    The dog farm specified above is suspected to be an unregistered facility and has been contributing to pollution of the environment and thus requires urgent administrative measures and immediate shutdown.

    1. Under the current enforcement decree of the Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta, any dog farm at least 60 square meters in size is subject to registration as a waste emission facility. Any illegal dog farms operating without proper registration must be ordered to suspend operation and close under Articles 17 and 18 of the Act. Administrative actions such as imposing fines must be issued according to Article 50 and the enforcement decree Article 20 of the same law.

    2. Illegal dog slaughter may violate Article 8 of the Animal Protection Act. If a dog farm has committed an illegal dog slaughter, they will be sentenced to less than two years in prison and fined up to 20 million won. Please inspect the dog farm site to check if illegal dog slaughter is committed and report it to the police.

    3. According to Articles 25 and 46 of the Waste Control Act, food waste feed recycling requires that dog farms be equipped with appropriate facilities. It must be registered and authorized by the municipal government. Please inspect the dog farm to check if the food waste is being fed to dogs and take appropriate administrative actions under Article 66 for violations.

    4. In the case of temporary buildings: Dog farms must obtain approval according to the Building Act Article 14 (Building Reports) and Article 20 (Temporary Buildings). Please remove the building if the building is unauthorized.

    5. If sewage contamination is found: Personal sewage treatment facilities must be reported under Article 34, Paragraph 2 of the Sewerage Act. After inspecting the discharge of manure and wastewater into the public water, please take administrative measures under Article 77 of the Sewerage Act.

    6. If household waste is found, unlawful dumping and loading of household waste violate Article 13 of the Waste Control Act. After investigating the accumulation of household waste in the vicinity, please take measures under Article 66-1 of the Waste Control Act.

    Unauthorized processing of food waste fed to dogs in the meat trade violates the Wastes Control Act, Article 15-2, Article 25, Section 3. Suppliers of food waste and transporters of food waste to dog meat farms are violating this regulation.

    Food waste fed to dogs in the dog meat trade violates the Control of Livestock and Fish Feed Act, Article 14, Section 1 & 2. The unauthorized collection of food waste and the act of feeding it to dogs in the meat trade violates this regulation.

    Excrement and resulting environmental damage produced as a by-product of the illegal dog meat farm violate the Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta Article 11. The excrement produced at dog meat farms causes environmental damage to the immediate and surrounding area.

    The act of slaughtering dogs for human consumption violates the Animal Protection Act Article 8, Section 1, Clause 4. The act of slaughtering a dog without a justifiable ground – such as out of necessity for veterinary treatment or in circumstances of immediate threat, harm, or damage to human life or property- is a violation.

    The slaughter of dogs by electrocution violates the Animal Protection Act, Article 8, Section 1, Clause 1. Inflicting injury or death to any animal by the following means: battery by tools, exposure to drugs, exposure to extreme heat or fire, electrocution, and drowning is subject to legal punishment. Therefore, the routine slaughter of dogs by butchers and farmers by these methods violates the Act. Further, electrocution as a method of slaughter is internationally recognized as an inherently cruel method of slaughter and banned globally.

    The slaughter of dogs from an unauthorized slaughterhouse violates the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, Article 7 Section 1. The Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act states that dogs are officially recognized and classified as “animals” that are “prohibited from being slaughtered and distributed as food for human consumption.” Therefore, vendors operating dog slaughterhouses are operating outside of the parameters of the law.

    The slaughter of dogs for their own consumption violates the Animal Protection Act, Article 10. The Act intends to ensure that no animal is slaughtered in a cruel or revolting manner and shall be free from unnecessary pain, fear, or stress during the process of slaughter. Therefore, the only humane way of slaughtering dogs would be by euthanasia (lethal injection). All currently practiced slaughter methods by butchers, farmers, and traders exclude euthanasia as a method of slaughter. Therefore, they are all in breach of this Act. This is also a violation of the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act Article 7 Section 1 Clause 2. According to the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, the slaughter of animals for their own consumption is allowed only for the livestock animals that are publicly announced as classification of livestock in the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act and dogs are not classified here.

    The display and sale of dog carcasses in traditional outdoor markets violate the Food Sanitation Act, Article 4, 5. Violation of laws banning the sale of harmful food due to the contamination from the unsanitary and illegal slaughter of the animal and display of the dog carcass. For example, dog carcasses are routinely contaminated by microorganisms that cause human diseases and food poisoning, leading to severe and life-threatening health complications. There are also strict laws that ban the sale of meat from sick animals. Because there is no quality control or proper monitoring of slaughter practices in the dog meat trade, likely, these laws are routinely violated.

    Dog meat restaurants’ sale of dog meat soup made with dog carcasses from an unknown source violates the Food Sanitation Act Article 44 Section 1 Clause 1. Uninspected livestock products must not be transported, stored, displayed, sold, or used to manufacture or process food for human consumption.

    Our worldwide campaign urging your city to shut down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses is in progress. https://koreandogs.org/yongin-dog-farms/

    We urge you to take quick and strong administrative measures to address the violation of laws and shut down all these illegal dog farms and dog slaughterhouses immediately!

    위 개농장은 가축분뇨법상 미신고된 불법 개농장이며 여러 불법성이 보이는 바, 이에 대한 확인, 행정처분 및 즉각적인 폐쇄를 강력히 촉구합니다.

    1) 가축분뇨의 관리 및 이용에 관한 법률 시행령 상 60㎡ 이상 개농장은 배출시설 신고대상에 해당합니다. 신고되지 않고 운영되는 불법 개농장의 경우 가축분뇨 관리법 제17조 및 제18조에 따라 사용중지 및 폐쇄명령, 동법 제50조 및 시행령 제20조에 따라 과태료 부과 등 행정처분이 내려져야 할 것입니다.

    2) 불법 개도살이 이루어질 경우 동물보호법 제8조 위반 가능성이 있습니다. 해당 개농장이 불법 개도살을 할 경우 2년 이하 징역, 2천만원이하 벌금에 처해집니다. 불법 개도살이 이루어지는지 현장 확인 후 경찰에 고발조치 해주시기 바랍니다.

    3) 폐기물 관리법 제25조 및 제46조에 따르면 음식물류 폐기물 사료 재활용은 적정 시설 장비를 갖추고 지자체 인허가를 받거나 신고하도록 되어 있습니다. 음식물류 폐기물을 개들에게 급여하는지 확인해 주시고, 위반 시 제66조 조항에 따라 행정조치 바랍니다.

    4) 가설 건축물일 경우 : 건축법 제 14조(건축신고) 및 제 20조(가설건축물) 허가 후 견사를 지어야 합니다. 무단 증축된 건축물일 경우 철거 조치 바랍니다.

    5) 하수도 오염 사항이 발견될 경우 : 하수도법 제 34조 2항에 따라 개인 하수처리시설 신고가 필요합니다. 공공수역 분뇨, 폐수 배출 상태 확인 후 하수도법 제 77조에 따라 행정조치 바랍니다.

    6) 생활 폐기물이 발견될 경우: 생활 폐기물 불법 투기 및 적재는 폐기물 관리법 제13조 위반입니다. 주변에 생활 폐기물을 쌓아두고 방치하는 행위 조사 후 폐기물 관리법 제66조 제1호에 따라 조치해 주시기 바랍니다.

    – 개의 사육단계에서 식용견 사료용으로 음식쓰레기를 무단처리하는 것은 폐기물 관리법 제 15조의 2, 제 25조 3항 위반입니다. 음식물쓰레기 배출자와 운반자들은 이 의무규정을 위반하고 개농장주에게 음식쓰레기를 제공하고 있습니다.

    – 허가 없이 음식쓰레기를 수집/운반하여 개에게 급여하는것은 사료관리법 제 14조 1항 및 2항의 위반입니다.

    – 불법으로 난립된 개농장에서 배출되는 분뇨로 인한 환경위해는가축분뇨법 제 11조의 위반입니다. 개농장의 배설물은 인근 지역 환경 피해를 유발합니다.

    – 식용하기 위한 개도살은 동물보호법 제 8조 1항 4호의 위반입니다. 개도살은 수의학적 처치의 필요나 동물로 인한 사람의 생명, 신체, 재산의 피해를 입은 경우 같은 정당한 사유 없이 동물을 죽이는 행위로 명백한 법 위반 행위입니다.

    – 전기감전으로 개를 도살하는 행위는 동물보호법 제 8조 1항 1호의 위반입니다. 도구, 약물 또는 열, 전기, 물을 이용한 상해 행위마저 법적 처벌의 대상인 만큼 당연히 상기 방법에 의한 도살 행위는 위법이며 특히 전기도살은 그 잔인함으로 인해 국제적으로 금지되고 있습니다.

    – 무허가 도살장에서 개를 도살하는 행위는 축산물 위생관리법 제 7조 1항 위반입니다. 개는 축산물 위생관리법에서 규정한 ‘도살, 식육으로의 유통이 불가능’한 동물로서 허가받은 도살장이 존재할수가 없습니다. 따라서 개 도살장을 운영하는 공급업체는 법의 매개 변수를 벗어나 법을 위반하고 있는 것입니다.

    – 자가소비를 목적으로 개를 도살하는 행위는 동물보호법 제 10조와 축산물 위생관리법 제 7조 1항 2호의 위반입니다. 모든 동물은 잔인한 방법으로 도살되어서는 안되는데, 개도살의 경우 인도적인 방법은 약물주사 외에는 없으므로 현재 한국에서 자행되는 모든 식용 목적 개도살은 잔인한 도살에 해당합니다. 축산물 위생관리법의 ‘자가소비를 위한 도살 허용’은 고시로 정한 축산물 위생관리법상 가축에 한하며 개는 해당사항이 없습니다.

    – 재래시장에서 개의 지육을 전시/판매하는 행위는 식품위생법 제4, 5조의 위반입니다. 불결한 불법도축과 지육 전시과정에서의 오염으로 ‘위해식품 등의 판매금지’ 조항에 위배됩니다. 개의 지육이 병을 일으키는 미생물에 오염된 경우 인체의 건강을 해칠 우려가 있습니다. 또 유기견이나 개농장의 병든 개체가 도살돼 판매될 가능성을 배제하지 못하므로 ‘병든 동물의 고기 등의 판매금지’ 조항에 위배됩니다.

    – 보신탕집에서 출처 불명의 개고기를 이용한 보신탕을 판매하는 행위는 식품위생법 제44, 1항 1호의 위반입니다. 검사를 받지 않은 축산물은 운반, 보관, 진열, 판매하거나 식품의 제조, 가공에 사용해서는 안됩니다.

    용인시의 불법 개농장과 도살장 폐쇄 청원 캠페인을 전세계적으로 진행하고 있습니다. https://koreandogs.org/yongin-dog-farms/

    불법 사항 해결에 대한 적극적인 처리와 재발 방지를 위한 신속하고 강력한 행정처분, 및 즉각적인 폐쇄를 강력히 촉구합니다.

    Really humans are barbaric. Animals are far better beings than humans. How sick, ruthless, evil deeds you subject these poor animals to. Where are your hearts? Do you have hearts? I think not. This is not civilised. Karma will come to you that abuses and kills animals. Just a matter of time.
