Dogs Sold For Meat
We would all like to think that animal cruelty rarely occurs, but there are dogs sold for meat even today.
These poor animals are kept in filthy cages with no chance of ever seeing a human as a person of trust.
The dogs are brought out from the cage and killed by non-humane methods such as slitting their throats. This is done in full view of the dogs still in the cages.
Can you imagine what this might feel like? They live in a constant state of total despair.
And no, I am not talking about a third world country here. This is going on in South Korea on a daily basis.
The South Korean government is aware of this, yet does nothing to stop it apart from reportedly saying that they do not support it.
How can you help?
You can sign the petition at Stop Dog Meat.
You can visit Ending the Dog Meat Trade and make a donation.
You can write to your MP and ask for your Government to put pressure on the South Korean Government to put a stop to the dog meat trade.
Please note that not all South Koreans do this. It continues to happen due to a minority group of people.
Below are two videos. Both are very confronting.
The first shows a huge protest held in South Korea earlier this year.
The second shows what it is like for animals in a dog meat farm. Be warned before you scroll down, it is not pretty.
