The Korea Times reported on July 31, “An increasing number of people are calling for tougher punishment against those who abuse animals, with claims that that the current law is too lenient. A public petition was posted on the Cheong Wa Dae website, Monday, demanding that the government strongly punish those who maltreat animals. It had more than 107,000 signatories as of Wednesday.
The call came after a YouTuber with 37,000 subscribers, live-streamed himself beating and throwing his puppy to the floor numerous times last week. Angered viewers called the police to stop him and police officers visited his house, but the YouTuber refused to admit them, saying, “Disciplining my dog is none of your business.” Angered by his act of cruelty, the Korean Animal Welfare Association (KAWA) reported him to the Seongdong Police Station in Seoul, Monday. “
