Sister City Campaign – Daegu, South Korea – Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Campaign updated on 3/9/2023.

Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson: Tell Sister City, Daegu, South Korea, that you oppose 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 a Sister city to Milwaukee on August 23, 2017.

In Daegu, there are numerous dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who have been tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging, or beating, and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry and are subject to the same cruelty. If you have ever wondered what the hell would be like, click HERE and HERE to learn more about Daegu’s dog meat industry.

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 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 dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Daegu. Even if half of these ‘Health’ Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be in the vicinity of Daegu to supply these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    This dog meat trading is horrendous cruelty. In a nation fully modernized and sending its components worldwide surely this cruel stigma on the nation’s character will eventually become a stumbling block against trade with the west.
