Sample Letter for you to cut and paste
Humane people worldwide in their millions are shocked and speechless over the horrors inflicted on dogs in the meat trade in Korea. It is also well known that these dogs endure agony that no living being ever should. Cruel confinement and Various methods of slaughter are used on the dogs totally void of compassion, unbecoming of humankind. In the worst cases they are beaten to death slowly and deliberately to soften their flesh while keeping the head intact in order to soften the meat. Can anyone in Korea be this hungry? There is no word in any world language that can adequately describe this kind of horror.
Is this the way Korea repays dogs well known for their love, affection, loyalty and ALTRUISM to our fellow Human Beings? Is greater treachery of friends possible?
Modern technology is bringing the world closer and the unbelievable atrocities committed against Dogs in Korea is reaching more and more people worldwide. Apart from the brutalization of the dogs, even in the absence of compassion, would one still want Korea to become known as the land that brutalizes the vulnerable and the defenseless to the maximum.
When I see this kind of malevolence on the helpless dogs, I am embarrassed to be called human. I have no doubt that many Koreans feel the same.
We are hopeful that compassion will prevail over grievous and rampant injustice to dogs in Korea and that you will take steps to bring this to an end.
