Sister Province Campaign – Gyeonggi Province, South Korea – British Columbia, Canada

British Columbia Premier John Horgan: Tell your Sister Province, Gyeonggi Province, 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.

Gyeonggi-do Governor Lee Jae-Myung

Gyeonggi Province became a Sister Province with British Columbia, Canada, in 2008.

In Gyeonggi province, 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, 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 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 Gyeonggi Province’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 thousands of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Gyeonggi Province.

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 Gyeonggi Province 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.

    I ask you the Korean Government to shut down these illegal farms NOW. Yes illegal. You are allowing illegal to go on in your country.
    Shame on you. What does this say about you. The Government of your country. Dogs and cats were not put on this earth to be tortured and abused. They were notvput on this earth for human consumption. Those involved in the brutal killing of innocent Animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there evil act of cruelty to innocent Animals.
