KIM Jong-un has ordered pet dogs to be confiscated so their meat can be sent to restaurants, according to reports.
The move by the leader Kim Jong-un is thought to be a aimed at dealing with food shortages and also because he believes pooches represent Western “decadence”. SERIOUSLY!
Dog meat is popular in parts of China and on the Korean Peninsula, although consumption is on the decline in South Korea.
A source quoted by Chosun Ilbo said some of the dogs are being sent to restaurants.
Ordinary people raise pigs and livestock on their porches, but high-ranking officials and the wealthy own pet dogs, which stoked some resentment.
Which I’m not surprised to hear.
Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down.
Some dog owners have even expressed concerns about the motives behind the order, which was issued last month. He is a mad man.
There is a food shortage due to a lack of rice, corn, fruit, meat and fish. Because Kim refuses to deal with any importation of food.
They have been “cursing Kim Jong-um behind his back,” the source said, but admitted their hands are tied.
In 2018, it was noted that consumption of dog meat had increased in North Korea during the summer heat.
Last week, Kim said he would refuse outside aid to help North Korea deal with the coronavirus. What an ASS.
Pet ownership used to be viewed as western decadence by the North Korean authorities.
But attitudes appear to have relaxed when the North hosted the World Festival of Youth and Students in 1989.
After that, the Pyongyang elite started flaunting expensive dogs as status symbols. But now restaurant visitors in North Korea can visit their local restaurants and order Dog fried rice (sickening).
According to a South Korean newspaper, a source told Chosun Ilbo’s English edition that Kim believes dogs are “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeois ideology.”
Ordinary people raise pigs and livestock on their porches, but high-ranking officials and the wealthy own pet dogs, which stoked some resentment,” the source said.
“Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down.”
There is absolutely no way of stopping this man’s actions. He is an embarrassment to the North Korean’s, who for some reason, seem to cherish this man (in public anyway). Surely another nation would have the decency to step in and make Kim Jong-um question his actions.
On A Lighter Note
I know it sounds like something out of a Quentin Tarantino movie. Rumours are flying that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his uncle, Jang Song Thaek, and five aides executed by being stripped naked and placed in a cage with 120 attack dogs.
This is all according to Singapore’s Straits. Which quotes a 12th of December story in the Chinese government-controlled paper Wen Wei Po.
“The horrifying report vividly depicted the brutality of the young North Korean leader,” Ching Cheong writes in the Times. “The fact that it appeared in a Beijing-controlled newspaper showed that China no longer cares about its relations with the Kim regime.
“The thing about North Korea is that it’s so mad, so gruesome that it’s difficult not to believe whatever tall story you hear about it,” he writes. “Kim Jong Un ate a baby? The army uses kittens for target practice? Kim Jong Il’s reanimated corpse stalks the countryside scaring children? It all seems possible. “He warns that it’s important to look at the agendas of the people who are spreading this story:
Is this what dictatorship is all about?
