I am extremely distressed about the torture and consumption of animal
companions in South Korea. Even though the government has established an
Animal Protection Law, dogs are still electrocuted, hanged, and beaten
to death by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being
tortured and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal
properties except in the minds of gullible customers. Until South Korea
ends this appalling suffering, the country’s reputation in the
international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will face
shame and embarrassment. And South Korea will continue to be regarded as
“third world,” despite its glittering modernization and attempts at
globalized thinking. There will be worldwide attempts to boycott
“PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics unless the abuse of cats and dogs has
finally come to an end.
