There is a Korean fable of a winged horse named Chollima
who sped great distances in a day to perform heroic feats in Korea's time of need. If
prevalent dog and cat torture were just a tall tale in a far off land, I
would employ the winged wonder to rescue millions of domestic animal
torture victims from gratuitous brutality; end their eternal Treblinca.
In the Plaza of the Museum of the Korean Revolution
there stands an imposing statute of Chollima. If this winged wonder
mysteriously came to life I imagine her first and foremost act of
heroism would be a swift, steady rescue of every dog and cat hovering in
the backs of stinking marketplaces in South Korea waiting their turn to
be tortured and butchered. She would deliver them from pain and despair
and deal severely with their cruel human captors.
However, this is not just a nightmare which one can
easily awake. Mass persecution of domestic animals in South Korea is something we can no
longer ignore. Why? Because too many of us now know.
