Sharing from Jeong So-hyeon:
The dog farmer casually carries out a small dead puppy, starved to the point where his ribs are showing. He curses at him as if somehow his death was his own fault rather than the result of being fed nothing but rotten and inedible food all of his short life. This is life in a dog farm in Gimpo Aegibong-ro 409 beon-gil 346, where Woody, the mother of the @saebom_house puppies, and their siblings are locked away.
From the outside, it looks like a typical cow barn, but inside, mother dogs that are illegally bred are laying on their stomachs with empty eyes, as if they have abandoned hope long ago. The tent above them is tattered to the point where it provides no protection against the rain or wind. When you enter the building and call out, there is not even a response from the dogs pressed up against the raised cages.
On the right side of the dog farm, with the door closed like a fortress, there are cages lined up vertically and horizontally, full of mothers with wounds all over their bodies but still struggling to somehow comfort their newborn puppies. Five or six puppies are crumpled and howled in each cage.
In the summer of 2022, during the Gimpo and Ganghwa dog farm investigation with ARK119, officials from Gimpo City visited this dog farm accompanied by members of ARK119. It is unknown what administrative measures, if any, were taken by the city. Please help by submitting a civil complaint about this place where illegal breeding, abuses, auctions, and sales are still occurring.
Multiple laws are currently being broken, including Illegal construction, violation of the Waste Disposal Act, violation of the Feed Management Act, violation of the livestock manure facility installation registration requirement, and violation of the Animal Protection Act! If this place is not shut down despite such brazen illegal activities, the administration of Gimpo City will continue to demonstrate that they are a negligent and passive organization.
Our complaint may be nothing more than a small pebble thrown in the water, but we hope that the ripple it causes might save other dogs with no future other than an existence of never-ending suffering, neglect, and indifference. Please be their voice. File the e-People petition today.
