WAN recently covered the protest against the dreaded Yulin Dog Meat Festival that took place last month. We recently learned that another one of these heinous events is near, this time it’s The Bok Nal Dog Meat Festival that takes place in South Korea.
It is paramount that we do everything in our power to stop these events and ban them for good worldwide.
Join Last Chance For Animals on July 17th, where marches will be taking place in Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Seoul South Korea. The first day of The Bok Nal Dog Meat Festival is also July 17th, making this protest even more important to attend. The festival will be held on three separate calendar days that mark the hottest days of the Summer.
WAN is horrified that dogs are recognized as livestock by South Korea’s Livestock Industry Act, allowing farms to breed, torture, and kill them on industrialized farms where a million dogs are brutally slaughtered each year. We must put an end to this immediately!
For protest information and to RSVP, please visit Last Chance For Animal’s website Here: www.lcanimal.org
