Bucheon: a new light shines in the darkness.
Bucheon City has a mayor to be proud of! Mayor Man-Soo Kim is actively working towards ending dog meat consumption in his City.
In addition to responding to the approach made by Mayor Harvey Hall, from their Sister City, Bakersfield, who contacted Bucheon – as a direct result of the pressure from our Sister City Campaign – Nami Kim has been talking to, and working together with, various city officials.
This is a very important step, as not only are those in charge willing to hear what Nami is saying to them about this ‘unacceptable’ trade, but the city has taken positive steps: passing new animal protection laws, and sending representatives from their offices, and the animal welfare department, out with Nami and her team, to support and coordinate rescue.
These are early days, and it is, of course, an uphill climb; but if Bucheon can become an entirely “Dog Meat Free Zone”, this would be a fantastic example to set for all other cities in Korea.
We really commend Bucheon on their action, and we applaud all of those within the city offices and other departments who were involved in this positive and inspiring action.
