Buzz Petition

The Olympic Games bring together all nations of the world, proudly showcasing the strongest, most talented athletes from each country.  However, this year’s games in Pyeongchang, South Korea has an element of controversy to it. As fans cheer on their favorite athletes from the sidelines or huddled around their TVs at home, restaurants just outside the Olympic Village are serving up dog meat.

Worried about the country being scrutinized for the highly-criticized practice, these restaurants were told to alter their menus to cater to an international crowd, but dog meat is still being served. The issues surrounding the dog meat trade go far beyond a difference of beliefs. The corrupt trade is largely fueled by stolen pets, and the health and well-being of the animals go unregulated, causing high rates of infections of deadly diseases, like rabies, to humans and animals alike.

A petition has been set up on Care2 calling on the corporate sponsors of the Olympic Games, namely, Coca-Cola, Visa, and Swatch/Omega, to take a stand against the brutal trade. Millions of dogs are killed in the South Korean dog meat trade alone, and it cannot continue to be ignored. Please take a moment to sign the petition here.

Many people are entirely unaware of the dog meat trade, so make sure you spread awareness by sharing this with your network!
