The Korean Animal Rights Advocates (KARA), the Korean Welfare Animal Association and the Beagle Rescue Network (BRN) co-organized the event on the World Day for Laboratory Animals. “As the Animal Protection Law stipulates that working dogs are banned from being used in animal experimentation, how could Lee conduct experiments on this dog. His animal experiments with a retired working dog, which is unprecedented in the world, have become an object of derision and show the reality of animal rights in Korea,” they added.
Will the Korean celebrities play their part? We added BLACKPINK and BTS to our campaign.
In South Korea, celebrities are worshiped and admired by so many people, from all age groups. Their fans are keen to know all about them, they listen to all their messages, watch everything they do and take in what they say – and this special place in the hearts of their admirers means that the celebrities have a real opportunity to make a difference for their country. We are now asking the celebrities to make this difference for the animals in their country by publicly opposing the horrendous dog-meat trade and helping to bring about its permanent end.
We have added BLACKPINK and BTS, hugely popular even in the US and around the world. They can prove that their country is one to be proud, they can speak out about these wrongdoing, their fans will listen – and they will make a difference.
