Subject: Gresham, sister city to Sokcho S. Korea, where dogs and cats are illegally tortured and eaten!
Dear Mayor Bemis,
City Council members:
I am addressing myself to you concerning an important issue, regarding your sister city Sokcho, in South Korea.
If I could explain: 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 include only these 2 links:
I believe that your city would wish to be made aware of this horrific issue, as they would 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 creatures, which look up to us humans as their guardians.
These illegal trades are being allowed to continue by 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, and Mayor Byeong-Sun Lee, in Sokcho 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!
Please be informed by this ongoing petition:
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make changes; 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.
Awaiting your reply,
