Sister City Campaign – Daegu, South Korea – Taipei, Taiwan

Taipei Mayor Wen-je Ko: Tell your Sister City, Daegu, South Korea, that you are 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.

Daegu became a Sister City with Taipei, Taiwan, in 2010.

In Daegu, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry and are subject to the same cruelty.

Dog Butchers of Daegu, South Korea

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Daegu’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – one was for so-called “Health 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” – resulted in hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Daegu.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Daegu to supply all of these outlets.

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

    Estas prácticas son de una barbarie sin nombre que muestra una ausencia total de moralidad y de alma ! Sois máquinas sin sentimientos, y la sociedad actual condena vuestra crueldad y falta de escrúpulos. Un solo animal de estas “infernales granjas” vale más que todos vosotros juntos. ASESINOS!!!!!!
