“Over 1 Million Dogs Being Raised for Food
in Appalling Conditions”

The Korea Bizwire reported on June 23 that “On June 22, Rep. Lee Jung Mi of the Justice Party and animal rights activist group Korea Animal Rights Advocates KARA held a press conference at the National Assembly in Yeouido to publicly disclose the state of dog meat farms in Korea.  Beginning in August of last year, an investigation into the general practices of 20 dog meat farms revealed horrifying conditions. Dogs were kept in tiny steel cages so small that the animals could not even stretch out properly.”

Bucheon Mayor Kim Man-Soo
publicly suggests that his city become dog meat-free.

On June 23rd, Bucheon Mayor Kim Man-Soo posted a message on his personal Facebook page asking, “How about our city going without dog meat?”

Nami Kim had personally delivered our online petition signatures to Mayor Kim Man-Soo two weeks ago, and had a lengthy meeting with him discussing this issue.

[Campaign update] Yeoju responds.

Our petition to the Mayor is to thank him for all his efforts to end the dog meat trade in his city so far, which is virtually unheard of in Korean cities and government. It is very important to encourage him to make Bucheon the first “Dog Meat-Free City” in Korea. We would like Mayor Kim to be the example for other Mayors and Governors.
