Subject: To the Supreme Prosecutors’s Office: Prosecute and punish the animal abuser who struck and burned dogs alive and caused unthinkable terror and agony!
To the Supreme Prosecutors’s Office,
Please watch this video: https://youtu.be/KMGV_y_surM
This TV program reported about two dogs who suffered unimaginable pain and agony when struck and burned while still alive. The animal abuser who burned these dogs alive clearly violated many clauses of the Animal Protection Act and is guilty of an egregious case of animal cruelty that must be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Also, please prosecute the dog farmer who illegally operated dog farm and committed animal cruelty for the violation of animal protection act.

00:03 Rescuer1 : I can smell something burnt.. or burning..
00:05 Rescuer2 : Hell no..
00:06 Vet : Scorched a lot..
00:08 One urgently brought to the hospital was in critical condition, smelled of something heavily scorched..
00:13 Nurse 1 : It was shocking as I could smell scorched, burnt, and by the fact that he didn’t react to anything..
00:22 Nurse 2 : Was horrible, even just to look at.. Felt sorry to even touch her
00:27 Vet : Since we could smell the burnt flavor even from the distance, We could immediately notice that the trauma comes from fire or a torch…
00:35 Yet, there was more to it
00:38 Vet : At the skull, there are signs of fracture caused by a blunt weapon identified,
00:44 in which we could quickly speculate that it was all a person’s doing.
00:48 Considering the injuries left on Yumi, it’s highly possible that a man could have done such things on purpose
00:54 A week’s passed..
00:55 After several adversities, she was able to get the surgery
00:59 What kind of devil’s doing could have left serious burns from head to toe?
01:07 Vet : The face, neck, half of her back, and the entire abdomen.
01:13 About 40 to 50% of her body was covered with third-degree burns, and the size of it is quite big
01:22 If there wasn’t an emergency rescue carried out, she might have left this world, I presume..
01:29 Yumi’s condition is severe enough to see her being alive as a miracle
01:33 As if even just breathing brings her pain, Yumi cries out desperately..
01:35 She’s in the worst condition to even make a person feels painful to just watch
01:39 Can’t imagine how much pain Yumi’s now feeling..
01:44 To bring light to the truth of what’s happened on that day, We’ve decided to investigate the wounds left on Yumi as the clues
01:47 Fire inspector/ Huge injuries are concentrated on the front, gets lesser as it goes towards the back..
01:53 There’s none here
01:55 It looks like a huge flame swept in a short moment, just once
02:04 All the burns are focused on the front of her body
02:09 Fire inspector/ There are some particular torches used by butchers or on the construction sites
02:15 Torch for butchering
02:17 Fire Inspector/ By a usual torch used in homes, it wouldn’t leave such wounds, I think.
02:22 Most likely through utilizing a torch, connected to an LPG gas barrel, the flame could be able to cover the entire body of the dog
02:32 We’ve checked whether this would leave similar marks as Yumi’s
02:41 Fire inspector : If a fire has a certain direction, it leaves this kind of shape
02:45 Surprisingly the burnt made on this exactly resembles Yumi’s as well
02:49 Fire inspector : In our term, that’s called ‘fire shade’.
02:51 After the flame brushes, where it can hide from the flames, leave as fine as this
02:58 If a fire shade’s been made, that means the intense level of flame went past at a certain angle, at a fast rate
03:02 Most say such method’s commonly used for butchering
03:08 Perhaps, Yumi has escaped from such process..
03:10 We’ve revisited the town where Yumi was found to ask around
03:14 Resident : Guess they missed it, while they’re going to eat them.
03:19 Probably thought she passed out while burning her alive.
03:22 Resident : This place is famous for eating dogs.
03:25 Nobody looks for their dogs when the actually lose them
03:28 Yet, while we were asking around..
03:31 We were able to meet a lady who claims that her dog as well got into a terrible accident recently
03:35 Jindol’s owner : Couldn’t find him from the last Tuesday, like the entire day. Never been like that before.
03:39 Never been like that before.
03:40 The only thing I hoped was to actually find him…
03:43 So we’ve looked across there, took around the neighborhood..
03:46 But we couldn’t still find him.
03:47 The lady was looking for everywhere to find Jindol, but she failed to do so
03:52 And a phone call came in
03:54 Jindol’s owner : Said Jindol got into a car accident.. Collapsed and bleeding..
03:57 And I panicked so badly.. Couldn’t even recognize Jindol, as his face was so swollen..
04:03 I might want to deny the fact, but I kept on denying that it was Jindol
04:08 My husband, stood by me, said, “I think, it’s Jindol..” So then I held him, and turns out it was Jindol
04:12 Jindol found in a horrible shape..
04:16 Was wounded badly on his head, and the body was blacked by some burns
04:23 The hospital CCTV footage shows exactly how urgent the scene was at that time
04:33 Vet : On the tail, the back and the hind leg.. they were all burned by something, and smelt badly of such
04:40 And most of the trauma is concentrated on the head..
04:44 The bones supposedly to have some sort of continuity.. but
04:48 As you can see here, there are parts where it’s broken
04:51 PD : Ah.. it’s just broken?
04:53 Vet : Yes..
04:54 Vet : Even the right forelead, there was a deep cut in which even the bones are protruded
05:02 Even the teeth are all broken
05:06 Vet : Since some of the burns are so overlapped,
05:09 Fights between the animals, a car accident, or hurt from the fall, they all sound so unlikely to diagnose in his case
05:17 It nearly seems like it’s been done for the purpose of killing
05:21 It’s highly possible that someone could have done such horrible things on Jindol as well…
05:24 Jindol’s owner : Wanna go home~? Alright.. Okay..
05:26 Don’t.. Don’t stand
05:28 Uh?! Gosh, lord..
05:32 She feels painful to simply watch Jindol came back home, covered in wounds overnight..
05:39 These two cases, looking alike by looking at the fractures on the head and the blackened burns.
05:43 Both cases even happened within the same town
05:47 Yumi found (2019.12.13)
05:48 Jindol found (2019.12.15)
05:51 Wouldn’t the assaulter of both cases might be the same..?
05:54 Resident : I came out, and saw him from here to there…
05:59 Luckily we were able to spot CCTVs surrounding the place, so we could navigate the route that Jindol took
06:05 A route in which Jindol walked back after being attacked by someone
06:08 Suspects that Jindol came along the street connected all the way from the deep inside the town
06:11 Jindol’s owner : He’s attacked from that side or somewhere this side and walked down along this way
06:14 It rained the next day, so I wasn’t able to find any traces of his blood drops or some hair left
06:23 Wasn’t able to check as it poured a lot..
06:26 There were no longer a trace or evidence found..
06:29 Wouldn’t there be more traces left where Yumi was found?
06:33 Thankfully, the CCTV footage of that day was kept safely
06:37 Yumi rushing hurriedly, soaked in blood, as if she’s being chased by something
06:43 First reporter : Came in like this and crouched in the corner there..
06:47 At that time, she was drenched in fear, crouching in the corner to hide herself away
06:52 We’ve decided to study other CCTVs located on the same path where Yumi rushed from
06:57 Yumi, running hurriedly towards the factory
07:08 Resident : Came down from this path
07:16 The path in which we suspect that Yumi’s come from
07:21 PD : Can hear dogs barking..!
07:23 And there are dogs..!
07:26 Is somebody raising them all here..?
07:28 PD : Excuse me?
07:32 Shockingly, hundreds of dogs were locked up in confined, puppy mills, deep inside the farmhouse..
07:39 They are raised in terrible condition, even at a glance..
07:42 As we walked past the yard and went inside the house..
07:44 As expected, it was filled with puppy mills with dogs as well..
07:50 PD : Went so skinny..
07:55 Moreover.. there were mother dogs, breastfeeding with the scrawny body…
08:01 A horrifying scene, one couldn’t even watch with bare eyes
08:08 PD : Gosh.. I can’t..
08:10 To find out if there’s any connection between the owners of the farmhouse and Yumi, we’ve decided to wait up
08:13 When we were about to lose track of time..
08:25 A white truck drove in..
08:31 PD : Excuse me, sir?
08:34 PD : Hi, we are from a broadcasting station. Just want to know whether those dogs belong to you?
08:38 Fothermucker : I do, yes..
08:40 Why on earth is he keeping these dogs? For what?
08:43 Bit** : We used to supply in a market, but the supply line’s been cut. That’s why it’s all snowballed.
08:50 PD : You mean the route’s been banned?
08:51 Fothermucker/Bit** : Yeah Yeah, that could be the only reason why it ended up like this
08:54 Fothermucker : Ah, Can’t sell ’em. Someone needs to eat so we can sell~ But no one does these days
08:58 That’s why we’re keeping them.
08:59 PD : Then you should have sent them away or something
09:04 Fothermucker : How on earth would I know such things?
09:08 What they’re saying is, they’ve been seeing dogs as ‘food’..but
09:13 But the supply line’s been cut in which they can no longer sell them off. That’s why they’re keeping so many of them.
09:17 PD : You’ve never butcher them yourself?
09:18 Fothermucker : Nah~ Never. Why would I do such a thing, they’re like my own kids
09:25 PD : Would you raise your own kids in such condition?
09:28 Fothermucker : I do no lies. If you must say I butcher them here, would I’ve done it so unprofessionally?
09:39 We strike them with electricity so that they can’t run away
09:45 What he says is that he might have used something better to butcher him
09:50 Then that day..
09:50 Who was it who’s done such horrible things on Yumi..?
09:54 Animal welfare org : The purpose is quite clear, as they’re burned, it was to eat them..
10:00 But striking their heads like that, it ain’t easy for somebody who’s never done such a thing before to just strike dog’s head
10:06 And that leads us to the fact that, he’s experienced. But considering that he let the dog run away,
10:11 Not even checking whether the dog is alive or not.. all these things show the unprofessional side of him
10:18 That makes everything so ambiguous
10:23 Then, it might also mean Yumi and Jindol was cornered to become edible?
10:30 [The owner of a dog farm has been prosecuted for breaching animal protection laws since they’ve been utilizing electrical shocks on dogs]
10:35 [A dealer was caught for slaughtering dogs in the most horrifying way]
10:41 Electrocution used to butcher has been accepted as one way of breaching animal protection law.
10:45 Such precedent cases prove that social recognition towards killings or giving pains to the dogs has shifted.
10:51 Two days later, we revisited to the farmhouse..
10:54 The dogs are all gone
10:58 PD : Where are they gone to?
11:00 Fothermucker : Chungcheong-do
11:01 PD : Chungcheong-do? Were they moved to another dog farm then?
11:04 Fothermucker : Nah, it isn’t a slaughter house, but a shelter.
11:07 My friend introduced, so I have no idea whom they were sent to
11:12 Funny that he sent the dogs who he cares like his own children away to nobody
11:16 Bit** : Some came from the city hall
11:18 Fothermucker : F*** me
11:19 At the right moment, an official from the city hall came by the farmhouse
11:21 PD : Hi, we are from SBS. Do you have any idea where these dogs sent to?
11:26 Municipal officer : Can we talk in private?
11:29 The officer walks off to have a talk with the owner in private
11:31 PD : Can’t you tell me where they were moved to?
11:34 The officer : No comment
11:36 And he left without saying a word
11:39 Would a local government be aware of the dogs’ whereabouts?
11:42 The owner temporarily sent away those dogs, so we’re still looking for their whereabouts atm
11:46 For now, we are focusing to look for an attacker who abused the dogs
11:51 The only thing left for dog farm is to proceed with the administrative procedure, that’s all I can say
11:57 Where have all those dogs gone to?
12:00 Though they were able to leave the cramped puppy mills,
12:03 It’s still worrying to imagine that they might have faced the worse reality somewhere outside
12:07 Animal Farm and Animal Welfare Org has requested for police involvement, upon the grounds of their coverage
12:11 Police : Yes, we have assigned two special forces suited to Jindol and Yumi’s cases
12:16 And we’re currently investigating the CCTVs and the actual crime scenes
12:21 We’re yet to specify the suspect, but trying our best to do so…
12:27 What we can only rely on is, the reports from any witnesses
12:31 Hope the attacker of this horrific incident come to the light..
12:34 After a few days, we dropped by the hospital where Yumi kept
12:38 Yumi’s temporary guardian : Yumi~ let’s eat
12:41 Makes us all thankful by the fact that she’s holding the ray of light, bearing all the pain
12:46 We can’t even imagine
12:51 The guardian : She’ll take trauma treatments from now on,
12:54 and we won’t be looking for adoption over a year or more from now.
13:01 Jindol’s trying his best to come back to his life as well..
13:06 I think, the weight of life is equal to us all. Hope no one underestimates their life ever again..
13:14 Yumi and Jindol came back alive from the verge of death..
13:19 But, their pain is yet to end..Wouldn’t there be neither another Yumi nor Jindol..?
13:25 If we are aware that they are ‘beings’ who feel what we feel, Wouldn’t there be no more of another Yumi or Jindol..?
13:36 Yumi’s recovery after a year will be out next week…! Stay tuned with Kritter Klub!
