[Urgent Petition] Stop Dog Meat Infected with Canine Influenza being Traded in South Korea
Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE) visited the Taepyeong dog slaughterhouse on the 15th of August. The dogs rescued from the slaughterhouse at that time were discovered to be infected with Canine Influenza. The reason for this is that living dogs were kept in the same cages as dogs who had died. Before they died, more than 10 of the dogs were coughing up blood. It is evident that the dogs had died from a contagious disease.
CARE removed 5 dead dogs and two very sick dogs from the cages. On examination, the sick dogs tested positive for Canine Influenza. Unfortunately, after examination, both of the sick dogs died coughing blood. Canine Influenza is a highly contagious airborne virus. Click HERE to learn more from CARE’s page and sign petition.

Call for Action: South Koreans: start taking responsibility for enforcing your own country’s laws: stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.
Despite the fact that dog and cat meat consumption is an everyday occurrence and is being carried out all over South Korea, it is NOT LEGAL in that country. Their Government does nothing to stop this illegal practice and they seem happy to ignore it; many Korean citizens are just as apathetic and must also be held accountable.
This is the 21st Century, and it is high time that all South Koreans, leaders and general public alike, stand up and take responsibility to enforce their own country’s laws. South Korea and South Koreans cannot continue to ignore these brutal and unethical trades, so let us campaign to urge each of South Korea’s cities to enforce their laws and to put an immediate end to these illegal dog and cat meat trades.
Below are the most populous cities in South Korea. Please sign our petitions and send postal letters to these cities calling for an end to these illegal trades.
We are grateful to the Animals’ Battalion, the Holmans and all the caring and dedicated activists who have helped out at this year’s “Boknal” Demonstrations to speak out against the horrific cruelty of South Korea’s dog and cat meat trade! Their actions have helped to put more pressure on the Korean government to end the shameful and extremely cruel companion animal meat trade.
