Say, what?


Friday, August 17, 2007


In an effort to get a handle on the growing stray-dog population in New Delhi, one city council member proposed to ship them to Korea where dog meat is widely consumed in soup called boshintang. The soup is believed to boost stamina and virility.

In the Korean dog markets, the canines are jammed in cages to sit in the hot sun, without water (sometimes for days), before they are chosen by a restaurateur and cruelly put to death.

This inhumane treatment of man's best friend is largely ignored by the rest of the world because most people are insulated from ever seeing such atrocities.

This is why the New Delhi councilman's idea of shipping the dogs to Korea doesn't surprise me. Look how they treat their women.

We can't change the world, but sometimes we can change a small part of it.

This undercover video of a Korean dog market is disturbing. View it with discretion.
