Incheon, South Korea became a Sister City with Anchorage in 1986, despite the fact that Incheon, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat cruelty.

In South Korea, home to global companies such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry, and the profound indifference of the majority of South Koreans who does nothing to stop this. One of the cities which supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Incheon.

Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Watch the videos below from dog farms and slaughterhouses in Incheon. There are no words to describe the daily horror of these “Hell On Earth.” And there are so many dog restaurants, slaughterhouses, farms and meat markets like these all around Incheon.

Moonhak-dong Incheon Dog Slaughterhouse_1Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Incheon and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific of ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

Dear Mayor Ethan Berkowitz:

Please watch the below videos from dog farm/slaughterhouses in Incheon, South Korea: https://youtu.be/rq5-YeKf3jc, https://youtu.be/ldblUoQ2tvo
Also watch the below undercover video from the South Korea’s dog meat industry: https://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q

Anchorage should not be a Sister City to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Incheon Mayor Jeong-Bok Yoo to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/anchorage-mayor-ethan-berkowitz-tell-sister-city-incheon-s-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-torture-and-consumption-of-dogs

    PLEASE stop the abuse and killing of family members. That’s what cats and dogs are, not just pets.
