German Olympic Sports Confederation (Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund): Take a stand in PyeongChang2018 against Dog Meat Trade!

Subject: German Olympic Sports Confederation (Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund): Take a stand in PyeongChang2018 against Dog Meat Trade!
 
To:  office@dosb.de
 
Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund:
 
PyeongChang, Südkorea, sind Gastgeber der Olympischen Winterspielen 2018. Ein internationales Zusammenkommen von Ausleseathleten, Sportanhänger, Regierungen und Geschäftsleuten. Eine solch großartige Skala ist eine einzigartige Plattform, für einen bedeutungsvollen Aufstand gegen den weit verurteilten, barbarischen und unmenschlichen Hund- und Katzenfleischhandel in Südkorea zu erheben.
 
Wir wissen, dass Sie beschäftigt sind, sich auf diese epische Sportveranstaltung vorzubereiten. Jedoch benötigen wir nur ein paar Minuten Ihrer Zeit. Bitte schauen Sie sich dieses Video an. Fühlen Sie mit den Tieren mit. Sie müssen zugeben dass die aktuelle Praxis und Einstellung von denjenigen, die an dieser mittelalterlichen Industrie beteiligt sind, völlig unannehmbar und abscheulich sind!
 
Kein Wesen verdient solch eine gewaltvolles dasein vom Moment seiner Geburt an. Qualvoll werden sie geschlachtet; Hunde (unsere besten Freunde) sind eingesperrt in kleinen, rostigen, Käfigen ohne Schutz vor Wärme oder Kälte. Sie haben keinen Zugang zu Wasser, Essen oder ärztlicher Behandlung.
Ihre Trommelfelle werden häufig gesprengt, um sie davon abzuhalten, zu bellen. Sie werden häufig vor anderen lebenden Hunden gekocht, gehängt, geprügelte, enthäutet oder lebendig verbrannt im Glauben, dass der Geschmack Ihres Fleisches sich dadurch verbessern wird. Können Sie sich dieses Ereignis bei Ihrem besten Freund vorstellen?
 
Diese Industrie ist keineswegs ein kleines Geschäft, Tausende über Tausende von Hunden sind in den Fabriken in Käfigen gestapelt, es gibt keine grundlegendsten und preiswertesten humane Landwirtschaftsmethoden in diesem Handle. Dieser Handel hat keine Basis in der Förderung “der Kultur” oder Tradition der koreanischen Leute, es wird durch Habgier und die Gewinne gesteuert.
 
Bitte schauen Sie nicht in die andere Richtung, bitte sehen Sie dieses Thema nicht als "kulturellen Unterschied",wir machen Sie auf dieses Thema aufmerksam und appellieren an ihr Mitgefühl. Es gibt viele Wege Ihre Stimme für diese Tiere einzusetzen. Für einen Wechsel in Südkorea.
 
Diese Petition ist nur ein Anfang, wir fordern Sie auf, Ihre Stimme zu Sozialen Netzwerken und anderen Kampagnen hinzuzufügen. Nutzen Sie diese einmalige Gelegenheit, das Leben so vieler Hunde und Katzen, die zu einem Leben im Fleischhandel verdammt sind, zu verändern. Wenn Südkorea weiß, dass die Welt zusieht und nach Veränderung verlangt, und wenn Südkorea als eine Nation des Gewissens respektiert werden will, müssen die Südkoreaner ihre abgründigen und veralteten Tierschutzgesetze ändern und den Hunde- und Katzenkonsum dauerhaft verbieten.
 
Bitte helfen Sie uns, diese Änderung zu bewirken!

United Kingdom
 
Dear The British Olympic Association:
 
PyeongChang, South Korea, set to play host to the world in the 2018 Winter Olympics. An international gathering of elite athletes, sports fans, governments and businesses on such a grand scale is a unique platform for taking a meaningful stand against the widely condemned, barbaric and inhumane dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.
 
We know you are busy preparing for this epic sporting event. However, we urge you to spare just a few minutes of your time to watch this video, as fellow people with compassion for animals, whether they are raised for our consumption or as our companions, working partners and guardians, we know you will agree that the current practice and attitude of those involved in this medieval industry is completely unacceptable and abhorrent. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo
 
No living being deserves such a torturous existence. Forced to endure the most extreme deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are brutally slaughtered; dogs (our best friends) are battery farmed - imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme elements.
They have no access to water, exercise, or medical care. Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking. Until, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten skinned or burnt alive in the ignorant belief that such suffering will improve their taste. Could you imagine this happening to your best friend?
 
This industry is by no means small scale, thousands upon thousands of dogs are factory farmed in this way every day, there is no emphasis on even the most basic and cheapest humane farming methods in this operation. This trade has no basis in promoting "culture" or tradition of the Korean people, it is purely driven by greed and the profits that can be made in this severely under-regulated, tax free sector which in itself is highly unsanitary and a severe risk to both human and animal health.
 
Please do not look the other way, please do not see this issue as a 'cultural difference', we urge you to look at this issue with unbridled compassion and to use whatever means or methods you can to add your voice to the many already calling for change in south Korea.
 
This petition is just a start, we urge you to add your voice to social media and other campaigns. Please use this unique opportunity to help change the lives of so many dogs and cats condemned to a life in the meat trade. If South Korea knows the world is watching and is asking for change, and if South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience, South Koreans need to strengthen their abysmal and outdated animal welfare laws and permanently ban dog and cat consumption. Please help us to bring about this change!
 
An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress: https://www.change.org/p/the-british-olympic-association-take-a-stand-in-pyeongchang2018-against-dog-meat-trade
The favor of your reply is requested.
Thank you,
 

Sincerely:

Lynnwood, Sister city with Damyang, S. Korea


https://www.facebook.com/damyang.gun/  S. Korea, to post a copy of the letter
Twitter:  .@damyanggun .@greenjeonnam .@lynnwood .@mayor_nicola Plz Urge Sister City Damyang, S.Korea-Stop torture/eating dogs https://goo.gl/324Z0p
-----------------------------------------------------------
To: nsmith@lynnwoodwa.gov; bgoodwin@lynnwoodwa.gov; rross@lynnwoodwa.gov; cboyer@lynnwoodwa.gov; icotton@lynnwoodwa.gov; ghurst@lynnwoodwa.gov; ssessions@lynnwoodwa.gov; ssutton@lynnwoodwa.gov;
 
Subject: Lynnwood,  Sister city with Damyang, S. Korea
 
 
Dear Mayor Smith.
Dear  City Council members.
 
According to the Korean Governor's Association database, Damyang became Sister city with Lynnwood in 2016.
 
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 extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress.
For your information:
 
 
They cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
 
I believe that your city wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue, and not want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Damyang, especially Mayor Hyung-Sik Choi , to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make 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 how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.
 

Sincerely:
