Pocheon, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.

Pocheon Mayor Park Yoon-Gook

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

In Pocheon, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Pocheon’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants”.

The searches resulted in: 102 Health Food Shops; and 73 restaurants in the vicinity of Pocheon.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Pocheon in order to supply all of these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    Dear Sir,
    Can I have your attention please ?
    Dogs are wonderful animals, and we humans must be grateful for al the help they give us.
    They are used for helping disabled people, blind humans ,as companions for elderly people .There are drug detecting dogs , rescue dogs, they can even detect cancer in humans. But apart from being so useful, they are man’s best friend !
    And what are the South Korean people doing with these lovely animals ,dogs and cats also ? They are eating them !
    But before being eaten, they have to suffer atrociously .
    They have to live in extremely small cages . And at the end of their miserable lives, they are tortured , skinned alive, cooked alive and/or their fur is burned off t alive. It makes me cry.
    I can feel that you must be ashamed that your people are committing such barbaric acts against animals.
    Please try to convince your presedent to use all his INFLUENCE TO STOP THAT HORROR AND TRY TO EDUCATE THEM IN THEIR BEHAVIOR TOWARDS ANIMALS.
    Do not ignore it. Ignoring is even worse than doing it.
    Someone very famous once said you can measure the rate of civilisation of someone by his attitude towards animals .
