BREAKING: Dog Meat Market Responsible For 33% Supply In South Korea Is Beeing Shut Down

Animal lovers around the world have a reason to celebrate as one of the biggest dog meat markets in South Korea is about to shut down . “Starting off with the removal of slaughtering facilities and cages in the market, we will ultimately stop the dog meat trade in Moran Market,” Seongnam city official Kang Won-gu told The Korea Herald. The market has seen 80,000 dogs sold either dead or alive each year and has been responsible for supplying one-third of the dog meat consumed in South Korea.

Quoting Mahatma Gandhi, Seongnam Mayor Lee Jae-myung said, “Seongnam City will take the initiative to transform South Korea’s image since ‘the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.’”

Jang In-young, a spokesperson of the The Korean Animal Welfare Association, commented: “Seongnam city took a big step toward changing the dog meat industry here… But we will have to constantly monitor dog meat shops in the market (to see) if they really stop slaughtering dogs and change their business.”

Moran Market was infamous around the world among animal right activists for their brutal dog killing methods, such as electrocution, hanging, or beating canines until dead.
