Yongin Giheung-gu, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants.

Yongin Giheung-gu Mayor Lee Jeong-Pyo

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 Yongin Giheung-gu District, 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 Yongin Giheung-gu’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: 39 Health Food Shops; and 28 dog meat restaurants in the vicinity of Yongin Giheung-gu.

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 Yongin Giheung-gu 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.

    As the Korean Government you should use your Power to stop this cruelty to animals they deserve to be treated with kindness and Respect there lives matter too. What are you teaching your children and future generations. Cats and dogs are domesticated and in all other countries they bring pleasure to people company and part of people’s families. Stop this cruelty to animals Now. Prosecute those that are involved in the brutal murder of defenceless animals. This has to stop NOW.
