North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un has made a statement encouraging North Koreans to consume more dog meat. He believes that dog meat, known as “dangogi” in Korean, contains more vitamins than other animals. He also calls dog meat “stamina food”, which couldn’t be farther from the truth. The Korea Times also suggests that dog meat is good for the intestines and stomach, which is completely inaccurate.
Kim Jong-un seems to be going against the values of the western world to get a rise from animal lovers due to the heavy backlash and outcry against the Yulin & Boknal dog meat festivals held every year throughout Asia.
A story on Korean Central Television claimed that a dog meat “dangogi” restaurant in Pyongyang, Korea is “successful in making dog meat more unique,” another sick claim that has no place in our humane society or anywhere else in the world.
Note that the Korean Central Television network is state-funded and run by the North Korean government. The information they report is extremely biased and slanted in order to make their case appear to be as fact, although it is indeed fiction.
