Did you know that dogs in the dog meat farm NOT ONLY suffer from living in rusty, crowded cages, BUT they are fed with awful food scrap?
The truth has been revealed that these dogs’ foods come from human food waste. Another shocking fact is that, 27 of 33 food waste treatment plants in Korea were identified as dog meat farms. This means that all the food wastes that we dispose out go straight to our poor dogs in the farms.
The dogs are fed rotten food scrap with bacteria and are marketed as ‘nutritious’. In particular, the food scrap provided to puppies was mostly in the form of wet feed without any dehydration process.
In addition, there are very serious hygiene issues. This may cause an outbreak of infectious diseases because the food scrap that the dogs consume is wet and found to include other animals’ parts such as poultry intestines.
As of 2016, 43% of food waste has been consumed as livestock feed. However, the Ministry of Environment has pointed out that it is difficult to completely treat food scrap without the presence of dog farms. The Ministry of Environment, which is planning to take measures, also said that they are still unable to find any alternatives of dog farms for their food waste solutions.
Statistically, in South Korea, there are over 781,000 dogs in dog meat farms and more than 90% of the dogs are being fed with rotten food scrap.
Together, we can end this cruel practice!
