South Korea will host its annual dog meat-eating festival commonly known as “Bok Day”, “Bok Days” or the Malbok Festival. The festival normally begins on July 13th or July 21st, and runs into early August (considered the hottest days of the year within the country.)

THOUSANDS & THOUSANDS OF ANIMALS WILL BE KILLED MERCILESSLY FOR THIS FESTIVAL.

General description:

The event is hosted on the first “Cho Bok” first summer continuing through to “Joong Bok”, mid-summer, on the 28th, and “Mal Bok”, end of summer, on August 7th, lasting 21 days. It’s during this event that South Korean dog and cat meat markets will begin a mass slaughter of dogs and cats. One particularly commonly killed dog is the “Noo-rung-yee” or commonly known as the “Nureongi” a yellowish traditional dog breed that has been bred to specifications over time within East Asia. 

To date, and like the Yulin festival, there remains no factual estimates from governmental research or observation counts to place an exact number to how many dogs or cats are killed during the twenty-one day event. Some critics have placed the number of “dogs” killed during the entire “Bok Day – dog meat-eating days” at ONE MILLIONThis is a cruel and barbaric festival.
