The Korea Dog Farmers' Association had scheduled a 'festival' aimed at promoting traditional dog meat consumption this week, but it was cancelled following the rising drumbeat of protest from animal rights activists.
This unfathomable 'festival' was planned to be held in the city of Seongnam just south of Seoul, and would showcase various canine delicacies...which frankly yours truly is unable to convey here as it is simply too upsetting to detail : (
How is it possible that this unfathomable practice is still legally going on in South Korea!?! How is it possible tthat nearly 600 farms still raise dogs for meat in South Korea? Un-freaking believable. The good news is that an increasing number of South Koreans are staunchly opposed to this practice and step-by-step, Korean animal activists are working to put an end to it, though it has unfortunately been a slow process due to grey areas in the legal system.
