A report came in from a factory area in Asan City, South Chungcheong province. There were two dogs wandering the street, but the face of one seemed to be peeling and red.
Abandoned & Stray Animals
On a day of heavy rain about three years ago, our informant was passing an area with many large warehouses, and found a mother dog and six puppies crouching under the eaves of a warehouse. The mother dog was staring at the informant with caution and was very skinny and looked exhausted as she continued to breastfeed the puppies.
Late one night we got a report of a kitten trapped inside a median strip barrier of a bus stop at Hapjeong Station junction. The median sits in the middle of a busy four-lane road. It must have been difficult for the kitten to cross the road, and understandable for it to take cover inside the median barrier.
A driver about to get onto the Gyeongbu Expressway to Busan saw a white dog near the entrance of the highway. Limping, the dog was criss-crossing in front of the cars as if signalling that it needed help. If the driver had not seen Becky or had simply driven on uncaring, we would never have known what happened to Becky and Kory.
There were some feral dogs in a village in Nokbun-dong, near Bukhan Mountain in Seoul, living peacefully without hurting anyone; animals or people. They were co-existing with the villagers, with some providing food and water. Some residents even regarded them as protecting the village from wild boar.
