3.  We condemn the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs for their inability to propose proper legislation (without loopholes) on the issue of the feeding of food waste to animals.  https://koreandogs.org/ban-feeding-food-waste-to-all-animals/

Not only does the South Korean Government neglect to enforce their animal welfare laws by continuing to allow the appalling and blatantly cruel dog meat trade, but Government Departments, such as the Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Food and Drug Safety and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, fail to properly monitor the food waste disposal business, being carried out as a lucrative side-line to dog meat production – and thereby ensuring continuation of these trades.

Food waste is so named as it is just that - waste: filthy slops, which, left untreated, can harbour salmonella and other contaminants, able to cause health hazards on epidemic scale. Such waste must be recycled or disposed of responsibly, yet dog-meat farmers were easily granted licences to recycle food waste as a business, without any proper checks being made by Government Departments to ensure that these ‘businesses’ were capable (or willing) to recycle this waste in an acceptable and legal way; their disposal method: feed it untreated to their dogs, or sell it on to other meat-producing farmers.

The Korean Government must step up and take responsibility, the Moon Jae-In Administration must keep its promise to survey the dog meat farms throughout the country, and act on illegal practices – it must bring about change.
