Sister State Campaign – Jeollabuk-do, South Korea

Governors of Washington and New Jersey: Tell Sister State, Jeollabuk-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.

Jeollabuk-do Province of South Korea became a sister state with Washington in 1996 and New Jersey in 2000, despite the fact that Jeollabuk-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 which supports the illegal mass breeding and brutal slaughter of dogs for human consumption is Jeollabuk-do.

Have you ever wondered what Hell is like? Click HERE to watch undercover videos from a dog slaughterhouse in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do. There are no words to describe the daily horror of this “Hell On Earth.” There are so many dog slaughterhouses, farms and meat markets like these all around Jeollabuk-do.

Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Jeollabuk-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. Jeonju, Gunsan, Iksan, Jeongeop, Namwon, Gimjae, Wanju, Jinan, Muju, Jangsu, Imsil, Soonchang, Gochang, Buan; and on goes the list of cities in Jeollabuk-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.

    All animal abuse, torture and killing needs to stop

      You are all so right about the need for the humane treatment of animals! Please boycott all S. Korean products, including Hyundai, KIA, LG, Samsung, Daewoo and others. As responsible consumers, we can make a huge difference by carefully buying only products that do not support animal cruelty! We should all write letters to the Int’l. Olympic Committee urging them to find another venue for these games in 2018. Golf tournaments and other agreements with S. Korea need to change venues as well! If we do not support this barbaric country’s cruel treatment of animals, it is possible that the govt. may make some much-needed, positive changes for animals.

      Thanks for all your support!
