In early May 2005, Hae-tal became a member of Hansun Seo’s family. However, in the late evening of February 21st 2015, Hae-tal was savagely beaten by a neighbor for no discernible reason. He died shortly after.
In April, we had a call to attend animal abuse near Buyeo, a town in Chungnam Province, South Korea. A large black dog was being transported in the back of a truck with a professional dog catcher’s noose around its neck. The dog’s head, face and mouth were bleeding heavily and he looked as though he had been beaten with a blunt object.
