RESCUES FROM THE DOG MEAT FARMS AND SLAUGHTERHOUSES IN SOUTH KOREA
JANUARY / MARCH 2022
This graveyard is located not far from Siun’s home in Namyangju City. Siun has been feeding them all alone. There were over 100 dogs roaming around the graveyard and there was a deserted cow farm next to it. These dogs disappears before first Boknal (three dog eating days during hottest summer in Korea) Nami visited the site and saw many pregnant dogs, decided to go ahead with the rescue. Nami was so shocked to see many puppies survived in the horrible conditions. The former cow farm owner near the graveyard was indirectly killing the puppies using square baskets stack by stack when puppies are born. This was how he controlled the number of puppies being born constantly.
A professional trapper volunteered and came along to catch them one by one. The first batch got caught was eight, they were immediately sent to Dr.Han for spay/neuter and had them all vaccinated (1st shot) None of the pregnant was caught but found one pregnant named Sophie at 2nd batch after two weeks.
This is on going rescue throughout the year until the last dog has been caught. The number will be mulplied again and becomes the victims of the summer dog eating days Boknal in 2022.
16 dogs rescued from #Tobong #DogMeat Slaughterhouse
It was late June that Nami received an email from a boy about a dog slaughterhouse in Tobong district in Seoul.
The email had a few attachment and Nami needed to take action right away.
The site was located in such a secluded up in the mountain hidden. Nami called the police and the District office officials to be at the site present to pull all the dogs on the day. It was tough as the slaughter scene was right next to the dogs, Nami had 119 SOS (Korean version of 911 US) helpers from the region. It took 5 hours to get them all out with the help. All the dogs resisted refused to be pulled. To the dogs being taken out of the cages means “Death” It was a big struggle.
Initially the total heads was 14 then Nami found out there were two more that the butcher was hiding them up in the forest. Nami went back to get the two remaining dogs and the rescue was completed. Half of the dogs are highly traumatized, some are already warming up.
The butcher turned out he is 80 years old this year spent whole life raising the dogs and supplying the meat in the region.The butcher is gone out of business but Nami keeps monitoring keeping her eyes on the butcher.
Dogs rescued from a suburban area where homeless people gather and cook dogs
LOCATION: DANGHA - INCHEON
Dangha is a district newly developed in the City of Incheon. A young couple used to feed the dogs in the forest and realized some homeless people are cooking the dogs when they saw an iron pot and dog bones scattered all over at the site.
The wife Jiwon took the initiative and rescued 11 of them and took the dogs to Dr.Kim. The puppies were transported to Dr.Han for checkups and tests.
Nami took in the three big dogs and they are named “Danbee” “Daisy” and Daniel
New Rescues from Tobong Dog Meat Farm
Two dogs found at Tobong dog slaughterhouse. I was so right when I monitor and keep my eyes on this butcher. I knew he would never quit. Two activists in Seoul who went on the site found two dogs at a corner in the demolished cages. (Two last videos) This old man is 83 years old (Korean age) sometimes sell the dogs sometime sell its meat in the neighbors wet market in his whole life. He used to supply the meat in the ice box on his motorbike and goes around to sell them. It turned out that his deceased wife used to run a dog meat restaurant. He butchered the dogs and his wife cooked them. I got the City and Tobong district officials to go to the site and confiscate the two dogs. What they are saying is that these dogs are the old man's pet meaning that his own private property. They can not force the man to surrender the dogs.
