Sister State Campaign – Gyeongsangnam-do, South Korea
Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland: Tell Sister State, Gyeongsangnam-do Province, 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.
This, despite the fact that Gyeongsangnam-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 Gyeongsangnam-do.
Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Click HERE to watch one of four parts undercover video from the Gupo Dog Meat Market in Busan, Gyeongsangnam-do. There are no words to describe the daily horror of this “Hell On Earth.” And there are so many markets like this all around Gyeongsangnam-do.
Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Gyeongsangnam-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. Busan, Yangsan, Gimhae, Jinju, Changwon, Uiryeong; and on goes the list of cities in Gyeongsangnam-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.

Maryland should not be a sister state to any state that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Gyeongsangnam-do Governor Joon-Pyo Hong 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://www.change.org/p/maryland-governor-tell-sister-state-gyeongsangnam-do-province-south-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-the-torture-and-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
