South Korea’s annual “Bok Nal” days are quickly approaching—the hottest part of summer, when more than one million dogs will be slaughtered for human consumption. Typically less than a year old, their lives are cut short after having known nothing but fear and misery on the farms where they were raised solely for this purpose.
Most of those who survive months of suffering in barren cages will be electrocuted. Violently pulled from their cages—in full view of other dogs, their final moments are both terrifying and painful.
With Bok Nal now only weeks away, we must seize the opportunity to shine a spotlight on the brutality of this industry.
