Response from Gwangmyeong regarding a large-scale dog slaughterhouse

We received the below response from the City of Gwangmyeong regarding our campaign/petition: Help us shut down a large-scale dog slaughterhouse in Gwangmyeong! Click HERE to see our campaign.

This dog farm no longer have dogs. The structure has been found to be illegal, so the city of Gwangmyeong will take measures to demolish it.

Our campaign is effective because now they are aware that the eyes of the world are watching what’s going on in their city’s dog meat industry and bring this issue the attention and action from their government. Let’s keep up the pressure by taking action!

1. Thank you for participating in the development of our city.
2. As for the illegal slaughter of dogs that you mentioned, we inform that dogs are not subject to the Livestock Hygiene Control Act as they are not defined as the livestock in the law.
3. In addition, regarding for the animal abuse behavior according to the Animal Protection Act, I have been on the field(dog breeding farm) and interviewed with landowner, but it is judged that the owner is not breeding any dogs at present.
4. Currently, administrative measures for the illegal buildings are in progress by the City Policy division of our city, and if there is any suspicion about animal abuse, it is planned for us to take actions by Article 8 of the Animal Protection Act.
5. For more information, please contact the Animal Welfare Team of the Urban Agriculture Division.

1. 우리시 시정 발전에 참여해 주셔서 감사합니다 2. 민원인께서 말씀하신 개 불법 도축에 대해서는 개는 축산물 위생관리법에 적용받는 가축 및 축산물이 아니기에 관련법 적용 대상이 아님을 알려드립니다. 3. 또한 동물보호법 제8조에 따른 동물학대 행위 여부에 대해서는 2회에 걸쳐 현장 확인하였고 토지 소유주와 면담을 실시 하였으나 현재 개를 사육하지 않는 것으로 판단됩니다. 4. 현재 불법건축물에 대한 해당부서의 행정처분이 진행 중이오며 향후 동물보호법 제8조에 대한 의심 사항이 있을 경우 관련법에 따라 조치할 계획임을 알려드립니다. 5. 기타 문의사항은 도시농업과 동물복지팀(☎02-2680-6446)으로 연락주시면 자세히 안내하여 드리겠습니다.

    I would take this reply with a large pinch of salt. They’re fobbing you off with vague statements and promises. There are no dogs ‘at present’ would imply to me that there could be in the future, or that he’s moved them elsewhere. Wouldn’t trust these fuckers as far as I could throw them. Please please keep up the pressure, thank you so much for what you’re doing.
