Subject: Pittsburg CA, sister city to Pohang S. Korea: where dogs and cats are (illegally) tortured and eaten!
 

Dear Mayor Johnson,
City Council members: 
 
This is an important issue regarding your sister city Pohang in South Korea.
Dog-meat consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law – but the laws are not enforced.
 
The dog and cat meat trades involve extremely brutal and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress.
 
I urge you to please watch and be informed by just 2 videos of South Korea’s illegal dog meat industry:
 
and
 
I don't believe that you want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on animals that are loyal, trusting creatures, which look up to us humans as their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are being allowed to continue by S. Korean authorities – even though there is growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Pohang, especially Mayor Kang-Deok Lee, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion to their companion animals, and also respect to their own citizens, by bringing these trades to an end.
 
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make a change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know what your thoughts and feelings are about this.
 
Sincerely:

 

Vallejo CA, sister city to Jincheon S. Korea: where dogs and cats are (illegally) tortured and eaten!

Pasadena, friendship city to Paju S. Korea, where dogs and cats are (illegally) tortured and eaten!

From: http://koreandogs.org/friendship-city-campaign-paju-south-korea-pasadena-california/
Post a message please. Adjust the text if possible; and/or call, send a letter, or use twitter
----------------------------------------------------


 
This is a message about the horrific, brutal dogmeat industry in South Korea; I urge you to be informed and watch the undercover video
 
 
Paju is one of the largest dog meat consumption areas in South Korea. The Korean internet searches resulted in: 143 Health Food Centers which commonly sell dog/cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju); and 135 dog meat soup restaurants in and around the city of Paju alone.
According to the  Korea governor's Association database on sister cities,
Pasadena is a sister city of Paju. I believe that you would not want to be  a Friendship city to any city that allows dogs and cats to be tortured and eaten.
Please urge Mayor Jae-Hong Lee of Paju to close down all illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers and restaurants who serve their products.
 
An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress:
 
 
Please let me know your decision,
thank you.
 
Sincerely:
