PyeongChang, in South Korea, has appointed Honorary Ambassadors for their 2018 Winter Olympics; for example: Min-ho Lee (actor); Seung-hwan Jung (Ice Sledge Hockey Player), Sei-hon Cho (Celebrity Photographer), and Sue-jin Kang (Artistic Director of the Korean National Ballet), to name but a few.

They are all ‘bright stars’ in their own field, and now proud to be representing these Games as ambassadors.

Ms Kang, in her own words, states: “I will do my best to let the world know about the PyeongChang Winter Olympics and touch their hearts with Korean culture and colors.”

Please let these shining ambassadors know that the best way to touch the hearts of the world would be to immediately, and permanently, end the dog and cat meat trades. Click HERE to learn more about the Honorary Ambassadors.

Suggested message:

Honorary Ambassadors, please shine a beacon on these Olympic Games by working together to bring about the immediate end of the dog and cat meat trades in South Korea. This would be the best way to bring positive awareness of these games and the best and most honorable form of promotion for Korean culture.

Please sign and share the petitions!

      “Honorary” you say!!! In this situation, the BLOODY 2018 OLYMPICS in South Korea, the term “honorary” is too HIGH. The title HONORARY is gained or acquired; especially through MERIT or AS A RESULT OF EFFORT OR ACTION. The effort or action that SOUTH KOREAN AMBASSADORS could do to EARN this title is to force their country, SOUTH KOREA, to stop steeling, hitting, abusing and boiling cats and dogs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Then the term “honorary” would be appropriate.

      Dear John Burridge,

      How decent and honourable of you to say so. I fully support your sentiments. What is happening in this country is beyond barbaric…even Neanderthals and Cro-Magnon man didn’t behave in such demonic ways. Not only do they commit such unspeakable cruelty to cats and dogs, they also put Moon Bears (very cute, cuddly, small bears) in cages and cut off their entire paws one by one to serve them fresh for Bear Paw Soup! They just leave the bears in unspeakable agony like that in the cages until all four of their paws are cut off! I learnt of all these heinous, inhumane crimes years ago and couldn’t believe it. Theu are certainly the “Living dead” as told in Revelatiions/The Apocalypse in The Bible. Sathya Sai Baba calls such so-called people “Living Corpses” – same thing – zombies. They have lost their consciences, their humanity, and their hearts. They are no longer the children of God, which ALL Animals are as they are innocent and blameless, but these people are the children of the devil. The situation is intolerable. We must boycott everything Korean. Good on you for speaking out after having been a soldier.

    I am asking you as Honorary Ambassadors to the Olympic Games to do what you can to influence an end to the horrific dog and cat meat trades in South Korea. I believe you would be doing a lot to promote a positive image of both South Korean culture and the Olympic games to the rest of the world, if the dog and cat meat industries were ended for good.

    The pure horrific torture bright upon these innocent animals is herendous. They have being recognized as sentiment beings, meaning they have emotions and feelings. Your people are barbaric and savage in the treatment and killing of God’s creation. You know the true character of a person or country by the way they treat their animals. Pet’s are stolen causing great heartache for their owners. You blow touch, boil, cut off legs, hang, hook and anything else you can think of to cause a horrific death to these dogs. You have no concept of how indecent, cruel, vial and simple minded (stupid) you look to the world. You have not advanced into the 20th Century. I hope for all slaughter house owner to suffer the same intense pain you inflict on those dogs. I don’t want one US dollar to benefit that barbaric country and practice. They only way to make them change is not to ignore their inhumane practices, but to stop them from benefiting from tourist and athlete dollars that contribute to their economy. I hope they rot in the blood the have spilled. I hope I am alive to witness God’s wrath come down on all those who slaughter, encourage, buy, defend, provide the dogs and of course, government leaders who support this herendous practice…perish by God’s hand. These dog slaughter have no morale code and disgust the world.

I hope that you all suffer for your sins against Gods creatures. Cruelty, torture, suffering of these sentient beings is NOT acceptable to the world. The WORLD in all its glory is watching you.

    Min-ho Lee (actor); Seung-hwan Jung (Ice Sledge Hockey Player), Sei-hon Cho (Celebrity Photographer), and Sue-jin Kang (Artistic Director of the Korean National Ballet): Not only will these South Korean PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics “people” try to hide the dog meat restaurants from visitors, they will also hide the meat of live boiled dogs and cats with stirred rice in downtown restaurants in Gangwon Province & Gangneung… They will call this cruelty “international cuisine”.

    Too many times the world has ignored the revolting dog and cat meat trade and the appalling abuse of all animals. Not any more. With the Olympics being held in South Korea they should know that the world is watching to see whether this abominable cruelty will be stopped and if nothing is done they should hang their heads in shame. All animals have a right to life but these poor dogs and cats suffer appallingly. Humans domesticated these extremely intelligent, loving and loyal animals and humans in countries such as South Korea, China, Vietnam and others torture, abuse and slaughter them. It is completely immoral and needs to be stopped NOW.
