All Sadly Signed and up to date!   I'm going to sleep now as it's 2am but after seeing all those terrible photos of all those poor dogs and their agonising deaths I'm probably going to have nightmares!!  How any person could ever torture and do such terrible things to 'man's best friend' I will never ever know!!  I'll cuddle up to my two dogs for comfort now in the thankful knowledge that they are both safe from such evils!

always on a soapbox...the question I have,is after 2 years of this,Have we even made a dent???

I only see more petitons,a few dogs saved,but the practice is still thriving..

wonder what it's going to take,,,,need to spike these people's food,make them so sick for 48 hours,that they will never eat another dog or cat again.....how do we do that???

nothing seems to gross them out,probably live slugs are a delicacy,wouldn't surprise me..

(CN) Opposition increases to dog eating festival
Mon Jun 10, 2013 11:26 pm (PDT) . Posted by: "Maya Gottfried / Animals Asia" MayaLG


*For immediate release
10 June 2013***

*Opposition increases to dog eating festival *

Animals Asia has added its voice to growing calls to stop the annual
summer solstice dog eating festival in Yulin in the Guangxi Zhuang
Autonomous Region, China.

.

It takes place this year on June 21st with animal welfare activists
already lining up against it in large numbers.

An open letter from Animals Asia in opposition to the event has been
sent to the Guangxi Yulin government. Copies of the correspondence have
also been shared via Animals Asia's Weibo
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sina_Weibo> accounts, receiving well over
a thousand shares and hundreds of comments - the vast majority in support.

The letter had been forwarded to the Mayor as well as representatives
from the Tourism Bureau, Health Bureau, Cultural Bureau, Husbandry and
Veterinary Bureau and the Food and Drug Administration.

Online opposition has been further boosted with criticism of the event
coming from celebrities Sun
Li<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Sun>and Shu Qi
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shu_Qi> with fans adding their voices via
reposts and comments.

Animals Asia will again be sending out thousands of leaflets in
opposition as well as having representatives leafleting at the event.
The aim being to point out the cruelty involved in the dog meat trade,
the many dogs that are snatched from owners and the danger to public health.

Animals Asia China Cat and Dog Welfare Manager Suki Deng said:

"We have written to the local authorities to lodge our complaints and to
outline the cruelty involved and the dangers of eating dog meat. Beyond
this we believe that an industry largely driven by illegal means should
have no place in a civic event such as this. Each year opposition to
the event grows and the publicity surrounding the event becomes less
favourable.

"There are other elements to the festival and to remove the dog eating
need not spell the end of the festival itself. The truth is,
considering what we know about the industry, stolen pets will be among
those dogs consumed. In addition by taking part, people will be
endangering themselves as disease can easily spread through dogs
trafficked in this way."

Animals Asia founder Jill Robinson added:

"We have heard the argument that dog eating represents Chinese culture
and tradition. We have long answered that culture and tradition are no
excuse for cruelty and brutality. We would also like to point out that
China has an increasing culture of animal welfare and heightened concern
over practices such as these. Traditions should not be above criticism.
Neither should they be exempt from change.

"In Chinese society dogs are becoming increasingly recognised for the
help and assistance they provide to those in need. We now have guide
dogs for the blind, therapy 'Dr. Dogs
<http://www.animalsasia.org/index.php?UID=FYDUXVAXOJC8>' and dogs
assisting customs officials and the forces in detecting illegal
contraband and explosives. "Dogs have also assisted rescue services to
find victims and survivors during earthquakes and other tragedies, and
increasingly provide companionship and comfort in family homes."

[S. Korea] Moran Market Dog Meat Shops Maintenance by City of Seongnam vs. Right to Survive..."

'

Dog Fight" with Pride at Stake
http://koreandogs.org/moran-market-maintenance/
'
This is a Korean News from August 2012 but the English caption has been added now: http://youtu.be/zVFmWEoFVk0
'
Translation of S. Korean News on 8/25/2012 http://news.jtbc.co.kr/article/article.aspx?news_id=NB10158399
Dog Fight is in full swing at the Moran Market in Seongnam these
days. As city of Seongnam moves forward with the maintenance of dog
meat shops, shop owners are resisting with the demand for guarantee of
their survival.
Yeon-Tae Kim with JTBC affiliates, Central Daily (Joongbu Ilbo) reports.
A row of dog meat shops lines the street.
In cages, dogs bred for consumption look flaccid.
Shop owner completes price negotiation with a customer and drags a dog inside.
Yellow dog (Neurongi)seems to have sensed his death, he is struggling desperately.
After a while, this dog burned into black is sold as health food dog meat.
Number of dogs slaughtered and sold each day by 21 dog meat shops in Moran market is approximately 200.
[Gyeong-Soon Kim/ Seongnam Hadaewon-dong: They are living beings so
when I see them being slaughtered sometimes, it's horrible and hideous.]
[Gang-Woo Lee / Seongnam Seongnam-dong: It's not good aesthetically to
display and sell them in the street where pedestrians can see.]
City of Seongnam is set out to make some changes because of endless civil complaints about Moran market repulsive scenery.
They¹ve decided to move the cages from illegally taking space on the road and sidewalks.
That¹s because Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act does not classify
dogs as livestock, so the sale or distribution of dog meat cannot be
banned or regulated.
[Eun-Sik Shin / City of Seongnam, Animal Resource Team Leader: Based on
our current law, we can't regulated them but we will ask them to move
the cages voluntarily. If this doesn't work then, we will issue them
warning and if the warning doesn't work then we will impose fine.]
Shop owners who have been in business at this market for the past 40
years are resisting claiming that moving the cages will threaten their
livelihood.
[Gang-Chun Lee / President of Moran Market Livestock Traders
Association: We are very offended because we are being treated as if we
are committing crime.]

Letter to Korean Companies
3 years ago

Dear Managements of South Korean Companies,

In S. Korea, 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are tortured and slaughtered each year to fuel the $2 billion illegal dog and cat meat industry, a trade that has neither been officially recognized nor accepted by the Korean Government nor the EU.

Bishop Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”

Today, we urge you to choose the side of the oppressed and take your position to help ban the barbaric and inhumane dog torture and consumption in S. Korea!

If you want to export your products and services to the rest of the world, and showcase the best of Korea, then please respect our wishes and do your part to end this madness that is going on in your country.  Make it your company’s policy to ban employees from eating dog meat that fuel the pockets of these criminals.  Lobby your government to enact an enforceable animal protection law that abolishes this abomination once and for all.  In doing so you will gain the respect of the youth and the understanding of your customers, currently horrified by these atrocities.

It’s 2013!  If it was North Korea one could try to understand, realizing that people are dying of starvation in that backward society.  However, South Korea is flourishing and consumers have food and choices.  South Korea has a wide variety of cuisine and the West can not understand why you continue to choose not just to eat but to torture companion animals who have served us so faithfully over thousands of years.  Just recently the United Kingdom welcomed South Korea in London and your Paralympians had their faithful guide dogs by their side.  The world showed you acceptance and respect, only now to finally discover the very country they are trading with is a nation devoid of any compassion.  To know that you are eating not just “farmed animals” but even former pets is incomprehensible to us your customers.  To know you turn a blind eye to markets where slaughter takes place in full view of mothers and children fills us with horror. To know you boil and burn dogs alive fills our children with fear.  This is the message you are giving to your current and future trading partners.  If you can not show compassion, think about the economics, think about the tourism and think about future World Events.  There will be boycotts. There will be major outcry. There will be sanctions.

Please read the argument against dog meat consumption by Venerable Beopjeong Buddhist priest (법정스님의 개식용반대론): http://koreandogs.org/?p=5557.

You still have time to act and make a difference.  Do not allow your company’s image and good name to be tarnished by this illegal industry.  Make S. Korea Proud- Make the Change Now.  Don’t let this be your legacy.

Sincerely,

Your name

                      Ask South Korea's New President To Stand Up For All Dogs

Is South Korea's new President a secret dog lover? President Park Geun-hye received two Jindo pups as inauguration gifts. Jindos are the most widely used breed of dog in South Korea's illicit dog meat trade, which kills two and a half million dogs a year.

The dog meat trade exists in a legal blind spot caused by conflicting regulations. Please help IDA help dogs and cats in South Korea! Send a polite message to President Park on Facebook and/or Twitter, asking her to expand her love for her new canine companions to include all dogs in South Korea by banning the horrific dog meat trade, completely and permanently.

Dogs in the meat trade are electrocuted, hanged, beaten to death, and have their throats slashed. They are thrown into tubs of boiling water, then into rotating drums for the removal of their fur, and then they are blowtorched, often while still conscious. The prevailing myth is that the more suffering endured during slaughter, the more tender the meat and more potent the so-called "medicinal properties."

 How can anyone deny the Tigerwine. There was a worldwide petitions on a Friday 1 1/2 year ago to try to stop the auction in China of  , i believe , 200 bottles tiger wine for extremely much money with extremely rich people. The petition was for the Governor from that area , and asked to forbid the auction. There were in less then 24 hour so much signatures that it maybe helped , the auction was canceled a few minutes for it would started.

But before that petition , I also did not know and I cannot believe someone will drink that.

3 years ago

Lenicka - you certainly find things out. I did not know about Italy either, though of course I know about tiger bone wine. There are people who do not believe tiger bone wine is still made but they are deluding themselves. One of them sent me a message the last time I made a comment about it on one of the petitions and denied it happenned. In a country where they boil dogs alive and are responsible for driving rhino to extinction anything is possible. There are no civilised countries in the world - every day something happens that proves that. Within every country however, there are some civilised people.

3 years ago

 I first read it in a book a dutch writer who  was going to live in Italy.  He became friendship with small wine farmers ,the wine more for family use. He was going to help in the wine season. Then the farmers told him that it was a old tradition and of course not very liked by the outsiders. But that it was very good for the wine.

Later I saw on You Tube  , where I was in a discussion with someone that says that cats in Italy had the best life in the world , provided that they would not be castrated , reactions of Italian people that attacked him , told that they know that cats are eaten in a lot of areas.
I remember that there was a petition here where this fact was mentioned too. I was very shocked about that wine story , the writer - that only wrote in that time about his live in that village - maintains that it is  true and that it was common for a long time.
It's of course not in the wine of big wine companies. I even did not believe it , till I saw that it was an old tradition in China too , for the Rice Wine. And it still will be in the small villages. They make still expensive wine of tigers , why not with cats?

The fact that they eat cats in Switzerland I saw on the website ,I posted below and after that I hear that is was in Italy too. I think Fulvia , in Italy you have such as much backwards peasant , as in the rest of the world with there stupid so-called old traditions.

And what they all do with animals in our civilized area is also not very nice. How many ladies know that the base of their expansive perfume are the anal glands of a civet-cat  ? That the anal glands is painful harvest every day from civet-cats that live their whole live in small cages ? How many vegetarians knew that the gelatin on their puddings  , in all the candy's ( Haribo) etc. are made from bones? So how many things in our live , we think that are pure , sweet or smells good , are based on disgusting ingredients ? Cheese with a rennet stomach as ingredient? So after all this I would not surprised that the cat-wine story is really true , like the writer insist . I will try to find the book and let you know more Fulvia , maybe you can contact the writer then.

Shocking and horrible , yes. And it has to stop.
But what about the rest of the world ? In Italy - on the countryside - they take a cat for fermentation of the wine , just like the Chinese did ( or do?) with the rice wine. And I think that a lot more people on countrysides in the world , also do this. In the US there are centers from where a Asian breeder distribute on-line purchased cat meat. That means that selling and distribute cat and dog meat is not forbidden in some US states.

Ect , ect. It's a nightmare.

Urge the S. Korean Government to Respect Global Animal Protection Laws and Ban the Dog & Cat Consumption Immediately!
The unprecedented cruelty towards animals can no longer be tolerated and it is the moral duty of our Government to intervene on behalf of animal welfare organizations and American public to urge S. Korea to respect and enforce not just its own but Global Animal Protection Laws. Each year 2 mill dogs & thousands of cats are brutally killed often boiled alive. Forced to endure suffering deprivation, torture from birth to death. Abandoned pets end up as meat. We oppose this on ethical, health, environmental and moral grounds. The issue concerns US because in 2018 we will attend Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. It is unconscionable for the Government to ignore the huge growing shock and outcry on social media sites. Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness confirmed animals are not just commodities.

Subject: Samsung/S. Korea


Dear Management of Samsung:

In S. Korea, 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are tortured and slaughtered each year to fuel the $2 billion
illegal dog and cat meat industry, a trade that has neither been officially recognized nor accepted by the Korean
Government nor the EU.
Bishop Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
Today, we urge you to choose the side of the oppressed and take your position to help ban the barbaric and inhumane
dog torture and consumption in S. Korea!

If you want to export your products and services to the rest of the world, and showcase the best of Korea, then please
respect our wishes and do your part to end this madness that is going on in your country. Make it your company’s policy
to encourage employees not to eat dog meat and fuel the pockets of these criminals. Lobby your government to enact
an enforceable animal protection law that abolishes this abomination once and for all. In doing so you will gain the respect
of the youth and the understanding of your customers, currently horrified by these atrocities.

It’s 2012! If it was North Korea one could try to understand, realizing that people are dying of starvation in that backward society.
However, South Korea is flourishing and consumers have food and choice. South Korea has a wide variety of cuisine and the
West can not understand why you continue to choose not just to eat but to torture companion animals who have served us so
faithfully over thousands of years. Just recently the United Kingdom welcomed South Korea in London and your Paralympians had
their faithful guide dogs by their side. The world showed you acceptance and respect, only now to finally discover the very country
they are trading with is a nation void of any compassion.
To know that you are eating not just “farmed animals” but even former pets is incomprehensible to us your customers.
To know you turn a blind eye to markets where slaughter takes place in full view of mothers and children fills us with horror.
To know you boil and burn dogs alive fills our children with fear.
This is the message you are giving to your current and future trading partners.
If you can not show compassion, think about the economics, think about the tourism and think about future World Events.
There will be boycotts. There will be major outcry.
There will be sanctions.
You still have time to act and make a difference. Do not allow your company image and good name to be tarnished by this
illegal industry.

Make S. Korea Proud- Make the Change Now. Don’t let this be your legacy please!

Sincerely:

OPEN LETTER TO THE AUTHORITIES OF THE GUANDONG GOV'T IN CHINA
3 years ago

If not sent yet, please do, and forward!

To: 110@gdga.gov.cn ; ywts@gzfda.gov.cn ; xzts@gzfda.gov.cn ; waiban@gz.gov.cn ; webmaster@gdfao.gov.cn

Subject: OPEN LETTER TO THE AUTHORITIES OF THE GUANDONG GOV'T IN CHINA

TO:

Guangdong provincial goverment:

Food & Drug Administration Bureau of Guandong:

Guangdong Foreign Affairs Office of Guandong Province

Tel: (8620) 81218888 Fax: (8620) 81218569


Dear Sir or Madam,


Newspapers worldwide are reporting about the extreme torture of cats that are skinned and then boiled alive by butchers in Guandong. Thousands of cats are sold to the Guangdong restaurants, and most of these cats come from other provinces where cat nabbers have become infamous all over China, terrorizing cat owners who fear that their cats may be stolen to be sent to Guandong restaurants. The shocking side of this story that's making human beings all over the world shiver with indignation is that cats are skinned and dismembered alive, and still alive when thrown into boiling water to finally finish a most hellish suffering with their last breath.


It is with profound distress that I am writing to you regarding this most Inhumane treatment of cats and ask you wholeheartedly that you put a stop to it immediately. The West is horrified by so much vileness, and this will certainly not be a postcard that China would want for the world to see. It is because of these practices of a minority that the important and rich Chinese culture and history have become so stained and repudiated by most countries which have adhered to humane laws to protect the most defenseless members of our planet: the animals. It will not be difficult for China to adjust to this new era since most Chinese people abhor these extreme cruelties. The minority in your society who delight themselves on this type of cruel bloodshed are a few and they will only destroy China's respectability around the world. Surely, not all Cantonese are proud of the smell of blood tainting their culture and history.


Quoting General Secretary Hu Jintao on December 18, 2008 commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the reform: "the spiritual poverty is not socialism," can be translated also for non-humans as these practices are certainly a great poverty of spirit and one that will bring shame to the Chinese civilization. It is now a good opportunity to follow on his Excellency Hu Jintao's footsteps to a rich and spiritual socialism.


Respected Guangdong Provincial party committee, the provincial government, Guangzhou Municipal party committee, the municipal government leads: These acts have driven people around the world beyond their limits of forbearance. There is nothing that should justify such horror, let alone something as selfish as the culture of food based on the suffering of the innocent and the defenseless.


I appeal to your conscience and the compassion that you surely have in your hearts, to put an end to so much suffering inflicted upon the most defenseless members of your society: the animals. Please make it illegal for butchers to inflict so much pain and agony on the voiceless and defenseless animals. Please investigate these atrocities, and forbid any food and beverage that is based on cruelty, and capture and destroy the suppliers and sales of live animal companions for food, immediately. Modern laws and regulations must be instituted immediately to avoid this type of traffic and the extreme suffering involved with it. No nation should have to be embarrassed of their own country because of a minority that can only bring shame and disgrace upon itself. It would be to the great advantage of China to put an end to this horrific treatment of animals to show the world that it is also compassionate and civilized, and has the ability to be an effective part of the third Millennium.

Sincerely:

Mail to the World Org. for Animal Health, OIE
3 years ago

World Organization for Animal Health (OIE) is the intergovernmental organization responsible for improving animal health and welfare worldwide and S. Korea is a member. http://www.oie.int/en/ Let's alert and ask them to investigate S. Korea's dog meat trade cruelty. Their emails:
oie@oie.int, t.ishibashi@oie.int, rr.asiapacific@oie.int, srr.seasia@oie.int

Dear World Organization for Animal Health,

The $2 billion dollar-a-year South Korean dog and cat meat industry, which extinguishes the lives of approximately two and a half million dogs a year for meat or gaesoju, a dog wine or broth, and thousands of despised and doomed cats for so-called “health” tonics or goyangyeesoju, and soup, operates in a sordid and illicit world where farmers and butchers kill with frightening impunity in the most abominable fashion. Dogs are killed with high-voltage electrocution, which takes anywhere from thirty seconds to three minutes, hanged, and even beaten to death at the request of customers who believe the meat more tender and tastier the greater the suffering (one of the most pernicious of myths), and that the so-called medicinal properties are enhanced. They are most often killed within sight of their cage mates. They are then thrown into a tub of boiling water, often still alive, and then into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally blow torched. At Moran Market, South Korea’s largest open air-market for dog meat, dog carcasses are on display next to the cages of live dogs. Cats are often bludgeoned and thrown into boiling water while still alive. At the farms, dogs are fed germ-infested, rotting, and fermented human leftovers, a health risk to both the dogs and those who eat them. In South Korea, dogs and cats’ lives are short and ferociously heartless until they tremble no more at the hands of their slaughterers as cage mates look on. Read more: http://skdogcatcampaign.com/

Please read the below important report by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates) regarding the status of dog meat industry: http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/KARA-Dog-Meat-Report_English-1.pdf

Subject: South Korea, to the Attention of Secr. General Mr. Ban-Ki Moon

Dear Secr. General, Mr. Ban-Ki Moon:

I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in your country, South Korea.
With the ubiquity of social medias, everyday we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country.

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.

We urge you and the people of S. Korea to learn the teachings of venerable Beopjeong Buddhist Priest on why S. Korea should immediately end the dog meat consumption: http://www.kaap.or.kr/s1.html?db_name=s1&idx=19998&kwd=&mode=read&page=2&page_list=1&search=.

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:

I have to comment again - I cannot get this picture out of my mind - who took it, who stood by and watched these poor animals being brutally slaughtered. Why can teams not go in and rescue these animals? I will never be able to get over this. The only way to end this is to send people in and if they can't rescue all the animals then give them something to put them to sleep forever then these bastards can start eating each other. They are barbaric low life rubbishes and they need to be eliminated as soon as possible.

I am extremely upset about the dog and cat meat trade at Gupo Market in

farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and

And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and

Until these things are done, Korea's reputation in the international

despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.

From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean

A través de la presente deseo saludarlos muy cordialmente y a la vez manifestarle mi rechazo a la celebración que se lleva a cabo cada año, el día 21 de septiembre en “La Quebrada”, San Luis de Cañete. Nos referimos al festival “Curruñao”, donde se matan gatos para para consumo.

Nos causa preocupación la tolerancia del ex alcalde, Paulino Antezana Urbinano, de la actual alcaldesa de San Luis DELIA VICTORIA SOLORZANO CARRIÓN y de las autoridades nacionales y regionales que hasta la fecha no prohíben el consumo de gatos en dicho festival pues esto no solamente va contra la salud de las personas, ya que la carne de gato no es apta para el consumo humano, y contra la Ley de protección a los animales Nº 27265, sino también nos hace quedar a los peruanos como bárbaros y retrógrados ante el mundo.

Tal hecho abominable, el de matar gatos para consumo, tiene un origen solamente demagógico y politiquero, iniciado en los años 90 por Jorge Brignole Santolalla, ex alcalde de Cañete y persona de dudosa reputación, con el fin de congraciarse con parte de la comunidad cañetana. Es absolutamente falso que se trate de una tradición, como se excusan los autores de dicho festival, pues no hay ninguna colectividad afro en toda América que coma gatos, solo ese grupo peruano.

Sabiendo que la alcaldesa de San Luis, persona sensible, razonable y que administra el Municipio con la idea de hacer que los ciudadanos de San Luis de Cañete alcancen el más alto nivel en calidad de vida en un distrito moderno, saludable y desarrollado, les solicitamos tomen medidas acordes con la Ley Nº 27265 para prohibir esta matanza, pues en ella se especifica lo siguiente:

Artículo 1.- Declárese de interés nacional la protección a todas las especies de animales domésticos (….) contra todo acto de crueldad causado o permitido por el hombre, directa e indirectamente, que les ocasione sufrimiento innecesario, lesión o muerte.

Artículo 4°.- Obligación de autoridades y de instituciones protectoras de animales.

4.1 El Estado y las instituciones protectoras de animales debidamente reconocidas quedan obligados a velar por el buen trato, salud y respeto a la vida y derechos de los animales.

Artículo 19°.- Sacrificio de animales domésticos no destinados al consumo humano. El sacrificio de animales domésticos no destinados al consumo humano sólo se efectuará por causa de inhabilidad física, accidente, enfermedad o vejez extrema, excepto que constituyan un riesgo para la salud humana. En esos casos deberán ser sacrificados por las autoridades competentes del modo que señale el reglamento.

Por lo expuesto solicito que NO SE AUTORICE el festival “Curruñao” y se dé una Resolución Municipal para sea prohibido. Asimismo, se impongan las debidas sanciones a quienes intenten llevarlo a cabo, patrocinen y/o fomenten.

Esperando que mi petición sea atendida me despido.

Muy atentamente,

Sincerely:

Please take action against the consumption of CAT MEAT during a festival that
takes place in Peru every year on 19th September.This "festival" is illegal
because it is against the law for the protection of animals No. 27265. However
is not only approved and consented by the local authorities and the government
but also by many media and some politicians in Peru who see death and
consumption of this animal as funny and admissible.

Dear Sir,


Thousands of cats and dogs are farmed and slaughtered in South Korea
for human consumption. They are slaughtered in the most brutal and
barbaric ways imaginable with the prevailing myth that the greater the
suffering, the more tender and tastier the meat and that mythical
health properties are enhanced.

To be used in soups and "tonics", the animals are often bludgeoned,
thrown into a tub of boiling water while often still alive, and then
into a rotating drum for the removal of their fur, and finally
blow-torched.

In cases where they are not boiled alive, they are electrocuted,
hanged beaten to death.

This is technically illegal, yet the industry of cat and dog meat
cruelty continues.

I demand a ban on cat and dog meat or I will boycott of the
PyeongChang 2018 Olympics in South Korea.

Adapt the title :

Dear Mr. President,
Dear Madam, dear Sir,


I am extremely distressed about the torture and consumption of animal companions in South Korea.


Even though the government has established an Animal Protection Law, dogs are still electrocuted, hanged, and beaten to death by farmers and slaughters.
Also, dogs and cats are still being tortured and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties except in the minds of gullible customers.


Until South Korea ends this appalling suffering, the country’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer.
Its citizens will face shame and embarrassment. And South Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its glittering modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.


1. I urge the South Korean Government to strengthen the South Korean Animal Protection Law to prevent animal cruelty and to introduce basic animal-protection regulations. It must also provide penalties for violations and ensure that mistreated animals can be legally seized from abusers and given immediate refuge.

2. I request that the South Korean Government create an enforceable law to ban the torture, killing, sale, and consumption of dogs and cats.

There will be worldwide attempts to boycott “PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics" unless the abuse of cats and dogs has finally come to an end.

Sincerely,

Please visit these links. These images inhumane are unworthy of a civilized country.
