WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO: Burning Dog Sparks Public Outcry In South Korea

Comments Off on WARNING GRAPHIC VIDEO: Burning Dog Sparks Public Outcry In South Korea

“I know what I would like to do to the f-ing bastards that set the dog alight…the most horrifying fact is; it could well have been children! It has & will continue to happen until changes are made & animal abuse is seen as a serious crime; which merits serious punishment!!”

“I know for a fact there are people or kids out there, that know who did this; along with the thousands of others keeping schtum about similar animal abuse cases. Children are only interested in the here & now…they either don’t want to, or are bullied into not wanting to grass their mates up! They have no idea, nor can they relate to the repercussion, that first “act of animal abuse” can lead to.”

” I think kids should be taught about the “The link between animal abuse & serial killers etc” within the school environment. When problems escalate from children abusing animals etc.; then it’s children that need to know why animal abuse, of any kind is wrong & what the ramifications of committing such a crime…can lead to!” 

A South Korean animal rights group offered a $2,800 dollar reward to catch those responsible for setting a dog on fire in an incident that triggered a public outcry.

CCTV footage of the dog running through a car park while engulfed in flames was shown on national TV news channels and prompted angry discussions on social network sites.

The dog ran into a garage and triggered a fire which gutted the structure in Yongin, a city south of Seoul, on Sunday.

The group Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth offered a three million won ($2,813) reward for information leading to the arrest of those behind the incident.

Whatever they tried to do, whether to kill, eat or abuse the dog, this cannot be tolerated for any reason,” the group said.

Dog meat is a traditional delicacy in South Korea, but growing numbers of Koreans oppose the practice and consider it an international embarrassment.

‘Happened …’ Burned to the car repair shop caught fire jumped

Published on 22 Jan 2013

Auto body shop a few days ago (20 days) in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province, a fire did occur. Somehow the cause of the fire was this dog. JTBC affiliate reporter Kim, Youn – Tae Central Daily reported.

There is a petitions on Causes.com for people to join & sign, regards this dog & other dogs that are treated in such heinous crimes…this has to stop!…Please sign & join the cause below”

PETITION: South Korea! Stop Burning Dogs Alive!

Some of the text from the Cause:-

However, this is not an isolated case in South Korea.  Dogs are burned alive in South Korea everyday. 

“Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. 

They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched.  At Moran Market, South Korea’s largest open air-market for dog meat, dog carcasses are on display next to the cages of live dogs.

 Cats are often bludgeoned and thrown into boiling water while still alive.”  Frightening and horrific cruelty to man’s best friends is endemic and systematic in South Korean society.

These unprecedented cruelty towards animals can no longer be tolerated and it is our moral duty to urge South Korean government to respect and enforce not just its own but the Global Animal Protection Laws.

 Each year 2 million dogs and thousands of cats are brutally killed and eaten.  These helpless animals are forced to endure unspeakable suffering,  deprivation and torture from birth to death.  Abandoned pets end up as meat as well.

 We oppose this on ethical, health, environmental and moral grounds.  It is unconscionable for the South Korean Government to ignore the huge growing shock and outcry on social media sites all over the world.

Dogs Stuffed Into Cage Ready for Meat Market – Caught on Video

Comments Off on Dogs Stuffed Into Cage Ready for Meat Market – Caught on Video

“Stray dogs, corralled & stuffed into a wire cage on the back of a moped, destined for restaurants, along the Mekong River, Vietnam. I am posting this video to raise public awareness to the cruelty of the dog meat trade.  Please sign the petition below”.

I don’t recommend that you watch this. I post such a horrendous thing mostly because it seems that animal rights people use this video. These dogs have been captured by a dog catcher by trade and are on their way to various Vietnamese restaurants near the Mekong River. When I saw this, all kinds of ideas went through my mind as far as what was the best course of action to take and the best I got was this video. The glimpse you see of the dog catcher’s face was the only glimpse he ever gave any of the disgusted onlookers. For people visiting Vietnam, I recommend that you do not eat the goat meat (no goats.) If you eat the dog meat, you will be supporting this type of business, so also don’t order it just to try it. It’s not good and tastes exactly like a wet dog smells. I spit mine out upon realizing what I was eating.

“Please join IDA and our South Korean colleagues by signing this petition urging the South Korean government to strengthen and enforce animal protection laws so that these cruelties can be brought to an end!”

Write your emails here about this disgusting trade

http://english.president.go.kr/common/email.php

Only 10% of the pet dogs live to their full life in S. Korea. Remaining 90% are either abandoned or sold to the dog meat traders or to “Gae Soju” (means “Dog Elixir”) places.
Shocking and shameful statistics!
Another lie of the dog meat industry that they only slaughter dogs that are raised in farms as meat. As this TV program exposes all dogs are eaten in S. Korea. Meat dogs, pet dogs, old dogs, sick dogs, puppies,… As we all know dogs are dogs. Just because they are raised as meat doesn’t mean that they are less intelligent or they will suffer less.

As long as the S. Korean government allows this barbaric and cruel practice, the high rate of abandonment of pet dogs will continue and the gruesome dog meat industry will thrive.

You can make a difference. Please sign the petitions below and tell the S. Korean government that we are outraged about this horrific injustice to the man’s best friends and we demand that they ban this practice once and for all.

Korean Government Will End Bear Farming

Comments Off on Korean Government Will End Bear Farming

WSPA welcomes the news shared by our partner organization, Green Korea United (GKU), that the Korean National Assembly has demonstrated political will to end the cruel bear faming practice.

The Budget Committee of the National Assembly recently voted through a proposal to “prepare measures to end the practice of bear farming through investigation of the current status of bear farming and its management plan.” The approval of this proposal means that the government has cleared a budget of 200 Million Korean Won ($175,000 USD) to ascertain the current situation of bears on farms in Korea, and design ways to end the practice. The approval of this proposal is a compelling sign that the Korean government recognizes the need to end bear farming.

Without the positive action being initiated by the South Korean government, thousands of bears could be born into lives of untold suffering,” added Emily Reeves, Director of Programs for WSPA Asia Pacific. “Once this process is complete and bear farming ended in South Korea, the country would be setting a great example for those other countries in Asia where, unfortunately, this cruel practice is still tolerated by governments.”

South Korea’s Cruel and Gruesome Dog Meat Industry – “Two faces of Traditional Markets”

Comments Off on South Korea’s Cruel and Gruesome Dog Meat Industry – “Two faces of Traditional Markets”

Moran Market (Traditional Outdoor Market) in Seongnam-city, Kyunggido-province, South Korea. This video exposes the horrific reality of dogs and cats being sacrificed as meat by double standard that categorize some dogs as meat dogs and some dogs as pet dogs.

Whether a captured stray or a farmed dog, many marketplace slaughter methods are deliberately designed to intensify and prolong the animal’s suffering. This is the result of a misguided belief that torturing a dog prior to death results in better tasting, adrenaline-rich meat.

Killing methods include clubbing to death, throat-slitting, hanging by the neck and electrocution

Read the following:- Korea Animal Welfare Association (formerly Animal Freedom Korea) Korean Dog Meat Report 2008; http://www.wspa-international.org/Images/Korean%20Dogs%20for%20Meat%20Investigation%20Report%20Final%202008_tcm25-21893.pdf#false

If like me you are disgusted at the thought of eating sentient beings we class as pets;  Please sign the petition to stop it:-http://www.uniteddogs.com/stopkillingdogs/

There are lots of petitions to sign on Change.org:- http://www.change.org/petitions#search/korean dog meat

Little has changed over the years regarding the dog meat industry in Korea. The selling and processing of dog meat is still technically illegal. The situation could be summed up with this paradox: it is illegal to produce and consume dog meat but it is not against the law.Debate continues on its legalization but an impasse remains at the moment between the Korean government and animal welfare groups, meaning that everything continues on now as it has done in the past
