Bucheon Mayor Kim is visiting Sister City Bakersfield – time to urge the ending of the dog meat cruelty

Bucheon Mayor Man-Soo Kim is visiting Sister City Bakersfield, California from Nov 2nd through 8th. Mayor Kim has already been proactive by taking some major steps to help strengthen the Animal Protection laws in Bucheon – but the illegal dog and cat-meat trades still exist in his city. And, so long as these trades are allowed to operate, the real benefit of ‘Animal Protection’ will be an unattainable dream and the animals will continue to suffer immensely.

Therefore, this visit will be a good opportunity to contact Mayor Kim to urge him to take affirmative action to bring a complete end to these illegal trades throughout Bucheon.

Suggested message to the Mayor and the City Council members of Bakersfield

Dear Mayor Harvey Hall and the members of the City Council of Bakersfield:

I would like to thank you for responding to our concerns raised via the recent petition on Change.org about the mistreatment, torture and consumption of companion animals in Bakersfield’s Sister City of Bucheon. We are informed that Bucheon Mayor Man-Soon Kim is visiting your city through Nov 8, and we ask that you please take this opportunity to urge Mayor Kim to confirm to you that he will be taking affirmative action to make his city the “first dog meat free city” in Korea, and to completely close down the illegal dog meat industry.

Both domestic and international pressure on this issue is required if we are going to incite some real change in South Korea, so I kindly urge you to continue reaching out to your Sister City until such action has been taken by Bucheon and an end has been brought to the illegal and horrific practice of the dog meat trade for good.

Thank you again for your efforts here.

    This is a NO-BRAINER — our animals NEED our intervention and protections — we must do what is right, rational, moral & compassionate — we MUST protect our dogs & cats from abuse, suffering and needless slaughter — SHUT DOWN ALL DOG/CAT MEAT FARMS in S. Korea.
