Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics!

Send a message to the Olympic Committee that we will boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics until S. Korea ends the shameful and cruel practice of eating dogs and cats :  https://secure.registration.olympic.org/en/faq/ask-question

Subject:  Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics

To the International Olympic Committee: I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in S. Korea. Even though S. Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers. Until S. Korea ends this atrocity, S. Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And S. Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking. From now on, I will boycott “PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics” and S. Korean products and I will not visit S. Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended.

      The famous words of Mahatma Gandhi say it all:
      ‘The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated’.

    The horror of eating animals that are family members and rescuers, police, military, therapy, seeing eyes – and yet they are cooked as food??? What kind of sick mentality can excuse this?

THEY MUST STAND UNITED TO CHANGE THERE EVIL SATANIC WAY OF LIFE. WE ARE TRYING TO PRODUCE MEAT IN THE LAB NOW LOOK AT TIME MAGAZINE THEY DID IT SO NOW TELL ME WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO WHEN THE WORLD EATS LAB GROWN MEATS.

YOU PEOPLE HAVE NO HEART OR CONSCIENCE. SO CHANGE YOUR EVIL AND HEARTLESS WAY OF LIFE.

      I am Korean. Well, I disagree to the fact that our nations are doing these horrible things. But you guys need to understand that eating dogs had been our culture when since our nations were hungry when the war occurred between North Korea and when Japanese armies took away everything Korean had. The fact that some people are eating dogs was not because we are bad. You guys also has a unique culture that we don’t understand so as us. Stop saying that Koreans are bad and evil and that S.Korea is the place where nobody should go touring. Torturing dogs and cats are extremely bad and I think those people should go to prison. We ourself is working hard to get rid of those people who are giving shame to other people and makes our country to a ‘third country’. By various kinds of works that our nation did, torturing animals had been decreased dramatically but still there are some people who are still doing crime. Having bad factors of some people doesn’t mean everyone is doing. So guys, stop saying about how our government is and our nations is.

        Hi Julie,

        I agree, generalizing about an entire population is ignorant. But it takes an huge population to work together to make a change and in Korea, I simply did not see it.

        As an expat who has lived in Korea and saw first hand how this “situation” is being dealt with makes me laugh/vomit. Next to NOTHING is being done by the locals to implement change, laws, or regulations. More is being done to hide this ugly reality from the rest of the world in attempts to save face. I spoke with hundreds of Koreans about the dog meat industry and 90% claimed “no such thing” was happening. Many of these people were pet owners themselves. When presented with photos from the Moran market in Seoul: “That’s not in Korea.”

        This isn’t an endearing “cultural” practice that needs to be promoted in modern times. Koreans even feel a need to lie about the existence of the industry. They know the world is horrified by it but they don’t do anything about it.

        Modern day Korea is advanced and does not need to light dogs on fire for survival. I’ve traveled extensively to some of the world’s most destitute and poor regions where eating dog is truly about life or death. When it comes time to slaughter, it is done quickly. Just because you claim something to be “cultural” does not mean it is necessary.

          It is nonsense to claim eating dogs is your culture and even if it is, it is totally unacceptable.Yes other developed countries do view korea as primitive and barbaric. You cant claim that you eat dog because you are starving or were starving, because it is much more efficient to feed the population a vegetarian diet rather than a meat diet of whatever type. Look at the United Nations web site.

        The Japanese Korean war was a long time ago. There is NO EXCUSE whatsoever for the kind of heinous cruelty. One cannot deny that Koreans are “unaware” of the extreme pain, terror, and apparent inability to recognize the horrific reactions to this cruelty exhibited by the dogs and cats they torture. NO HUMAN CAN DENY THE PAIN THESE ANIMALS ARE SUBJECTED TO! Further, this is no longer a “cultural” behavior. Dogmeat does NOT cure tuberculosis! THAT’S A SCIENTIFIC FACT, yet rural “cultural” Koreans believe otherwise. The Korean government has had decades to stop this but has done nothing about it. They are so busy trying to sell their cheap products to Americans they have turned their backs to decency, integrity, and sensitivity! So get off the CULTURAL high horse and face the facts that Koreans can no longer claim “cultural” as an excuse to kill! The people who participate in this as well as those who turn their backs and who could do something to stop it should be disposed of exactly the way they “dispose” of the animals! THAT would be justice!

    The only thing I can say about eating dogs and cats in Korea is I really don’t see the reason y they have to stop eating those animals. People from Western culture also eat other animals, cows, chicken, and pigs which is also illegal to eat them in Arabic culture. Every single country has their own culture and now the reporter is trying to ruin Korean tradition. Although many people love dogs and cats as their pets, they have to remember the pets are animals which could be considered as Food in other places. P.S I don’t really eat cats or dogs, so please respect our culture and stop disrespect my people
