The perpetrator tied a rubber band around his dog’s mouth as a form of discipline and left him to suffer. As a result, the court fined him 500,000 KRW (approx. 500 USD).
Although the punishment was much less than animal activists had hoped, we believe they had to factor in the owner’s age (87) when making their decision.
CARE will fight against cases like this until the justice system improves for the animals of Korea.
