Call for Action: Punish the murderer who dragged a dog to her death with a Hyundai Galloper in Sangju, South Korea

Following the case of a van deliberately running over a family of stray dogs, there has been another incident of vehicular cruelty to dogs. A dog was tied to the back of a vehicle driving nearly 80 km per hour (50 mph). She perished with her four paws decimated by the dragging and drenched in blood. The Korean Animal Welfare Association (KAWA) will not allow that final image of such heinousness to be forgotten and has launched a petition so that this murderer will not go unpunished. Please take a moment to join KAWA in this effort.

Translation of KAWA’s Petition

Please sign the petition urging prosecution for the person who dragged a dog to her death in Sangju, Gyeongsangbuk-do Province, South Korea.

Amid the pain and anger that resulted when a van deliberately drove over a family of stray dogs, devastating animal cruelty case using a vehicle occurred once again, this time in Sangju, Gyeongsangbuk-do.

On March 7, 2021, a driver witnessed a Hyundai Galloper driving nearly 80 km/h with a dog with a rope around her neck being dragged behind. She ran as fast as she could to keep up but she didn’t stand a chance. With the vehicle momentarily stopped, the witness closely observed the dog and found her four paws shredded, soaked in blood. She appeared motionless and was likely dead.

This is an obvious and egregious case of animal cruelty that must be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Let us not let the horrendous death of this defenseless dog be in vain. Please stand with the Korean Animal Welfare Association by signing the petition calling on the Sangju Police and the Prosecution Service Daegu District, Sangju Branch to launch a full investigation and hold this evildoer accountable.

KAWA’s Petition in Korean

‘경북 상주 차량에 개를 묶어 끌고 다니다 죽게 한 학대 사건’ 엄중처벌 탄원 서명
“시속 60~80km 되는 차량에 이끌려 살기 위해 달렸지만 결국 피투성이가 된 네 발로 죽음을 맞이한 빨간 발의 개”

승합차 유기견 학대 사건의 아픔과 분노가 여전한 가운데 차량을 이용한 참혹한 동물 학대 사건이 경북 상주에서 연이어 발생했습니다.

지난 7일, 갤로퍼 차량이 개의 목에 끈을 묶어 뒤편에 매단 채 시속 60~80킬로로 달리는 모습을 목격하여 해당 차량의 뒤를 쫓았고, 학대 차량이 지나간 길에는 피가 흥건한 것을 목격했다고 합니다. 차량이 잠시 정차한 틈을 타 자세히 확인해보니 개는 네 발이 모두 뭉개져 보랏빛피투성이가 되어 있었으며 차량에 끌려다녔던 개는 당시 이미 죽은 것인지 미동조차 없는 처참한 상태였습니다.

차량 블랙박스 영상 속 개의 몸통에는 특별히 외상이 없었으나 네 다리는 피투성이가 되어 있었습니다. 이는 학대자가 살아 있는 개를 차에 묶어 달렸고, 목이 묶인 개는 차량 속도를 따라잡으려 죽을힘을 다해 달리다가 결국 사망한 것으로 추정됩니다. 이것은 ‘노상에서 잔인한 방식으로 동물을 죽음에 이르게 한 명백한 동물학대 사건’입니다.

시민 여러분, 차량 운전자 즉 학대자는 생명의 존엄성에 대한 인식이 전혀 존재하지 않았습니다. 과연 자신의 소중한 개라면 이렇게까지 할 수 있었을까요? 개의 상태를 단 한 번이라도 확인해 봤다면 이런 안타깝게 죽음에 이르게 하지도 않았을 것입니다. 자유롭게 뛰어놀아야 할 개는 억지로 목이 묶여 살기 위해 뛰었습니다. 빨간 발의 개는 숨이 찰 때까지 뛰고 또 뛰었지만, 마음처럼 따라주지 않는 피로 흥건한 발이 원망스러웠을 겁니다. 빨간 발이 된 개의 죽음이 헛되지 않도록 여러분들께서 동물자유연대와 함께 목소리를 높여주시고, 학대자가 저지른 죄에 대한 응당한 대가를 치를 수 있도록 탄원 서명에 함께 동참해주시길 간곡히 부탁드립니다.

이 서명은 사건 수사를 담당할 상주경찰서 및 대구지검 상주지청에 철저한 수사와 엄중처벌을 촉구하기 위해 제출할 예정입니다.

    The dog and cat meat trade is a moral obscenity of the first order. The nations, mainly Asian, who condone this torture to such loving and trusting companion animals such as dogs, and cats, have absolutely nothing to be proud of if they crow endlessly about their materialistic progress and glorious civilizations. The empty rationalizations used to justify such depravity of a ‘business’ are just fallacious sophistic nonsense. Until animal welfare laws and legislated and enforced in said countries, and the populations are educated to understand what an obscenity this is, such nations are empty vessels of indifference and corrupt behaviour. To accept torture of nonhuman life as a norm, and not object to it, reveals systemic evil, mainly from the authorities who claim to govern the citizens under their control and who are unprepared to listen to their own activists wishing this horror to be banned. To be against torture — inflicted through malign cultural traditions — is not cultural imperialism. Those individuals who speak up to condemn the concept of cultural relativism are freely entitled to condemn torture to humans or nonhumans perpetrated in any nation on Earth. That torture is somehow acceptable within a culture, and outsiders should not interfere or criticize other cultures, is irrational nonsense. To pander to this concept is just an excuse to deny criticism of an evil. To do so exonerates the perpetrators of cruelty, the callous dog and cat meat traders who need retraining for more productive and humane occupations. Above all the acceptance of cruelty fails the nonhumans who cannot speak for themselves. More than ever, we need compassionate individuals with empathy to speak up for those beings denied a voice to live a happy life free from misery, torture, suffering and death. No more excuses for the corrupt horror of the Asian dog and cat meat trade! End it. Ban this sordid trade.
    End the South Korean dog meat trade before another pandemic hits the world!

    What a cruel human being. I shouldn’t even call him human trying up a dog to his pickup truck and driving 50 MPH dragging the poor thing down the freeway. He should be sentenced to torture. Do the same thing to him, please. Tie him up and drag him across the same road. What a psychopath Asian Countries are notorious for their cruelty towards animals, specifically dogs. He most certainly most be sentenced to death no justice for the human. Poor dog, RIP.

    This son of a bitch deserves the most excruciating and drawn out torture, then brought back to health, then repeat the long torture process! After repeating this cycle 5-6 times, remove all of his fingers, take his eyesight and hearing and seal his asshole shut so he cannot dedicate. Leave him in this state until near death again and finally tie his neck with a rope and drag his pathetic, worthless body until nothing remains but the rope. Then get out of vehicle and piss in the rope!

    Put this filthy lying heartless evil good for nothing monster in prison where he belongs. Hes gonna keep on murdering more animals if you dont. No human being should get away with hurting and murdering any animal. Hes a coward for trying to lie his way out of charges. Hes a piece of garbage and justice should be to put him in prison where he belongs. They make these laws against animal cruelty and then they dont punish or di anything. For the right thing and put these animal abusers including those who slaughter animals for meat in prison. The fact that the law doesn’t punish these evil doers is more sick and disgusting then the crime they committ. Makes me so sick.

    Eye for an eye! What anyone does to hurt another, human or animal, they get back. Bet they wouldn’t do it again! Needs to be a law! Wouldn’t be as much torturing going on if they knew they’d be getting the same back, the cowardly bully bastards! Guess they’re too weak to pick on someone their own size, that isn’t tied up, or without a weapon in their hand. How about someone chop THEIR arm off or skin THEM alive for the price of a meal?! They’ll meet their maker and for what they’ve done to loving innocent souls, they’re gonna beg for mercy til the end of eternity because they’re going to be feeling worse pain than they inflicted on others with NO END IN SIGHT

    Especially these countries in particular have it in for these animals to torture for meals or just to inflict harm on them in any way they feel like they can and it just doesn’t make any sense at all! that’s why eye for an eye needs to be a law ASAP!

    The punishment was not enough by miles! All animal abusers should be punished severely, their identities made public, their photos shown everywhere and they should never have the opportunity to be near any animal ever again. They should be made to pay for their heinous crimes.
