END DOG MEAT TRADE: BOYCOTT WINTER OLYMPICS
South Korea is the only country in the world known to intensively breed dogs for human consumption. Thousands of dog meat farms across the country breed an estimated 2.5 million dogs each year who are confined in small, barren cages outdoors. They live in states of perpetual fear, boredom, hunger and disease, often resulting in self-mutilation. For those who survive, their fate is a brutal death at one of the nation’s markets or slaughterhouses.
A declawed sun bear has allegedly been forced to spend 10 years of his life in a tiny cage out of public view at a zoo in Thailand. He has shown signs of distress and depression. Sign this petition to demand that he be relocated to a wildlife sanctuary.
