electrocuted and thrown into boiling water. Some of these dogs thrown into the boiling water could be still alive and able to feel the excruciating pain and terror of being boiled alive. Click “CC” for English caption. http://youtu.be/vHB3uwB9kyA (At 6:17 this scene starts).

According to the CARE’s report from their year long undercover investigation last October (visiting total of 82 locations of dog meat farms, markets, slaughterhouses,..) of dog meat industry, FAQ #7, “Electric shock brings extreme pain, and dogs often remain conscious throughout repeated applications. It is known that in some cases, dogs stay perfectly conscious even when they are put in boiling water or hair removal machines.”

Cruelty happens at all stages at S. Korean dog meat industry. Here are few videos showing the cruelty during the transport and at the market:

http://youtu.be/wuZTUuyB484

In addition to the unspeakable cruelty perpetrated dog meat trade is also a serious threat to human health. Dog farms are hotbed for infectious diseases. Since there is no disease control these dogs suffer from diseases from highly infectious and transmittable bacteria, virus, ectoparasites, endoparasites, and fungi. Out of 165 dogs bred at a dog farm in Seoul area, 83 dogs(50.3%) were infected with endoparasites and 23 dogs(20.2%) were infected with heart worm.

Puppies suffer from malnutrition because they are fed rotting food waste (infested with pests such as rats, cockroaches, flies..) after being weaned. In order to hide from the law and civil complaints, most dog farms are located in remote areas where sun is scarce causing vitamin D (necessary for bone growth) deficiency.

Locked in cages for months, dogs are bored and stressed from being packed with other dogs and constant stench. Stress hormone weakens their immune system and they become susceptible to hormonal diseases such as hyperadrenocorticism.

Antibiotics, antidiarrheal and steroid are used to control measles, parvovirus, various respiratory and digestive diseases but abuse of drugs led to tolerance against antibiotics and relevant innate problems. In some cases, 10 times the normal doses were being administered by the farmers themselves without the supervision of veterinarian.

Large dose of heavy metal that accumulated in the organs and caused internal body malfunction is detected in dog meat. Heavy metal is assumed to have been accumulated from eating leftover food waste and low-end feed (remains from slaughter houses). Many serious and often life threatening diseases can be attributable to this unsanitary and inhumane dog meat industry and they include animal bites and scratches, Bubonic Plague, Camphylobacter, Cutaneous larval migrans, Giardiasis, Lyme Disease, Psittacosis, Rabies, Salmonellosis, Shigellosis, Visceral Larva Migrans, Anthrax, Bebesiosis, Brucellosis, Colibacilosis,… Read the extensive research report by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf.

There is no appropriate animal-protection legislation to prevent the animal cruelty currently taking place in S. Korea. As someone who believes strongly that animals should not be treated in this way, I request that you investigate and address this issue immediately. Please sanction S. Korean government until they strengthen the Animal Protection Law to prevent animal cruelty and to introduce basic animal-protection regulations. It must also provide penalties for violations and ensure that mistreated animals can be legally seized from abusers and given immediate refuge. I request that you insist S. Korean Government to create an enforceable law to ban the torture, killing, sale, and consumption of dogs and cats. Please don’t let the S. Korean government get away with this outrageous cruelty to companion animals.
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.

      Koreans are mentally sub-standard, filthy, disgusting, vile people with dead black hearts who don’t have a place in a civilized world!!! The barbaric cruelty in Korea is beyond belief and heartbreaking. Complete mental morons to believe in idiotic myths about torture and are people who lack normal human compassion. God knows the evil you do to His helpless, innocent animals and I pray that he intervenes soon. The world knows too about your sick, ugly society.

          My partner’s best friend is Korean and I’ve met some lovely Koreans but what Sherry compton has written is not about individuals but rather the society that accepts this as a whole and I agree with her putting this out there. If Korea can be shamed into stopping this by public opinion then why not. Whatever works. obviously nothing else is working. And I pray too. We all should be. I have of course taken action too, and emailed many officials and rang the Korean embassy here in Australia. But it seems that perhaps only shaming and creating a bad reputation for Korea may be the only the officials will intervene.

      I wanted to share a reply by post I just received from United Nations on behalf of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon regarding a letter I sent him re: the dog and cat meat trade. The good news is it actually seems to be a personalized letter regarding that specific issue and not just another generic form letter.
      Bad news; They say he is not in a position to take action alone. They say a lot more than that, but that is the gist of it.
      They do go on to suggest, however, that we send letters to the;

      Permanent Mission of the United States to the United Nations
      140 East 45th Street
      New York, NY
      10017
      USA

      FAX: 212 415 4000

      http://www.usunnewyork.usmission.gov

      As well as;

      The World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA)

      http://www.worldanimalprotection.us.org/

      They also suggested we contact our Member of Parliament, but as I live in the US, I am not sure what to do with that.

      Anyway, I hope the above proves to be useful and effective.

      Peace, Salaam, Shalom, Juli

        I agree with Kim & Sherry too! Although we can’t make generalizations, you do have to admit that for whatever reason many Asian countries have very little regard for animals, look at China and Vietnam. I believe if we are to be civilized and modern and trading with nations such as these, the UN MUST make animal welfare issues along with better human rights a requirement to be a signatory!!!
        I know there was some debate on this and we have to push this! We MUST let ALL Ambassadors, Embassies, etc. know that we demand BETTER treatment and welfare of ALL animals! We ARE ALL creatures of the same GOD and as a Christian I have been commanded to be a GOOD steward. I will NOT be silent when I see cruelty and abuses such as these!
        We ARE IN the 21st century! For nations to be able to trade with us, ask us for monetary or disaster support, food aide, etc. they MUST have better morals and values and respect for ALL life!!!
        Since I’m here typing I want to ask everyone to go VEGAN!!!! There is NO difference between a dog, pig, cow, cat, parakeet or chicken!! In fact pigs are smarter than dogs, chickens have almost 30 different vocalizations and can count, the are clever at the “shell game” too! Cows are very social and dedicated mothers. They ALL want to live, love and have peace-so let that begin with US!!!! GO VEGAN!! We are learning more and more about just how smart animals are, even fish-it’s time to look at them ALL differently!!

      I became aware of the illegal dog meat trade of your country some time ago. I have been a supporter to your law enforcement and was proud of them for the work they do to stop this cruelty, I am appalled that a government and especially a government who has a leader in the United Nation would not ban the Bok-Nal Dog soup Festival. Is this not illegal as well? The mistreatment and cruelty to any animal is unacceptable. To see vulnerable dogs caged and disregarded is a shameful thing. And yes, you should feel shame for not stopping this festival. I ask again, is illegal dog trade not illegal in your country. This contradiction boggles my mind. Please please do the right thing. Canada has supported your people, help your people gain entry to our country. I am a believer in one people, one planet. But good people would not allow this festival to happen, especially when this cruelty is illegal. Please take a stand and stop the Dog Soup festival. You are in a position to do so. Do not pass the responsibility onto other organizations. You are the government, you govern your country. You have the power. Please use it in a good way.

    THERE IS NO NEED TO BE CRUEL AND SHOW YOUR IGNORANCE TO EVERYBODY IN THIS TERRIBLE WAY! Human ignorance and cruelty makes this world into a living HELL. When people die “they go to hell”. When animals are born, they come right into the hell some people have created for them. And who deserves hell more?? Not an innocent dog. One can only dream that reincarnation exists, so that all cruel people treating dogs like they were not living beings, reincarnate into a dog in the “meat trade” and they slaughter and eat their own grandfathers who taught them to do it in the first place. That would be a what goes around comes around.

    Dear Mr Ban,

    There is no appropriate animal-protection legislation to prevent the animal cruelty currently taking place in S. Korea. As someone who believes strongly that animals should not be treated in this way, I request that UN organizations investigate and address this issue immediately. Please sanction S. Korean government until they strengthen the Animal Protection Law to prevent animal cruelty and to introduce basic animal-protection regulations. It must also provide penalties for violations and ensure that mistreated animals can be legally seized from abusers and given immediate refuge. I request that UN organizations insist S. Korean Government to create an enforceable law to ban the torture, killing, sale, and consumption of dogs and cats. Please don’t let the S. Korean government get away with this outrageous cruelty to companion animals.
    The favor of your reply is requested.

    To the honorable United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon,

    Please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q

    The $2 billion dollar-a-year South Korean dog and cat meat industry, which extinguishes the lives of approximately two and a half million dogs a year for meat or gaesoju, a dog wine or broth, and thousands of despised and doomed cats for so-called “health” tonics or goyangyeesoju, and soup, operates in a sordid and illicit world where farmers and butchers kill with frightening impunity in the most abominable fashion. Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched. At Moran Market, South Korea’s largest open air-market for dog meat, dog carcasses are on display next to the cages of live dogs. Cats are often bludgeoned and thrown into boiling water while still alive. At the farms, dogs are fed germ-infested, rotting, and fermented human leftovers, a health risk to both the dogs and those who eat them. In South Korea, dogs and cats’ lives are short and ferociously heartless until they tremble no more at the hands of their slaughterers as cage mates look on. http://koreandogs.org/

    According to the Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)’s comprehensive study on S. Korean dog meat industry http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf,

    “Using electric rods did not instantly kill the dog. First contact to electric rod did paralyze the dog but dogs were still conscious. In most cases, two to three contacts with electric rod will finally make the dog motionless. Duration of electrocution differed by slaughter houses. First contact is within two seconds, and follow-on contact required longer contacts. At some slaughterhouses with poor electricity system, the dog did not lose consciousness after using electric shock. Rather it tried to bite off the electric rod. It is one cruel episode that proved electrocution does not instantly kill the animal. According to our research, electric shock is followed by plucking, where whole process took two to five minutes. Dogs can hardly be dead in such a short period of time. In such cases, dogs are paralyzed but still conscious to suffer from the pain of plucking and die.”

    Here the plucking or removal of fur is done by throwing the dog often paralyzed and unable to move but still conscious into the boiling water and then into the rotating drum that removes the fur. This is a terrifying and excruciating experience beyond imagination.

    Sometimes unconscious but still alive dogs are blow torched to remove fur.

    You can see an evidence of this cruelty from this video of raid by a Korean TV broadcast company and an animal rights group in Korea called Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE): http://youtu.be/ldblUoQ2tvo

    Please also take a look at this video that shows the dogs being transported to Seongnam Moran market (the largest dog meat market in the country) during the pitch darkness of the night, taken one by one out of the cages where they were packed unable to move for many hours, electrocuted and thrown into boiling water. Some of these dogs thrown into the boiling water could be still alive and able to feel the excruciating pain and terror of being boiled alive. Click “CC” for English caption. http://youtu.be/vHB3uwB9kyA (At 6:17 this scene starts).

    According to the CARE’s report from their year long undercover investigation last October (visiting total of 82 locations of dog meat farms, markets, slaughterhouses,..) of dog meat industry, FAQ #7, “Electric shock brings extreme pain, and dogs often remain conscious throughout repeated applications. It is known that in some cases, dogs stay perfectly conscious even when they are put in boiling water or hair removal machines.”

    Cruelty happens at all stages at S. Korean dog meat industry. Here are few videos showing the cruelty during the transport and at the market:
    http://youtu.be/uKCdAGfGOsQ
    http://youtu.be/cJnp87OSn58
    http://youtu.be/wuZTUuyB484

    In addition to the unspeakable cruelty perpetrated dog meat trade is also a serious threat to human health. Dog farms are hotbed for infectious diseases. Since there is no disease control these dogs suffer from diseases from highly infectious and transmittable bacteria, virus, ectoparasites, endoparasites, and fungi. Out of 165 dogs bred at a dog farm in Seoul area, 83 dogs(50.3%) were infected with endoparasites and 23 dogs(20.2%) were infected with heart worm.

    Puppies suffer from malnutrition because they are fed rotting food waste (infested with pests such as rats, cockroaches, flies..) after being weaned. In order to hide from the law and civil complaints, most dog farms are located in remote areas where sun is scarce causing vitamin D (necessary for bone growth) deficiency.

    Locked in cages for months, dogs are bored and stressed from being packed with other dogs and constant stench. Stress hormone weakens their immune system and they become susceptible to hormonal diseases such as hyperadrenocorticism.

    Antibiotics, antidiarrheal and steroid are used to control measles, parvovirus, various respiratory and digestive diseases but abuse of drugs led to tolerance against antibiotics and relevant innate problems. In some cases, 10 times the normal doses were being administered by the farmers themselves without the supervision of veterinarian.

    Large dose of heavy metal that accumulated in the organs and caused internal body malfunction is detected in dog meat. Heavy metal is assumed to have been accumulated from eating leftover food waste and low-end feed (remains from slaughter houses). Many serious and often life threatening diseases can be attributable to this unsanitary and inhumane dog meat industry and they include animal bites and scratches, Bubonic Plague, Camphylobacter, Cutaneous larval migrans, Giardiasis, Lyme Disease, Psittacosis, Rabies, Salmonellosis, Shigellosis, Visceral Larva Migrans, Anthrax, Bebesiosis, Brucellosis, Colibacilosis,… Read the extensive research report by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf.

    The reason this horror exists is because they are a Godless nation…..they are pagans and are evil to the core…..the small percentage of those Koreans that fight the good fight to right the wrongs in their country for the hundreds of thousands of animal victims are truly saints and have risen above their primitive and barbaric culture. There are many nations with evil people who exploit, torture and kill animals for reasons of sport, tradition and farming. Any form of torture and killing against God’s creatures is an abomination in the eyes of God and most likely will not be punished on Earth justly but only by the hands of the almighty at Judgment Day……I pray for the poor animal souls that you torture and kill and look forward to a swift and just punishment on your people for the sins they commit in this life……the afterlife for these individuals that commit such unspeakable acts holds an eternity of horror for their blackened souls….if souls exist at all in these people…..May all who do harm to God’s creatures get a just punishment at the end of days…….

    I’ve done all the above including Juli’s suggested email contacts below:

    (I wanted to share a reply by post I just received from United Nations on behalf of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon regarding a letter I sent him re: the dog and cat meat trade. The good news is it actually seems to be a personalized letter regarding that specific issue and not just another generic form letter.
    Bad news; They say he is not in a position to take action alone. They say a lot more than that, but that is the gist of it.
    They do go on to suggest, however, that we send letters to the;

    Permanent Mission of the United States to the United Nations

    http://www.worldanimalprotection.us.org/

    They also suggested we contact our Member of Parliament, but as I live in the US, I am not sure what to do with that.

    Anyway, I hope the above proves to be useful and effective.
