    Doomed Dogs Taste of Freedom, Get New Leash on Life

    Canines Bred To Be Eaten Are Rescued From Dog Meat Farm, Given New Lives in US

    Twenty-three canines from a dog meat farm outside of Seoul, South Korea, who spent most of their lives in cages, bred to be consumed, were rescued by the Humane Society International (HSI) earlier this month, and are now destined for new lives in the U.S.

    HSI convinced the owner of the farm, Moon Suk Jung, to relinquish the pups and give up the dog meat trade entirely, in exchange for $2,500 to start a blueberry farm.

    Glad to hear it and they are cute looking, but where's Sarah Palin's outrage over this dog meat farm???
    This is the year to locate Mark Dribin http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ht=Mark+Dribin NamUs MP#876 and Ilene Misheloff http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...lene+Misheloff NamUs MP#6410 and bring them home to their families!

    Parents watch your children. Free-range parenting leads to more child victims.

    Cruelty to humans begins with cruelty to animals.

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I'm so glad they saved the dogs and they sure are cute. I hope they have some socialization and that they are not feral. I fostered one of 3 sister semi-feral pit bull mixes and she just couldn't adjust to the requirements for being an ordinary house dog. She was moved to the feral pack at the Devoted Barn and at 15 months is still there and still not ready for adoption. Her 2 sisters are both in foster homes and also aren't ready yet to be ordinary dogs. They are very fearful and timid. The one I had was aggressive and a biter. If a dog isn't socialized as a puppy, it's hard to make up for it later and have a well balanced dog. The pups in the pictures looked friendly though, so hopefully they will make good pets. I think it is terrible that anyone would raise them for food! How much more lacking in compassion could a person be?!

    Yeah, they looked totally friendly and huggable. I;m not worried that they lack socialization.

    I still don;t get how humans can eat animals who have totally evolved to be our devoted companions. Plus, they are not herd animals. It's just weird. Most cultures do not eat meat-eating animals for the most part.
    For Elizabeth, a minor child, a victim. Thank God she is home!
