Korean Buddhists, support ending the aberrant dog and cat meat trades in South Korea!


To the Korean Buddhists,
The Venerable Beopjeong, one of South Korea’s notable Buddhists, was not afraid to publicly speak out against the dog meat trade and call it barbaric; he said “dog meat consumption is an evil custom that doesn’t belong in a modern society”.
His logical arguments against the consumption of companion animals cannot be countered, he also considered that their slaughter is “a betrayal of their faith placed in humans”.
But the inhumane treatment and outright cruelty, as evidenced time and time again on social media, is carrying on unchecked, as this video shows:
An online petition calling for your support in helping end the aberrant dog and cat meat trades in South Korea is in progress:
We urge you to stand together – to stand up for what is right – and to denounce the dog and cat meat trades for what they are: immoral, inhumane, cruel and unnecessary.
