It is expected that 1,000,000 dogs will be tortured and slaughtered just for the “three dog meat eating days" of the South Korean Sambok/Boknal.
A total of 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are tortured and killed every year.
In broad daylight, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten, have their throats slashed, or are boiled or burnt to death. This is an unregulated industry that promotes the myth that eating a dog's penis enhances male virility and stamina. Koreans claim that the more a dog suffers, the better its meat is. So the dogs are sadistically tortured so they will suffer extreme fear and agony prior to death.
The dates for this country's slaughter are based on the lunar calendar and the dates for the 2016 Korean slaughter tradition will soon be announced

We are respectfully asking President Park Geun-hye and others to use their authority and influence to stop this annual slaughter of dogs for the Sambok/Boknal.
