Sister City Campaign – Seoul Gangnam District, South Korea – Budapest District V, Hungary

Budapest District V Mayor Péter Szentgyörgyvölgyi: Tell Sister City, Seoul Gangnam District, South Korea, that you are 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.

Seoul Gangnam-gu Mayor Jeong Sun-Gyun

Seoul Gangnam District became a Sister city with Budapest District V, Hungary, on November 23, 2021.

Culture, art, high-end shops, first-class hotels and fashionable streets – all can be found within Gangnam District in the ‘City of Korean Cultural Center and Global Advancement” regrettably, so can the dog meat restaurants and so-called ‘health-food centers,’ places where horribly abused and brutally slaughtered dogs and cats are served up as food and drinks.

In South Korea, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets, and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging, stabbing, 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.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Seoul Gangnam District’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – 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” – resulted in many dozens of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Gangnam District.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Seoul Gangnam District to supply all of these outlets.

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