• The newly elected President of South Korea sheltered dog
On Wednesday, July 26, unhappy dog from South Korea found a home. And the house is very well-known address.
The newly elected president of the Korean Mun Jae Ying took from a shelter dog named Tori, rescued a dog farm, thereby giving hope animal lovers throughout the world.
Tori - four-dog of mixed breed, which saved the farm for the breeding of dogs two years ago. It was difficult to find a house because of local prejudice against dark wool. And now the Tories would be the "first" dog in the country.
The Tories will not be alone in his "political office". Along with him his share ten-Maru dog breed pungsan, and taken from a shelter cat Jing-jing.
The adoption of dogs from a shelter is in sharp contrast with what made the previous President Park Geun-hye, renounced his nine dogs Jindi after the scandalous resignation of.
Sadly, the refusal of the animals - a widespread phenomenon in Korea. "Every year, Koreans refuse to 300 thousand animals" - was written on the official website of the President to Facebook. "We need to pay attention to this." With the adoption of Tory animal rights activists hope for the fulfillment of the other election promises Mun Jae Ying. For example, the obligation to build playgrounds and places for animals to feed stray cats.
During the campaign in early 2017 Moon Jae Ying promised to make South Korea are better for people and animals. However, he did not promise to completely stop the trade in dog meat.
In some areas of the South Korean people believe that properly cooked dog meat has special healing properties. Currently, there are no laws restricting the breeding of dogs on the farm and use them for food. The country has about 17 thousand dog farms, where each year are killed by 2, 5 to 10 million dogs.
The act of the new president can help to change the attitude of Koreans to stray dogs.
