Partnership Campaign – South Korea – Merck Life Science

Merck Life Science CEO Matthias Heinzel: Please tell your Partner Country, South Korea, that you oppose the torture, killing, and consumption of dogs and cats.

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.

The Korea Herald reported on 5/3/2023, “Merck, a leading science and technology company based in Germany, said Wednesday it plans to build a bioprocessing unit in Daejeon, South Korea. Under a three-way memorandum of understanding signed by the firm with Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the government of Daejeon, they will discuss detailed plans for building the international pharmaceutical company’s new bioprocessing unit that can produce raw materials for drugs.”

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of South Korea’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – one was for so-called “Health Centers,” 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” – resulted in thousands of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in South Korea.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be in South Korea to supply these outlets.

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

    HOW LONG will the WORLD watch unspeakable tortures inflicted on dogs and cats at South Korea’s dog-meat markets and do nothing about it. How can you talk about “peace” and “democracy” while shocking horrors are regularly committed on defenseless, loving and innocent animals in front of your eyes! Skinning dogs and cats alive, cooking them alive and other appalling tortures shall NOT BE SILENCED, but openly directed to the South-Korean President. We live in 2023 and this abomination must end!
    Those who visit this COUNTRY of HORRORS have the obligation to scrutinize its shocking ways of animal abuse and TAKE ACTION!

    I totally agree with you!!
    It’s downright unbelievable that this is allowed even though they are ILLEGAL KENNELS, IT’S JUST TORTURE THE WHOLE LIFE OF THE DOG / CAT AND THEY ARE KILLED AS CRUELLY AS POSSIBLE.
    It’s downright incomprehensible that the rest of the world doesn’t intervene very often and pressure that brutal and primitive torture of animals to be killed and finished as food.
    I hope that people will also put pressure on the decision-makers with pictures.

    I agree with Lund as well! Absolutely appalling!!!! I dont understand why any civilized nation even deals with these vile savages!!! I think they should be kicked out of the UN!!! This is a nation of non humans so they should not be treated as such! As long as other nations sit back and allow this to happen I believe we will continue to reap negative energy/karma…like COVID and things like that as those are all derived from disgraceful animal abuse!! Wake up civilized people and do something about this NOW!!!!!!!!! I am tired of seeing these disgusting pictures and signing letters about something that should have been done away with at the time of cave men for crying out loud!!!
