Illegal slaughter of 7,200 black goats and dogs in the middle of downtown Seoul

‘Health Food Centers’ carrying out illegal slaughter in the heart of a residential area in Seoul are caught. For the past 7 years, they have illegally slaughtered 7,200 dogs and black goats. TV Chosun, Sang-Bae Lee reports.

An alley in Seoul Jegi-dong. In small cages next to a building, dozens of dogs and black goats are locked up. As we enter inside, we can see that steamer and fur removal rotating drum used for slaughter scattered around. All of these are illegal slaughter equipment that are unlicensed.

In these two ‘Health Food Centers’ 1,400 black goats were illegally slaughtered. If you combine the dogs which is not punishable, the number of animals slaughtered reaches 7,200.

“Look at these dog furs!”
They have been avoiding crackdown by showing frozen black goats that are slaughtered at licensed slaughterhouses. Within 10m surrounding these businesses where the illegal slaughter was taking place, there are large multiplex housings.

Local residents had to suffer from noises and foul odor due to the slaughter that was being carried out day and night without stopping.

“This wasn’t a joke. We had to blocking our noses when we pass these places. The sound of fur removal drum was very loud as well. Doodoodoodoo…”

“Unlicensed slaughter may put your health at risk with various bacterial and viral risks.”

Special Judicial Police of Seoul indicted without detention ‘Health Food Center’ owner Lee OO and two others who have been carrying out illegal slaughter.

    what’s wrong with this people..if it was the only mistake there,they’re only complaining of odour and noise..for heavens sake, animals are tortured and brutally killed there!! that’s the problem..how can you hold your nose and run away? what would you do if it was human who is killed in this place on daily basis? what’s the difference?..the only way needed to change this is Korean people’s attitude toward animals generally..I’m aware and I’m against all the cruelty all over the world going on ,it happens in the western and eastern countries as well but the way the man in the street taking this matter lightly in Korea is what makes me sick and tired..wake up! you are a brilliant and sensitive nation,come to your senses at once!!!!
