        Good! That’s what needs to happen. It can not keep going. Look. It’s not just eating man’s best friend.
        It’s all the bullshit torcher inflicted upon these animals that’s getting them un stuck! It’s bad enough that livestock gets killed for food, but to go to the extreme of inflicting pain is just fucking arrogant. The only good thing that comes with eating any animal is a full bloody gutt. You will not or ever be any better off in any way for inflicted pain before consuming it…. People, need to realise that this is all a fat ass myth and that’s it. So putting animals through immense pain for stupid theories is unforgivable.

      “Menschen”, die hilflose Hunde und Katzen so grausam, brutal, ignorant und verantwortungslos behandeln, sei es während der Züchtung, des Transportes und der unfassbaren Quälereien vor und während der Tötungen, sind keine Menschen, denn sie sind abgestumpft, grausam und brutal und nicht in der Lage, auch nur einen Funken Mitgefühl für das leidende Tier auf zu bringen. Eine große Schande für das gesamte Land und dessen Regierung, weil diese Grausamkeiten und Brutalitäten immer noch, wir befinden uns im 21.Jahrhundert, geduldet werden und teilweise sogar legal zu sein scheinen. Es ist mehr, als überfällig, dass die koreanische Regierung endlich per Gesetz hart durchgreift und die Gräuel Taten beendet. Eine Schande für ein zivilisiertes Land!

    It here is a difference between domesticated animals that show loyalty and love and farm animals,, that is the reason that we are told never to name an animal unless you want yo keep it, because there is an emotional attachment

    For thousands of years man has bred dogs to be man’s loyal companion. What kind of barbaric ignorant people would do this to them? I or my family will not purchase anything made in South Korea or China as in Kia, Hyundai, LG, Samsung and others as long as dogs are treated in this way. If it’s made in an evil backward dog eating country don’t buy it. There are plenty of other more civilized nations.

    Thank you for all you do to stop this cruelty. A lot of people don’t seem to get that it’s culture, not race, that dictates how people behave. In many countries around the world animals are treated in barbaric ways. Your country is just one example. If only more people in Western nations would be as active as you people are, but most simply write racist comments without doing anything to stop animal abuse in their own country. Thanks again for all you do.

    Shut down all dog and cat meat production in South Korea! The people who are doing this can’t be decent and honorable people. There is no good excuse for anyone to torture any living being. It seems like the only thing that will work is for the world to totally boycott South Korea – boycott their goods, boycott their companies, boycott their diplomats, boycott travel to South Korea, and any other way to boycott them. We should also boycott any US company that is based there or does business with South Korea. They don’t care about the animals, but they do care about their money. Momentum to stop the dog and cat meat trade is growing and it will become overwhelming, forcing South Korea to stop this barbaric practice! The US should pull its military troops and support out of South Korea until this abomination ends. South Korea and other countries who engage in this horrific trade (Vietnam, China, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand, and others) need to step up and change their ways.
