Anger as President forces citizens to give up pet dogs as meat for restaurants

The North Korean Government is now forcing its citizens to submit their pet dogs so they can be used as food.

The pet dogs are slaughtered in restaurants and used as dog meat while others are deposited to the National Zoo, Sky News reports.

North Korean Supreme Leader, Kim Jong Un is said to have embarked on the move amid shortage of food in the country.

While ordinary people rear pigs and other livestock, pet dogs are owned mostly by the elite and wealthy in the country’s capital city of Pyongyang.

The President had in July 2020 issued a ban on pet ownership, denouncing it as “a tainted trend by bourgeois ideology.”

Sky News quoted a source as saying that the pet owners are “cursing Kim Jong Un behind his back,” but there is little they can do.

The source said, “Ordinary people raise pigs and livestock on their porches, but high-ranking officials and the wealthy own pet dogs, which stoked some resentment.

Using dogs as meal is a popular tradition in China and on the Korean Peninsula.
