Dog farmers protest proposed ban on dog meat

Dog farmers in South Korea organized a protest against the government’s move to ban dog meat consumption, in Seoul on Nov. 30.

Hundreds of South Korean dog meat farmers and traders gathered near the presidential office to protest against the government’s move to ban dog meat consumption.

The consumption and sale of dog meat are neither explicitly prohibited nor legalized in South Korea. 

The dog farmers point out that the proposed legislation demanding a phase-out plan to close their operations by 2027 is not feasible for many who have been in the trade for generations.
