Sister State Campaign – Gangwon Province, South Korea – Colorado

Colorado Governor Jared Polis: Tell your Sister State, Gangwon 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.

Gangwon Province became a Sister State with Colorado in 1991.

In Gangwon 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 Gangwon 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 hundreds of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in Gangwon 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 Gangwon Province to supply these outlets.

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

    Das Land Südkorea ist für Hunde und Katzen die Hölle auf Erden und die Menschen des Landes ihre Teufel. Es ist unfassbar, dass es im 21.Jahrhundert noch ein Land(Länder) gibt, in denen hilflose Mitgeschöpfe derartige Folter über sich ergehen lassen müssen und das alles nur, weil es immer noch Menschen gibt, die einer uralten (grausamen, brutalen und verantwortungslosen) Überlieferung Glauben schenken. Hier ist es längst überfällig, dass die Südkoreanische Regierung endlich aus dem Tiefschlaf aufwacht, ihre ignorante Haltung aufgibt und gesetzlich tätig wird, in dem sie gegen die mafiösen Strukturen dieses Landes hart vorgeht. Eine Schande, wie sie n icht größer sein könnte.!
