In an effort to stop some animals from being cooked into food, a Seoul city councilperson is pushing to ban the consumption of dog meat. South Korea is notorious for its dog meat consumption, even though only a small population of people eat it.
Councilperson Yang Min-gyu’s proposed bill includes a long-term plan to ban dog meat consumption, according to Korea Bizwire.
In 2018, South Korea actually banned the farming of dogs for meat as part of its Animal Protection Law. However, it hasn’t officially banned consuming dog meat. The proposed bill would ban not only killing dogs for food but eating them as well.

People around the world, including in Afghanistan, Kabul, and South Korea among other countries, are speaking up for animals in need and being the voice for the voiceless.
To reduce the number of suffering dogs on the streets and dogs who are euthanized, it’s important to adopt instead of shop for a dog. Familiarize yourself with tips for adopting so you’re well prepared and familiarize yourself with things to consider before adopting.
