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.
CARE and a KBS TV film crew went to the home of Mr. Lim Jeong Pil, the scene of the cat torturing incident that took place last Lunar New Year holiday. We discovered, however, that the truth of this crime was much worse than was reported on the news.
