After this horrible place, where they found animal torture objects, is completely cleaned up, it will become a public park.
The Taeyeon-dong complex in the city of Seongnam in South Seoul, South Korea, housed at least six animal fridges, as well as one of the most important suppliers of dog meat to restaurants throughout the country. A place where the greatest tortures were committed against the poor and defenseless dogs.
Fortunately, this horrid place has come to an end. In two days, it will be cleaned and turned into a public park, authorities said. Now many Cubs will be as lucky as Camo, a dog who has been saved from one of these places and now shines with happiness and full of love.
At the scene, the dogs were cruelly electrocuted before being killed in front of other caged animals, Humane Society International (HSI) said.
When they visited the site a few days ago, the activists found electrocution equipment, a pile of dead dogs, blood-stained knives and a hair removal machine.
Nara Kim, an HSI activist, described the closure of the historic and famous dog slaughterhouse as “touching”. “I shudder at the thought of how many millions of beautiful dogs have known their horrible fate in this place over the years. It was a stain on the city of Seongnam and we are very happy to see it over,” she added.
She also highlighted the end of the dog meat industry in South Korea. ” It’s a historic moment, “Korean animal rights defenders (KARA) said in a publication.
They commented that this event “will open the door to further closures of dog meat slaughterhouses across the country, accelerating the decline of the dog meat industry in general”. About a million dogs are eaten in a year in South Korea.
This tradition has garnered criticism around the world, which helped to decrease consumption. Now, the idea that dogs are pets and friends and not food, has gained popularity among Korean citizens.
The dogs and all the animals of the world deserve more than to die only for the inhuman pleasure of humans.
