Korean Air: Help us to end the abhorrent cruelty and suffering of cats and dogs in your country!

To the Korean Air Group, 

Korean Air is a leading airline, which recognises that their advancement “would not have been achievable without the support and encouragement” of its customers.  Therefore, it stands to reason that it is of great importance that these same customers, and many prospective ones, will continue to retain a positive image of your company. 

Equally important must be the positive image of your country, South Korea, which will be hosting the 2018 Winter Olympics, in Pyeongchang - an event which your own Chairman and CEO, Mr Yang Ho Cho, has significant personal involvement in. 

However, across the globe, people are stating that they will not buy Korean goods or use Korean services, because of the shocking and brutal practices that are routinely being carried out within all parts of Korea’s abhorrent dog and cat meat trades. 

Internationally, these billion dollar trades - and their associated cruelty - have become common knowledge; this does nothing to further Mr Cho’s Vision of “Korea’s progressive reputation around the world”. 

South Korea is the only country in the world which commercially farms dogs for consumption.  Each year, many millions of animals are being bred and raised in large and ‘backyard’ farms all over your country; and they are kept with absolutely no regard for any animal welfare: in cramped, filthy, barren cages, exposed to all elements - living with unending fear and pain. 

Finally, after all of this suffering, and because of ignorant Korean beliefs, these animals are condemned to hideous deaths by horrendous and deliberately prolonged methods of slaughter: inhumane and brutal methods, which are unnecessary, unacceptable, and illegal. 

Mr Cho states that his “dedication and leadership extends beyond business to education”; these ignorant Korean beliefs can be changed, and these brutal methods can be stopped completely through this vital education. 

And, despite continuous pleas, even from dedicated citizens within your own country, your Government does nothing to end this animal abuse - or even to monitor or enforce its own laws.  This is not the action of a 21stCentury, major economic world power, with a leading education system; this is not the action of a civilized nation.  This is a shameful denial of immoral behaviour that is rife within their society. 

Korean Air, you must carry on the dedicated commitment to the “advancement of the Korean People” shown by the late Mr Choong Hoon Cho, the Founder of your Company, by helping to bring an end to this suffering and cruelty.  You must stand up for what is right: we implore you to urge your government to act now by strengthening and enforcing its animal protection laws, and by permanently banning the consumption of dog and cat meat.
