Subject: New Milford, Mayor Subrizi's positive respons, sister campaign

Dear Mayor Ann Subrizi,
City Council members:

I would like to thank you and the Borough of New Milford for responding to our concerns raised via the recent petition on Change.org about the mistreatment, torture and consumption of companion animals in New Milford’s Sister City Miryang in South Korea.

Both domestic and international pressure on this divisive issue is required if we are going to incite some real change in South Korea, so I kindly urge you to reach out to Miryang until affirmative action has been taken by their authorities to end the horrific and illegal practice of the dog and cat meat trade for good.

Thank you again for your efforts here!

Sincerely:

Dear Mayor Subrizi,
City Council members:
According to the Korean Governor's Association database, New Milford is a sister city to Miryang 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 extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress.
For your information:
And  the petition:
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 Miryang, especially Mayor Il-Ho Park, 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:
