Call for Action: Send emails to the South Korean National Assembly Members!

Please help in the important work of bringing awareness of the barbaric South Korean dog meat industry by sending emails to the South Korean National Assembly Members. All the work has been done for you, all email addresses are provided and a sample letter has been written. It will take just a few minutes to help with such important work.

Han-Gil Kim Democratic Party Leader

Moo-Sung Kim Saenuri Party Leader

There are hundreds of National Assembly Members, Chairmen of this, Chairwomen of that, Ph.D. of this, Ph.D. of that, Committee Leaders of all kinds of committee. The list of titles is endless in the South Korean government, but not one voice is speaking out against the horrendous dog meat cruelty and nightmarish brutality and violence perpetrated against these helpless companion animals.

It’s almost beyond belief that these kind looking and highly educated people can be so indifferent in the face of such viciousness.

Silence means indifference. Today, please be the voice for the dogs of the South Korean meat trade. Please send these emails to the National Assembly Members of the two major political parties in South Korea – the Saenuri and Democratic parties. Thank you!

    Dear South Korean Government,

    Please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
    I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.
    With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country.

    Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies?

    It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions.

    And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and showing that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner.

    Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

    We urge you and the people of S. Korea to learn the teachings of venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest: Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest’s Argument Against Dog Meat Consumption http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong/ 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/.
    Please also read this written by your own citizen: 생명의 고통이 있는 곳에… http://koreandogs.org/info/info-in-korean-한글-정보/essay-on-dog-meat/

    From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean companies or visit Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended.

    Sample
    Protest
    Letter
    to
    S.
    Korean
    Government
    Dear Korean Government Officials:

    As an American citizen, I am angry and appalled over the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea. Every day on social media we are hearing of horrific abuse and seeing shocking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. (for example see: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q )

    Even though Korea has an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, it is meaningless as the Korean government does not enforce it. As a consequence dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and brutally treated by farmers and slaughterers. In addition, both dogs and cats are still being boiled alive for so-called elixirs having no medical properties except in the minds of gullible
    customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Yet, all this goes on in the open and the Korean government does nothing to stop it. Why? Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that promotes it. Why not Korea?

    It is the responsibility of the Korean government to end the abhorrently cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea and start taking animal welfare seriously. This means educating its citizens about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals humanely. Until these things are done Korea’s reputation in the international community will deservedly suffer.

    I urge you and the people of Korea to hearken to the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi who said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    Americans love their companion animals, dogs and cats alike. But it is not only for that reason we feel a special obligation to speak out on this issue. It is also that we remember well our many loved ones whose lives were sacrificed in your country insuring your freedom, and are mindful of the considerable treasure our country continues to spend for that same purpose. We can only pray that so much sacrifice has been worth the cost.

    Until the illegal dog meat and cat medicine industries have been finally abolished in Korea, I will boycott all Korean products and companies as well as the 2018 Olympics. I also intend to urge everyone I know to urge everyone they know, etc. to do the same. In addition I will unceasingly lobby our own government to do whatever is within its power to persuade Korea to join the civilized nations of the world with respect to its treatment of companion animals.

    Thank you for your time. The favor of your reply is requested.

    Sincerely,
    Marsha Stanek

    저는 대한민국에서는 반려동물을 고문하고 잡아먹는다는 사실을 접하고 엄청난 충격을 받았습니다. 산재해 있는 소셜 미디어를 통해서 한국에 있는 아무런 죄 없는 개들이 고문 당하고 죽임 당하는 끔찍하고 가슴 아픈 장면이 담긴 사진과 동영상을 매순간 접하고 있습니다.

    비록 한국이 반려동물에 대한 동물보호법을 제정했지만 개들은 여전히 개농장 주인과 도살업자에게 구타당하고, 목 매달리고, 감전되고, 잔인하게 취급 당하고 있습니다. 또 보약이라는 미명하에 아직도 개와 고양이를 산채로 끓는 물에 집어넣고 있습니다. 아무런 의학적 효과가 증명된 바 없음에도 불구하고 무지하고 잘 속아넘어가는 사람들은 여전히 효험이 있다고 믿고 있습니다.

    이러한 관행은 오늘날 어디에서도 찾아볼 수 없는 일입니다. 대만이나 필리핀 같은 다른 아시아 국가들은 이미 개고기와 개고기 관련 산업을 금지시켰습니다. 한국이 왜 이러한 나라들이나 다른 문명 사회보다 뒤쳐진 채로 남아있는지 이해할 수가 없습니다.

    한국에서 이 잔인하기 짝이 없는 개고기 산업과 고양이로 만든 보약 산업을 영원히 근절시키는 것은 대한민국 정부의 책임입니다. 이와 관련된 산업과 혐오식품을 둘러싼 어리석은 괴담과 주장을 떨쳐버릴 때입니다. 낙후되고 불필요한 전통은 과감히 버릴 때입니다.

    그리고 동물복지 문제를 심각하게 받아들여서 한국 사회가 자비롭고 윤리적인 사회라는 것을 보여줄 때입니다. 즉, 한국 정부가 대중들에게 반려동물의 중성화의 중요성, 유기금지, 동물에 대한 적절한 취급에 대해 더 나은 교육을 시작할 때라는 뜻입니다.

    그렇지 않으면 한국은 국제사회에서 계속해서 나쁜 평판을 이어가게 될 것입니다. 한국 국민들 역시 수치와 곤란함을 겪게 될 겁니다. 한국이 근대화되었고 국제화된 사고를 도입하려 함에도 불구하고 여전히 “제3세계 후진국가”로 인식될 것입니다. 한국정부와 국민들이 법정스님의 가르침을 배우기를 촉구합니다. 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/. 또 한 한국분이 쓴 글도 읽어보시기 바랍니다. 생명의 고통이 있는 곳에… http://koreandogs.org/info/info-in-korean-한글-정보/essay-on-dog-meat/

    저는 개와 고양이에 대한 학대가 한국에서 완전히 사라지기 전까지 한국 제품을 구매하지 않을 것이고 한국 회사를 이용하거나 한국을 방문하지 않을 것입니다.

    Dear South Korean Government,

    I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.
    With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country.

    Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies?

    It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions.

    And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and showing that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner.

    Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

    We urge you and the people of S. Korea to learn the teachings of venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest: Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest’s Argument Against Dog Meat Consumption http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong/ 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/.

    Dear Korean Government Officials:
    As an American citizen, I am angry and appalled over the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea. Every day on social media we are hearing of horrific abuse and seeing shocking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. (for example see: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q )

    Even though Korea has an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, it is meaningless as the Korean government does not enforce it. As a consequence dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and brutally treated by farmers and slaughterers. In addition, both dogs and cats are still being boiled alive for so-called elixirs having no medical properties except in the minds of gullible
    customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Yet, all this goes on in the open and the Korean government does nothing to stop it. Why? Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that promotes it. Why not Korea?

    It is the responsibility of the Korean government to end the abhorrently cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea and start taking animal welfare seriously. This means educating its citizens about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals humanely. Until these things are done Korea’s reputation in the international community will deservedly suffer.

    I urge you and the people of Korea to hearken to the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi who said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    Americans love their companion animals, dogs and cats alike. But it is not only for that reason we feel a special obligation to speak out on this issue. It is also that we remember well our many loved ones whose lives were sacrificed in your country insuring your freedom, and are mindful of the considerable treasure our country continues to spend for that same purpose. We can only pray that so much sacrifice has been worth the cost.

    Until the illegal dog meat and cat medicine industries have been finally abolished in Korea, I will boycott all Korean products and companies as well as the 2018 Olympics. I also intend to urge everyone I know to urge everyone they know, etc. to do the same. In addition I will unceasingly lobby our own government to do whatever is within its power to persuade Korea to join the civilized nations of the world with respect to its treatment of companion animals.

    Thank you for your time. The favor of your reply is requested.

    Sincerely,

    • rebeca loibl

    그리고 동물복지 문제를 심각하게 받아들여서 한국 사회가 자비롭고 윤리적인 사회라는 것을 보여줄 때입니다. 즉, 한국 정부가 대중들에게 반려동물의 중성화의 중요성, 유기금지, 동물에 대한 적절한 취급에 대해 더 나은 교육을 시작할 때라는 뜻입니다.

    그렇지 않으면 한국은 국제사회에서 계속해서 나쁜 평판을 이어가게 될 것입니다. 한국 국민들 역시 수치와 곤란함을 겪게 될 겁니다. 한국이 근대화되었고 국제화된 사고를 도입하려 함에도 불구하고 여전히 “제3세계 후진국가”로 인식될 것입니다. 한국정부와 국민들이 법정스님의 가르침을 배우기를 촉구합니다. 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/. 또 한 한국분이 쓴 글도 읽어보시기 바랍니다. 생명의 고통이 있는 곳에… http://koreandogs.org/info/info-in-korean-한글-정보/essay-on-dog-meat/

    Please refrain from torturing and killing these innocent, defenseless creatures who are domesticated pets that only want to be companions to us and
    make us happy. Imagine the fear they endure watching their fellow creature going through such horrific torture. They see them being torn apart
    or boiled alive, and they know the same thing is going to happen to them soon.

    Please stop this barbaric history of abuse of animals. Please be strong enough to stand up against evil.

    Dear South Korean Government,
    Please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
    I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.
    With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country.

    Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies?

    It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions.

    And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and showing that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner.

    Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

    We urge you and the people of S. Korea to learn the teachings of venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest: Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest’s Argument Against Dog Meat Consumption http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong/ 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/.

    저는 대한민국에서는 반려동물을 고문하고 잡아먹는다는 사실을 접하고 엄청난 충격을 받았습니다. 산재해 있는 소셜 미디어를 통해서 한국에 있는 아무런 죄 없는 개들이 고문 당하고 죽임 당하는 끔찍하고 가슴 아픈 장면이 담긴 사진과 동영상을 매순간 접하고 있습니다.

    비록 한국이 반려동물에 대한 동물보호법을 제정했지만 개들은 여전히 개농장 주인과 도살업자에게 구타당하고, 목 매달리고, 감전되고, 잔인하게 취급 당하고 있습니다. 또 보약이라는 미명하에 아직도 개와 고양이를 산채로 끓는 물에 집어넣고 있습니다. 아무런 의학적 효과가 증명된 바 없음에도 불구하고 무지하고 잘 속아넘어가는 사람들은 여전히 효험이 있다고 믿고 있습니다.

    이러한 관행은 오늘날 어디에서도 찾아볼 수 없는 일입니다. 대만이나 필리핀 같은 다른 아시아 국가들은 이미 개고기와 개고기 관련 산업을 금지시켰습니다. 한국이 왜 이러한 나라들이나 다른 문명 사회보다 뒤쳐진 채로 남아있는지 이해할 수가 없습니다.

Koreans are vile, dead hearted people to allow barbaric treatment to living, breathing, feeling dogs and cats. Your people are filthy, ignorant, and lack any form of normal human compassion Korea is a complete disgrace to a civilized world. Why aren’t you educating and promoting kindness to all animals who share the planet, instead of training future cruel, idiot butchers??? The worlds vision of Korea is of an evil, foul, disgusting country with no honor.
    What’s wrong with you people? There will be a special place in Hell for those who torture helpless animals!

    Dear Korean Government Officials:

    As an American citizen, I am angry and appalled over the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea. Every day on social media we are hearing of horrific abuse and seeing shocking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. (for example see: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q )

    Even though Korea has an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, it is meaningless as the Korean government does not enforce it. As a consequence dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and brutally treated by farmers and slaughterers. In addition, both dogs and cats are still being boiled alive for so-called elixirs having no medical properties except in the minds of gullible
    customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Yet, all this goes on in the open and the Korean government does nothing to stop it. Why? Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that promotes it. Why not Korea?

    It is the responsibility of the Korean government to end the abhorrently cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea and start taking animal welfare seriously. This means educating its citizens about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals humanely. Until these things are done Korea’s reputation in the international community will deservedly suffer.

    I urge you and the people of Korea to hearken to the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi who said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    Americans love their companion animals, dogs and cats alike. But it is not only for that reason we feel a special obligation to speak out on this issue. It is also that we remember well our many loved ones whose lives were sacrificed in your country insuring your freedom, and are mindful of the considerable treasure our country continues to spend for that same purpose. We can only pray that so much sacrifice has been worth the cost.

    Until the illegal dog meat and cat medicine industries have been finally abolished in Korea, I will boycott all Korean products and companies as well as the 2018 Olympics. I also intend to urge everyone I know to urge everyone they know, etc. to do the same. In addition I will unceasingly lobby our own government to do whatever is within its power to persuade Korea to join the civilized nations of the world with respect to its treatment of companion animals.

    Thank you for your time. The favor of your reply is requested.

    Sincerely,

    Tracy Trinh

    A country`s advancement is measured by its treatment to all living beings. These animals breath the same air as we all do. Drink our same water . Walk the same earth. They give us comfort and unconditional LOVE . Cows ,pigs ,goats and chickens and even the fish that swim the waters should not be tortured. Yes we ( not me ) eat animals ,but the cats and dogs are held closer to the human heart for many century`s . They sleep ,eat live in our homes. They protect us,.Many will die in our protection. Wake up! This is a outrage! As old as your country is, much older then most, you know better then to allow this legally to continue. Please ,stop. May your hearts fill with compassion . May your hearts ADVANCE to a higher level. That is my prayer for you and these innocent sweet animals. What would the BUDA do ?

    I have never in my life seen such horrendous cruelty to any sentient Being. Especially a potentially loving and loyal Being such as a dog. It is not enough to expect other cultures to accept the eating of dog meat….after all, those other cultures eat sheep, cows, pigs, etc. But what is the main issue here is the deliberate and most dreadful torture these animals endure -sometimes with their deaths deliberately prolonged (for culinary taste reasons??) This cruelty has to be the worst the world has ever seen, with the possible exception of how Concentration camp victims were treated in the 2nd world war, or the way psychopaths treat their victims.
    I cannot BELIEVE a 21st century nation allows such things to occur.

    대한민국 정부 관계자 분들 에게,

    다음 의 동영상 을 봐 주시기 바랍니다. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
    저는 대한민국 에서는 반려 동물 을 고문 하고 잡아 먹는다 는 사실 을 접하고 엄청난 충격 을 받았습니다. 산재 해 있는 소셜 미디어 를 통해서 한국 에 있는 아무런 죄 없는 개 들이 고문 당하고 죽임 당하는 끔찍하고 가슴 아픈 장면 이 담긴 사진 과 동영상 을 매순간 접하고 있습니다.

    비록 한국 이 반려 동물 에 대한 동물 보호법 을 제정 했지만 개 들은 여전히 ​​개 농장 주인 과 도살 업자 에게 구타 당하고, 목 매달리고, 감전 되고, 잔인 하게 취급 당하고 있습니다. 또 보약 이라는 미명 하에 아직도 개와 고양이 를 산채 로 끓는 물 에 집어 넣고 있습니다. 아무런 의학적 효과 가 증명 된 바 없음 에도 불구 하고 무지 하고 잘 속아 넘어가 는 사람들 은 여전히 ​​효험 이 있다고 믿고 있습니다.

    이러한 관행 은 오늘날 어디 에서도 찾아 볼 수 없는 일 입니다. 대만 이나 필리핀 같은 다른 아시아 국가 들은 이미 개고기 와 개고기 관련 산업 을 금지 시켰 습니다. 한국 이 왜 이러한 나라 들이나 다른 문명 사회 보다 뒤쳐진 채로 남아 있는지 이해할 수가 없습니다.

    한국 에서 이 잔인 하기 짝 이 없는 개고기 산업 과 고양이 로 만든 보약 산업 을 영원히 근절 시키는 것은 대한민국 정부 의 책임 입니다. 이와 관련된 산업 과 혐오 식품 을 둘러싼 어리석은 괴담 과 주장 을 떨쳐 버릴 때 입니다. 낙후 되고 불필요한 전통 은 과감히 버릴 때 입니다.

    그리고 동물 복지 문제 를 심각 하게 받아 들여서 한국 사회 가 자비 롭고 윤리적 인 사회 라는 것을 보여줄 때 입니다. 즉, 한국 정부 가 대중 들 에게 반려 동물 의 중성화 의 중요성, 유기 금지, 동물 에 대한 적절한 취급 에 대해 더 나은 교육 을 시작할 때라 는 뜻 입니다.

    그렇지 않으면 한국 은 국제 사회 에서 계속 해서 나쁜 평판 을 이어 가게 될 것 입니다. 한국 국민 들 역시 수치 와 곤란 함 을 겪게 될 겁니다. 한국 이 근대화 되었고 국제화 된 사고 를 도입 하려 함에도 불구 하고 여전히 “제 3 세계 후진국가” 로 인식 될 것 입니다. 한국 정부 와 국민 들이 법정 스님 의 가르침 을 배우기 를 촉구 합니다. 법정 스님 의 개 식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/ . 또 한 한국 분이 쓴 글 도 읽어 보시기 바랍니다. 생명 의 고통 이 있는 곳에 … http://koreandogs.org/info/info-in-korean- 한글 – 정보 / эссе-на-собака-мясо /

    저는 개와 고양이 에 대한 학대 가 한국 에서 완전히 사라 지기 전까지 한국 제품 을 구매 하지 않을 것이고 한국 회사 를 이용 하거나 한국 을 방문 하지 않을 것 입니다.

Civilized society does not allow nor condone this behaviour. Get it stopped now. Start by outlawing it and prosecuting those who practise this miserable behaviour.

    The unnecessary-(there are other ways), brutal torture is horrific. Dogs detect cancer cells, protect, rescue, assist, and serve humans in many aspects of life, some are heroes. They sense emotions, empathize, and love. They give comfort, companionship, happiness and joy to many who have no one else. Therefore, many dogs’ behavior is better than many people’s. They do not deserve torture. It is not honorable behavior by the ‘people’ who commit these horrible crimes. Violence leads to more violence – not good for any country.
