Councilman Jason Walker of Duvall responds to call to action against the dog meat trade
We have received a response through a Facebook message from Councilman Jason Walker of Duvall, Washington regarding our campaign. We asked them to take action over the dog meat trade in Jangheung, South Korea. We are grateful to Councilman Walker for responding to our concern so quickly, and expressing his condemnation of the dog meat cruelty in Korea. He informed us that he has already asked their administration to evaluate Sister City status and also promised us that he will discuss this issue with his fellow council members. We hope that the Duvall City leadership will decide to use their position to speak out against the horrible cruelty, and urge Jangheung County to enforce the law to close down the illegal dog meat industry.

Dear Councilman Walker:
I would like to thank you for responding to our concerns raised via the recent petition on Change.org about the mistreatment, torture and consumption of companion animals in Duvall’s Friendship City Jangheung.
And thank you for asking your city administration to evaluate your Sister/Friendship City status and for your plan to discuss your Sister/Friendship City relationship with Council members.
Both domestic and international pressure on this issue is required if we are going to incite some real change in South Korea. So we hope that the leadership of City of Duvall will be able to add your voice and help bring an end to the horrific and illegal practice of the dog meat trade for good.
Thank you again for your efforts here.
