However, among those who produce, sell, or consume dog meat, no one is ever punished due to the government's ignorance. The number of farms that systematically breed and raise dogs for meat reaches up to 3,000, and a million dogs are killed each and every year. South Korean dog meat trade that raises, slaughters, distributes, and slaughters dogs - legally recognized as companion animal - is persisting by either breaking or staying outside the country's legal system.
In 2018, the Year of Golden Dog, the government should come forward. Its long time, irresponsible excuse that there is no social consensus on the issue has already been proven wrong by the recent poll results announced by Last Chance for Animals(LCA) and ALW. Less then 2 out of 10 South Koreans eat dog meat, and those who are against the brutal practice reaches 46.6% of the whole population. This is more than twice higher than the percentage of those who agrees with the practice(18.5%).
In 2018, the Year of Golden Dogs, they need us to speak for themselves.
