New Sister City Campaigns –
Jincheon, Jecheon, Sokcho, Donghae and Changwon

At the beginning of this year we made the decision to focus our efforts on launching as many Sister City campaigns as possible. As of today, we’ve launched approximately 80 campaigns. To take action on our newest Sister City Campaigns please click each of the links below. We don’t say it often enough but without you, our caring supporters in so many countries around the world, our campaigns would not exist and we would not be able to speak out on behalf of the animals suffering in the horrendous Korean dog and cat meat trade. We’d like to take this opportunity to say Thank You for being the voice of those animals who cannot speak for themselves.

Jecheon, South Korea –Spokane, Washington Petition

Sokcho, South Korea –Gresham, Oregon Petition

Donghae, South Korea –Federal Way, Washington Petition

<상개동 가축시장 잔인한 도살사건, 항고촉구 기자회견에 힘을 모아주십시오-잔인 주의>
지난 여름 말복날 울산 상개동가축시장에서 개고기용으로 개를 잔인하게 도살하던 현장을 울산시청과 남구청 담당자, 그리고 부산동물학대방지연합 소속 명예감시원들이 적발을 하였습니다.
이 사건은 개도축장에서 살아있는 상태로 목을 찔러 피를 뽑은 점, 동종의 동물이 보는 앞에서 죽인 점 등 동물보호법 제8조 동물학대등의 금지 위반이 명백하여 울산 남구청에서 경찰에 고발을 하였고 사건은 검찰로 송치가 되었습니다.
그러나, 울산지방검찰청은 개도축장 주인에게는 무혐의, 종업원에게는 기소유예 처분을 내렸습니다. 기소유예는 무혐의와 다를바 없습니다.
동물보호법 제8조를 위반한 자는 동법 제46조 벌칙 조항에 의거 1년 이하의 징역이나 1천만원 이하의 벌금에 처하게 됩니다.
또한, 업주가 직원에게 잔인한 방법으로 개를 도살하게 하였다면 형법상 교사의 죄를 물을 수도 있습니다.
그럼에도 불구하고, 울산지방검찰청은 업주와 직원에게 면죄부를 준 상황이며, 이 결과는 검찰이 제대로 사건을 수사하지 않아서 나온 결과라고 주장하고 싶습니다.
또한, 울산남구청은 검찰결과에 따른 시민단체의 항의에 마지못해 항고를 하겠다고 발표를 하고선 어제밤 갑자기 항고를 하지 않겠다며 이 처벌결과에 만족한다는 의견을 표명했습니다.
이런 울산남구청의 입장은 오로지 행정편의주의적인, 사회의 제도와 시스템을 무시하는 행정의 갑질이라고 규정합니다.
본 건에 대한 항고 등의 법적 절차는 오로지 고발자인 울산남구청만 진행 할 수 있기 때문입니다.
항고를 하지 않고 단속을 철저히 강화하겠다는 울산남구청 담당계장에게 묻고 싶습니다. 이 같은 결과에 승복을 해 버린 공무원의 단속을 그 누가 두려워 하겠습니까?
앞으로 잔인한 도살이 거리낌없이 행해질 가능성만 커지게 되었습니다.
이런 명백한 도살현장도 이런 가벼운 처벌이라면 앞으로 개도살업자들이 얼마나 마음놓고 설쳐댈지.. 끔찍합니다.
울산남구청은 즉각 항고를 진행하여야 합니다.
부산동물학대방지연합과 동물자유연대 부산지부는 내일 울산남구청 앞에서 기자회견을 열어 항고촉구를 다시 할 예정입니다. 일인시위 지원자가 있을 경우 일인시위도 할 예정입니다.
날짜가 임박한 것은 알고 있으나 항고기간 때문에 어쩔 수가 없습니다.
내일 참여가능하신 분은 오셔서 힘을 실어주시기 바랍니다.
<상개동 가축시장의 잔인한 도살사건 항고를 촉구하는 기자회견>
일시 : 2016년 12월 1일 오전 10시30분
장소 : 울산남구청앞
문의 : 부산동물학대방지연합 051-817-0993
*일인시위에 지원해주실 분 계시면 연락주십시오.
*참여못하시는 분들은 울산남구청과 울산시청에 항고촉구하는 민원글을 남겨주시길 부탁드립니다.

Supportive Chattanooga responds to
call to action against the dog meat trade


Andy Berke, Mayor of Chattanooga, has replied to our Gangneung Sister City campaign/petition that we sent to his office (see below), and we are pleased to say that he has responded positively. He feels the same as we do about the need to address any animal cruelty issues, and was grateful to us for bringing this matter to his attention and for sending the video, which he found disturbing but, importantly, did watch. Chattanooga now has an opportunity of re-establishing their dormant Sister City Relationship with Gangneung, and Mayor Berke has said that, at that time, he will take the matter up with them.

​We can sense Mayor Berke’s willingness to help in this issue and we would like to thank him and the members of his office for their kind words, and for listening to our concerns and taking action.

SaveKoreanDogs –
converting a “meat dog” farm into a boarding facility

SaveKoreanDogs has been working with a “meat dog” farmer to convert his dog farm into a boarding facility for the dogs rescued from the meat industry.  They are trying to make this a model case for other dog farmers to follow.  Click HERE to follow this story and more from Nami and her team in Korea.

Video: SaveKoreanDogs. Rescued dogs are being relocated from another temporary boarding facility to the this “meat dog” farm converted boarding near the SaveKoreanDogs’ sanctuary. Now that they are much closer to Nami and her team, these dogs will be better taken care of.

“To maintain the integrity of human life, to purify of our emotions for the peace in our society, dog slaughter and dog meat consumption must disappear. The government must strictly govern and eradicate ruthless dog killing and dog farm noise pollution from this society by actively intervening in this issue and thoroughly enforcing the current laws prohibiting this practice.”  Venerable Beopjeong
