Bellingham, sister city to Cheongju, S. Korea

Subject: Bellingham, sister city to Cheongju, S. Korea
Dear Mayor Linville.
Dear City Council Members.
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry:
We believe that you want to be informed about this, because Cheongju in South Korea became Sister city with Bellingham in 2008.
In Cheongju there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured on purpose their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – usually while they are still alive.
In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same barbaric cruelty which is illegal by law, but not upheld.
That is why we ask you to please urge Cheongju officials, especially  Mayor Sung-Hun Lee, to close down all those illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, markets, truckers, and restaurants that serve these animal products.
An online petition calling for your support in ending the horrendous South Korean dog and cat meat cruelty is in progress:
Please let us know how your thoughts and feelings are about this concealed subject.
Thank you.
