Sister State Campaign – Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea

Premier of South Australia: Tell Sister State, Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to 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.

Chungcheongnam-do Governor Hee-Jung An

Chungcheongnam-do Governor Hee-Jung Ahn

Chungcheongnam-do Province of South Korea became a sister state with South Australia, Australia in 1999.

This, despite the fact that Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat trade.

In South Korea, home to global companies such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, and POSCO, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry, and the profound indifference of the majority of South Koreans who do nothing to stop this. One of the provinces that supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Chungcheongnam-do.

Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Click HERE to watch undercover videos from an auction market that trades dogs for meat in Cheonan, Chungcheongnam-do. There are no words to describe the daily horror of this “Hell On Earth.” And there are so many dog meat markets, farms and slaughterhouses like these all around Chungcheongnam-do.

Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Chungcheongnam-do and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific of ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive. Cheonan, Gongju, Hongseong, Nonsan, Yaesan, Gyeryong, Taean, Geumsan, Dangjin; and on goes the list of cities in Chungcheongnam-do where these terrible atrocities are perpetrated.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

Dear Hon. Premier Jay Weatherill and the Ministers of South Australia:

Please watch the below undercover video from your Sister state, Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea: https://youtu.be/9cfDt1_NNvY

South Australia should not be a sister state to any province that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Chungcheongnam-do Governor Hee-Jung Ahn to close down all 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 cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://goo.gl/tochZR
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you,

    Hard to believe that this is still happening in the 21st century.

    South Korea has to end this barbaric torture and killing of dogs and cats for consumption with pressure from all their sister states globally. Human decency must prevail and to give up is not an option. Every decent person has a duty to speak out and strongly condemn this gruesome killings of helpless pets which we would not do ourselves. This is shameful and so cruel that it shocks us to the core that this could still be allowed in these developed cultures and countries who are part of the international community of a supposedly civilised world. There should be no exceptions to humanity or for such gruesome abhorrent animal cruelty , not even in the name of trade.

    I’m tired of hearing this is a “culture” issue! Any human, that abuses and eats dogs and cats is mentally ill – simple as that! BTW, Australia is gearing up to kill off 2 million feral cats… Premier Jay needs to take a more active stance at the animal abuses occurring in his own country as well…

    Australia isn’t as civilised as they’d like us to believe. I’ve read quite a lot about there treatment of animals, they just don’t care.

    Aren’t there enough food sources available that you don’t have to eat poor innocent dogs. It’s just sickening!

    awful !it must be stopped !!! there’s a responsability of all of us !!! especially the governments of the whole world are concerned !!! if they do nothing it means the the money and the “good relationship” with the uncivilised countries are more important that humanity !!! Abraham Lincoln said ” I’am in favor of animal rights as well as humain rights. That is the way of a whole humain being” but it was long time before !!! where is this kind of noblesse now ?!! the politics don’t care about the animals like the famous Lincoln, Gandhi, Vicor Hugo and others !!! they think only about their situation and money !! that is the true !!!
