WSPA – campaign against the trading with dog meat!
Dear animal friends,
as you know, the Pfotenhilfe Europa usually applies to animal protection in Europe.
But again and again we receive horrible messages from all over the world, which touch our hearts and make us feel sad.
That is why we don’t want to miss to advert to a very important campaign of the WSPA, which is dedicated to the trading with dog meat in Asia.
According to WSPA, about 2 million dogs are bred and slaughtered in South Korea every year. Just because of their meat.
These dogs live and die under terrible circumstances. Due to the fact that dogs aren’t classified farm animals, the trade with their meat is legally forbidden. Anyhow, the consumption is tolerated. By now there are not only small farmyards, but large companies from industrial size, which got wind of a very profitable business.
The lobbyists even go further. They arrogate the legalization of the trading with dog meat. The opposite is a recently made opinion poll of the population of South Korea. The result shows that the consumption of dog meat loses popularity.
Please support the campaign of the WSPA, which arrogates a general prohibit of the trading and consumption with dog meat!
If this would be legalized, it would be a dangerous precedent for Asia and the rest of the world. Please become active now!
