    Dear South Korean Government,
    Please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
    I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.
    With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country.

    Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies?

    It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions.

    And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and showing that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner.

    Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

    We urge you and the people of S. Korea to learn the teachings of venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest: Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest’s Argument Against Dog Meat Consumption http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong/ 법정스님의 개식용 반대론 http://koreandogs.org/beopjeong-korean/.
    Please also read this written by your own citizen: 생명의 고통이 있는 곳에… http://koreandogs.org/info/info-in-korean-한글-정보/essay-on-dog-meat/

    From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean companies or visit Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended. Lucia Novakova

    I contact you today to beg you to take action against the South Korean dog and cat meat industry, which is responsible for the deaths of approximately two and a half million dogs a year for meat or gaesoju, a dog wine or broth, and thousands of cats for so-called “health” tonics or goyangyeesoju, and soup, operating in a sordid and illicit world where farmers and butchers kill with frightening impunity in the most brutal fashion.
    Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched. At Moran Market, South Korea’s largest open air-market for dog meat, dog carcasses are on display next to the cages of live dogs. Cats are often bludgeoned and thrown into boiling water while still alive. At the farms, dogs are fed germ-infested, rotting, and fermented human leftovers, a health risk to both the dogs and those who eat them. http://koreandogs.org/
    According to the Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)’s comprehensive study on S. Korean dog meat industry;
    “Using electric rods did not instantly kill the dog. First contact to electric rod did paralyze the dog but dogs were still conscious. In most cases, two to three contacts with electric rod will finally make the dog motionless. Duration of electrocution differed by slaughter houses. First contact is within two seconds, and follow-on contact required longer contacts. At some slaughterhouses with poor electricity system, the dog did not lose consciousness after using electric shock. Rather it tried to bite off the electric rod. It is one cruel episode that proved electrocution does not instantly kill the animal. According to our research, electric shock is followed by plucking, where whole process took two to five minutes. Dogs can hardly be dead in such a short period of time. In such cases, dogs are paralyzed but still conscious to suffer from the pain of plucking and die.”
    Here the plucking or removal of fur is done by throwing the dog often paralyzed and unable to move but still conscious into the boiling water and then into the rotating drum that removes the fur. This is a terrifying and excruciating experience beyond imagination.
    Sometimes unconscious but still alive dogs are blow torched to remove fur.
    You can see an evidence of this cruelty from this video of raid by a Korean TV broadcast company and an animal rights group in Korea called Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE): http://youtu.be/ldblUoQ2tvo
    Please view this video that shows the dogs being transported to Seongnam Moran market (the largest dog meat market in the country) during the pitch darkness of the night, taken one by one out of the cages where they were packed unable to move for many hours, electrocuted and thrown into boiling water. Some of these dogs thrown into the boiling water could be still alive and able to feel the excruciating pain and terror of being boiled alive. http://youtu.be/vHB3uwB9kyA (At 6:17 this scene starts).
    According to the CARE’s report from their year long undercover investigation last October (visiting total of 82 locations of dog meat farms, markets, slaughterhouses,..) of dog meat industry, FAQ #7, “Electric shock brings extreme pain, and dogs often remain conscious throughout repeated applications. It is known that in some cases, dogs stay perfectly conscious even when they are put in boiling water or hair removal machines.”
    Cruelty happens at all stages at S. Korean dog meat industry. Here are few videos showing the cruelty during the transport and at the market:
    http://youtu.be/uKCdAGfGOsQ
    http://youtu.be/cJnp87OSn58
    http://youtu.be/wuZTUuyB484
    In addition to the unspeakable cruelty perpetrated dog meat trade is also a serious threat to human health. Dog farms are hotbed for infectious diseases. Since there is no disease control these dogs suffer from diseases from highly infectious and transmittable bacteria, virus, ectoparasites, endoparasites, and fungi. Out of 165 dogs bred at a dog farm in Seoul area, 83 dogs(50.3%) were infected with endoparasites and 23 dogs(20.2%) were infected with heart worm.
    Locked in cages for months, dogs are bored and stressed from being packed with other dogs and constant stench. Stress hormone weakens their immune system and they become susceptible to hormonal diseases such as hyperadrenocorticism.
    Large dose of heavy metal that accumulated in the organs and caused internal body malfunction is detected in dog meat. Heavy metal is assumed to have been accumulated from eating leftover food waste and low-end feed (remains from slaughter houses). Many serious and often life threatening diseases can be attributable to this unsanitary and inhumane dog meat industry and they include animal bites and scratches, Bubonic Plague, Camphylobacter, Cutaneous larval migrans, Giardiasis, Lyme Disease, Psittacosis, Rabies, Salmonellosis, Shigellosis, Visceral Larva Migrans, Anthrax, Bebesiosis, Brucellosis, Colibacilosis,… Read the extensive research report by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf.

    There is no appropriate animal-protection legislation to prevent the animal cruelty currently taking place in S. Korea. As someone who believes strongly that animals should not be treated in this way, I request that UN organizations investigate and address this issue immediately. Please sanction S. Korean government until they strengthen the Animal Protection Law to prevent animal cruelty and to introduce basic animal-protection regulations. It must also provide penalties for violations and ensure that mistreated animals can be legally seized from abusers and given immediate refuge. I request that UN organizations insist S. Korean Government to create an enforceable law to ban the torture, killing, sale, and consumption of dogs and cats. Please don’t let the S. Korean government get away with this outrageous cruelty to companion animals.

    Dear Korean Government Officials:

    As an American citizen, I am angry and appalled over the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea. Every day on social media we are hearing of horrific abuse and seeing shocking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. (for example see: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q ). I POST THEM REGULARLY TO CREATE AWARENESS AND ADVOCATE FOR CHANGE.

    Even though Korea has an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, it is meaningless as the Korean government does not enforce it. As a consequence dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and brutally treated by farmers and slaughterers. In addition, both dogs and cats are still being boiled alive for so-called elixirs having no medical properties except in the minds of gullible
    customers.

    These practices have no place in the modern world. Yet, all this goes on in the open and the Korean government does nothing to stop it. Why? Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that promotes it. Why not Korea?

    It is the responsibility of the Korean government to end the abhorrently cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea and start taking animal welfare seriously. This means educating its citizens about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals humanely. Until these things are done Korea’s reputation in the international community will deservedly suffer.

    I urge you and the people of Korea to hearken to the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi who said: “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

    Americans love their companion animals, dogs and cats alike. But it is not only for that reason we feel a special obligation to speak out on this issue. It is also that we remember well our many loved ones whose lives were sacrificed in your country insuring your freedom, and are mindful of the considerable treasure our country continues to spend for that same purpose. We can only pray that so much sacrifice has been worth the cost.

    Two and a half million South Korean dogs are electrocuted, hanged, or beaten to death each year. They are killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because many South Koreans believe the insidious myth that the more an animal suffers, the tastier the meat and that the medical properties will be enhanced. Thousands of cats are also slaughtered for soups and so-called “health” tonics. They are thrown into boiling water while still alive.

    The practice of eating dogs is not widely accepted in South Korea. It gained popularity after the South Korean War. The practice continues to thrive with the aid of greedy restaurateurs, meat dealers, and butchers.

    Over the last decade, many in South Korea have embraced the notion of dogs and cats as animal companions. But we must take action to persuade the South Korean government to legalize a ban on dog and cat meat and forever stop this technically illegal, corrupt, and sordid industry.

    It is appalling that dogs and cats should be kept in filthy crates, forced to watch their cage mates being tortured and slaughtered. Eyewitnesses have reported dogs being literally torn apart while still alive, their tormentors saying that the more prolonged the torment of death, the better the taste. This attitude toward any living being is at best unforgivable

    Until the illegal dog meat and cat medicine industries have been finally abolished in Korea, I will boycott all Korean products and companies as well as the 2018 Olympics. I also intend to urge everyone I know to urge everyone they know, etc. to do the same. In addition I will unceasingly lobby our own government to do whatever is within its power to persuade Korea to join the civilized nations of the world with respect to its treatment of companion animals.

    Thank you for your time. The favor of your reply is requested.

    Sincerely,

    Kim Venturo

    Please, all government officials and people of South Korea, please stop the merciless torture and killing of innocent dogs and cats. There is no acceptable or moral reason for this kind of cruelty. No living creature, human or non-human, ever deserves to be tortured, to live their lives in misery until they are tortured and killed. No matter what God you believe in, or whomever or whatever you believe makes this world go round, that God or other being or the universe itself, would not condone it. To slaughter any living being with total lack of compassion or conscience, is abominable behavior and speaks to the decay of the nation that allows, or even condones it. Please, please, for the sake of all living creatures in this world, stop this horrific behavior. Thank you.

    A nation is judged by the way it treats its animals no nation treats its animals as should be but the torture used by China and Asia is inhumane and evil.I am NOT surprised at China who are heartless, cruel, empty and evil as this is a nation who are barbaric and behind the time,that the rest of Asia are as bad as China shows how suppressed you all are from this cruel powerful nation.Join the 21 st century move on and respect all life animals feel pain and fear.

    Jamais je ne pourrais faire du tourisme dans votre pays.

    Comment peut-on se détendre , être heureux , passer de bons moments dans un pays où je serais malade de voir toute cette cruauté envers les chiens.

    Je ne peux comprendre de telles pratiques, c’ est incompréhensible, innaceptable pour de nombreuses personnes sur cette planête et vous ne faites rien pour que cela cesse.

    Vous n’ avez aucune pitié envers ces chiens, alors que nous , nous les protégeons.

    Ces actes me rendent malade et je ne voudrais jamais en être témoin car j’ aurais toujours ces images en tête.

    Korea you disgust us, you should hang your heads in shame. I only wish that all of you involved in this industry and those who buy from you would be crushed into a cage without mercy and tortured and then you might stop and think how it feels to these terrified animals that are in unbelievable pain. If only it would happen to you, just try to comprehend it. STOP. Shame on you. You have no respect, you get no respect.

    We all know that getting in other counties affars is impolite. But the South Korea is one of the modernest counties in the whole world. Why don’t you simpathy to these creatures? They are innoncent angels who love their owners more than themselves. If you don’t want to stop this sadistic, cruel tradition. PLEASE try make for them better condition and deaths not in such cruel way. THey are alive and feel everything – pain, fear, starving. All creatures on the Earth deserve painfulless death. Stop cruely! Cruelty creates cruely, nothing kind at all! Let’s be PEOPLE
