Over 8 million animals have been killed so far and more will be killed in South Korea, as part of the culling operations due to an outbreak of foot and mouth disease (FMD). The government started vaccinating animals only recently, but the use of vaccines has been limited. To slow down the outbreak, the government decided to also cull healthy animals within the danger zones. The Korea Animal Rights Advocates (KARA) has strongly advocated for the government to stop the massacre.
