Cheong Wa Dae considering legal revision to prohibit dog slaughter

 "가축서 개 제외토록 규정 정비··· 식용금지 논의도 적극 참여"

Cheong Wa Dae considering legal revision to prohibit dog slaughter

 

Choi Jae Kwan, a senior secretary to President Moon Jae In for agricultural and fishery issues, said the government may consider revising the law on domestic animals to remove dogs from the list of livestock.  However prohibiting the consumption of dog meat altogether may require more time and discussions.

 

The remarks came in response to a public petition posted on the Cheong Wa Dae website, seeking to prohibit the consumption of dog meat. The presidential office offers direct answers to petitions that more than 200,000 Internet users agree to in less than a month.

 

Choi highlighted that removing dogs from the list of livestock may be in line with a change in the attitudes toward the animals. He noted in 2004 nearly 9 out of every 10 South Koreans surveyed had been against a sales ban on dog meat, but in 2018, only 18.5% of those surveyed were in favor of eating dog meat.

 

Still, Choi said prohibiting the consumption of dog meat was a different issue, noting 51.5% of respondents in a recent survey were against the idea, while only 39.7% were in favor of such a ban.

 

Choi also added such changes must consider the livelihoods of people engaged in the related business.
