Yeoju Daeshin-myeon, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants

Yeoju Daeshin-myeon Director Yeon Soon-Heum

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.

In Yeoju, 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 subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Yeoju’s dog meat demand.

Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” 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”.

The searches resulted in: 92 Health Food Shops; and 72 restaurants in the vicinity of Yeoju.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in the vicinity of Yeoju in order 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.

Cats and dogs are domesticated and they bring pleasure to people and they are treated with kindness and Respect there lives matter too. All around the World people treat Dogs and Cats as there pets at home these Animals bring joy and happiness to families World wide. What you are allowing to happen in your Country is illegal and you have to stop this now. Those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to innocent Animals. What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable. Cats and dogs should not be used for for human consumption. It is wrong and cruel. Shame on you the Korean Government for allowing this to continue. You are weak and pathetic you the Korean Government do not have the strength and power.
