Sister State Campaign – Gyeongsangnam Province, South Korea – Maryland

Updated 12/5/2021.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan: Tell your Sister State, Gyeongsangnam 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.

Gyeongsangnam-do Governor Kim Kyeong-Su

Gyeongsangnam Province, South Korea, became a sister state with Maryland in 1991.

In Gyeongsangnam province, there are hundreds of 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. 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 Gyeongsangnam 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 Gyeongsangnam 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 Gyeongsangnam 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.

No matter where you live, PLEASE SHARE these actions with your friends, especially those who live in Maryland! 🙏

    End the barbaric dog and cat meat trade and slaughter in South Korea. These sensitive animals are kept in filthy cages, many piled on top of each other, before they are hauled out, beaten, tortured, electrocuted, hung, skinned alive, in front of the other dogs who are cowering terrified in their cages. This cruelty has got to stop. Dogs and cats are torched and cooked alive, in the belief that the more they suffer, the more tender their meat will be.

    Please stop this horrific abuse of animals. Shut down the illegal dog meat markets, and cruel treatment of the animals that are humans’ best friends.

    WHAT SANE AND MORAL SOCIETY WOULD ALLOW THIS? Dogs and puppies die of diseases are tossed away like garbage, left in front of cages to rot while the momma dogs watch in terror and despair. PLEASE, LET’S DO THE RIGHT THING — LET’S SHOW THE WORLD THAT DOING WHAT IS RIGHT IS ALWAYS THE BEST OPTION. Think of your children — think of the future — think of ALL children — LET’S ABOLISH AND DESTROY THESE DRACONIAN, BRUTAL FARMS — LET’S RESCUE THESE DOGS AND CATS.

    I am unable to watch these videos. I can’t get them out of my head when i do. However I sign all petitions and send all email about sister citys that are available to send. I will NOT stop. I can’t believe that this happens to animals that we raised for thousands of years to aid and help us. It makes me sick!

    We need to keep on these evil monsters that torture and kill innocent dogs and cats that this must stop. I wish there were mercenaries to go there and kill each and every butcher and that would put them all out-of-business permanently
