SAMPLE LETTER!
_____________________________________________________

Dear Mayor Nam-Sik Hur,

I am extremely upset about the dog and cat meat trade at Gupo Market in
Busan, South Korea.

Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion
animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by
farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and
boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties
except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers.

These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries
have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it,
such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind
these countries and other civilized societies?

It's the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the
cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss
the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their
vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary
traditions.

And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and
showing that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That
means it is time for the Korean government to start better educating the
public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning
pets, and about treating animals in a proper manner.

Until these things are done, Korea's reputation in the international
community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame
and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as "third world,"
despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean
companies or visit Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended.

Sincerely:
Stop the Dog and Cat Consumption inS. Korea
