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

Yeoju Ganam-eup Director Kang Dae-Joon

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.

    It is barbaric and disgusting what you are allowing to happen in your Country. You the Korean Government are allowing this illegal act to continue in your Country. Cats and dogs should not be used for for human consumption. It is illegal and you are corrupt to allow this brutality and torture to innocent Animals to still go on in your Country.
    What are you teaching your children and future generations that this unnecceary killing of innocent animals is acceptable.
    Act now as you the Korean Government have the power to end this NOW.
    Those that kill these poor helpless Animals should be prosecuted and imprisoned for there act of cruelty to animals.

    Please please can you stop this practice of torture and killing and eating. cats and dogs? I realize that this is a common and old practice in your country but it is 2021 and the times have changed and feelings towards these sweet and precious animals are so different now. We know that they have feelings and they can love and care about us if we are kind to them. And you see now that eating them would be like eating a member of your family because that’s what they become.
    I have cats and dogs and they are my babies and I would die before I would ever think of eating one of them. This is a. thing that has to stop. These poor , precious animals know what is going to happen to them and I don’t know how you can do it but it is time to stop now. Thank you.
