Animal Rights Group Protests Against Dog And Cat Meat In South Korea

Animal rights activists protested against the consumption of dog and cat meat in front of the Korean consulate in San Francisco Tuesday morning.

Even though it's illegal to eat dogs and cats in South Korea, the government has NOT been strict enough in enforcing the laws, allowing the antiquated practice to continue in the country. In Defense of Animals Campaign Manager Robin Dorman says "the law is deliberately obscure."

Dog meat is used in a summer stew, which is why protestors feel the need to get the word out immediately. The sad part is that, according to Dorman, "according to South Korean activists, that the more a dog is tortured, the better the taste."

Ugh. That's terrible.

Thankfully there has been some progress, however.

A major annual festival at the infamous outdoor market near Seoul called the Moran Market was canceled this year due to pressure, both domestically and internationally, because it's the place where a majority of Korea's dog meat is sold.

We can't even imagine one of our pets ending up on our plates.

Hopefully with word getting out, the consumption of dog and cat meat will soon be illegal in every country.
