Sister State Campaign – Gyeongsangbuk Province, South Korea – Ohio

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine: Tell your Sister State, Gyeongsangbuk 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.

Gyeongsangbuk Province became a Sister State with Ohio in 1984.

In Gyeongsangbuk 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 Gyeongsangbuk 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 Gyeongsangbuk 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 Gyeongsangbuk 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.

    Zuid-Korea achterlijk land op de wereldkaart, met zeer dwaze politici, hoe groot is het verschil tussen Mens & Dier,
    ik eet niets dierlijks, nooit, ik ben meer dan veertig jaar Veganist, nooit ziek, wel inwendige stress, & hoe zou dat komen he?
