There are many organization and private citizens on a mission to end the dog meat trade. Savekoreandogs.org sees the slaughter of innocent, defenseless dogs in South Korean communities.
“Meat” farms throughout Korea raise dogs for slaughter. Dogs also are stolen from homes and families then beaten to death. Following these brutal beatings the meat is tenderized before adding the meat to stews and soups. This is a disgusting practice but there is not enough worldwide outrage to put an end forever to this horrific practice.
If killing and eating dog meat was a practice exclusively for poor people in Korea, the practice still should not be accepted but sadly killing dogs for their meat is not about helping poor Koreans survive. Capturing and killing dogs for dog markets is a way for rich and poor to make money in Korea.
In Korea Men and women eat dog soups and stews but more men consume them. There is the unfathomable belief by males that eating a dog’s penis will enhance their own virility. Even more unfathomable is their belief that eating dog helps humans stay cool in the summer. Others maintain a belief eating dog has medicinal purposes.
Putting an end to this slaughter is not easy and will not happen immediately but by fighting this practice and strong efforts supporting an end to this practice is possible through the public’s help.
There are a number of groups fighting to end dog slaughter in Korea. Those dedicated to this fight is extensive but to gain greater awareness about this problem, for more information or to make a donation against this practice the following organizations provide important information:
Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (Care)
There has been some progress, but change is slow. Attention and outrage against this practice, in addition to education is needed.
