Daegu Chilseong Dog Meat Market, February 16, 2021. Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA).

Earlier this month, KARA went to the Chilseong traditional market in Daegu which is the only one among the three so-called major dog meat markets that is still in business.

Chilseong Market is a traditional market that represents Daegu just like Namdaemun Market in Seoul. Inside the heart of this Daegu tourist attraction, animal abuse is still taking place.

Chilseong Market together with the Moran Market in Seongnam and Gupo Market in Busan, are three of the most notorious so-called “dog meat markets” in the country. Seoul closed the last slaughterhouse in Gyeongdong Market in 2019. Once the largest in the country, the Moran Market in Seongnam banned slaughtering dogs in December 2016. Busan Gupo dog meat market has banned sale of dog meat and dog meat market was completely closed in July 2019.

(๐Ÿ“Œ Note by KoreanDogs.org: Please note that where KARA refers to there being no slaughterhouse this does not mean that there are no dogs being killed for human consumption or that there is no dog meat trade in that area. No slaughterhouse simply means that the slaughter is being done at some other property at another area. Also, just because a city claims that there are “no more dog slaughterhouses in their city” it does not mean that there are absolutely no slaughterhouses in their city. Korean cities do not monitor or regulate slaughterhouses for dogs, they actually do not know if there are no slaughterhouses in their cities, nor do they know how many slaughterhouses are operating in their city.)

Despite the social change taking place in South Korea to address illegal dog slaughter in recent years, Daegu Chilseong Market remains the only place in South Korea where dogs are both caged in the streets and slaughtered at the same place.

Under the Livestock Sanitation Management Act, dogs are not listed as โ€˜livestockโ€™, so the slaughter, distribution, and processing of dogs is out of scope of the Act and therefore illegal. Such illegal activities are being carried out in the middle of downtown Daegu.

KARA recently went on-site monitoring, and found that slaughter markets and boshintang (name of the โ€˜dog meat soupโ€™) restaurants were thriving in Chilseong Market despite the extremely cold weather.

KARA found, when entering an alleyway within the Market, several dogs trapped inside a wire cage. Some of the dogs were collared, which shows that once they had a human family.

Daegu must urgently take action against Chilseong Market. If they neglect to take action against the dog slaughter and animal abuse at Chilseong Market in the new year, then Daegu will forever be stigmatized by and associated with the notorious Chilseong Market. They will forever be stained with the blood of these innocent animals – it will never be able to be cleaned off.
We will not stop speaking up until the Chilseong Dog Meat Market is completely shut down.

    To do this to mans best friend is to BURN IN HELL FOR ETERNITY. Boycott all South Korean Corporations (Samsung, Hyundai/Kia, LG and others). Disgusting people.

    I avoid buying South Korean products as I cannot accept the cruelty to dogs as well as other animals. This is horrible, evil, this must stop and the people doing this must be punished. ๐Ÿ‘น

    This has to stop! SHAME ON THE GOVERNMENT for ignoring this SLAUGHTER. Korea (N. and S.) have submitted a bid to host the Olympics. A media blitz should be done to show the entire world the illegal dog meat markets and farms to SHAME their government into shutting them down! It needs to be brought into the homes of N. America, Europe, etc.

    Shameful abuse – when is torture of any living creature acceptable – the dog meat trade is doubly shameful – deliberate torture and many dogs are stolen pets.
