Sister City Campaign – Seongnam, South Korea – Aurora, Colorado

Aurora Mayor Steven Hogan and Aurora City Council Members: Tell Sister City Seongnam, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

Seongnam Mayor Jae-Myung Lee

Aurora, Colorado became sister city to South Korea’s Seongnam in 1992.

Click HERE for Press Release “Aurora Sister Cities International to host Korean Open House”!

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”.

The searches resulted in: 176 Health Food Centers; and 76 restaurants in and around the city of Seongnam.

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.

    To: Mayor Steve Hogan,

    Please end the Brutal inhumane dog meat trade in your sister state of Seongnam, South Korea.

    We are calling on you and your council staff here to please act humanely and compassionately to convince the Mayor of your sister state in South Korea to come into the 21st century and accept Dogs as human companions who are with us to enhance and assist humans in their daily lives and not food. It is disturbing and confronting to see the barbaric suffering dogs have to endure to be eaten by the South Koreans! As civilised modern society and human beings we cannot tolerate this shocking cruelty to dogs when we all adore and need our own dogs to assist us in our lives.

    We are expressing our deep disappointment that your state of AURORA has not reacted to this truly abhorrent practice and acted to convince the mayor that we cannot accept this heinous cruelty as a sister state. South Koreans will look to your reaction as a guidance on this issue and any act of being complacent would signal to them that you and the USA approves of this horrific practice of animal cruelty. You are in a position to change this abhorrence as you work with this sister city in an attempt to complement each others progress. As long as Seongnam continues with this despicable practice of eating dogs, Aurora cannot truly be a sister state because the values, development, attitudes, societal standards, civility would be incompatible making both states dissimilar in the foundation of a civilised society! If Aurora continues to be the sister state of Seongnam whilst this horrendous cruelty to dogs in this brutal dogs eating culture continues then the values of Aurora would be compromised reducing this state to a backward state of no compassion, no integrity and lack of the basic traits which makes us civilised compassionate humans.

    Therefore we are appealing for you to act in the interest of human decency and compassion for dogs in Seongnam and ask the mayor Mr Jae- Myung Lee to pass and enforce tough Legislations to make any form of dog and cat eating and all forms of animal cruelty to be “illegal” with severe punishment for all those who continue with this gruesome confronting cruelty to dogs and cats. This issue demands legislative recognition immediately and we trust that as a mayor in the USA, you would not have any reservations in bringing this issue to the authorities there. The respect of the USA by South Korea should be high to attract the attention of the South Korean authorities stimulating them to examine this dark age truly barbaric practices to retain the international respect of their country.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    Kind Regards
    Anne Grice (MBA)

To see these poor animals treated in such a brutal, cruel and inhumane way is sickening and I am sure you do not wish to associate yourself with this shocking trade, being a sister state looks as though you are supporting such a vile trade so please act in some way to help these cats and dogs, they have no voice so we must speak for them and help them to be saved from such wicked suffering.

    I could not watch any of the video’s because my heart could not take the pain and suffering of these poor innocent animals. My spirit cries out for them. And the sad thing is that we support this evil and barbaric country. We fought for the freedom of these evil people and this is how they show love for a life? They all need to be napalmed as far as I’m concerned. They fought for theirs and if I am not mistaken they are STILL under the same fear of oppression from North Korea. Guess you have to wonder why? You reap what you sow, and each dog that they have tortured and abused, each life they joyfully took for the avaricious greed of man is a seed that they have sown against their own lives. Seeds produce a harvest, so you can believe that they are going to have some REALLY UGLY harvests!!!

    As a Dog owner of many years I see the Dog Meat Trade as totally out of step with what we in the West consider Humane.

    These animals are sensitive to everything that is going on around them or happening to them directly and they are among the only animal that is able to read facial expression of humans, therefore actually knowing what is intended.

    I know from personal experience that all Dogs have an inner sense which is why they have been adopted by humans for so many years as companions.

    It is also a direct reflection on the integrity of a society on how they treat their animals, the stance of your Governing Body is under a huge cloud of suspicion all the while you do nothing to put a stop to this barbaric trade in animal cruelty.

    It is very easy to close ones eyes and pretend that this is not happening, it will obviously cause many who accept the insidious trade as normal to object most strongly and cause them to be loathed to accept a better and a more humane way of accepting the companionship of these animals.

    Finally in my opinion there is nothing normal in killing and eating what is know in the West as Man’s Best Friend.

    It is with that thought in mind I call upon you to step up and show the rest of the world that Korea has joined the Twenty First Century and put an end to what can only be viewed as a blight on Korean Society.

Nothing deserves such a horrendous existence and death. These people need to be held accountable for their actions. An eye for an eye.

    More and more, albeit slowly, the world is learning of these brutal atrocities and strongly urging S. Korea to close these monstrous farms. For additional information, please read the following recent article, dated March 21, 2015, in The Wall Street Journal (Asia), “Dog Farmers in South Korea Offered a Way Out As Canine Cuisine Fades.” TOGETHER WE CAN ABOLISH THE DRACONIAN, IRRATIONAL, VIOLENT, MERCILESS, TORTUROUS DOG&CAT MEAT FARMS.

    LIVES ARE DEPENDING ON US.

  51. I hope for all the vile cruelty handed out by these monsters one day they will pay the price for what they do. Pleas god do something to dam these people.

    Sending emails to these people. This confronting excruciating torture of dogs and cat cannot be tolerated, where is the humanity in this nation? South Korea cannot allow this is barbarism to dogs and cats to continue for food if it expects respect from the international community. We have to boycott their vehicles to get their attention and understand that we are dead serious about stopping this abhorrence which not even the savages in the dark ages did!

    this is my email: Dear Mayor Steve Hogan and Members of the Aurora City Council:

    Please watch the undercover video from the Moran Market in Seongnam, South Korea: http://youtu.be/UKSGgsjnJlY

    One of the things that has made America such a role model in the world is our compassion toward those who are vulnerable and defenseless. We need to continue to be the voice that says cruelty of any kind is not acceptable. It is said that you are judged by those you are associated with, and to think that the city of Aurora is a sister city to a brutal and barbaric society, means that Aurora has forgetton it’s responsiblity as a civilized city of compassion that stands up for justice. Instead as sister city you are supporting the purposeful suffering of millions of animals. Daily they are skinned, torched, boilded and cut up while still alive. These animals suffer greatly and then end up on someone’s dinner plate. I ask that you open your eyes to the truth. Choosing to be associated with such an inhumane act of cruelty is irresponsible. It is shameful when we don’t protect those who can’t protect themselves. Moran dog meat market is the worse torture chamber there is and this evil must be closed down. the dog meat trade is already illegal and if you continue supporting this kind of criminal activity, you are involved with criminals.

    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

    I submit this emial with the assumption that you too are compassionate toward animals and are willing to do what you can to stop this brutality.
    Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    Horrific and shameful for a society to allow this brutality and hate against animals — it’s insane, merciless, shameful, immoral — you have many options available to you and STILL you savagely, torturously kill dogs and cats — where’s the clear thinking? where’s the compassion?

    This is truly the most evil of most evils. These people have no morals and care nothing for what God put on this earth. But one day, and I hope very soon they will pay for all of these evil acts and will endure pain and suffering forever. There are no words for what these people are.

    Blasted country is full of the living dead, as it says in Revelations; my Guru, Sathya Sai Baba calls them living corpses. A Tibetan Buddhist Lama/Priest calls them “demons”; in short, blasted zombies! Even Neanderthals didin’t behave like this. Totally sick, depraved, demented, deranged individuals! Horrific. The UN must do something about this. Poor babies – it’s so wrong that animals are largely ignored in this mad world.
