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

Yeoju Neungseo-myeon Director Kim Yong-Su

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.

    Thanks for working to try and stop this terribly cruelty to dogs. I have been trying to work my way through submitting petitions. I had no idea that this was so incredibly widespread in South Korea. I have signed the petitions also. I have not had as much luck with sending emails. I think that they get blocked either my end or theirs, maybe due to the number of recipients, as it may be mistakenly classed as spam? I will carry on with submitting petitions though.
