Incheon Seo-gu, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants.

Incheon Seo-gu Mayor Lee Jae-Hyeon

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

In Incheon Seo-gu District, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Incheon Seo-gu’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants”.

The searches resulted in: 66 Health Food Shops and 125 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Incheon Seo-gu.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Incheon Seo-gu to supply all of these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    S&S. Show compassion and empathy for suffering dogs by banning the atrocity that is the dog meat trade. Enough of this morally filthy trade in the death of humans most loving and loyal companion animal, the dog. Offer retraining for the individuals and groups involved in this cruel ‘business’. The cultural defence is not an acceptable excuse. Show some will and end this barbarous practice of the dog meat trade!
