Please, immediately shut down the illegal dog auction house occupying the Korean Ministry of Defense property in Paju and impose heavy penalties and fines for the violations!

A “meat dog” auction house, located in Paju Geomsan-dong 9-1 area (파주시검산동 9-1 일대) has been in operation for the past two years, illegally occupying the Korean Ministry of Defense’s property.  Even though the Paju Dog Auction House was in the process of being served with an administrative order for restoration, as well as a criminal prosecution due to civil complaints that had been filed with the Paju City Hall the previous September, the owner stated that he would pay the fine and continue to operate the auction house. Before moving to this location, this dog auction house was in Namyangju, illegally occupying government land.  This is a repeated pattern of illegal occupation of government land and violation of the Animal Protection Act.

Please take action TODAY to demand immediate action by the Paju government and the Ministry of Defense to immediately shut down the illegal dog auction house and punish all the violators.

파주시 검산동 9-1 지역에 위치한 식용견 경매장은 대한민국 국방부 소유 토지를 불법 점유하여 2년간이나 영업을 해왔습니다. 많은 동물보호가와 단체가 파주시에 신고를 했음에도 아직도 영업을 지속하고 있습니다. 이들은 심지어 신고하면 집을 불태워버리겠다고 이웃들을 협박하고 있습니다. 파주로 이전하기 전 남양주에서도 정부의 땅에서 불법으로 영업장을 운영했습니다. 이들의 상습적인 정부토지 불법점유 및 동물보호법 위반에 대한 파주시의 즉각적인 대응을 요구합니다. 즉시 불법 개 경매장을 폐쇄하고, 범법자들을 구속하여 처벌할 것을 강력히 요청합니다.
