' The Transport
April 17th, 2014 by Robin Dorman '
If you wish to know why there are disasters of armies and weapons in the world, listen to the piteous cries from the slaughterhouse at midnight. (Ancient Chinese verse) Before rescue, they were condemned to a grim existence that narrowed and narrowed toward a torturous death—their agony, someone’s dinner. And then an elation-bringing moment:
This kind of graphic pictures I like.
Only the one with the dead dogs is very sad.
Very brave that the Chinese people lets see more and more that they want an end of this disgusting and cruel habit

You all have been so wonderful and responsive to the flurry of petitions and posts. Thank you for helping get the word out.
One last one for the day. Promise.
Back in 2011 public outcry made such an impact they did cancel the Dog Festival and that year thousands of dogs were spared.
We CAN do it again. Between the avaaz petition and the one referenced below, China will hear loud and clear STOP THE INSANITY.
Asking one more time today if you would, please sign the petition.com petition Jelena and I did, note the post and share. If you already signed the petition THANK YOU! Please "note" the post to bring it more attention and share this email. The more signatures we get, the more China will know we are watching, we are aware of their willingness to torture and slaughter dogs for entertainment.
Posting on Facebook is welcome too. I am not on there but things like this make me wish I were.
You are so the power of one. We can, together, see a repeat of 2011 and stop this festival.
It has been a crazy day of messages. Please forgive. The passion to help animals supercedes sanity sometimes.

Signed, Ruth Ann and I just created one for our site too, so did Patricia Losch, here are the links:
They - a small group of immigrants - do it anyhow.
Not only in the US but all over the world were they have Chinese/Asian immigrants.
In my country there were a lot of Chinese before WW2 and it's known since 1950 that in a few Chinese restaurants , they served dogs and cats.
In Hawaii , 56% of the citizens is from Asian background and we just signed a petition about the fact that they eat there also dogs and cats.
In Africa there are already markets were they sell dog and cats as food.
In every continent were China bring there big factories and where work only Chinese people , dog and cats as food is coming up.
As long as governments are more interest in money and less in animal welfare , as long as governments allow that China buy land , seaports and factories where only Chinese people are allowed to work - and that are the most backwards part of the Chinese citizens , not people like LangLang and many other civilized Chinese people - so long we will fight a long and strong war against eating dogs and cats , poaching , medicines of extinction animals etc etc.
Wasn't that just inevitable?

The black market for cat and dog fur and meat has become a problem of epidemic proportions in some nations. These animals are often stolen and slaughtered by smugglers in terrible ways. The government must do something to enforce basic decency for animals.

I share your feeling dear Marina. To imagine the longlasting suffering and dying of these dogs (and cats) due to "soft flesh" is unbearable. We have to continue our fight until the last slaughterhouse is closed and then its up to the next generation of animal lovers to stand aginst it to get this barbaric tradition banned
'Stop Cruel Dog Meat Festival
Every year, thousands of dogs are tortured, slaughtered and consumed for a festival in China. Events that promote the psychological abuse and physical torture of such loving creatures have no place in modern society. Tell government officials to permanently cancel this horrific festival and save thousands of dogs from a painful death.
All done, thanks to you all xoxo
I so hate the immense suffering and pain that these poor dogs are forced to endure for the sake of this cruel, inhumane Dog Meat Trade...the reading material and horrific pictures upset and haunt me so very much!! As we all know, dogs are acutely sensitive, caring and loving animals that provide unconditional love and companionship to humans. They don't have a judgemental bone in their bodies...only love!!
My dog, Blackie is so amazingly intelligent, caring and so immensely loving! He misses his human family when we are out and when I sigh....he sighs...every single time even when he is fast asleep! He has such a love in his eyes when he looks at me and can always find my hand to put his paw into when he is on our bed in the dark! How can anyone never mind the masses cause dogs, who are capable of so much love, to suffer so horrendously for this cruel trade and then, to actually eat them is a disgusting, despicable and evil crime against them! They so don't deserve this inhumanity yet, 500,000 of these defenceless, innocent, sensitive, intelligent, loving and non-judgemental animals are killed every single year for restaurants....how cruel, how horrible, how completely utterly WRONG! I am so angry and upset about all of it!

Update on Petition
S. Korean government’s response to our petition to close down Moran Market dog slaughterhouses
On 7/23/2013, we mailed our petition, Seongnam, South Korea: Close Down Moran Market Dog Slaughterhouses-Enforce The Animal Protection Law! to the S. Korean President, Geun-Hye Park and the opposition leader, Jae-In Moon.
We received the response below, sent on 1/18/14 from the Department of Animal Disease Control of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
Basically this letter is saying that the South Korean government WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to stop the dog and cat meat consumption and that they will continue with their current policy of allowing the criminals to murder millions of companion animals every year just because their citizens want to continue eating dogs and cats!!! They will continue to ignore the agony and suffering of these animals!!! SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on South Korea!!!
The following letter is from the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety mailed on 1/9/2014.
Here is the translation:
1. This is in regards to the petition to our department with registration number V20130004452(2014.01.02).
2. Below are our responses to your questions.
a. To consume meat from livestock, the process of slaughtering and processing must be sanitary. The meat must be from livestock not having contracted and not suspected of being contaminated with infectious diseases. Therefore, they must be slaughtered and processed at licensed, sanitary slaughterhouses and veterinarians or qualified inspectors must inspect them in order for them to be used for raw materials, for processing or manufacturing of food.
b. However, dogs are not regarded as livestock under the “Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act” which makes it unnecessary to monitor that the slaughtering and processing is done in a sanitary manner, nor is the conducting of inspections required. Moreover, there is no social consensus on dog meat’s integrity as food. Therefore, dog meat is currently not approved as food.
c. However, Koreans have been cooking and eating dogs for a long time, so we are not prohibiting the cooking and selling of dog meat at restaurants.
d. In addition, if a dog meat restaurant is licensed under the “Food Sanitation Act”, the business operator is responsible for the sanitary handling of food and for complying with the provisions of the “Food Sanitation Act”. And in case of violations, they become subject to administrative measures based on the law.
3. If our response was inadequate or if you have additional questions, please contact Food Policy Mediation Division (Hyun-Sook Jeong, Tel. 043-719-2045 or email: jhs057@...) and for questions regarding the food raw materials, contact Food Standardization Division (Eun-Jin Choi, Tel. 043-719-2434 or email: mfds4797@...). We will provide consultation in a friendly and quick way.
You can find information regarding food, from our homepage (http://www.mfds.go.kr) or Food Nara homepage ( http://www.foodnara.go.kr). Please visit us online! Have a nice day! Thank you! The End.
In short, what they are saying is that the dog meat industry is illegal but since too many people are breaking the law and it’s been overlooked for far too long, they will continue to protect this illegal, criminal industry while millions of innocent animals are tortured and brutally killed every year!!! Is South Korea a Third World Developing Country???…
Thanks very much Julie and WELCOME to our group!!
I have signed all of these petitions previously. I will sign any petition having to do with any kind of animal cruelty and have gone further in rescuing cats when I couldn't get the animal shelter in my county to take these feral cats that were left to freeze to death. they did not as I went to the police department then another county who would accept and work with the cats I managed to humanely trap in mid winter.

Petition links shared to Facebook. Thanks for sharing.
Why do these repulsive creatures have to torture these poor animals as well? As long as humans continue to be carnivores the abuse of animals will continue. The slaughter houses running with the blood of millions of cows,sheep,lambs,pigs and horses are no recommendation for a diet of meat. No animal belongs on a human's plate or in their wardrobe. Human's do not deserve to stay on the planet.

Busan KAPCA(Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) staked out and raided a dog slaughterhouse in Busan Gijang in the early dawn.
The butcher confessed at the scene that he kills dogs by sledgehammer blow to the neck but the Gijang police is telling Busan KAPCA that killing this way is not cruel and the prosecution of this perpetrator will be difficult. Read more and see the photos from the raid here: http://koreandogs.org/busan-gijanggun-sledge-hammer-blow-not-cruel-english/
What can I say?
Up to date.
Already signed. That photograph tells me that this is the work of psychopaths and sadists. It is the vile torture that is involved that makes this trade in dog and cat meat so horrifying.
All signed just as I would sign any petition to stop the meat trade in any animal. All this killing is absolute wickedness and it is inexcusable. Every second of every day an animal is suffering somewhere in a pool of blood in order to end up on some human's plate. It just is not right especially when there are so many alternative foods.
Sorry Monika but there are days when I just can't bear the thought of it any longer.I want to shake people and force them to confront what pain and cruelty they are causing.

They allow lion meat, horse slaughter - it would not surprise me if the Chinese are allowed to do this.
Signed everything, but daren't look at any of the videos and photographs. The torture and cruelty they put those dogs through is horrendous. If I had my way no animals would be killed to eat anywhere in the world. No one needs to eat flesh of any description and it is time humans took a good long look at why they do it.
Warning! Graphic images!

Done and completely disgusted that people could do this. I was almost phusically ill from some of the pictures.
A recent shocking post on Facebook goes into the possibility – unsubstantiated as yet – that China wants to export dog meat into the US. Whether it is true or not, this announcement has released an avalanche of upset and protest about the uncertain possibility that dog meat might be coming to their town – or your town.
Research into this ghastly proposal from China which might only be a rumor has revealed a long history of this practice in other places – Thailand, Korea, North Vietnam, Nigeria, etc.
I still could sign it (before posted) . Thanks for letting me know
