Hampyeong’s response to our petition on epeople
Below is Hampyeong’s response to our petition: Hampyeong, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.
They replied by stating that it was difficult to respond to the issue raised in our petition at the local government level. They continued, that with regard to illegal dog and cat slaughter, they are currently instructing/supervising in accordance with the provisions of the Animal Protection Act and that they plan to strengthen their efforts.
This is very vague and typical response from the Korean government, citing a lack of relevant laws for their failure to close down dog meat industry. This is inaccurate as well as shamefully indifference. Click HERE for the legal information by the Korea Animal Rights Advocates.
Our campaign is still effective because now they are aware that the eyes of the world are watching what’s going on in their county’s dog meat industry. Let’s keep up the pressure by taking action!
