Taepyeong Slaughterhouse in Seongnam City, which started in the 1990s, was the largest dog slaughterhouse in South Korea. At least 80,000 dogs every year were brutally slaughtered there, the meat being distributed throughout the country. Today, though, it is finally gone.
CARE visited the Taepyeong dog slaughterhouse on the 15th of August. The dogs rescued from the slaughterhouse at that time were discovered to be infected with Canine Influenza.
CARE and over 20 individual animal rights activists took part in an unplanned protest at Taepyeong Dog Slaughterhouse, where an unimaginable number of dogs are slaughtered every day.
