Stop Killing Dogs

Over 2 million dogs are brutally killed in South Korea every year.
That’s over 5,000 dogs a day who get strangled, burned, electrocuted or beaten to death for their meat.
The South Korean government has accepted Animal Protection Laws which make animal torture illegal, but those laws have never been properly enforced in the country. The dog meat industry continues to thrive and the officials are reluctant and indifferent to ban it. Oh, sorry, except during the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 2002 FIFA Cup when dog meat restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily in fear of bad impressions of South Korea.

Although forbidden to advertise themselves on main streets or in English, over 6,000 restaurants today serve dog meat in South Korea. And they don’t get closed down.
You can make a deference by signing a petition in the bellow link

    You’re all being overly emotional and unfair. A dog and a pig are both beautiful, intelligent creatures. Just because your western culture views some animals as meat and others as domestic companions, does not give you the right to push your views on others.

    I don’t agree with this practice, instead I think pressure should be placed for the animals to be humanely killed and proper regulations enforced.

    All westerners just somehow expect the rest of the world to be xenocentric.

    I am a Westerner & regularly travel to many Asian countries. I am against ALL inhumane housing & inhumane killing of ANY animal = including sow pens for pigs. This is not just a ‘dog’ issue; this is about humane treatment. I understand different cultures have different ways of seeing things, but ALL cultures understand what IS humane and what is NOT humane. It is a choice = PLEASE act responsibly !!! Stop inhumane cruelty.

    It is really shocking to know that dogs are killed to satisfy human appetite.Dogs are loveable pets and faithful to mankind.The people who kill them just for the taste to their palate r really heronious and I must say they are worst than wild carnivorous animals.Pets are friends and seek love from their owners and in return they also show their love.
    I request those people who kill and eat meat of dogs to stop such practice as there are numerous kind of foods available in this world.

    The people who let out such kind of behavior and treatment on living beings who can’t speak, cry or complaint should be meted out with more severe and brutal treatment. Then only will they realise the adversity and severity of the sins they commit upon such harmless and tender beings.

    I have recently become a vegetarian so I obviously disagre with dogs being eaten and to the cruel way in which they are treated. However, I can’t understand people who wish to sign this petition purely on the basis that it’s not right to eat dogs. Pigs are(in as far as one can compare such levels in terms of pig:human or pig:pig or pig:any other animal) just as intelligent creatures, yet pig slaughtering which (don’t fool yourslf) uses methods that would probably turn the stomach of one of the afore mentioned petitioners is overlooked because a dog is more ‘cuddley’. Having grown up near a farm I can also attest to the fact that they are equally as loyal.
    The same can be said about the intelligence of many other creatures including many species of Cephalopoda (octopus) yet one would rarely see such a petition in the case of the latter,

    If you don’t see anything wrong with eating meat in general(and let me be clear, I’m not here to argue against eating meat right now) then I feel a petition to stop the cruelty and poor conditions to which these animals are subjected would be more suitable. It just doesn’t make sense to say ‘don’t eat dog; there are other kinds of meat you can eat’ since it is purely for cultural reasons that you abhor such a practise.

    Either way, well done bringing this terrible practise to the attention of so many.

    This is so f’ing wrong … pics like this disturb me. I’m out here trying to save animals, feed, spay, neuter and find homes for them and seeing this ticks me off!

    In my world, death penalty for animal cruelty. Forget the 3yrs max and 100k fine. You break a leg, you lose your leg, you strangle a dog, you get strangled, you eat a dog, you get fed to a lion … get the pic.

    I couldn’t eat dog, cat or any animal considered a pet, even if forced. Animals, even the ones we utilize as food, deserve to live a happy life and be slaughtered humanely. Even baby calves are ill treated … they live in want of their mothers, in a box they can’t turn around in, just pure fear and loneliness, fear coursing through their system turns to poison … then you eat it … people are sick mentally … the payback is the disease that eventually befalls you.

    Do these people not understand that animals feel pain in the same way that humans do. How hard is it to treat animals humanley. There need to be welfare laws so people know it is not exceptable to cause any unecessary suffering. I boycott all products made in china and korea as a protest for the way they treat animals. If the rest of the world stop buying goods produced in these countries they might get the message that nobody likes animal torturers!

    I have been signing petitions for almost 30 yrs to “stop” the killing of dogs and cats in Korea (and China) – I don’t see any point in signing anymore.

    However, I have stopped BUYING ANYTHING from either of these countries and I highly recommend that all of you do the same!!!!!!!!

    THIRTY YEARS and nothing CAN be done to stop this abuse – they don’t give a rat’s ass about what we think, but they will when NO ONE BUYS THEIR PRODUCTS ANYMORE!!!
    Their economy DEPENDS on Global support and if they don’t have that anymore, then maybe we can get their attention…

    Horrifying. This needs to stop! It seems the only way this will stop is if humans get a dose of their own medicine and see how it feels to drug by their legs, hanged, burned, beaten, electrocuted, skinned alive, drowned, etc.

    Please explain how SIGNING A PETITION can do anything about something happening in Korea. Really. If you are in another country other than Korea, A PETITION HAS ABSOLUTELY NO POWER TO DO ANYTHING. Even if you are a Korean citizen, petitions are just paper with writing on it – they do NOTHING. Period. Quit wasting your time signing silly made up things on the internet. Get real and take responsibility for issues in your own community, state and country.
