The South Korean government continues to turn a blind eye to the horrific suffering and neglect of the dogs at this “farm”
Dogs have been neglected for a few months
As seeing them,
Each dog is a pedigree dog
How on earth have they been neglected
and uncared at this place..
Animal protection organization : There’s a body
found a cold lifeless dog body
not just one or two..!
From a little puppy that seems old
to a dog with open eyes
This place seems to be hell if it exists
Animal protection organization : I guess someone brought dogs on purpose and raised them but
suddenly couldn’t afford to raise them and just gave up caring for them
It’s been long since they’re neglected
Only dust in the food bowls
Can’t even drink a sip of water
In a sack, which should be filled with food
There’s a rat
There is nothing else to eat.
Animal protection organization : There’s another body
Next to Maltese,
There’s a dog body ripped and tore off
What’s shocking is that..
the one who harmed the body
would be a dog who’s starved
How long have they been neglected..?
Dogs can’t get in or out
in the dog cage that looks like a prison
but dogs still gladly welcome the crew..
Unlike other dogs who welcome
The two Malamute dogs are wary of the crew
After looking closely
we could find the dog’s puppy in her arms
in such a horrible scene
A new puppy was born like a miracle
We should rescue them and save their lives
But without permission of their owner
we can’t rescue the dogs
Local : Seems like a man living alone. I just heard he lives in another area
and visits here once or twice per month
PD : Once or twice per month? / Yes
Sadly, the time just passes by
Eventually, a man assumed as the dog owner appeared at the cage
PD : Excuse me, we are Kritter Klub from SBS
How did you get here?
Dog owner : Ran out of water and food, so I ordered
so that I can give them food and water
But then, the man suddenly puts a drug into a syringe
He explains that it’s nutrients and tries to put it into the dog’s mouth
PD : The vet told you to feed that? / Yes
PD : I’ll be there for a while
Decided to talk with this guy
Man : Get rid of the body first
As the crew appears,
the man hurriedly cleans up the body
Dogs are allowed to get out of the cage only after they passed away..
Dog owner : We usually feed them once a week
We used to have a man who manages here with me
But that man just told me that water isn’t running. After then, he didn’t contact me
It’s a situation that I suddenly had to undertake this
because that man got a problem while managing here
He said the man who manages dogs made this situation by improper management
So the owner didn’t know this situation
We tried to contact with the manager
Manager : Hello / Hello
Manager : In the beginning, we were committed to raising dogs for running pet stores
but it cost much more than expected
So I texted him that I can’t do this and not gonna visit there anymore
Crew : There wasn’t a problem for dogs until then?
Manager : There wasn’t a big problem for them to eat and live
The dog owner and manager have different opinions
Who is lying to us?
Oppa, a dog gave birth to two puppies..
This dog gave birth to puppies
Take them out
The owner knew that there are puppies here
He separates the little puppies
from their mother
No! Catch this dog!
The woman just ignores the mother dog who pleads to bring her puppies back
and just goes out
PD : Don’t you take them to the hospital?
Woman : No, not the hospital but I have to bring them to the house cause we can’t raise them..
Without knowing the reason
The mother dog was forced to be separated from her puppies forever
PD : Have any plans for the puppies?
Owner : I will take good care of them
Right after saying he’ll take good care of them,
the man also left the dog cage
Doesn’t he know that neglecting dogs is
also a kind of animal abuse
as terrible as beating or hurting dogs..?
Animal protection organization : There’s still no way to rescue the neglected dogs by compulsion
under the Animal Protection Laws in our nation
So we asked for the local government’s help
Local government Rep. : The problem is that the ownership belongs to the owner no matter how badly he cares for dogs
It’s not the situation that
we can force him to move them to a safe place
It’s better to get the owner’s permission and
bring dogs to your side
They said that there’s no way to help them
if we don’t get the dog owner’s permission
Uh, dogs appeared / Uh?
Dogs are gone / All of them?
Most of them are gone and just a few dogs left
While we were out,
The dogs completely disappeared
Animal Protection Organization : I think they hurriedly moved on another place or
brought only the valuable dogs for sale
Only the large dogs in good condition
Small and ill dogs
are still uncared for and
just left abandoned by the owner
We tried to contact the owner in a hurry
Animal Protection Organization: Ok, I’ll call the owner now..
The owner is out of contact
We asked around and finally found the place where the owner stays
Owner : Since I can’t raise large dogs, I sent them to a good place
We are about to bring the dogs in the cage to our house and give them a bath to raise them
Where are the puppies? / They went to heaven
Under the law
we couldn’t even protect the newborn puppies..
PD : Do you know the condition of dogs in the cage?
Owner : Well, I don’t know cause I can’t check them often
PD : Even now, there are dogs who are likely to lose their lives in that cage
Still.. This is called ‘neglect’
The owner finally came up with a conclusion after a long persuasion
I’d like to raise one of the dogs, the Afghan Hound
Afghan Hound? / Yes
Then will you let us bring other dogs? / Yes
For sure? / Yes
Except Afghan Hound? / Yes
The man says he can’t give up this Afghan Hound.
So sorry for the dog, but we have to rescue the rest of dogs at least
At the moment right before the rescue
The owner made a phone call to us
Owner : I’ll handle the problem with dogs on my own
So if you’re gonna sue me, just do whatever you want to do
The owner suddenly mentions that he can’t give us all the dogs
The dogs suffering without the help of the law
Animal Protection Organization : The reason for existing Animal Protection Law itself is to protect animals’ lives
Whether we have to just see dogs dying due to that law
or protecting dogs should be prioritized even if we violate the law
We’d like to ask about that
They have been living in such poor circumstances for a long time
so I think they should get medical check-ups and be treated for now
In the animal protection organization’s judgment
that the dogs’ lives are much more important than the law,
we decided to rescue the dogs in the cage
Thus, the dogs eventually could get out of
the cage which was like a living hell
Since that day, the rescued dogs
have fed well and adapted well
Animal Protection Organization : Since the dogs eat food well and adapted well to a new circumstance
they have much better health now
We’re trying to keep contacting the owner in order to solve this situation
As many people improve awareness about animals
We pray that all animals don’t suffer anymore…
