一人ㄧ信 救救韓國狗

一人一封信 阻止韓國開放吃狗肉

聯合更新日期:2008/04/09 08:00 記者朱淑娟台北報導

「我不好吃、請不要吃我!」韓國首爾市日前宣布要把狗列為「食用家畜」,讓吃狗肉合法化。台灣、韓國環保團體昨天聯手痛批韓國是「亞洲最不文明的國家」,將串聯亞洲各國一人一信阻止野蠻立法。

台灣動物社會研究會執行長朱增宏說,首爾政府合法化吃狗表面上的理由是基於衛生管理。但他認為這只是藉口,首爾政府要先檢討是否落實衛生管理。他呼籲韓國總統李明博不要做「不文明的總統」。

朱增宏說,人類無論如何不應將狗視為可以吃的動物,包括台灣、香港等地都已禁止吃狗肉,已擁有經濟優勢的南韓還將吃狗合法化,令人匪夷所思。

韓國長久以來有吃狗肉的習慣,政府放任肉狗飼養場以不人道的方式養狗、殺狗、市場上光天化日賣血淋淋的狗。環保團體昨天公布錄影帶,肉狗飼養場環境髒亂,狗只能擠在非常小的空間埵Y廚餘、發霉的麵包,母狗被強迫配種兩、三胎後就被屠宰,慘不忍睹。

韓國維護地球動物協會代表朴素妍昨天氣憤表示,李明博上台後面對狗肉問題,「退化到未開化的原始時代」。韓國現有一千萬人口飼養狗,如立法成功,未來可能會有更多家犬被棄養,流落到狗肉市場,狗肉市場將更加猖獗。

雖然政府承諾只能吃飼養的肉狗、不會吃寵物,但朴素妍質疑一九八四年首爾市就明訂狗肉是不潔的食物,禁止流通,但政府並未取締不法販狗的業者,任由每年兩百萬隻狗被屠殺。現為了規避責任乾脆把吃狗合法化,「荒謬可惡」。

Dear Mayor Oh Se-hoon (or President Li Ming-Po), 

On the 24th of March this year (2008), Seoul Metropolitan Government announced a “Dog Meat Hygiene Management Policy”, which lists dogs as “livestock.” It is also expected that, that after Korea’s parliamentary elections end in April, and after holding a hearing in May, a proposal will be made immediately to the Central Government to amend the “Livestock Products Processing Act”, officially legislating that dog meat be listed as a livestock product. This announcement resulted in protest demonstration by many Korean animal protection groups in front of Seoul City Hall on March 25th and 26th.  

This is a rather shocking and disturbing news. ’s high tech electronic products are sold throughout the world. The popularity of Korean products, so-called “Korean Wave”, includes all kinds of entertainment, food and tourism industries, have greatly promoted people’s interests in . Your people’s endless efforts have helped to characterize as a country of great culture and originality. However, this legalization that allows people eating dogs would severely damage the relationship between Korean and the international animal-loving community.

People have raised dogs and cats as companions for at least twelve thousand years. In the last 20 or 30 years, “anthrozoology” has gradually come to a consensus that companion animals bring psychological and physical benefits to humans. Companion animal can give humans intimacy and support, alleviate the negative health impacts of stress, and also enhance people’s ability to prevent and resist disease. Modern day Criminal Sociology is also drawing the conclusion that there is a high degree of correlation between cruelty to animals and domestic violence and child abuse.

Many people see dogs as companions. Most dog lovers would agree that no matter what historical or biological background are, dogs are not to be divided into companion dogs and edible dogs. Once dogs become livestock that can be freely butchered for their meat, there will be unimaginable negative social and educational impacts on public psychology. Republic of (), Hong Kong, and have all already legally banned the consumption of dog meat. Unfortunately, there are still a few countries in Asia that their people still consume dog meat. However, their living standards are, on average, far below from Korean people. Even so, there has never been a country in the world that legalizes the act of eating dog meat through national law.

This legalization to see dogs as the “livestock” will not only make Korea the first country in the world to legalize dog meat consumption, but also the first nation in the history of all civilization to list dogs as “animals for consumption”! This senseless movement will be a big step backward in the animal rights development efforts worldwide. It will also bring a great deal of negative impacts to as people’s perception of Korean value, culture and creativity will no longer be the same. The worst scenario is that animal lover and animal rights supporters may boycott Korean products worldwide, and the disastrous outcomes are immeasurable.

In order to create a more humane society, and for the sake of the sustainability of human civilization, we, citizens of this planet, suggest with all sincerity that Korea government will under no circumstances to legalize dog meat consumption. It takes great courage for leaders to do right thing and make right decisions, and promoting animal welfare is the right thing to do. We encourage you to stand up to Korean core values and to honor kindness over all lives, especially the most loyal friend to mankind-dogs. Please do not scarify humanity, civilization, and possible ’s foreign trade development for some short-sight reasons. Furthermore, we encourage government to prohibit the consumption of dog meat in the very near future.

 

Sincerely yours, 

Xxxxx (your name)
