I suggest a campaign about ...

INSIST THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT ENFORCE ANIMAL WELFARE LAWS AND BAN THE ILLEGAL INDUSTRY OF DOG AND CAT MEAT

This petition and its demands are not new and if Government has been viewing the hundreds of petitions on You Tube and Social Media they will know the British Public can no longer sit by whilst companion animals are raised in the most unsanitary conditions and then sold as meat. This is not about cultural difference; this is about basic respect – as set down and signed by Stephen Hawking at the 2012 Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness- of the right of all living creatures to a minimum standard of welfare.
The Korean Government by its own admission despite September protests by Dog Farmers in Seoul has not granted legalization of this industry. Yet they allow “ farms” to raise dogs who are kept in cages and fed on food not fit for human consumption and other dead dogs to continue. They allow transportation methods that flout all international standards. They allow markets such as MORAN MEAT market to flourish where Pedigree Dogs and Former Pets are electrocuted and boiled in full view of market visitors.
The government turned a blind eye to South Korea burying alive 8 million livestock in 2011 during the foot and mouth crisis. How can the British public attend the 2018 winter games with a clear conscience? Its time to address this issue and act!

        Humans must continue to evolve and correct injustice to ALL who suffer!

        Dog and Cat meat is demon worship - for the madness to end. Korea must begin to find humanity in it's consciousness and learn animals are intelligent sentient beings with incredible intelligence and far superior emotional intelligence than man. The horrors of Asia including Korea are still pushed despite the illegal nature of the authorities view. for any reform in the welfare of animals in Asia Korea , examples and education of the consequences all round form social international views to the practical horrors of confronting and changing the way Korea views the life of any animals. I strongly support Not To Dog Meat and No To Cat Meat charities along with others like Soi Dog who actually brought this barbaric and vile demon worship to my personal attention. I wish for the sake of the consciousness of dogs and cats that the international pressure to change is stiffened so Korea want to change this.

        The South Korean government should make up its mind. If the dog and cat meat trade is illegal, then act on this by closing down all markets, confiscating all dogs and cats in the trade and homing them to sanctuaries and rescue groups, and place huge fines as well as possible prison sentences on those in the trade for their illegal activities.
        On the other hand, if the South Korean government should take the stance to legalize this so-called trade, then they must put forth regulations that must be adhered to by all participants in terms of the welfare of the animals in their care. I'm talking about providing adequate living conditions including proper habitat for healthy movement, proper food/nourishment, and access to clean water 24/7 as well as good veterinary care for sick animals. Also, these regulations must look out for the proper, humane transport of said animals. As well, these regulations must stipulate humane slaughter that can be regulated by video so that no infractions of said regulations may occur. As well, the public should be made aware of any possible health risks and/or dangers inherent in the consumption of said meat so that they can make informed choice in this regard.
        So I will go back to my first point and question and that is that the South Korean government must decide whether this is a legal or an illegal trade and after that they should act accordingly and take responsibility for what is happening to thousands upon thousands of dogs and cats in South Korea.
        Whether the South Korean government acts one way or another way, it should also stipulate that the owners of dogs/cats that are taken away from them in this trade is illegal. It is without their permission and against their will. That is theft of property and these owners should have legal recourse to seek action against these thieves. South Korea needs to guarantee the rights of all its citizens in terms of all their properties which includes their animals.

        I'm on the side of much stiffer penalty laws.All animals should have same rights as humans.

        All animals are precious they do not not deserve to be treated like this.

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        I don't get how we can judge a country for eating dog & cat when we eat pigs, cows, chicken etc...
        What makes one animal food and one animal not food?
        Don't make it illegal, regulate it, enforce good welfare so the animals are treated well, fed well, and then slaughtered humanely, it will make the meat taste better...
        As with most things, making it illegal causes more harm than good.

        The only way to change people's views including those of foreign governments is to be respectful as a starting point. There is dreadful animal suffering in this country as there are in other countries, lets hope that change can be influenced.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  · 

        Why do some people from this country think they have the right to decide what other people eat?

        I do agree that we should encourage all people to take more care in regard to animal welfare whether or not the animals concerned are to be consumed.

        Disgusting filthy nation this - so wish a bloody bomb could be dropped on them.

        We have more pressing issues in this country......

        Your comments about the rights / treatment of animals are of concern.

        As to the species of animal if you are not a vegan and perhaps a Jain why should you even care? What animals other people eat is their choice not mine.

        ( I deleiberately exclude vegetarians because of the number of them that are hypocrites)

      • Julia Davidson Julia Davidson commented  · 

        Was about to say the same as Mr Patton below. This is ludicrous. What gives a battery-hen-operating, intensive farming, fois gras eating populace any moral high ground to dictate to other countries?

      • Charles PeytonCharles Peyton commented  · 

        Who cares? The HUMAN suffering on North Korea is epic in its scale. There's nothing more parochial and blinkered than worrying about dogs and cats being eaten in that context. Why shouldn't they be? Pigs are at least as intelligent as either, and have personalities that are just as interesting. Why not campaign to ban bacon-eating in the UK? Good luck!

        The government can't guarentee the correct treatment and care of the human population so don't expect this problem to be sorted anytime in the near future.
