A man cracks a whip over the poor black horse, forcing it to pull a heavy steel tourist carriage along the road near Muchangpo Beach, a famous tourist spot. As the horse pulls however, we can see that it is limping, clearly favoring one leg. There is a lump under its right elbow joint. The loud music blocks the moans the horse makes to advertise its pain. The horse slows a little and the man cracks the whip again.
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.
The man who tortured a cat with boiling water and hot pokers, left it suffering in agony unable to eat or drink for 5 days, and then fed it alive to his dogs, was sentenced on May 2nd, 2017 at a court in South Chungcheon province, South Korea.
We received a report on the evening of the 24th April that an apartment building security guard in Dongdaemoon-gu, Seoul, had buried a cat alive.
After emergency operations on his broken left leg and joint, and broken ribs, and to repair the punctured lung caused by the awful abuse he received, Hope—the Spitz puppy thrown out in a garbage bag—is recovering well and breathing more easily.
