Response (or lack thereof) from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs regarding Gangwon-do Fire

We received the below response from the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs to our petition – “South Korea, punish the people who abandoned their chained up dogs to be burned to death or injured in the fire!” – which was sent to the Prosecutor General of Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office Moon Moo-Il, Minister of Justice Park Sang-Ki, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Lee Gae-Ho. The response claims that my petition is a duplicate issue and that they have already responded to my other petitions. But that is not the case. The other petitions that they are referring to here are regarding the banning of the dog and cat meat trade. This petition is asking Korean government to punish the people who abandoned their chained up dogs to be burned to death or injured in the fire! Why are they the same? The Prosecutor General of Supreme Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Minister of Justice office did not respond. This is an example of typical indifferent and neglectful attitude of South Korea’s government.

    Why can’t the government just do their job. There is a second petition addressing the confinement of pets that resulted in them burning to death or maimed. Kick these basta%ds out since they are so indifferent to animals/pets…..these officials make SK people look bad to the world.
