Cats Boiled Alive for ‘Cat Soup’ Deserve Justice


Target: South Korean President Geun-Hye Park and Minister of Justice Kyo-Ahn Hwang

Goal: Ensure that the man accused of boiling 600 live cats is held accountable for his actions.

Busan Bukbu Police arrested 54-year-old “Mr. A” on charges of capturing and slaughtering 600 live stray cats, which is a violation of South Korea’s Animal Protection Act. Mr. A was suspected of capturing the cats by luring them into traps with food and then slaughtering them in a secret, remote location in another province for over a year. The helpless cats were reportedly forced into large containers of boiling water and were essentially cooked to death. Mr. A would remove their fur and sell the organs to a “Health Food Center,” where customers purchased them for supposed health benefits.

During the raid at Mr. A’s slaughterhouse, 18 cats were discovered locked in a crate and waiting to be killed. Mr. A has admitted to boiling, killing and selling over 600 stray cats, which seems like an unfathomably high number, but the police explained that there is a high demand for cat soup due to a niche belief that the soup cures or alleviates symptoms of arthritis.

Unfortunately, although Mr. A has been arrested, the “Health Food Center” that bought the cats’ organs will go unpunished. This is because there are no laws to stop these types of organizations from reselling the cats to the public.

However, Mr. A will be charged for violating the provision in the Animal Protect Act, which prohibits the act of killing an animal by inhumane methods. Please sign this petition to ensure that Mr. A will be punished to the highest degree of South Korean law for cruelly boiling live stray cats if he’s found guilty.


Dear President Geun-Hye Park and Minister Kyo-Ahn Hwang

Mr. A was arrested for boiling 600 live stray cats and selling their organs to a “Health Food Center” in another province. There is a belief in South Korea that cat soup can cure or alleviate symptoms of arthritis, but consuming them does more harm than good. Unlike livestock animals such as pigs and cattle, cats are not managed for sanitation and parasites in cats are more likely to be transferred to humans.

Aside from the actual health risk of consumption, the manner in which Mr. A allegedly slaughtered these innocent cats is shockingly cruel. According to the Animal Protection Act, it is against the law to kill an animal inhumanely. Every animal deserves justice. I urge you to make sure that Mr. A is severely punished for the torture and slaughter of hundreds of cats if he’s found guilty.

  11. Innocent dogs & cats are being tortured and killed in your country. Not only are these practices evil & sadistic, they bring much shameful attention to S. Korea. Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs & cats are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, & treated brutally by farmers & slaughterers. Also, dogs & cats are still being beaten & boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant & gullible customers. Much of the brutality these poor animals experience is not only in the way that they are slaughtered, but also in the horrible & intentional abuse they endure preceding their deaths. This horror inflicted upon these animals is cruel, insane, unconscionable, immoral, shameful, hateful, irrational, merciless, criminal, savage. Many believe that the more a dog suffers, the tastier the meat & the greater the health benefits, which, as we all know, is ridiculous & pure fallacy & a huge untruth.

    What is wrong with the intelligence of people who can boil dogs and cats alive. Dogs are the only animals that can feel human emotions. Cats are our pets. Asians are a strange race. They enjoy torturing animals for long periods of time. Sadistic natures. Godless countries. Judgement Day coming. Jesus will return.oh to be judged cruel by our Father. Ashes are promised for you.
