Korea: world cup venue

With the football championships due to be played in Korea later this year, this is an opportune time to let the authorities there know what we think of their horrendous dog-meat and live-animal markets.  Mrs Sheila Brennan of Blackburn wrote to the tourist office and received a helpful reply.  In a stomach-churning report last November in the Financial Times, according to the Korean Animals Protection Society, two million dogs and cats each year are electrocuted, strangled, bludgeoned, blow-torched, throttled and skinned to death, or just boiled alive - for food.  Catholic priests condone the practice, according to one vet there, because they had survived on dog meat during persecution.  Dogs are eaten and cats [made into soup] drunk in Cambodia, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.  There are laws prohibiting dog meat, but they are not enforced.

In the UK, write to Nigel Lloyd, Marketing Manager, Korean National Tourism Organisation, 3rd Floor, New Zealand House, Haymarket, London SW1Y 4TE

Look up the web site for the Korean Animals Protection Society for further details of what you can do.
