Case of dragging a white dog behind a motorcycle for 1 mile and 1,500yd reported by ‘TV Animal Farm’ … Punishment is 300,000 Korean Won ($300 USD)
This is a story aired on the ‘TV Animal Farm’ program in South Korea about a “dog raised for human consumption” called “meat dog” dragged behind a motorcycle to the slaughterhouse which was witnessed and recorded.
The full account of the ‘White dog motorcycle dragging animal cruelty case’ has been exposed.
After great efforts, the producer was able to find the driver and conduct an interview with him.
While the dog was being dragged to the slaughterhouse, witness was able to capture this tragedy on video. The dog was eventually killed at the slaughterhouse.
The perpetrator was an employee at a dispatch company (called “Quick Service” in South Korea) and he was delivering the dog from a dog farm to slaughterhouse for a $50 USD fee. When the producer questioned him, he said “I put the dog in the basket and I didn’t know that the dog fell out of the basket.” However, as the producer pointed out the images from the blackbox video, he made excuses, “I was very busy and I had to get the job done….the dog tried to bite me”.
The police forwarded this case to the prosecutor’s office to charge him for animal cruelty. However, the prosecutor indicted the man for only 300,000 Korean Won ($300 USD) stating that the “cruel act seems intentional but doesn’t seem to be habitual. The dog was treated cruelly but the dog was going to be slaughtered anyways for meat, the injury to the dog wasn’t serious…etc.” The final sentencing by the court still remains.
