Mr. Matthieu Ricard, please speak out against the brutal dog meat trade in South Korea!

From http://koreandogs.org/ricard/   Use the sample letter or your own
Tweet:  .@matthieu_ricard Plz speak out against horrific #dogmeat #catmeat #cruelty in #SouthKorea https://goo.gl/NzN6y8 https://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
To: usa@karuna-shechen.org, asia@karuna-shechen.org, canada@karuna-shechen.org, england@karuna-shechen.org, jon.schmidt@karuna-shechen.org,
karuna-shechen@monaco.mc
 
Subject: Mr. Matthieu Ricard, please speak out against the brutal dog meat trade in South Korea!
 
Dear Mr Ricard,
 
You teach that: “every bear, dog, or mouse experiences sorrow and feels pain as intensely as we do”.
 
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu700
 
Each year, around 30 million dogs are slaughtered and eaten in Asia, including Korea, China, Indonesia and Vietnam. In South Korea alone, it is estimated that, annually, 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are brutally slaughtered and eaten.
 
Dogs that are bred on dog farms live in miserable conditions. In South Korea, dog meat consumption is illegal but their Government is allowing it to continue, thereby causing immense suffering to these animals. All breeds of dog are used for meat, including stolen pets and abandoned dogs. They are confined to small, filthy cages, given rotten food and scraps which are unfit for consumption, denied space to exercise, and given no shelter from extreme weather conditions. They cannot even feel the ground beneath their paws as they are contained in wire cages, raised off the ground. These conditions are deplorable and cruel.
 
Dogs are slaughtered in the most brutal and painful methods, often in front of other dogs which watch in fear for their lives. They are beaten, stabbed, hanged, butchered, thrown into pots of boiling water, skinned, electrocuted or blow torched – often whilst still alive. This inhumane torture has to stop.
 
Mr Ricard, you also teach that “compassion towards … beings, including our fellow animals, is the direction towards which any enlightened society must aspire.” South Korea is a successful and prosperous nation, but it is not ‘enlightened’: there is little compassion shown to any of these animals, in any of the processes in the dog and cat meat trades. Please join us in speaking out openly against the violence that is being perpetrated daily in South Korea towards these animals; please help stop these barbaric acts of torture, and the unimaginable suffering.
 
An online petition calling for your support to help end the horrendous dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/mr-matthieu-ricard-mr-matthieu-ricard-please-speak-out-against-the-brutal-dog-meat-trade-in-south-korea.
 
Thank you in advance for your response.
 
Yours sincerely,
