KARA: We condemn The Ministry of Environment
and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs
for their loopholes in legislation!

Ban the feeding of food waste to animals!

 
SOUTH KOREA – The nation of Samsung, Hyundai, LG, Kia thinks that dogs are nothing more than garbage disposals! South Korea wants to continue feeding dogs decomposed, maggot infested food waste; unfit for any animal to eat. This food waste is often contaminated with disease causing germs, toothpicks, hot red peppers and onions – toxic to dogs! Cruel, absurd, insane and disgusting!!

KARA: Help us shut down a large-scale
dog slaughterhouse in Gwangmyeong!

 
This is translation of Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA)’s campaign posted on May 14, 2019:

We need your help to file civil complaints to demolish a dog farm that leaves dogs neglected among piles of garbage!

After a dog slaughterhouse was demolished in Taepyeong-dong last year, dog butchers have moved their base throughout the Gyeonggi Province to continue their terrible dog slaughter. Through the vigilant efforts of the Gyeonggi Province Special Judicial Police, an illegal dog slaughterhouse was raided in Gwangju, Gyeonggi Province last March. Along with the Special Judicial Police, KARA actively advocates for animal welfare and strives to shut down dog slaughterhouses.

Earlier this May, KARA received a tip about a dog slaughterhouse in Gyeonggi Province and headed to Gwangmyeong to conduct a preliminary investigation. When we searched the address that the informant gave to us on a web mapping service, it directed us to a junk yard. However, when we arrived at the location, there was a long-shaped large building in the middle of the farmland. Like many other large-scale dog farms, there was a No Entry sign and a CCTV at the door, and the exterior was surrounded by large steel plates.

South Koreans:
Stop the illegal dog and cat meat trades! 

 
File your petition on e-people
South Korea’s Official Government Petition Page!
 
South Korea is truly a “Hell on Earth” for countless innocent dogs and cats in their dog and cat meat industry. So, please, don’t let the Koreans continue their vile and cruel practice.
 
A simple but very effective way is to file a petition directly with the Korean government using the epeople online petition page. This is different than other petitions because the Korean government is responsible for responding to you! If they have to address and respond to hundreds, thousands or hundreds of thousands of petitions on this issue; then perhaps they will finally be put under enough pressure to take action to bring this horrific animal cruelty to an end.

Cheong Wa Dae to Respond to Petition Calling for the Rescue of Retired Working Dogs Used in Lab Experiments

 
The Korea Bizwire reported on May 17, 2019, “Cheong Wa Dae (Korea’s Presidential House) petition calling on authorities to rescue retired detection dogs being used for experiments at the Seoul National University (SNU) has collected more than 200,000 signatures, reaching the minimum requirement to receive an official response from the presidential office.”

“The controversy has led the university to shut down the ‘smart detection dog development project’ led by Lee, and suspend his position as the head of the SNU Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee at SNU reported on May 9 that Lee brought in ‘May’ and other detection dogs without the committee’s approval, and conducted tests that were not stipulated in the research proposal. Seoul Gwanak Police Station is currently investigating allegations made against Lee.”
