Dog meat trade in Asian territories is one of the horrors that domestic canines face in countries like China and South Korea. Despite the efforts of animal advocates in fighting this culture, many dogs still fall victim to the brutal slaughter and unmerciful killings every year.
Animal rescue groups and even some of the Asian organizations are actually continuing their efforts to put a stop to the sickening tradition. However, it seems the fight is not over yet and we would have to wait a little more before the Asian dog meat trade totally ceases operation.
But fortunately, many canines have been recovered in the recent mission of the Humane Society International in July this year. As per a report by the HSI, around 200 dogs were freed from being slaughtered in South Korea. The animals were transported to the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada to find new homes.
One of the lucky survivors is Harriet, a three-year-old Korean Jindo who boarded the plane en route to San Francisco. But even if her new location is miles away from South Korea, it appears that the dog can still feel the horror of her former life.
Harriet, along with 200 more canines, suffered a harrowing fate in a Korean dog meat farm. According to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay marketing coordinator Nash McCutchen, where the dog was from was a “terrible existence.”
In South Korea, the canines were put in a cage, all crammed inside, as the meat farm seemingly doesn’t have enough cages for the many dogs. So the animals were sandwiched with each other in a dirty kennel where they step on their own filth.
The dogs were given food, not because the people care about their well being but because they need to fatten the animals for bigger and heavier dog meat. The poor canines had no beds where they can rest for the night as well.
