South Korea’s Dog Meat Cruelty-Response received from the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s Office

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to call, email, or write to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon asking for his help in ending South Korea’s horrendously cruel Dog Meat Trade. Click HERE for our campaign to contact the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon!

In response, we received an unsigned form letter from the Public Inquiries Unit of the Department of Public Information of The United Nations, stating that they had carefully read and noted the contents of the many emails and letters. They acknowledged that while they sympathized with our requests, due to protocols they basically could do nothing about the Dog Meat Trade.

Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon is a citizen of South Korea first, before he is Secretary General of the United Nations. If he is not willing to help end the terrible atrocities committed against millions of defenseless companion animals taking place in his own country, how can we trust and respect his character and his ability to lead the United Nations effectively? Without the respect of his own UN staff, how can he motivate and inspire them to perform their jobs in maintaining peace around the world? If the Secretary General of the United Nations doesn’t have the power to help end the dog meat industry in his own country, who does?

Attempting to avoid the issue of his country’s extreme cruelty to man’s best friend by giving weak excuses to all of us dedicated, compassionate animal rights activists is both shameful and disappointing, but it will not stop us!

Let us continue to flood his office with our letters, our phone calls, and our emails, as we know that each letter has to be read and processed, if only to send a form letter in return. We will not be silenced by Secretary General Ban’s indifference and inaction! Click HERE to take action!

This is the worst cruelty done to an animal. How can any type if human being engage in these type of cruel activity. Please ask them to stop. If they don’t have mercy in an innocent defenseless creature. What kind of people are they? If they don’t have mercy on innocent creatures, God won’t have it on them. I’m asking you to please stop this. This is evil. Please stop this!!!!

    There is no reason on earth for anyone to be killing and eating dogs. There is a reason they are called man’s best friend, they are loyal and noble animals who want nothing more than to help and please mankind. You have taken this noble animal and tortured and killed them for the dinner table.
    In todays world no animal should be tortured for any reason let alone to be eaten. This is an atrocity and should be stopped. What is happening in your country is cruel and inhumane and no society should treat any animals in such a way.

It is also obvious that you never saw or did not want to see the petitions sent to you, and the same applies to the reply, which came from the Public Inquiries Unit of the Department of Public Information of The United Nations. The fact that you did not even have the courtesy to sign the reply virtually confirms your attitude.

    One day surely this devouring of our furry friends will result in some sort of disease- maybe only then will they retract from such disgusting gourmet habits.

    You know, I find it quite ironic that you blame South Korea for “eating and treating dogs badly”. Hmm. It just seems to me that you guys are trying to exaggerate a situation that happens in every single country. You blame blame South Korea (Which your hate should actually be directed to a very minuscule population) for mistreating dogs? Ignorant fools. What’s dog fighting then? Should South Korea boycott the United States of America in any international competitions because a small population of Americans participate and watch dog fighting? In that case, no country should even be allowed to hold international sports. Because every country has at least ten of those horrid acts that these inhumane underground organizations participate in. Even so, it is hard for the Korean government to shut down these atrocities. Do you think that Americans are all bad just because dog fighting still exists in America? Or perhaps the American government is all corrupt because since there is still dog fighting in the US, Barack Obama likes dog fighting, hence the fact that dog fighting still exists in the US. Think again before you exaggerate a simple stereotype. Would it make sense if I said that since there’s a foolish association between planes and Muslims, no Muslim or Middle Eastern person should fly a plane, let alone board one? That makes absolutely no sense. Before you people make stupid, childish assumptions about something, make sure that you are looking at the situation at both sides. This is why I find that most people are naive fools. Educate yourselves.

    • Adrian Shiva
      Adrian ShivaMay 18,15

      Hi, Jay. There’s nothing exaggerated about the fact that these animals are being slowly, literally, skinned alive and cooked alive. Sayign they are merely “mistreating” dogs is laughably ridiculous at best. Are you sure you’re not the one making stupid, childish assumptions? Maybe you’re the one who needs to educate himself/herself? You really ought to look up the horrific dog/cat meat torture/trade videos concerning many east and southeast asian countries. If you think it’s exaggerated, you should have no problem comfortably watching dogs and cats being skinned alive, and then cooked alive, without ever feeling the need to look away or cover your ears. If you do feel uncomfortable, then you’re a plain hypocrite. But lucky for you, I’m here to help speed your education.

      Way too many articles trying to bring “awareness” to the insane cruelty prevalent in the Dog and Cat meat trades in many Asian countries such as South Korea and its neighbours, are NOT telling the readers the whole truth. All they say is that these animals are “slaughtered”. What a joke…

      It’s why we’ll keep hearing the ignorant lines again and again: “I see no problem with this. No different than the killing of cows/chickens/pigs in the west. We have no right to tell them what they can or cannot eat.”

      On the other side we’ll also usually keep hearing “Dogs are man’s best friend, they are not food!” Notice I didn’t mention “cats” when I quote this general opinion, this is once again thanks to barely mention of the feline victims of the trade. Also notice hardly mention of the sheer torture. Because both sides usually assume they’re just “killed”. Again this assumption is thanks to lack of awareness because too many articles fail to mention or emphasize these things enough.

      OK. It is no different, in that yes, many different animals, from cows to chickens to dogs and cats and such, suffer and die on farms for our consumption. And yes, they suffer. They are not merely “killed”. That makes it sound too nice.

      But here I will tell you the main difference, why it’s so important to stop the dog and cat meat trade — and trust me on this, because this is coming from someone who turned vegan because I want ALL animals to be free from any kind of suffering/death at the hands of humans, and yet I am putting so much emphasis on the dog and cat meat trade.

      Very few people know of the dog/cat meat trade that thrives in many east Asian countries. They think dogs and cats are just “killed” and “eaten”.
      Of those few people, EVEN FEWER know of the living Hell on earth it is for the dogs and cats there, the insane, sheer *torture*. These dogs and cats are skinned fully while alive and conscious. There is nothing used at all to dull the pain. They are skinned fully conscious, feeling every single thing, all of their skin flayed off their writhing, crying bodies, from face to anus.
      As if that was not Hell enough for them, then comes the live cooking. Living, bloody and writhing, they are usually cooked in one of two ways: in one way, they are roasted over a fire or torched, slowly from the face down their bodies. Very often it is all done slowly.
      In the other way, they are boiled alive. Notice the common “alive” theme here? In the case of cats, after the slow calculated skinning torture, a sharp metal hook is inserted through the lower jaw and into the oral cavity. suspended by the hook in its jaw, the still alive cat is lowered into a pot of boiling, scalding hot water, the lid is placed on the pot keeping the cat trapped in the boiling water so it has no chance of ever managing to climb out. After a minute or two, the lid is removed, the hook lifted, along with the cat… *still alive*.
      You might be thinking this almost seems like the torture is done on purpose. Well, it IS. The torture isn’t some by-product of carelessness. It’s not mere indifference. It’s *encouraged*. The gluttonous belief is that “the greater the suffering, the tastier the meat.” They also believe that the more sheer pain an animal goes through, the greater the blessing of male potency for those who consume the tortured flesh. Many east and southeast asian countries have built a “Torture culture” that has extended to its dealings with all manner of animals, but it especially shows in the dog and cat meat trade.

      For all the readers now learning of this, this why the people who do know how cruel the dog/cat meat trade is are so upset and angry that such a thing exists. You see, it is not merely about the kind of animal. For many people that is an issue, yes, and to a point it should be. Dogs and cats have been domesticated over the centuries, and have evolved alongside us as increasingly more suitable companion animals with something of a symbiotic relationship. We and they have developed bonds with each other, and it’s easier to do so with them than with many other animals. I am not saying one animal is more deserving than the other — I’m merely saying this is the reality of how dogs and cats have evolved alongside us because of humans adopting them since very many centuries ago, since the beginning when dogs were wolves first. They have, basically, been bred to be more dependent on us. They connect with us more easily. They look us in the eye and cry for help when distressed. In the dog and cat meat trade, many of the victims are not even strays — they’re stolen pets. They still wear their collars while being tortured. They are often tricked into being captured, made to trust the captors who pull up next to a dog and coax it with a treat, or place traps with sparrows near residential areas where even curious house cats go to investigate only to become trapped.

      So that is why many people are especially upset about the victims being dogs and cats. But again, no kind of animal deserves such sheer, cruel torture. People like to jump to the defense of “culture” and “tradition” and any nice word that could apparently excuse any amount of animal abuse. No, we have to stop subscribing to popular (and extremely misinformed) opinion, and think for yourselves. Ask yourself if you’d be okay with being abducted, skinned alive, then roasted or boiled while alive. Maybe not you, what if it were your loved one? Your significant other? Your brother or sister, mom or dad… what if your own KIDS were to be skinned and cooked alive? Do you think “respect my beliefs and culture” should justify such cruelty? The dog/cat meat captors are not picky about which dogs/cats, they easily grab all they find, even pregnant dogs and cats, who actually give birth and often miscarriage while they are forcibly stuffed into tiny crates. Many of them die during transportation alone because the animals, seen as purely commodities, are stuffed very tightly, packed in all kinds of twisted contorted positioned, into crates as tiny as possible so as to get as many animals on each truck. Bear in mind, this is not some harmless tradition. This is torturing and killing of animals who never consented to being part of such a culture. Maybe rape in a country should be okay because of “culture”? And I don’t mean “well it depends on your definition of rape”. No. I mean *RAPE*, as in, the victim absolutely does not consent to what is happening to them, is crying and fighting, is in pain and suffering while someone abuses them. Animals never consent to being tortured and killed by us either, and in countries such as South Korea, the dog and cat meat trade is an absolute living HELL for the animals involved. Animals who never wanted to be a part of the “culture”, especially when it involves them being on the receiving end of such excruciating, Hellishly cruel torture, but they have no voice with which to say in words to you that they do not want this. Not that they should have to be able to speak to tell you. I mean, you’d think an animal fighting for its life at first before being beaten to submission, crying and writhing in a world of RED AGONY as it is being skinned alive, should kind of tell you that they obviously do not want to be tortured/killed, no?

      Oh Jay, I agree with you that NO COUNTRY IN THE WORLD is free from atrocities. But when SUCH HORRIFIC CRUELTY takes place on SUCH LARGE SCALE, people NEED TO ACT! I thought Korean law doesnt allow this practice. How is it hard for Korean government to shut this down, when people are able 2take so many pictures of so many people doing this kind of harm? And the pictures of dog farms? I do think that people should adress “a part of Koreans” instead of “Koreans” bcaus I’m sure that a large part o/t population is horrified by this.

    OK we must write to all the ambassadors to ask to take action via the UN. We should mention the argument that it does not only harm the dogs and cats that are tortured to death. Also children who have to witness this kind of things are affected by this – and grown-up people that have not sealed their hearts. When I was young I witnessed the slaughter of pigs. I still can hear them cry. I am 71 by now.

    The world is watching. The recent Yulin China dog meat festival created a firestorm from millions that signed petitions and sent letters of outrage. The majority of Asian citizens are horrified at the dog and cat meat trade, and the civilized world cannot fathom torturing helpless companion animals. This practice brings immense shame to your country. It’s time to relinquish old sadistic customs if you want the respect of billions who now hold nothing but contempt.

I have seen numerous videos of how you treat your animals. You really deserve to be treated in the same manner. Lets see how you like begging to get out of the boiling water, not to get an electric pole jammed up your butt, to not be skinned, all in the nsmr of making money. I will never use or buy another thing that says it was made in your country. I will tell companies and anyone I can find what a fraud you really are. STOP KILLING FOGS AND CATS just because you like it. Until you “take the time out of your busy day” ( your words not mine) to make laws that stop this horrendous behavior and inforce all of tDem.

    Sir, I use that term loosely. You are the most dispicable, cruel and inhumane person I have ever heard of. You pretend that you care about your country and people but care nothing about the dogs and cats that you barbaric people kill everyday to make meat for them just because they “like” it. No animal is safe in your country. You skin and boil dogs, cats, rabbits alive and any other animal you can get your nasty, barbarbic and inhumane hands on. I have seen numerous videos of how you treat your animals. You really deserve to be treated in the same manner. Lets see how you like begging to get out of the boiling water, not to get an electric pole jammed up your butt, to not be skinned, all in the nsmr of making money. I will never use or buy another thing that says it was made in your country. I will tell companies and anyone I can find what a fraud you really are. STOP KILLING DOGS AND CATS just because you like it. Until you “take the time out of your busy day” ( your words not mine) to make laws that stop this horrendous behavior and inforce all of them harshly. Stop living in the old world and bring your people into todays world. You put on a front of how up to date your are and think. It’s just a sham on your part. Be the person that really DOES CARE about the animals. Step up and be a man. STOP KILLING DOGS AND CATS FOR FOOD!!!!!!! Do the right thing!!!

    Pleaseeeeeeeee stop slaughter cats and dogs for meat and meat trades. We, the Americans, say that it is extremely cruel with cats and dogs in Korea and Asia. The Asians don’t understand how the cats and dogs feel. Please leave them alone forever!

    The letter from the Office of Public Inquiries Unit states only the way to go ahead to make a stop to South Korean Dog Meat Trade or any other Countries, where Dog Meat Trade is reported, like China. Nothing else. Nothing emotional or even refusing the request. Without taking the suggestions seriously and getting the support of UN Members through various ways the UN Office and Secretary General Mr Ban Ki-Moon have no grounds to go ahead. That’s the administrative way and has to be respected. On the other hand nobody says that Mr Secretary General Mr Ban Ki-Moon cannot speak his mind and holding a speech about Animal Cruelty in general. It would be not important that Mr Ban Ki-Moon is South Korean by birth but that he is the head of an UN Office and should be refusing brutality as well against Animals – which – in many countries is against the Law. There might be not any protocol against one head of the UN standing up for Animals welfare in general.

    The torture and consumption of dogs and cats in Korea and any other country is appalling, barbaric, cruel and unexplainable in this day and age. The treatment of animals tells the most about human beings nature. This is so sad and disturbing to me and probably 99% of the world. Please make it a law and join the rest of today’s people and stop eating dogs and cats. I will boycott the Olympics until something is done.
    Thank you
