Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. Criticizing Korean agricultural practices is the height of hypocrisy when the US has "agra-business" practices that come right out of nightmares. Pigs in cages they can't turn around in, chickens that never see the light of day and calves caged so tightly they can't lay down to keep their veil tender and pale. We should clean our own houses before we clamor so loudly about respect and honor. That said, maybe our countries could find a way to work together to make the treatment of animals used for agriculture more transparent and accountable to the public.

Dog Slaughter Rescued
Dear Sir,

I am sorry that your country shows such cruelty toward animals. You are not the only country and the USA is no exception. However, the recent article about other countries having to rescue your dogs puts great shame on you. I am sorry for you all.

My husband had two Korean doctoral students who were exceptional. I respect Koreans, but not this act.

Please use your voice to fight for these animals who have no voice.

Dear Consulate Staff,

Can I have your attention please ?
Dogs are wonderful animals, and we humans must be grateful for al the help they give us.
They are used for helping disabled people, blind humans ,as companions for elderly people. There are drug detecting dogs , rescue dogs, they can even detect cancer in humans. But apart from being so useful, they are man's best friend !

And what are the South Korean people doing with these lovely animals ,dogs and cats also ? They are eating them !

But before being eaten, they have to suffer atrociously . They have to live in extremely small cages . And at the end of their miserable lives, they are tortured , skinned alive, cooked alive and/or their fur is burned off alive. It makes me cry.

I can feel that you must be ashamed that your people are committing such barbaric acts against animals.

Do not ignore it. Ignoring is even worse than doing it.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Sincerely, with much respect,
