Naju: Illegal meat dog auction market in Youngsanpo
Picturesque and seemingly peaceful village of Anchang-ri in Naju-city, Youngsanpo is famous for its Meat Dog Auction Market that is held everyday except on national holidays. Dogs from all over the place are auctioned off within 2 hours in a lightening efficiency. This auction market is for meat dogs only. No pet dogs are sold here. One dog trader was bragging about how dog trade is a lot more profitable than cow trade so they should not be underestimated.
Dogs traded in this market are transported to the markets all over the large cities in S. Korea such as infamous “Moran Market” in Seongnam-city and “Gupo Market” in Busan. Dogs tied tightly in the neck are helpless in the hands of the heartless dog traders. Dogs being sacrificed for the human selfishness and greed….. Let’s keep telling everyone about this and start a movement against this betrayal of mans’ best friends.
