The massive dog farm in Pyeongtaek, with thousands of dogs, is still operating!

Sharing for Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE)

Do you remember the massive dog farm in Pyeongtaek, where thousands of dogs were imprisoned and operated by a former president of the Korean Dog Farmers Trade Association? Despite the relentless efforts of the Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE) since 2021 to shut down this facility, it continues to operate. The Pyeongtaek Government’s shameful inaction and the dog farmer’s defiance have allowed this hellscape to persist. Last March, CARE mobilized at the dog farm, urging the local government to take action.

They are confined to raised wire cages in cramped spaces where they cannot even turn around. Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE).

Massive dog farm in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province, where thousands of dogs are imprisoned in agony CARE.

CARE monitored a massive dog farm in Pyeongtaek for approximately 30 days. In animal rights activism, this dedicated observation is often termed a “vigil” – an act of vigilance, remembrance, documentation, and unveiling of cruelty. By surveilling this site, CARE aimed to uncover the brutal reality of “raised wire cages” and stop the dogs from being dragged to the slaughterhouse.

Eventually, CARE activists received a court order prohibiting them from approaching within 100 meters of the dog farm until July 5, 2024, and were chased away from the scene. Nevertheless, CARE remains undeterred in their commitment to shut down this dog farm. The haunting images of dogs being forcibly removed from the raised wire cages, cramped and in agony and pain, destined for the slaughterhouse, persist in their memory. They cannot forget the sight of helpless dogs enduring their fate or those desperately seeking assistance, their heads poking out from broken wire cages.

CARE, AD, and the Catchdog Team organized rallies outside Pyeongtaek Station and made numerous visits to Pyeongtaek City Hall to educate and persuade officials. The upcoming decision from Pyeongtaek City Hall is eagerly anticipated, especially considering their initial response, asserting that the situation does not constitute abuse simply because the dogs can sit and stand on wire cages.

Administrative sanctions are gradually being imposed for the illegal activities of the dog farm we previously reported. Despite our complaints to the local government years ago, numerous violations persist, indicating an ongoing disregard for the law.

• Additional charges for violation of the National Land Planning and Utilization Act
• Administrative disposition for violation of the Farm Land Act
• Administrative disposition for violation of the Agricultural and Fishing Village Improvement Act
• Administrative disposition for violation of the Building Act
• Administrative disposition for violation of the Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta
• Administrative disposition for violation of the Waste Control Act

This is the reality of the dog farm operated by a former Korean Dog Farmers Trade Association president.

We persist in our outcry: “That is animal abuse; you must protect those dogs.” Despite the enactment of the law to end dog meat consumption, tens of thousands of dogs are still confined to dog farms, with new puppies continually being born into this cycle of suffering. This underscores the ongoing necessity for animal activists to advocate during the three-year grace period. We implore you to unite with us and raise your voices. Let us stand as witnesses against the violence inflicted upon these poor animals.

CARE’s Facebook post in Korean:

케어는 30일여간 평택의 한 초대형 개농장 앞을 지켰습니다. 비질(vigil)이라는 말이 있습니다. 동물운동가들이 밤새 도살장 앞을 지키며 “폭력의 증인이 되어 기억, 기록, 공유하는 활동”을 말합니다. 일종의 고문 도구인 뜬장을 폭로하고, 개들을 도살장으로 끌고 가는 걸 막기 위해 그곳을 지켰습니다.

결국 법원으로부터 2024.7.5까지 개농장으로부터 100미터 이내에 접근하지 마라는 명령을 받고 현장에서 쫓겨났습니다. 하지만 저희는 이 현장을 포기하지 않을 것입니다. 뜬장에서 끌려나와 뜰망에 구겨져 도살장으로 실려갈 개들, 몸을 움츠리고 무력하게 시간을 견디고 있을 개들, 뚫린 뜬장 위로 머리를 내밀어 도움의 눈길을 보내는 듯한 개의 얼굴을 잊을 수 없기 때문입니다.

그동안 케어, AD, 캣치독팀은 평택역 앞에서 시민들에게 호소하는 집회를 열고, 여러 차례 평택시청으로 들어가 공무원들을 교육하고 설득했습니다. “앉았다 일어설 수 있기 때문에 학대가 아니”라고 처음 답했던 평택시청이 이제는 어떤 결정을 내릴지 시민 모두가 지켜볼 것입니다.

저희가 민원을 넣은 해당 개농장의 불법 사항에 대해서는 하나둘씩 행정처분이 내려지고 있습니다. 몇 년 전 지자체로부터 고발까지 당했지만 버티고 있는 불법 사항도 여럿입니다.
-국토계획법 위반 추가 고발
-농지법 위반 행정처분
-농어촌정비법 위반 행정처분
-건축법 위반 행정처분
-가축분뇨법 위반 행정처분
-폐기물관리법 위반 행정처분
이게 전 육견협회이 운영한다는 개농장의 현실입니다.

저희는 계속 외칩니다. 저것은 동물 학대라고, 저 개들을 보호하라고. 아직 개농장에 남은 수십만의 개들과 계속 태어날 강아지들에게는 개식용종식법이 의미가 없습니다. 유예 기간 동안 동물운동가들이 계속 싸워야 할 이유입니다. 시민 여러분들도 함께 외쳐주십시오. 동물에 대한 폭력의 증인이 되어주십시오.

    Viele Menschen in Südkorea scheinen nocht nicht im 21.Jahrhundert angekommen zu sein. Was die Regierung des Landes anbetrifft, scheint sie weder gewillt, noch in der LOage zusein, diese große Schande endlich zu beseitigen. Was müssen das für Menschen sein, die hilflosen Mitgeschöpfen so ein großes Lesid zufügen? Ignorant, ohne jegliches Mitgefühl, verantwortungslos und unvorstellbar grausam. Südkorea ein Land, das in der Welt ein ausgesprochen negatives Image und eine untätige und ignorante Regierung hat! Kein Erzeugnis aus diesem Land mit den vielen grausamen Menschen kommt bei uns ins Haus.

    This abhorrent treatment of dogs does nothing to enhance the image and reputation of Korea in the world. This is despicable and no humans with any compassion would allow such operations to continue. Does not Korea have any conscience or compassion for other living things at all? As long as these atrocities continue, I think not, and will avoid any product made in Korea until it stops completely. It is time Korea comes into the 21st century!!
