    Comité National Olympique et Sportif Français: Take a stand in PyeongChang 2018 against the dog and cat meat trade!

    Dear Comité National Olympique et Sportif Français:

    PyeongChang, South Korea, set to play host to the world in the 2018 Winter Olympics. An international gathering of elite athletes, sports fans, governments and businesses on such a grand scale is a unique platform for taking a meaningful stand against the widely condemned, barbaric and inhumane dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.

    We know you are busy preparing for this epic sporting event. However, we urge you to spare just a few minutes of your time to watch this video, as fellow people with compassion for animals, whether they are raised for our consumption or as our companions, working partners and guardians, we know you will agree that the current practice and attitude of those involved in this medieval industry is completely unacceptable and abhorrent. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo

    No living being deserves such a torturous existence. Forced to endure the most extreme deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are brutally slaughtered; dogs (our best friends) are battery farmed - imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme elements. They have no access to water, exercise, or medical care. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking. Until, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten skinned or burnt alive in the ignorant belief that such suffering will improve their taste. Could you imagine this happening to your best friend?

    This industry is by no means small scale, thousands upon thousands of dogs are factory farmed in this way every day, there is no emphasis on even the most basic and cheapest humane farming methods in this operation. This trade has no basis in promoting "culture" or tradition of the Korean people, it is purely driven by greed and the profits that can be made in this severely under-regulated, tax free sector which in itself is highly unsanitary and a severe risk to both human and animal health.

    Please do not look the other way, please do not see this issue as a 'cultural difference', we urge you to look at this issue with unbridled compassion and to use whatever means or methods you can to add your voice to the many already calling for change in south Korea. This petition is just a start, we urge you to add your voice to social media and other campaigns. Please use this unique opportunity to help change the lives of so many dogs and cats condemned to a life in the meat trade. If South Korea knows the world is watching and is asking for change, and if South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience, South Koreans need to strengthen their abysmal and outdated animal welfare laws and permanently ban dog and cat consumption. Please help us to bring about this change!

    An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://goo.gl/5F1kMZ

    Thank you,

    Comité National Olympique et Sportif Français : Prenez position contre le commerce de la viande de chien et chat pendant PyeongChang 2018 !

    Comité National Olympique et Sportif Français:

    Pyeongchang, Corée du Sud, se prépare à accueillir les Jeux Olympiques d’Hiver 2018. Un rassemblement international d’athlètes d’élite, d’amateurs de sports, d’industries et de représentants gouvernementaux sur une telle échelle que cet évènement constitue une opportunité unique pour prendre une position significative contre le commerce de la viande de chien et de chat qui est largement condamné et reconnue comme une pratique barbare.

    Nous savons que vous êtes maintenant très occupés à la préparation de cet évènement sportif d’un intérêt mondial. Nous vous demandons, cependant, de bien vouloir partager quelques minutes de votre temps afin de regarder cette vidéo. En tant que personnes ayant de la compassion pour les animaux, qu’ils soient élevés pour la consommation humaine, ou bien comme compagnons, partenaires de travail ou gardiens, nous sommes certains que vous êtes d’accord sur le fait que les pratiques courantes et les attitudes de ceux engagés dans une industrie médiévale sont totalement inacceptables et odieuses. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/0SKVdNrfIZo

    Aucun être vivant ne mérite une existence de torture. Forcés de subir un extrême privation et un tourment inimaginable, du jour de leur naissance jusqu’au jour où ils sont brutalement tués ; ces chiens, fidèles amis de l’homme, sont élevés en batteries – emprisonnés dans des cages surpeuplées, rouillées, ouvertes aux intempéries et aux températures extrêmes sans aucune protection. Ils n’ont pas d’eau, n’ont aucun exercice et ne reçoivent aucune aide médicale. Leurs tympans sont souvent percés pour les empêcher d’aboyer. Jusqu’au moment où, souvent devant les autres chiens, ils sont électrocutés, pendus, battus, dépecés ou brûlés vivants. Et tout cela au nom d’une croyance non-fondée que cette souffrance améliore le goût de la viande. Pouvez-vous, pour un instant, imaginez cette torture infligée à votre meilleur ami ?

    Cette industrie n’est en aucun cas une petite industrie ; des milliers et des milliers de chiens sont élevés en batteries chaque jour. Il n’y a aucun accent sur des méthodes d’élevage même les plus humainement élémentaires et non coûteuses. Ce commerce n’a de base ni ‘culturel’ ni de ‘tradition’ coréenne ; il est purement et simplement poussé par l’avidité et les profits générés par ce secteur sérieusement sous-réglementé, échappant aux impôts, extrêmement insalubre et posant un risque très sérieux à la santé humaine et animale.

    S’il vous plaît, ne tournez pas la tête de l’autre côté ; s’il vous plaît ne voyez pas ce problème comme une ‘différence culturelle’. Nous vous implorons de regarder ce problème avec une compassion sans limite et d’utiliser tous les moyens et toutes les méthodes que vous jugerez nécéssaires pour ajouter votre voix à celles déjà nombreuses demandant des changements en Corée du Sud. Cette pétition est seulement le début et nous vous demandons d’ajouter votre voix sur les médias sociaux et de joindre les campagnes d’action contre ce commerce. S’il vous plaît, utilisez cette opportunité unique pour aider à changer les vies de tant de chiens et de chats condamnés à vivre dans ce cruel commerce. Si la Corée du Sud se sait regardée par le monde qui demande des changements, et si la Corée du Sud veut être respectée en tant que nation ayant une conscience, il lui faut renforcer ses lois sur la protection des animaux, pour le moment épouvantables et arriérées, et bannir de façon permanente la consommation de viande de chien et de chat. Merci de nous aider à provoquer ce changement.

    Une pétition internet demandant votre support pour mettre fin à la cruauté horrifique du commerce de la viande de chien et de chat en Corée du Sud est en cours: https://goo.gl/5F1kMZ.
    Nous vous serions reconnaissants de bien vouloir y repondre.
    Merci d’avance.
