Gupo Market Dog Cruelty Case First Prison Sentence for Accessory to Violation of Animal Protection Act
For the first time, a prison sentence was given for aiding and abetting in animal cruelty. On May 3rd, animal rights group Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE) stated, “The sentence in the dog cruelty case at the Busan Gupo Market is meaningful because it affirms that even without direct involvement in the cruel act, any enablement or neglect of such acts can be a violation of the Animal Protection Act.”
On April 24th, the western regional office of the Busan District Court handed down a ruling for the case, which happened last August at the Busan Gupo market. An employee of a health food (dog elixir) shop chased an escaped dog for several hundred meters before tying its feet to a metal snare and then dragging the dog along the sidewalk before slaughtering him.
The employee who abused the dog was sentenced to a fine of 1 million won (approximately $900 USD) for a violation of Article 8, Paragraph 2, Items 1 and 2 of the Animal Protection Act. The owner of the health food shop where the violator worked was sentenced to 6 months of imprisonment and 2 years of probation for violating the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act and being an accessory to the violation of the Animal Protection Act.
