[Breaking News] Animal Protection Act Amendment Passes the National Assembly Standing Committee.
Feb 26, 2017 — On February 23, News 1 in Korea reported that the amendment to the Animal Protection Act, which includes strengthening the punishment for animal abuse to a 2-year prison term, has passed the Standing Committee of the National Assembly.
This is a great victory for the animal rights activists in Korea and abroad who have been campaigning on behalf of Korean animals for many years. While this does not end the dog and cat meat trade, which is what we desperately want, it’s definitely proof that the Korean government is starting to feel the heat. It’s both a step in the right direction and encouragement for us to work that much harder. So let’s keep up our campaign to bring an end to the dog and cat meat trade!
