③ Petition suggested message:
Request to shut down dog slaughterhouse located in Hakgok-ri, Dongnae-myeon, Chuncheon, Gangwon-do
Dogs are being illegally killed in a large slaughterhouse located in Hakgok-ri, Dongnae-myeon, Chuncheon. For many years, operating in violation of the Animal Protection Act and the Building Act, this slaughterhouse has been butchering dogs by sticking electric iron skewers into the dog’s anus. We request that the City of Chuncheon immediately and permanently shut down this illegal dog slaughterhouse in Hakgok-ri and establish plans to inspect and shut down all illegal dog slaughterhouses in Chucheon.

It was like an impregnable fortress. Despite the countless civil complaints filed at the local government against the daily sounds of screaming dogs and the nauseating stench, brutal slaughter continued.

We, the Korean Animal Welfare Association (KAWA), received a tip about early morning dog slaughtering taking place daily. At this slaughterhouse the dogs were mainly being killed by the extremely painful method of sticking electric iron skewers in the animal’s anus. Despite the fact that last April, the Supreme Court had found guilty in a case of killing dogs by electrocution, the brutal electrocution of dogs is still prevalent throughout the country.

Activists staked out the site for several weeks and finally, at dawn on the 21st, ambushed the slaughterhouse and immediately reported them to the local police. The slaughterhouse is designated as a goat slaughterhouse, but over the years, countless dogs have been illegally slaughtered. Because the police responded to our call, we were able to prevent further dog slaughtering that day, but if the slaughterhouse continues to operate, the terrible killing of dogs will continue.

They must be stopped immediately. Please, everyone, submit a complaint (e-People petition) to the City of Chuncheon today! For years, no one has been able to prevent the large-scale killing at this dog slaughterhouse in Chuncheon. But we must stop them, now! KAWA is planning to file a complaint with the city of Chuncheon to suspend the operation of this dog slaughterhouse. We will not give up on this case until there are no more innocent dogs being sacrificed. We will communicate the progress of this case through our homepage and social media. Stay tuned!

③ 민원예시
제목: 강원도 춘천시 동내면 학곡리 개 도살장 운영 중단 요청
내용: 동내면 학곡리에 위치한 대규모 도축장에서 불법 개 도살이 자행되고 있습니다. 해당 도축장은 수년 간 전기 쇠꼬챙이를 이용해 수시로 개 도살 행위를 행하고 있으며, 동물보호법, 건축법 등을 위반하여 개 도축장을 운영하고 있습니다. 춘천시는 △동내면 학곡리 개 도살장의 불법 도살 완전 근절 △춘천시 불법 개 도살장 모니터링 및 현장점검 계획을 수립해주시기 바랍니다.

마치 철옹성과 같았습니다. 매일 개들의 비명 소리와 역한 냄새에 관할 지자체로 수차례 민원이 접수되었으나 잔혹한 도살은 멈추지 않고 계속됐습니다.
동물자유연대를 통해 한 통의 제보가 접수됐습니다. 매일 새벽 개 도살이 이루어지고 있다는 내용이었습니다. 주로 개들의 항문에 전기 쇠꼬챙이를 넣어 죽이는 고통스러운 방법으로 도살은 이루어지고 있었습니다. 이미 지난 4월, 대법원은 전기 쇠꼬챙이를 사용한 개 전기도살 사건에 유죄 판결을 내린 바 있음에도 불구하고 전국 곳곳 암암리에 잔인한 개 전기도살은 여전히 횡행하고 있습니다.
활동가들은 몇 주간 현장 일대 잠복을 이어갔으며, 드디어 21일 새벽 도살장을 급습하고 관할 경찰서에 즉시 신고를 진행했습니다. 해당 도살장은 염소 도축장으로 지정되어 있는 곳이나, 지난 세월 셀 수 없이 수많은 개들에 대한 불법 도살을 일삼아왔습니다. 경찰 신고로 당일 추가적인 개 도살은 막았으나, 해당 도살장의 영업이 지속된다면 끔찍한 개 도살은 계속될 것입니다.
이제는 막아야 합니다. 여러분, 지금 바로 춘천시청에 민원을 넣어주세요 수 년간 누구도 막지 못한 대규모 춘천 개 도살장, 이제는 우리가 막아야 합니다! 동물자유연대는 춘천 개 도살장의 영업 중단을 위한 고발장을 접수할 예정입니다. 아무 죄 없는 백구와 누렁이들이 더이상 희생되지 않도록, 끝까지 포기하지 않고 사건을 대응하겠습니다. 추후 상황은 동물자유연대 홈페이지와 SNS를 통해 전하겠습니다. 기다려주세요!

    It breaks my heart to see these poor helpless animals. Dogs have been mankind’s friends, guards and helpers for thousands of years. They have developed together with human beings, they are our companions. They should be treasured and treated humanely.

    I have sent the email to the various council members. Some have blocked my message so they are obviously receiving a lot of mail from the likes of us. Good. This unspeakable cruelty HAS to stop. Don’t they realise how badly it reflects on Korea?

      Guys, it’s useless to write “stop it!” HERE, in the comments on this page. Korean authorities don’t read it, and those who do – they are animal advocates like you. Better email the government or file an e-people complaint, or call them, or call to the embassy if you don’t speak Korean.
      Please remember that this site is run by Koreans who want to save the dogs.

    This is a horrendous treatment of living creatures and it must stop. The cruel mentality of these people is beyond evil thinking as it is far worse. These are weak-minded people dealing with intelligent living creatures with much more feelings than they have. Unfortunately, the feel pain and suffering and have all the emotions of us humans so they suffer as we do. Therefore these cruel heartless individuals need to be imprisoned and receive the similar treatment they are lashing out.
