After asking all around, we were able to locate the meat dog auction market that we heard to be taking place in the woods.

0:00:08.000,0:00:13.000
“Meat Dog” Auction Market. A secret market that only allows in dog traders and dog middleman.

0:00:14.000,0:00:18.000
Various breeds of dogs are locked up in metal cages.

0:00:19.000,0:00:26.000
You can also see pet dogs in the size of a human arm.

OO Health Food Center.
We decided to investigate the process of acquiring dogs to sale at the auction market with a dog trader who operates a Health Food Center.

0:00:40.000,0:00:48.000
Sell your dog! Sell your dog!
This dog trader drives around villages every early morning and buys dogs people bring to him.

0:00:49.000,0:00:55.000
Man: This is a dog my brother brought from when he used to work at Jindo.

0:00:56.000,0:01:01.000
Not knowing why he is being taken there, the dog is struggling to resist getting on the truck.

0:01:02.000,0:01:07.000
However, the dog owner is coldheartedly pushing the dog he was raising into the cage.

0:01:08.000,0:01:16.000
And then he gives a small Balbari dog for free as a bonus.

0:01:17.000,0:01:25.000
I paid 70,000 Korean won ($66 USD) for them but I can sell the large one for about 100,000 Korean won ($94 USD).

0:01:26.000,0:01:33.000
I make a profit of 30,000 Korean won ($28 USD) when I sell it at the auction. That’s good enough for me. Haha…. And the Balbari was free.

0:01:34.000,0:01:39.000
Undercover: Is Balbari all profit?
Dog trader: Yes.

0:01:42.000,0:01:50.000
At the next village, about 3-4 people are waiting to sell their dogs they have been raising at home to the dog trader.

0:01:51.000,0:01:54.000
This time there are small typical pet dogs.

0:01:54.000,0:01:57.000
Women: Buy these 2 dogs. They are Shih Tzu.

0:01:58.000,0:02:02.000
Dog trader: What do I do with these tiny ones?
Women: I don’t know. You can butcher them.

0:02:03.000,0:02:08.000
Dog trader: Are they free or do you want money for them?
Women: Of course, you need to pay me.

0:02:09.000,0:02:14.000
Dog trader: How much?
Women: I don’t know. I will take whatever you offer. Haha….

0:02:15.000,0:02:20.000
Auction market is where the dogs sold to the dog traders like these are sold.

0:02:21.000,0:02:28.000
“Meat Dog” Auction Market.
In the early morning, this market is crowded with dog traders trying to sell their dogs and the middleman.

0:02:29.000,0:02:34.000
In this location, dog auction was taking place every morning for 2 hours.

0:02:35.000,0:02:42.000
After selecting the dogs you want and negotiation, dogs are weighed on scale to finalize on the price.

0:02:43.000,0:02:46.000
Metal cages are full of dogs, crumpled.

0:02:47.000,0:02:50.000
Among them are dogs presumed to be former pets.

0:02:51.000,0:02:54.000
New born puppies are also traded here.

0:02:55.000,0:02:59.000
Among the dogs sold off at auction, we notice a Dalmatian.

0:03:00.000,0:03:04.000
Undercover: Is this a Dalmatian?
Dog buyer: Yes. It’s a Dalmatian.

0:03:05.000,0:03:11.000
Undercover: How are they used?
Dog trader: These are all meat dogs. No one buys dogs here to raise as pet.

0:03:12.000,0:03:16.000
On another truck, there are Cocker Spaniels in the cage.

0:03:17.000,0:03:22.000
Undercover: Aren’t they pedigrees?
Dog trader: So what if they are pedigrees? That’s doesn’t matter here.

0:03:23.000,0:03:31.000
Undercover: Where do you sell them to?
Dog trader: Of course to the dog meat restaurants.

0:03:35.000,0:03:40.000
How do former pets end up in these meat dog auction markets?

0:03:41.000,0:03:44.000
We asked the dog trader.

0:03:45.000,0:03:50.000
People abandon pet dogs on the streets when they get sick.

0:03:51.000,0:03:57.000
These abandoned dogs ends up in dog meat market. No one raises pet dogs to eat.

0:03:58.000,0:04:09.000
Debating whether to eat these abandoned former pets that were like part of a family is a contradiction.
