Seoul, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.

Seoul, South Korea, Shut down the illegal dog meat farms, slaughterhouses and markets.  Click here for more actions you can take:http://koreandogs.org/seoul/http://koreandogs.org/petitions-korean-cities/ In Seoul there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty. There are plentiful evidences that the illegal dog meat industry exists in Seoul. Shown below are two search results on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – the first one was for so-called “Health Food Shops” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants”. The searches resulted in: 933 Health Food Shops; and 578 restaurants in and around Seoul. https://map.naver.com/?query=%EC%84%9C%EC%9A%B8+%EA%B1%B4%EA%B0%95%EC%9B%90&type=SITE_1 https://map.naver.com/index.nhn?query=7ISc7Jq4IOuztOyLoO2DlQ&enc=b64&tab=1 Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in and around Seoul in order to supply all of these outlets. South Korea is the home to global companies, such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK and POSCO, which is why it is so shocking that an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year within South Korea, because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry; while the majority of those Koreans, who don’t actually participate in this offensive trade, show a profound indifference by doing nothing at all to stop it. We know how loyal and faithful our dogs across the world are; and we all ask a lot of them - they serve us in innumerable ways: farm work, war work, police and guard duties, search and rescue, help for the disabled, guiding and guardianship, and, of course, as our loving and trusting companions. Dogs were first domesticated many thousands of years ago, and so much do they want to be part of our ‘human’ family that they have learned to understand our gestures and our language - the language of another species, which shows remarkable willingness and intelligence. Please watch this undercover video by animal rights activists in South Korea: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for human consumption yet these laws are routinely and blatantly ignored. Dear Mayor Park Won-Soon and the members of the Seoul Metropolitan Council, We ask you to take immediate action to crack down on the illegal dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants that serve dog meat in your city. We request that an official document be issued, mandating that the following existing Korean laws be enforced by its government officials, police and judges: Unauthorized processing of food waste fed to dogs in the meat trade is a violation of Wastes Control Act, Article 15-2, Article 25, Section 3.  Suppliers of food waste and transporters of food waste to dog meat farms are violating this regulation. Food waste fed to dogs in the dog meat trade is a violation of Control of Livestock and Fish Feed Act, Article 14, Section 1 & 2.  Unauthorized collection of food waste and the act of feeding it to dogs in the meat trade is in violation of this regulation. Excrement and resulting environmental damage produced as a by-product of the illegal dog meat farm is a violation of Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta Article 11.  The excrement produced at dog meat farms causes environmental damage to the immediate and surrounding area. The act of slaughtering of dogs for human consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act Article 8, Section 1, Clause 4. The act of slaughtering of a dog, without a justifiable ground – such as out of necessity for veterinary treatment, or in circumstances of immediate threat, harm or damage to human life or property, is a violation. The slaughter of dogs by electrocution is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 8, Section 1, Clause 1.  Inflicting injury or death to any animal by the following means: battery by tools, exposure to drugs, exposure to extreme heat or fire, electrocution and drowning is subject to legal punishment. Therefore, the routine slaughter of dogs by butchers and farmers by these methods is in violation of the Act. Further, electrocution as a method of slaughter is internationally recognized as an inherently cruel method of slaughter and banned globally. Slaughter of dogs from unauthorized slaughterhouse is a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, Article 7 Section 1.  The Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, states that dogs are officially recognized and classified as “animals” that are “prohibited from being slaughtered and distributed as food for human consumption”. Therefore, those vendors operating dog slaughterhouses are operating outside of the parameters of the law and in violation of the law. Slaughter of dogs for his/her own consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 10.  The intent of the Act is to ensure that no animal is slaughtered in a cruel or revolting manner, and shall be free from unnecessary pain, fear, or stress during the process of slaughter. Therefore, only humane way of slaughtering dogs would be by euthanasia (lethal injection). All currently practiced methods of slaughter by butchers, farmers and traders excludes euthanasia as a method of slaughter, therefore they are all in breach of this Act.  This is also a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act Article 7 Section 1 Clause 2.  According to the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, slaughter of animals for his/her own consumption is allowed only for the livestock animals that are publically announced as classification of livestock in the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act and dogs are not classified here. Display and sale of dog carcass in traditional outdoor markets is a violation of Food Sanitation Act, Article 4, 5.  Violation of laws banning sale of harmful food due to the contamination from unsanitary and illegal slaughter of the animal and display of the dog carcass. For example, dog carcass are routinely contaminated by microorganisms that cause human diseases and food poisoning which can lead to serious and life threatening health complications.  There are also strict laws which ban the sale of meat from sick animals, due to the fact that there is no quality control or formal monitoring of slaughter practices in the dog meat trade it is very likely that violation of these laws is happening routinely. Dog meat restaurants’ sale of dog meat soup made with dog carcass from an unknown source is a violation of Food Sanitation Act Article 44 Section 1 Clause 1. Uninspected livestock products must not be transported, stored, displayed, sold or used for manufacturing or processing of food for human consumption. Please refer to the legal information regarding the dog meat consumption in South Korea published by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates):  http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ International coverage of the brutal dog and cat meat trade in South Korea has stained your city’s image.  The time to end this tragedy is now.  The favor of your reply is requested.

Petition to YuLin Government, Ambassador Cui Tiankai

Stop the Yulin Dog Meat Festival!

Dear Ambassador Cui Tiankai, China's rich cultural and traditional history spans thousands of years and now China is fast becoming a recognized and dominating super economic power, with its citizens enjoying a high standard of living as the result of economic and social progress.  However, with great success comes great responsibility, and as a global citizen, I am truly shocked and appalled to learn about the cruelty and suffering currently being inflicted upon the helpless companion animals, namely dogs and cats, of Yulin, killed during the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival. This medieval way of treating animals sits at complete odds with how China has progressed as a society in recent years.  This is not about cultural differences this is about the most basic of ethics and about treating animals with compassion. It's plain to see that the practices carried out at Yulin represent a new low for China. Those animals we choose to be our working companions, our eyes when we are blind, our guardians of the family home, to share our food and to be our best friends for hundreds of years are suffering and are being slaughtered in the most monstrous of ways. There are many videos on YouTube to evidence this, although they are not easy to watch. Despite how you feel about eating any animal, no living, sentient being should be abused or tortured for any reason, and no right-minded person can rationally argue otherwise.  Dogs and cats suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of farmers, traders and butchers - beaten, torched with fire, boiled alive, etc.  Not all these animals are "farmed" - many are beloved, stolen pets.  The medieval treatment of companion animals in Yulin provides a cruel contrast to the slick, sophisticated, modern image that China tries so hard to portray to the outside world.  Until Yulin and the Chinese government officials begin to legitimately and aggressively police, enact and enforce the companion animal protection laws as a first step in ending this shameful industry, I will be protesting for the tens of thousands of suffering, neglected and abused companion animals living lives of utter misery and pain unto death throughout Yulin and other cities that supply these animals to Yulin. ---------------------------------- To learn more and take action, please visit: English: http://koreandogs.org/yulin/Greek: http://koreandogs.org/yulin-greek/Italian: http://koreandogs.org/yulin-italian/Spanish: http://koreandogs.org/yulin-spanish/ Ambassador Cui TiankaiEmbassy of the People's Republic of China in the United States of America3505 International Place, N.W.Washington, D.C. 20008 U.S.A.Tel: +1-202-495-2266Fax: +1-202-495-2138E-mail: chinaembpress_us@mfa.gov.cn http://www.china-embassy.org/eng/ Consulate General Luo LinquanConsulate General of the People's Republic of China in San Francisco1450 Laguna Street, San Francisco, CA 94115Tel: 415-852-5924http://www.chinaconsulatesf.org/eng/ City of Yulin: http://www.yulin.gov.cn/ Italian:  FERMIAMO LO YULIN DOG MEAT FESTIVAL  Spettabile Governo Cinese, La Cina, con la sua ricca storia di cultura e tradizioni millenarie, è ormai anche un paese dichiaratamente annoverato tra le superpotenze economiche mondiali, con una popolazione ad un alto tenore di vita frutto di un raggiunto benessere sociale ed economico.  Tuttavia, con il grande successo arrivano anche le grandi responsabilità e in quanto cittadino del mondo, sono scioccato e disgustato dalla crudeltà e delle sofferenze inflitte su inermi animali da compagnia, i cani e gatti di Yulin, uccisi durante l’annuale Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Questo barbaro modo di trattare gli animali si scontra fortemente con il progresso sociale raggiunto dalla Cina in questi ultimi anni. Le differenze culturali non c’entrano, c’entra la necessità di trovare modi eticamente corretti e compassionevoli di interagire col mondo animale. E’ sotto gli occhi di tutti che le inumane torture perpetrate a Yulin rappresentano una vera e propria macchia indelebile nella storia recente della Cina. Gli stessi animali che abbiamo scelto come compagni di lavoro, come nostri occhi quando non siamo in grado di vedere, come guardiani delle nostre case e delle nostre famiglie, con cui condividiamo il nostro cibo e che sono i nostri migliori amici da centinaia di anni vengono massacrati nei modi più mostruosi. Esistono molti video su Youtube, a testimonianza di ciò, che non sono facili da guardare. E indipendentemente da come la si pensi in merito al consumo di qualsiasi animale, nessun essere vivente senziente dovrebbe essere in alcun modo costretto a sottostare ad abusi e torture e nessuna persona dotata di logica e raziocinio potrà mai dire il contrario. Cani e gatti patiscono sofferenze indicibili per mano di contadini, mercanti e macellai venendo bastonati, bruciati e bolliti ancora vivi. E non tutti questi animali vengono “allevati” a questo scopo, molti sono animali domestici rubati alle loro disperate famiglie.  Il trattamento barbaro degli animali da compagnia di Yulin si pone in netta contrapposizione con l’immagine elegante, sofisticata e moderna che la Cina cerca da tempo di mostrare al resto del mondo.  Finché Yulin e i rappresentanti del governo cinese non cominceranno a combattere questa pratica con forza e decisione implementando una legge per la protezione degli animali da compagnia come primo passo per porre termine a questa pratica vergognosa, io protesterò per le decine di migliaia di animali da compagnia negletti, abusati e torturati, costretti ad una vita miserrima e pene indicibili e letali in tutta Yulin e in tutte le altre città che forniscono animali a Yulin. Distinti saluti,

Petition to Dr. Pyo Chang-Won

We thank you, Dr. Pyo Changwon for standing up for rights of Korean animals!

Click here to read the latest update from Dr. Pyo Changwon: http://koreandogs.org/pyo-changwon-fb/ We thank you, Dr. Pyo Changwon for standing up for rights of Korean animals! Dear Dr Pyo,  As a member of the National Assembly in South Korea, you have been instrumental in taking the first step in bringing about proposing key amendments to current Korean Animal Protection legislation, to improve the welfare of the dogs in the meat trade and to introduce harsher penalties on those who flout it.   We see this as an important stepping stone in raising South Korea's animal welfare standards in line with the changing attitudes of its people and those held by the wider international community.  It also makes for a positive start towards our future aim of abolishing the dog meat trade in South Korea for good. We wish to reach out to you directly to express our sincere gratitude at your willingness to listen to the voices of both the South Korean people and the wider international community on this highly contentious issue. Challenging established behaviors and business practices, no matter how abhorrent we may find them, is always going to be a struggle regardless of where in the world you are located.  So we thank you for taking a stand for these amazing animals and we sincerely hope that you continue to be a pro-active part of the collective growing ‘voice’ in support of further legislative reform of animal welfare laws in South Korea.   [Korean translation] 한국의 동물보호에 적극 앞장 서신 표창원의원에게 감사를 표합니다. 표창원 의원님께 의원님께서는 대한민국 국회의 동물복지위원회 회장으로서 식용견 유통/판매업계의 개들의 복지를 향상시키고 동물보호법을 어기거나 간과하는 자들의 처벌을 강화하는, 현행 동물보호법 개정안을 발의하는 첫걸음을 내딛는 데에 있어서 큰 역할을 해주셨습니다.   이 발의는 한국인들과 광범위한 국제단체 멤버들의 변화하고 있는 동물복지에 대한 자세에 걸맞게끔 대한민국의 동물 복지 수준을 높일 수 있는 매우 중요한 디딤돌이라고 보고 있습니다. 또한 대한민국에서 음식으로써 개고기 거래 자체를 종식시키고자 하는 저희들의 장기적 목표에 대한 긍정적인 시발점이 되었습니다. 뜨거운 논쟁거리가 되어온 이 문제에 대한 대한민국 국민들 및 국제단체들의 의견들을 마다하지 않고 기꺼이 경청해주신 점 심심한 사의를 표하고 싶습니다. 전부터 있어왔던 관습과 관련사업은 사람들이 비록 혐오하는 것일지라도 그에 맞서는 건 세계 어느 곳에서든지 반드시 어려울 수 밖에 없습니다. 그렇기에 더더욱 잔인하게 학대 받는 동물들을 위해 강경한 입장을 취해주심에 감사를 드리고, 대한민국 동불 복지 관련 추가 법 개정을 지지하는 연합된 '목소리들'이 점점 커지고 있는 이 와중에 앞으로도 계속해서 주도적인 역할을 맡아주시기를 진심으로 희망합니다. 감사합니다.
