The Yulin dog meat festival has just passed, and now Korea is gearing up for Sambok/Boknal which means “three dog meat eating days.” This slaughter is another «tradition» that concocts an excuse to eat dog and cat meat. This ‘festival’ is touted as a means to ‘fight the heat during the summer.’ Why are dogs eaten then? Because according to the website Life In Korea, this time period is known throughout the region as the «dog days of summer.» Hence, it appears as if many people in South Korea believe that boiling, butchering, torturing and eating dog and cat meat will lower the temperature of their country. The only thing that is guaranteed to ‘heat up’ are the voices in protest against this abhorrent ‘tradition.’ The dates for this country’s slaughter are based on the lunar calendar and they are on July 13, 23, and August 1 this year.
