Yet Seongnam, South Korea is responsible for the horrendous torture and killing of dogs and cats. The largest market in South Korea that sells dogs both dead and alive for meat is the infamous “Moran Market” in Seongnam in Gyeonggi-do province. It is estimated that one third of all dog meat consumed in South Korea(2.5 million dogs each year) are distributed through this market. If you have ever wondered what a hell would be like, just take a visit or watch the videos on the Moran Market. This place is a “Hell on Earth” with helpless dogs in cages after cages waiting for the uncaring customers to order them to be slaughtered on the spot by electrocution, hanging, beating, and then thrown into boiling water sometimes while they are still alive. Dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified dogs in cages, in public and in broad daylight. Millions of dogs tortured all their lives in unimaginable misery and agony in dog farms around the country come to meet their tragic and frightening ends at this market. Also, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this market.
A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Seongnam’s dog meat demand.
Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Centers” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants”.
Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in and around Seongnam in order to supply all of these outlets.

Suggested message to the Mayor and the members of the City Council of Aurora
Dear Mayor Steve Hogan and Members of the Aurora City Council:
Please watch undercover video from the Moran Market in Seongnam, South Korea: http://youtu.be/UKSGgsjnJlY
The city of Aurora should not be a sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge the Seongnam Mayor Jae-Myung Lee and Gyeonggi-do Governor Kyung-Pil Nam to close down Moran Dog Meat Market and all other illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and meat trade can be found at: https://www.change.org/p/steven-hogan-stop-the-brutal-dog-and-cat-meat-trade-in-south-korea
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you for your attention to this matter.
