Sign: Ban the Horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade in S. Korea

Sign: Ban the Horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade in S. Korea

The world was watching the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea -- but away from the cameras' view, dogs and cats were brutally slaughtered for meat. Ahead of the event, some dog meat markets were shuttered to keep this cruel industry hidden from the eyes of tourists and media. But now is the time to do much more than that, and finally end the horrific dog and cat meat trade for good.

S. Korea is the only country in the world with large-scale, commercial dog meat farms. The animals live in deplorable conditions, and at slaughter are often hung, electrocuted and beaten just because people believe the torture makes the meat taste better.

S. Korea's current leader, President Moon Jae-In, has compassion for animals and has even adopted a dog rescued from the meat trade, named Tory. Furthermore, activists throughout S. Korea are calling for an end to dog and cat meat, which is not only horrifically cruel, but tarnishes their international reputation. Most S. Koreans are against dog meat, and want the cruelty to end.

Sign this petition to urge President Moon to take this time in the spotlight to show the world they are a great and compassionate nation -- and finally ban dog and cat meat in the country.

    This barbaric dog meat trade is inconsistent with a civilised human race and should have been eradicated from this planet years ago instead of rewarding South Korea with the Highest UN Role! Now an Olympic games shows complete disregard for the rest of the world who are appalled at this sickening barbarism to dogs so blatantly and shamelessly!

    This is a horrendous way to treat animals. They are as cruel as possible because they think it will tenderize the meat. They started this terrible trade in the 60S. It’s no old tradition like they say. They think it increases virility in the men. THIS HAS TO STOP NOW.

      There are no “domestic creatures”. Creatures are creatures they all feel pain. Don’t eat them period.

    We should stop asking our Gods to clean up our mess and take action ourselves…
    Mankind is responsible therefore mankind should stop looking the other way and get envolved with being part of the solution not the problem…

    Asians need to learn compassion and empathy for all animals. Companion animals must not be slaughtered for food, it’s disgusting.

    I would rather have them kill me as one of those dogs. How a country that my tax dollars support should engage in such barbaric practices is beyond my comprehension. You must stop this horrible inhumane treatment of these poor decent animals. They are loyal to people and this is what they receive in return for their love.

    Korea is a country that went through several wars were innocent people died. Haven’t you learned your lesson South Korea? The dog and cat meat trade is a war against animals. They have done nothing wrong to you. Please stop murdering helpless animals and have compassion for God’s creatures.

    President is another barbaric person just like people who do this is. Personally, I am boycotting the Olympic games, and promoting the same to my friends. Shame on the world for allowing the Olympic games to be held in this filthy violent society. SHame
