…though of course, less cuddly animals will still find themselves on the nation’s menus. Anyway, here’s the report:
The South Korean Government recently made headlines with the announcement that they would be banning the import of cruelly-poached animals, including dolphins caught in the infamous Taiji Cove. And the good news has not stopped there — the South Korean Government has set a new amendment bill that will cover animal rights!
Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE) had been pressuring the South Korean Government to address animal welfare issues, like the dog meat trade, and garnered “countless” petition signatures from concerned citizens in support of change. CARE explainsSouth Korea’s new amendment bill as such: “The amendment bill includes a clause that gives provision to establish a policy for the protection of animal rights.”
