500 Dogs Dog farm_TV news

The great achievement of this year, is that I can now announce a victory of our big battle which had been on-going for the last four months.

While we had all the dogs in our hands from the 50 Dogs dog farm, we went back to the 500 Dogs meat dog farm. The dog farmer had committed suicide after my first visit on the 24th June. He hung himself while hiding in the mountains. Before that, his truck struck another truck which had caused serious injury to four people. This was quite sensational, and had aired on the 9th July by MBC, “Real Story” which included an interview with me.

I am announcing a victory although there is another long story behind with my visit yesterday. Because of the death of the dog farmer two months ago, the dog farm had completely ended the dog meat business. I saw with my own eyes, that not a single dog was there, and had not heard the usual barking of dogs. We confirmed “not a single dog” again later at the police station. It was in early August that we learned that 300 dogs were sold, left with 200 dogs which he was asking for $6 per kg wholesale price from the Moran dog meat market. We couldn’t save a dog from this dog farm but the business had eventually shut down, and all three charges I had filed against the dog farm were nullified after his funeral.

The family is still blaming me for the death, especially the elder brother. He became violent, beating me so I had to protect myself by using my teeth. Nearby policemen came, and I ended up at the police station on a charge of injuring the brother, and violation of domicile by trespassing. I was beaten as well, but the police would not hear me saying that I didn’t have any evidence of wounds, while he had a large teeth bite mark on his right hand. It is likely I am losing this case as the police and the brother know each other, as they are neighbors. The chances are high the family will bribe the police. I need a lawyer for this. The dog meat supply business is always transacted with cash, with no records at all, but we are digging through their tax records with the livestock farming license. I am charging the family for tax evasion. This is the least I can do now.

This is one more case to the two on-going court cases. Fighting the dog meat trade in Korea is tough and can be highly dangerous. That’s why few people want to get involved in this battle. Although I am working almost twenty hours a day to end the dog meat trade, I don’t see an end to this.

    Hello Nami…

    My name is Jan.

    I cannot give financially at this time, but what I am doing is praying for Divine Intervention, for you and the other dear, kind souls, that are on the front lines fighting evil, for Gods creatures! You and others like you are awesome warriors for animals! Please do not give up what you are doing! Cruelty as you know is evil! The best way for evil to prevail, is for good people to do nothing!

    All over the world, especially the very young and apparently to the very old, must be taught and mentored…kindness and compassion, especially towards innocent beings, whether humans, or animals! That humans are to be responsible, loving stewards of this earth and it’s creatures!
    It is quite apparent this is not the norm in societies/ families, so we advocates/ activists, that are fighting for the welfare of innocent, living beings… must petition the education systems in our individual countries and be able to get it taught in school!

    Take great care and may God be with you!!!
