PLEASE URGENTLY CREATE NEW ANIMAL WELFARE AND PROTECTION LAWS IN SOUTH KOREA

Your Excellency President Moon Jae-in, may I start by warmly congratulating you on your outstanding victory in becoming President of South Korea.

Everyone is very happy that you were successful in becoming President because we all know that you are a very compassionate Christian man and a strong animal-lover!

It is because of this that I am pleading with you to urgently follow the shining example of Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen, and show your greatness in creating NEW ANIMAL WELFARE AND PROTECTION LAWS in South Korea, and starting by de-classifying dogs and cats as livestock, in order to permanently end the horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade in your country, and imposing stiff penalties to those who ignore the new laws.

The Boknal Festival is planned to take place again soon in August 2017, when thousands more innocent victims will again be sadistically tortured and murdered!

Also involved in this trade are numerous crude slaughter-houses, breeding farms, markets, so-called "health food shops" who sell the elixirs, and many restaurants who serve the meat.

Dogs and cats are gentle sentient beings and should be treated as such.

I ask you to remember a famous quotation by Mahatma Gandhi "The greatness and moral progress of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated".

If you make these important changes, this will reflect favourably on yourself and your country.

The world is watching and waiting with baited breath for you to be a great President and take urgent and decisive action for the millions of victims of this trade every year.

Thank you from the rest of the world!

FOOTNOTE TO SUPPORTERS! I know only too well that peoples' feelings are running very high (as are mine) on this highly immotive subject.  But can we please remember that this petition is going to the newly elected President of South Korea to ask for his urgent help in ending this terrible trade. Because he has only just been elected on 10th May, he hasn't yet had time to do anything about it. Can we please keep all our comments posted on here to be respectful, remembering that President Moon Jae-in is indeed the Presidential Head of his country. And abusive and/or aggressive comments won't help our cause! Thank you!

Janice
