South Korean Court Finally Rules That Killing Dogs For Meat Is Illegal

South Korea is one step closer to finally outlawing the consumption of dogs. In a landmark decision, a South Korean court ruled that killing canines for meat is illegal.


On June 19, 2018, the city court in Bucheon reviewed a case that was brought by the animal rights group Care against a dog farm operator. Activists accused him of killing animals without proper reasons and of violating building and hygiene rules and regulations. The man was then convicted and fined 3m won (£2,050). Most notable is that the court said meat consumption isn't a legal reason to kill dogs.


Kim Kyung-eun, a lawyer for Care, said: “It is very significant in that it is the first court decision that killing dogs for dog meat is illegal itself.”, adding that the precedent is paving the way for a total ban in South Korea.


Canine meat has been a part of South Korean cuisine since the first century AD. Each year, approximately one million dogs are eaten in the country. However, in recent years, this tradition has been challenged by animal rights activists and younger generations in the country. To crack down on dog farms and appease the public, authorities have invoked hygiene regulations and some animal protection laws. There's still no specific ban against the consumption of canines, however.


According to a related survey conducted last year, approximately 70% of South Koreans don't eat dog mean. Yet surprisingly, only 40% believe the practice should be banned.


To put an end to the eating of dog meat in Korea, Care has vowed to track down dog farms and slaughterhouses and file similar complaints against them to the authorities. “The dog meat industry will take greater heat because of the court ruling,” said the organization’s leader, Park So-Youn.

  2. My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via [email protected] did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.
