On March 24th 2016, CARE received a photo. It reminded us of a photo that we had seen earlier that year of Hodu, the dog who was rescued in Kimhae with a fishing line tied around his snout. We were hoping that this was just a late report of the same case, but to our dismay it was not. The photo showed a completely different situation from that of Hodu, and looked just as painful.
CARE’s rescue team was shocked that yet another case like this had occurred. The dog in the photo was severely emaciated, probably due to his inability to use his mouth, and appeared to be in a much worse condition than Hodu.
CARE rushed to his rescue immediately, only to find that the dog was nowhere to be found. However, shortly after we were able to talk to the owner and inflictor who confirmed that the dog, Jjongi had been tied up for one week. Jjongi was on the verge of fainting any second, and we knew we had to find him so we began a search. The dog was found in a field 1km from the town. Just as he was about to give up on his life forever, we found him and brought him to safety.
