Event description
An estimated 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are slaughtered and eaten as “health food” each year in South Korea.

Forced to endure deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are slaughtered, dogs are imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme weather and no water, exercise, companionship or medical care, never feeling the ground beneath feet. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking.

In broad daylight, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten or burnt to death. This is a profit-driven, tax free, unregulated industry that aggressively promotes the myth that eating a dog (especially the dog’s *****) enhances male virility and gives men energy. In addition, consumption peaks during the hottest days of summer!

Koreans genuinely believe that the more a dog suffers, the more the consumer will enjoy both the health benefits and the meat… Many dogs are sadistically made to experience extreme fear and suffering prior to death. Cats are frequently boiled alive to make tonics believed to treat rheumatism. The demand is so high in South Korea that 20% of the dogs eaten there are now imported from China.

South Korea is the only country known to have large, intensive farming systems to supply the demand for dog meat.

We must ACT NOW!

Please join The Animals' Battalion, in solidarity with as well as countless other animal rights activists worldwide in voicing our disgust at the South Korean government's indifference in allowing this senseless barbaric trade to continue and help us raise awareness about the horrendous suffering inflicted upon our best and most loyal friends - the dogs and cats with whom we share our homes and our lives. This demo will be staged in front of the The Korean Consulate in NYC. It will be one of many simultaneous demonstrations across the world for International Day of Action for the Dogs and Cats of South Korea.
