The Koreas and Thailand are the worst offenders of this practice.
With our ties to S.Korea, it's pathetic that nothing has ever been attempted to stop this.

I am disgusted by these humans. There are not enough words to describe my feelings. The photo says it all.

Terrifying that there are at least 500 of those bastards raising dogs and cats for meat! And ignorant people continue to piss me off when they say it is no difference to eat a dog/cat or a cow/ chicken. Dogs and cats are intentionally and purposefully made to suffer before they are killed! Cattle and goats don't have a walk in the park either, but they are not beaten to death.

I have been living in S.Korea for almost 2 years....while i believe that people eat different foods in different countries and most people have no leg to stand on (Hindu's believe cows are sacred and that doesnt stop most people from eating beef)....but the dog issue here goes beyond "dogs are pets". They burn dogs alive or beat them to death cos they believe it enhances the taste and gives men virility. It's absolute crap. But the focus should not just be on dogs....unlike the back home in South Africa where cattle has large land to graze on, here land is utilised for rice patty fields etc while cows and chickens and pigs are stuffed into tiny pens. It's all a disgrace!
