The Mayor of Seoul, South Korea Park Won-soon and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon: Help Us Stop the Bok-Nal Dog Soup Festival!

Dear Mayor of Seoul Park Won-soon
Dear UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon,

On July 12th 2015 starts the Korean version of Yu-Lin Dog Meat Festival called Bok-Nal where around 1 million dogs and cats are barbarically and brutally slaughtered for food. Even though eating dogs and cats is many centuries old cultural habit no culture should be a reason for torturous cruelty. This event is lasting for 30 days straight until the 12th of August and the animals that are planned to be slaughtered are in a really bad condition.

These animals are snatched from the streets or stolen pets from their loving families. They are crammed into small metal wire cages where they have no food, no water and they can't move because they are crammed into that cage. These animals suffer from dehydration, malnutrition and in some cases even from dangerous diseases like rabies. These dogs and cats are beaten, skinned and boiled alive in torturous pain for food.

This festival is not only wrong ethically and breaking several animal right and welfare laws but this can also be dangerous for the welfare and health for the people in South Korea.
Many of these stray animals may carry rabies and other dangerous diseases that are dangerous and deadly for humans. In Yu-Lin, China, where a similar festival takes place has the biggest death rates and cases of rabies in the world because of the dog and cat meat consumption.
The festival is also bringing bad reputation to the people and to the Government officials of South Korea.

We are asking you Park Won-soon and Ban Ki Moon to help and take action with us to end this horrific event because you as a Mayor of Seoul have the power to stop it and make a difference.

Please help us to make a better future for the animals and for the people of South Korea.

Thank You!

Signed,

Jasmin Fosse
