Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorKimberly Cusson
Please join members of IDA to protest South Korea's illegal dog and cat meat trade. Each year, two million dogs are electrocuted, strangled or bludgeoned to death in South Korea. Then they are boiled, skinned, browned by a torch, chopped up, and eaten. Many of the dogs have been stolen from families that love them. The majority of the dogs are homeless, captured by butchers, kept packed in filthy conditions and sold in open markets.

Cats don't fare any better. Viewed as pest animals, cats are boiled alive so their "juices" can be extracted for so-called "health tonics." Although Korean law forbids the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat, authorities turn a blind eye to this horror and thus give their unspoken blessing to the gruesome trade. The Korean Government is even considering regulating and legalizing the consumption of these animals, even though the vast majority of Koreans don't eat dogs or cats.
