STOP KILLING DOGS! 2 million dogs killed in Horrible ways every Year in South Korea

That’s over 5,000 dogs a day who get strangled, burned, electrocuted or beaten to death for their meat

The South Korean government has accepted Animal Protection Laws which make animal torture illegal, but those laws have never been properly enforced in the country. The dog meat industry continues to thrive and the officials are reluctant and indifferent to ban it.

Although forbidden to advertise themselves on main streets or in English, over 6,000 restaurants today serve dog meat in South Korea. And they don’t get closed down.

Oh, sorry, except during the 1988 Seoul Olympics and 2002 FIFA Cup when dog meat restaurants were forced to shut down temporarily in fear of bad impressions of South Korea.

Sadly this behavior is true in much of Asia.  And just like in Korea, China also stopped serving dog and cat meat just long enough to appease the International Olympic Committee…

And not only is eating domesticated animals repugnant, but the way they are killed and treated before hand is inexcusable!!  Please sign the petition!!

I for one hope they throw the book at her.  If  a 75-year-old woman is strong enough and mean enough to beat an animal to death, she is either tough enough to do jail time or crazy enough to be put away!  JOMP~

Police Dog Killer Gets Life Without Parole

(Vancouver, Washington (May 20th, 2009) – A man who shot and killed a police dog in October 2007 has been sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole by Clark County Superior Court in Vancouver, Washington.

Police DogThe man’s previous convictions of the second-degree murder of a drug dealer and second-degree assault contributed to the triggering of Washington’s “Three-Strike” rule (formally known as the “Persistent Offenders Accountability Act”), which imposes sentences of life imprisonment for repeat offenders. Harming or killing a police dog is a class C felony, which does not count towards this act, but prosecutors charged him with a firearms crime.

Ronald Chenette was chased by a police SWAT and K-9 units in October 2007 after a friend notified them that he had been drinking and was carrying a hand-gun. In the pursuit, Chenette shot one of the dogs in the head, before being brought to a halt by a second dog. According to the Seattle Times, Chenette told the judge that he wished he’s killed the second dog.

His lawyer told the court that Chenette was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2000 and that he had not been taking his medication prior to the incident. He also expressed hope that the case would get society to consider how mentally ill people are supported.

This really is a mixed bag…   Animals Rights, stricter sentencing for offences agaist Animals, treatment for the Mentally Ill,  protection for the Mentally Ill, responsibility for ones actions, drug dealers, and the list goes on…     It is perhaps a perfect case to revisit our thinking and our laws?
