There are shelters on the ground rescuing dogs and cats from these horrors so please DONATE to the fundraiser in my @a_lallie bio so that we can get funding to the rescued animals. Thank you 💕🐾 .
Every year the world focuses on the 10,000 dogs and cats tortured and killed for the #YulinFestival in China but there's always media silence when it comes to 1,000,000 dogs and cats tortured and killed for #BokNal in South Korea.
Let's get people talking about BokNal. Let's get people researching it. Let's create some outrage as Korea actually farms dogs and cats for their meat and as with #Yulin they are also caged, beaten, electrocuted, hung, boiled alive, mutilated alive, blowtorched alive, skinned alive but the difference is they typically suffer in silence 😿💔 .
The famous phrase the 'Dog Days of Summer' simply means the hottest days of the year but in South Korea, they take the phrase literally and actually eat dogs on those days.
The people who consume #DogMeat over the #BokDays (beginning 12th July 2017) mainly eat #Boshintang (Dog Meat Soup) as they believe it cools down the hot sun and cools down their body while also 'enhancing virility in the oppressive heat'. They also kill dogs to make 'dog juice' called 'Gaesoju', which they believe rejuvenates the body. All of these beliefs are deeply rooted in superstition and myth and have no medical or scientific basis whatsoever.
