South Korea: Stop the brutal torture of dogs and dog meat consumption

The petition to stop the brutal torture of dogs and dog meat consumption in South Korea. Over 2 million dogs are brutally killed in South Korea every year. That's over 5,000 dogs a day who get strangled, burned, electrocuted or beaten to death for their meat.

The South Korean government has accepted Animal Protection Laws which make animal torture illegal, but those laws have never been properly enforced in the country. The dog meat industry continues to thrive and the officials are reluctant and indifferent to ban it. Oh, sorry, except during the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 2002 FIFA Cup when dog meat restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily in fear of bad impressions of South Korea. Although forbidden to advertise themselves on main streets or in English, over 6,000 restaurants today serve dog meat in South Korea. And they don't get closed down. You can help us change the life of millions of dogs. International support against dog torture and dog meat consumption is the only way to put pressure on the South Korean government to protect animal rights for real and ban the dog meat industry in all forms.

      Until the laws are changed regarding inhumane treatment of animals, I will encourage everyone I know to boycott trade with you. This is disgusting, base, inhumane behavior, and needs to be stopped immediately.
