Please watch this video:

A dog butcher in Tongyeong, South Korea is daily bludgeoning dogs to death in front of other terrified dogs and the local government authority is doing nothing about it. This video is not a replay of same clip over and over. Each of these were recorded at different times. This psychopath criminal has 40 to 50 dogs in his farm and the dogs are killed in this horrific way. This is a violation of the Animal Protection Act. We want the city of Tongyeong to punish this criminal and shut down the hellhole dog farm/slaughterhouse immediately. Please sign and share!

Below is the translation of Korea Animal Welfare Association (KAWA)'s post: 

The sounds of dogs being slaughtered echo loud and far at this small village in Tongyeong, South Korea.

On the 29th of July, we received a tip from an informant.

The informant first reported animal abuse to the police with the CCTV video from his house dated July 26 and he sent us a copy of the video.

Even though the local residents have complained about this numerous times, the local government has not taken any action, so the informant contacted us to ask what else he could do about it.

After watching the video and the photos we were shocked and appalled.

This dog butcher is said to own about 40 to 50 dogs. He bludgeons these dogs to death with a club in front of the other dogs, and then he drags them around. People in the whole village hear the cries of the dogs as they’re being bludgeoned to death.

Local residents complain that they shudder in horror and emotionally tormented.

There are several videos of dogs being slaughtered that have been uploaded. These are not the same video, they are different videos taken at different times.

There is no progress at the National Assembly regarding the proposed amendment to the Animal Protection Act that prohibits discretionary slaughtering of animals. This amendment must be passed in order to reduce and eliminate the illegal and cruel slaughter of animals.

Although this proposed amendment has not been passed, the dog butcher in this video is still in violation of Article 8 (1) of the Animal Protection Act, which prohibits “killing an animal with animals of the same kind present at the scene.”

Korea Animal Welfare Association (KAWA) will continue to monitor this dog slaughterhouse.  We ask that you show your continued interest in and support of this case so the local government will take appropriate measures.

몽둥이로 개잡는 소리가 울려 퍼지는 통영시의 작은 동네

지난 29일 동물자유연대로 제보가 들어왔습니다.

제보자가 먼저 26일 날에 본인 집 CCTV에 찍힌 영상을 가지고 경찰에 동물 학대로 고발을 한 후에 저희 쪽으로도 보내준 것이었습니다.

주민들이 계속해서 민원을 제기하여도 관할 지자체가 단속을 나오지 않고, 별다른 조치가 없어서 추가적으로 어떻게 대응해야 할지 문의차 제보를 해주신 것이었습니다.

영상과 사진을 확인한 활동가들은 경악을 금치 못했습니다.

이 개 농장 주는 주변에 40-50마리의 개를 키우면서 도살을 한다고 합니다.

다른 개들이 보는 앞에서 개를 몽둥이로 때려죽이고 끌고 다니며, 그럴 때면 온 동네에 개의 울부짖는 소리가 울린다고 합니다. 동네 주민들은 소름이 끼치고 정신적으로 힘들다고 호소합니다.

함께 올린 영상 속 개를 도살하는 장면은 같은 영상을 반복하거나 짜깁기한 것이 아닌 다 다른 시간대의 다른 영상입니다.

국회에선 1년 내내 동물 임의 도살 법에 관해 어떤 움직임도 없습니다.

동물임의도살금지법을 통과시켜야만 더 이상 잔인하게 불법적으로 도살되고 학대당하는 동물들이 줄어들고 사라질 것입니다.

아직 동물임의도살법이 시행되고 있지 않지만, 해당 영상 속 개 도살자는 다른 동종 동물이 보는 앞에서 동물을 죽이는 행위를 저지른 명백한 동물보호법 8조 1항을 위배하였습니다.

앞으로도 동물자유연대는 지속적으로 이 개도살장을 살필 것입니다. 관심이 사그라들지 않도록, 관할 지자체가 제대로 된 조치를 취할 수 있도록, 시민분들께서도 지속적인 관심을 보여주시길 부탁드리겠습니다.
