Sister City Campaign – Daegu, South Korea – Milan, Italy
Mayor Giuseppe Sala of Milan: Tell Sister City, Daegu, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.
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.
Daegu became sister city with Milan in 2015.
Yet Daegu, South Korea is responsible for the ongoing horrendous torture and killing of dogs and cats.
In South Korea, the home of global companies such as Hyundai/Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK, POSCO,…, an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry. And one of the largest markets in South Korea that sells dogs dead and alive for meat is the infamous “Chilseong Market” in Daegu Metropolitan City. If you have ever wondered what a hell would be like, click HERE to see photos from the Daegu Chilseong Dog Meat Market or click HERE to see undercover video from Daegu dog farms/slaughterhouses.
Daegu Chilseong Market is a “Hell on Earth” with defenseless man’s best friends in cages after cages waiting for the heartless customers to order them to be slaughtered on the spot by electrocution, hanging, beating,…and thrown into boiling water sometimes while they are still alive. Dogs are being killed in full view of other dogs terrified in cages, in public and in broad daylight.
A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Daegu’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 Centers” 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: 479 Health Food Centers; and 95 restaurants in and around the city of Daegu alone.
If every one of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, it is too awful to think how many dog/cat farms and slaughterhouses must be present in and around Daegu to supply all of these outlets – and those that might appear under a different ‘search’.
There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

Suggested message to the Mayor of Milan – In Italian
OGGETTO: Gemellaggio tra la Città di Milano e la Città di Daegu. Richiesta di intervento per vietare il cruente e illegale mercato della carne di cane e di gatto a Daegu.
La invitiamo a guardare questa ripresa a telecamere nascoste nell’allevamento/macello di cani a Daegu https://youtu.be/qdSnXw1sukQ
La città di Milano non dovrebbe stipulare accordi di cooperazione con nessuna città che permetta la tortura e il consumo di cani e gatti. E’ necessario far sì che il Sindaco di Daegu, Young-Jin Kwon, chiuda definitivamente il “Chilseong Market” ovvero, il mercato della carne di cane in Daegu (in questo sito può trovare materiale in merito http://mogsaway.blogspot.it/2011/08/dogs-of-chilseong.html, nonchè tutti gli allevamenti e i macelli illegali, i mercati, i trasporti e i ristoranti che commerciano questo genere di prodotti.
E’ disponibile online una petizione che chiede il Suo sostegno per porre fine all’orribile mercato della carne di cane e di gatto in Daegu: https://www.change.org/p/giuseppe-sala-tell-sister-city-daegu-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-torture-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
Attendiamo cortesemente una Sua risposta.
Grazie per l’attenzione in merito, cordialmente.
Suggested message to the Mayor of Milan
Dear Mayor Giuseppe Sala and the City Council members:
Please watch this undercover video from the Daegu’s dog meat farms and slaughterhouses: https://youtu.be/qdSnXw1sukQ
Milan should not be a sister city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten. Please urge Daegu Mayor Young-Jin Kwon to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products. An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/giuseppe-sala-tell-sister-city-daegu-korea-that-we-re-opposed-to-torture-consumption-of-dogs-and-cats
