Breaking News
Busan Buk-gu District “Let us shut down
the Gupo Dog Meat Market before Boknal”
 

Kookje News reported on March 12, 2019 that “Busan Buk-gu district has commenced actions to shut down the operations of the Gupo Livestock (Dog Meat) Market before Boknal (the hottest days of the summer). However, it is unclear how effective this will be.”  
 
This is positive news coming from Busan regarding the notorious Gupo Dog Meat Market. But there are still many challenges to face ahead in order to shut it down completely and, as history has repeatedly shown, it is incredibly difficult to change the mentality of the Korean government about animal welfare, which is still firmly stuck in the stone ages!

 
Furthermore, the Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market is only a small part of the whole dog meat industry in Busan (Korean internet search results recently revealed 566 Health Food Shops and 263 dog meat restaurants in and around Busan) and all over South Korea. This is why we must keep the pressure on the Busan and Busan Buk-gu district government as well as each government entity in South Korea to shut down the vile and extremely cruel dog and cat meat industry for good.
 

New Calls for Action
Busan’s 16 Districts need to
end the dog and cat meat cruelty!

 
We are going down to the district level in the Korean government. Cities are made up of multiple administrative districts and we will petition each of them in turn. Below are 5 of the 16 districts in Busan, the second largest and important city in South Korea. Click below to take actions against the Busan Districts’ horrific dog meat industry.
 
 

South Koreans:
Stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.

 
File your petition on e-people
South Korea’s Official Government Petition Page!
 
All across South Korea, millions of ‘meat dogs’ (including newborn puppies) which are destined for human consumption, are kept outdoors in meat farms and slaughterhouses, imprisoned in cages that are crudely constructed of wire and raised off the ground, and which afford no protection from the snow or freezing winds that are part of a normal winter in that country. These poor creatures – from the second they are born, to their final breath at the uncaring hands of a brutal butcher – have to endure endless misery and agony. South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice.
 
A simple but very effective way is to file a petition directly with the Korean government using the epeople online petition page. This is different than other petitions because the Korean government is responsible for responding to you! If they have to address and respond to hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of petitions on this issue; then perhaps they will finally be put under enough pressure to take action to bring this horrific animal cruelty to an end.
