○ This is an answer to a complaint about pets (such as dogs).
○ Regarding the complaint that calls for a ban on the sale of dog meat distributed and sold by markets and bosintang handled by restaurants, dog meat does not fall within the scope of livestock under the current Livestock Products Hygiene Control Act and is not recognized as a raw material for food due to the lack of social consensus on the soundness of dog meat, but we have been eating dog meat for a long time due to our eating habits.
○ Therefore, the consumption of dog meat is a unique eating habit in Korea, and it requires a social consensus to prohibit the consumption of dog meat by law, so please understand this.
○ If you have any other questions, please contact Daejeon Seo-gu Office Hygiene Department (☏042-288-3342) and we will kindly guide you. Thank you.
