The market reportedly sells 80,000 dogs (alive or dead) each year

Moran Market opened in the 1960s.

Animal rights activists have fought to end the controversial practice of butchering and slaughtering dogs for food in markets through online petitions and protests. Their efforts have not gone to waste, as the largest dog meat market in South Korea is closing down its slaughter facilities.

Moran Market, located in Seongnam, is notorious for lining up cages full of dogs waiting to be purchased for slaughter.

As early as next week, the facilities of the market’s 22 dog meat vendors will be confiscated, The Independent reported.

This is a great achievement for animal welfare groups; however, animal rights activists are still pushing for a nationwide ban on the selling of dog meat.

"Seongnam city took a big step toward changing the dog meat industry here,” Jang In-young, an official at Korean Animal Welfare Association, told The Independent.

“But we will have to constantly monitor dog meat shops in the market to see if they really stop slaughtering dogs and change their business.”


Mirror ends dog market slaughter in Korea as largest and most notorious is shut down

The market, which supplies about a third of the country's dog meat, has been closed after our undercover investigation exposed the horrific of conditions of dogs being held in cages and slaughtered to eat

The slaughter of dogs in South Korea’s largest dog meat market has been banned – after the Mirror exposed the cruelty behind the trade .

Our investigators went undercover at the Moran and Busan markets to reveal distressing conditions of hundreds of dogs in cages, bred and butchered for their meat.

Moran is the largest and most notorious dog meat market, supplying about a third of the country’s dog meat.

As part of a landmark deal, government officials in the city of Seongnam confirmed dog slaughter facilities and cages will be removed at Moran as early as next week, with full dismantling complete by May.

More than 2.5 million dogs are bred every year on 17,000 farms in South Korea. Their sole purpose is to end up as dog meat in the largely unregulated industry.

It is estimated, since opening in the 1960s, more than 4 million dogs have been sold dead or alive at Moran market alone.

Seongnam Mayor Lee Jae-myung quoted Gandhi when commenting the move to ban the dog meat trade is not only about animal welfare, but the reputation of both the city and South Korea as a whole.

He said: “We will take the initiative to transform South Korea’s image since ‘the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated’.”

Wendy Higgins of Humane Society International, said: “With other Korean animal groups we have met with Moran dog traders numerous times, so it is potentially momentous that an agreement has been reached between the mayor and dog traders to work towards closing it down.

“The ultimate goal though is to stop the dog meat trade in Moran market completely, including the sale of dog meat.

“Together with our partners KARA, we will monitor the situation on the ground and offer our advice and expertise to the city authorities in what we hope will be full consultation with HSI and others who have fought so hard to end this industry.

“This is just the first step, but a potentially very significant one indeed, possibly even a game changer in our ongoing campaign to see and end to the dog meat trade in South Korea.”

While welcoming the change, the Korean Animal Welfare Association is concerned it might not be fully implemented.

The association said: “We will have to constantly monitor dog meat shops in the market to see if they really stop slaughtering dogs, and the city government will also need to keep pushing the idea to ultimately ban the sales of dog meat here.”

Animal welfare group In Defense of Animals also welcomed the deal but said they too would monitor the situation.

The US based group’s President, Dr. Marilyn Kroplick said: “We thank city officials for taking a humane position. But we expect the dog butchers to set up their dirty business elsewhere, so we’ll remain vigilant and won’t rest until we take dog meat off the menu for good.”

The Mirror was praised for exposing the cruelty of the trade and giving readers the chance to provide a home to six dogs we saved from the hell of a squalid farm.

Comedian Ricky Gervais , who has used his international fame to protest against animal cruelty, said: “I am really glad the Daily Mirror is taking on this issue which, as a dog lover, I care so deeply about.”]

Readers raise £4,600 to save dogs

Generous Daily Mirror readers have raised more than £4,600 to save dogs destined for the slaughterhouse in South Korea.

As part of our world exclusive report from South Korea, we found 200 animals kept in filthy conditions at a farm in Gangwon province, about 100 miles east of the capital Seoul.

The charity Humane Society International (HSI) is working to save the pups bred for their meat, to give them a loving home away from the horror of the farm.

Money raised from donations will go towards rescuing six dogs due to come to the UK in January. Mirror readers will have the chance to adopt one from next month.

Wendy Higgins from His said: “We are so grateful to Daily Mirror readers for donating but more must be done to save these dogs from the hell of the dog meat trade.

“Every time HSI closes down a dog meat farm, and rescues the sick and frightened dogs we find there, we know only too well that every single one of them was intended to end their days in a market like Moran, most likely electrocuted before being butchered.

“It’s such a brutal end to a miserable life.

“Every little helps and goes towards rescuing dogs like these from farms across South Korea.”

If you feel you can give one of these rescue dogs a loving forever home then, to be considered, contact All Dogs Matter at: alldogsmatter.co.uk/adopt-a-dog/

Wendy Higgins from His said: “We are so grateful to Daily Mirror readers for donating but more must be done to save these dogs from the hell of the dog meat trade.

“Every time HSI closes down a dog meat farm, and rescues the sick and frightened dogs we find there, we know only too well that every single one of them was intended to end their days in a market like Moran, most likely electrocuted before being butchered.

“It’s such a brutal end to a miserable life.

“Every little helps and goes towards rescuing dogs like these from farms across South Korea.”

If you feel you can give one of these rescue dogs a loving forever home then, to be considered, contact All Dogs Matter at: alldogsmatter.co.uk/adopt-a-dog/

Mirror ends dog market slaughter in Korea as largest and most notorious is shut down

The market, which supplies about a third of the country's dog meat, has been closed after our undercover investigation exposed the horrific of conditions of dogs being held in cages and slaughtered to eat

The slaughter of dogs in South Korea’s largest dog meat market has been banned – after the Mirror exposed the cruelty behind the trade .

Our investigators went undercover at the Moran and Busan markets to reveal distressing conditions of hundreds of dogs in cages, bred and butchered for their meat.

Moran is the largest and most notorious dog meat market, supplying about a third of the country’s dog meat.

As part of a landmark deal, government officials in the city of Seongnam confirmed dog slaughter facilities and cages will be removed at Moran as early as next week, with full dismantling complete by May.

More than 2.5 million dogs are bred every year on 17,000 farms in South Korea. Their sole purpose is to end up as dog meat in the largely unregulated industry.

It is estimated, since opening in the 1960s, more than 4 million dogs have been sold dead or alive at Moran market alone.

Seongnam Mayor Lee Jae-myung quoted Gandhi when commenting the move to ban the dog meat trade is not only about animal welfare, but the reputation of both the city and South Korea as a whole.

He said: “We will take the initiative to transform South Korea’s image since ‘the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated’.”

Wendy Higgins of Humane Society International, said: “With other Korean animal groups we have met with Moran dog traders numerous times, so it is potentially momentous that an agreement has been reached between the mayor and dog traders to work towards closing it down.

“The ultimate goal though is to stop the dog meat trade in Moran market completely, including the sale of dog meat.

“Together with our partners KARA, we will monitor the situation on the ground and offer our advice and expertise to the city authorities in what we hope will be full consultation with HSI and others who have fought so hard to end this industry.

“This is just the first step, but a potentially very significant one indeed, possibly even a game changer in our ongoing campaign to see and end to the dog meat trade in South Korea.”

While welcoming the change, the Korean Animal Welfare Association is concerned it might not be fully implemented.

The association said: “We will have to constantly monitor dog meat shops in the market to see if they really stop slaughtering dogs, and the city government will also need to keep pushing the idea to ultimately ban the sales of dog meat here.”

Animal welfare group In Defense of Animals also welcomed the deal but said they too would monitor the situation.

The US based group’s President, Dr. Marilyn Kroplick said: “We thank city officials for taking a humane position. But we expect the dog butchers to set up their dirty business elsewhere, so we’ll remain vigilant and won’t rest until we take dog meat off the menu for good.”

The Mirror was praised for exposing the cruelty of the trade and giving readers the chance to provide a home to six dogs we saved from the hell of a squalid farm.

Comedian Ricky Gervais , who has used his international fame to protest against animal cruelty, said: “I am really glad the Daily Mirror is taking on this issue which, as a dog lover, I care so deeply about.”]

Readers raise £4,600 to save dogs

Generous Daily Mirror readers have raised more than £4,600 to save dogs destined for the slaughterhouse in South Korea.
