South Korea’s First Testimony by a Dog

 
 
For the first time in South Korea, a dog has submitted testimony to the police. On September 20th, we visited the Cheonan Seobuk Police Station with Nova, who we rescued from being burned alive at a notorious slaughterhouse in Cheonan City. He was revived using CPR after being hanged by the neck in preparation for his slaughter. Slaughtering of dogs in this manner—and worse—had been going on for 20 years.
 
The slaughterhouse owner’s methods of slaughter were undeniable violations of animal rights laws, and we are calling for the authorities to impose the maximum penalty allowable under the law.
 

 
According to Clause 1 Article 8 of South Korea’s Animal Protection Act, the following acts are prohibited.
 
  • Cruel slaughter methods, such as hanging, and • performing the slaughter in areas visible to other animals as well as to passersby, such as from roads. 
  • Violators can be sentenced to imprisonment for up to 2 years or fined up to 20 million KRW (Approx. 16,700 USD).
 
It may be a long time—if ever—for Nova to recover from the trauma of that night. Animals suffer from emotional trauma and pain just like we do.
 
Nova’s experience was transcribed into a first-person testimony and delivered to the investigator in charge at Cheonan Seobuk Police Station. Click HERE to learn more.
