BREAKING NEWS! Notorious Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market to Close Down
We have great news to share!!! Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan KAPCA) announced that the notorious Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market will be closing down. Nineteen shops in the market which sell dog meat have tentatively agreed to close their business before July 12th. Dog butchers will be given very generous compensation packages from the district office which promised to give about 3.1 million won ($2,700) to each of them, every month until December 2020. We hope that none of these dog butchers from Gupo will relocate their businesses to somewhere else.
Busan KAPCA, along with many individual activists in Korea, have fought long and hard for this. We, KoreanDogs.org, have also been campaigning to close down Busan Gupo Market for many years now. We thank everyone who took action to help.
Let us continue to fight until the dog meat industry ends for good in South Korea.
