VICTIMS OF NEGLIGENCE
260 dogs and cats burnt to death from fire
at the Anseong City Animal Shelter
Hundreds of dogs and cats, which should have been safe from harm, in the care of an Anseong animal shelter have died in a raging fire that swept through the property.
If this shelter had been managed properly, then those animals would have remained safe. They are now dead. Someone must be held to account, and a lesson must be learned so that others in similar positions of responsibility will be very clear of their duties towards animals in their care, which extends above and beyond the basic provision of food and a cage.
New Calls for Action! South Koreans:
Stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades.
The weather has already dropped to
freezing in South Korea!
All across South Korea, millions of ‘meat dogs’ (including newborn puppies) which are destined for human consumption, are kept outdoors in meat farms and slaughterhouses, imprisoned in cages that are crudely constructed of wire and raised off the ground, and which afford no protection from the snow or freezing winds that are part of a normal winter in that country. These poor creatures – from the second they are born, to their final breath at the uncaring hands of a brutal butcher – have to endure endless misery and agony. South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice: click the links below to take action today to help fight the South Korean dog and cat meat trades.
This is an incident of animal abuse which happened at an apartment building construction site in Ulsan, Korea. A man strikes a dog tied to a post at the construction site with an aluminum pipe over one meter long, and at least three times. We received this video last summer, but the owner of this video was reluctant to publicly reveal this video at the time, so we reported the incident to the police. We had never received an update of the investigation, so we contacted the police for a response. It was the learned that an indictment for this obvious case of animal abuse was suspended. In other words, it was acknowledged that the abuser committed a crime, but he was not charged.
The animal abuse crime was acknowledged but indictment was suspended because: 1) the abuser claimed to be the dog’s owner; 2) the abuser struck the dog because the dog bit him while he was trying to feed the dog; 3) the dog suffered only minor injuries; 4) the abuser did not have a past history of similar crimes, and 5) the Citizen’s Prosecutorial Committee gave the recommendation to suspend indictment.
During the investigation, the dog disappeared and when we inquired about the whereabouts of the dog, we were told from the police that the perpetrator sent away the dog somewhere and were shown a picture of the dog.
