Subject: Dog Meat, South Korea

Dear Secr. General Ban-Ki Moon, South Korean Government, dear Sir, Madam, to Whom it concerns:

I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in 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 (법정스님 on why S. Korea should immediately end the dog meat consumption: 법정스님의 개식용 반대론
http://koreandogs.org/?p=5557
http://koreandogs.org/?p=3199

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.
