South Koreans protest urging the Korean government to pass legislation that ends the dog meat trade!

On December 30, 2020, ten members of Korea’s National Assembly, led by Congresswoman Han Jeong-Ae of the Democratic (Minjoo) Party (also newly appointed Minister of Environment), proposed a revision to the Animal Protection Act that would outlaw the slaughtering and sale of dogs and cats for meat. Bill Number 2107035 proposes a 5-year grace period. 👉 Click HERE to learn more.

The Korea Times reported on March 10, 2021, “The dog meat saga is expected to enter a new phase soon as lawmakers began pondering this week whether to ban the tradition by revising the country’s Animal Protection Act. The revision was proposed late last year. While discussions over the revision were underway at the National Assembly, dog meat supporters and opponents clashed in front of the country’s Ministry of Food and Drug Safety on Mar. 9. Protesters opposing the consumption of dog meat set up tents four months ago in front of the ministry in Cheongju, North Chungcheong Province, and have been sleeping there as they call for a ban on the distribution of dog meat for consumption. The protesters said they represent the voices of Korea’s 15 million pet owners. Days ago, those who support the practice started protesting right next to the anti-dog meat group. Tensions escalated as protesters on opposing sides began shouting at each other using harsh language and pointing fingers. Police were there to prevent physical clashes as both groups plan to continue demonstrating throughout this week.”
