    Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee: Take a stand in PyeongChang 2018 against the dog and cat meat trade!

    Dear Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee:

    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://www.change.org/p/chinese-taipei-olympic-committee-taipei-olympic-committee-take-a-stand-in-pyeongchang2018-against-the-dog-cat-meat-trade
    The favor of your reply is requested.
    Thank you,

    Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee: 在2018平昌冬季奧運反對狗和貓肉的販賣!

    Chinese Taipei Olympic Committee:

    南韓,平昌,將在2018年主辦世界冬季奧運會。這麼一個大規模的,包括了精英運動員,運動愛好者,政府和企業的國際聚會,然而它也是一個獨特的平台可用作為採取一個有意義的立場來反對韓國被廣受譴責,野蠻和不人道的狗和貓肉販賣。

    我們知道你正在忙於準備這場巨大的體育盛事。但是,我們敦促你備用幾分鐘的時間觀看此視頻作為人類對動物的憐憫,無論牠們的生存是為了我們的消費,還是作為我們的同伴,工作夥伴或守護者,我們知道你也會同意目前參與這個中世紀工業的人們之做法和態度是完全不能接受和令人憎惡的。
    http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/tEaa1GJo-Uo

    沒有任何一類生物應該生存在這樣的酷刑般環境中。這些由誕生開始至最終被殘酷屠宰的狗隻,每天都被迫忍受最極端的剝奪及難以想像般的虐待; 這些狗(我們最好的朋友)是密室養殖的 – 牠們被困在極度狹窄及骯髒的層疊式獸籠之中,牠們一生中都沒有受到任何保護而且受盡極端天氣的煎熬。牠們是在没有水,沒有運動,更沒有醫療照顧的環境下生存。而且它們的耳膜被人們故意弄破以防牠們發出吠聲。 狗隻們經常是在牠們的同伴眼前活活被電擊,吊掛,毆打,切皮,或燒焦至死,而這些惡行是全因為有一群無知的人們相信這樣的受苦會使狗肉的味道更好。 你能想像這些事情發生在你最好的朋友身上嗎?

    這個行業絕不是小規模的,成千上萬的狗隻每天都是以這種工廠方式養殖,並且它也沒有提供或重視使用最最基本和最微薄的人道方法來操作農場。這種貿易在沒有根據地來促進韓國人民的“文化”或傳統,它純粹是由貪婪和利潤所驅動的。 這個逃避納稅,嚴重管制不足的貿易行業,本身也是高度不衛生的,對人和動物的健康也存在嚴重風險。

    請不要故意忽視這個問題,請不要看這個問題為“文化差異”,我們敦促你用諸般的同情看看這個問題,並使用任何方式或方法,將你的聲音添加到已經在韓國呼籲變革的許多人里。這個請願只是一個開始,我們敦促你添加你的聲音到社交媒體和其他運動。請使用這個獨特的機會來幫助改變許多被迫陷入在肉類販賣中的貓狗生命。如果韓國知道世界正在監視他們並要求改變,如果韓國希望被尊重為一個有良心的國家,韓國人需要加強他們那些糟透及過時的動物福利法,並永久禁止狗和貓的食用。請幫助我們帶來這個改變!

    在線的請願招請你支持結束南韓國貓狗肉貿易裡可怕的動物虐待現正進行: https://www.change.org/p/chinese-taipei-olympic-committee-taipei-olympic-committee-take-a-stand-in-pyeongchang2018-against-the-dog-cat-meat-trade
    請求你關切的回覆。
    謝謝!
