Live Dog Tied to Back of Car Again, Netizens Demand Law Change

Dog Tied to Back of Car

Following the “Devil Equus” incident covered by koreaBANG last week that saw a live dog tied to the back of a car, a similar case of alleged animal abuse is gaining public attention, this time under the nickname “Devil Beast” after, on Monday the 30th April, a car was witnessed in Busan driving around with a dog tied by its leash to the back of the car.

Last week’s incident caused quite a stir on the Korean internet, leading to outcry from pop star Lee Hyori and even prompting a demonstration by the “Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth” group on Saturday the 28th on Gwanghwamun Plaza in Seoul. Despite this, the incident was since found to be an unintentional and unfortunate accident and the police have cleared the offending driver of all charges.

However, in the case of the “Devil Beast” it would seem that the lead had been attached to the back of the car more deliberately. The case has been submitted to the police for investigation, but netizens keep calling for the animal protection law to be strengthened. The below YouTube video

Comments from Nate:

정영균:

This photo shows the reason why we have to tighten animal protection laws. Were this in another country, he would get 2 years in prison. We have to tighten the animal protection law as soon as possible.

김민지:

Really why are people like this. Just looking at the picture brings me to tears.

박선희:

We should make the owner’s face public…

김경민:

You know whether a country is a developed country by looking at how animals and women are treated there….

김범석:

In a country where if you sexually assault a child, you only get 3years and 6 months…… do you think they will care about animal protection….we still have a long way to go…………….

유영선:

‘[while being dragged by the car]The dog was urinating and wetting itself, with tongue hanging out and saliva dribbling down’……. how scared the dog must have been…. just looking at the article, I think we can feel how scared the dog was, it really makes me sad…

조규범:

Why why why are there so many crazy bastards in Korea.

조운희:

The car owner should be caught, tied by a leash to the car and dragged like this too…

방수민:

Please, let’s not be like this. Tightening the animal protection law is really urgent now.

황은하:

You scum, who says that it’s his business what he does with his dog…. if a person starts thinking lightly about things like this, then next, the person will start thinking lightly about person’s life as well… and the victim of that might be you…

김형규:

It should be compulsory to register the owner’s identification when buying a pet, same as it is with buying a cow…. then they would not have been able to throw the animals on the street….

박용규:

What’s with this trend of similar incidents suddenly showing up after the first one? First it was child sexual molestation that was popular, then sexual assault, then Choseojok killing a Korean, then animal abuse… It looks like after the first incidents similar stories keep coming up… what’s this?

최수빈:

Looking at the picture it really seems that the dog was tied to the car intentionally… crazy… the dog is just next to your car, what the hell are you doing?

김민재:

It seems people are getting more and more strange.

선슬기:

Even an insult would be too good for a bastard like you. Your parents should be tied and dragged by a car like this before your eyes. By the way, where are your parents?

이태문:

I don’t really like animals, but there is a special reason why I don’t keep them. And that is because I know that I wouldn’t be able to take responsibility for them to the end. So unless you are sure you can take care of them, just don’t keep them. Or you will get punished if you don’t…

김영:

Does it make you feel good to treat a living creature like this?

조영회:

I really can’t understand…. why is he doing this?

고승재:

Just kill him! The owner….

박윤영:

When a dog is treated at a vet clinic, they take an additional tax from us. Then why don’t they tighten the law protection of dogs, bastards.

김희중:

Korean law is too weak. Regardless of whether a crime was committed by a minor or foreigner, they should be punished more severely. Our animal protection laws must be tightened too, so that we can stamp out this problem completely.

강구슬:

Wow can’t really control myself.. if you are gonna [treat the animal] like this, why do you keep it? You should not keep any animals.

박선규:

Not sure if this person is normal!! This is too pitiful! What crime has the dog done? The dog obviously just wishes to stay alive!!

박정환:

Those fuckers, they’re not even human, there really are too many [people like that] in our society.

최윤지:

I’m really ashamed to be human, how that dog must have felt ㅠㅠ My heart hurts really.. This is too brutal to a living thing….

김경진:

What kind of excuse will the car owner give now? The dog was too big to fit into the car? -_-

지동욱:

Make the license plate publicly visible!!

김승용:

Maybe he is training the dog for dog-fighting?… crazy bastards

전애리:

Make the license plate and his face public, he must be punished. He would also deserve such a dragging, then he will recover his senses.

전성현:

The dog looks like a fighting dog, maybe he is training him like this…If it’s really for training, there’s one thing I can’t understand… even when the car is standing still, on a road there is always a possibility of a car crashing from behind. On a road – place where many cars are moving around, you never know when accident might happen.

김민수:

Why are you hiding the license plate of such scum!!

김연호:

We should tie this bastard on a leash with the dog behind the wheel…

김성욱:

It seems he is driving slowly enough for the dog to be able to run at the same speed. Looking at the second photo, it looks like the dog is following well. … In case of some big dogs, it’s quite impossible to give them a proper exercise just by walking. You would have to run almost at the same speed as the dog, but how many dog owners are able of that? That’s why people usually use motorbikes for training. If the car on the photo was running at a speed too high for the dog, then it would be clear animal abuse. And anyone who’s got experience in training dogs knows that running with a tongue dangling out is normal way dogs regulate their body temperature. And about the dog urinating and wetting itself, we can’t really know the real situation by hearing just one side of the story. Normally a dog would urinate on the road side somewhere while taking a walk, so it might just be this that prompted a whistle-blower with evil intentions to post those pictures.

이성희:

Why the hell are you doing such things? Instead of usual sentence, that person should be tied to a police car and dragged around the neighbourhood…. cool?~

정동원:

Nowadays, it looks like all these crazy bastards are trying to compete with each other..

UPDATE: It looks like this was simply a case of an old man walking his dog… with his car.

    Well, It does not happen in North Korea….The western propaganda media machine always shows the negative of North Korea and positives of South Korea….

    If this had happened in North Korea…. Western media would be all over it and president of United States along with United nations would condemn the incident and put more sanctions on North Korea…hahahaha LOL :)

    Lets see if the world community does the same to South Korea….:)

    • Brett Sanbon

      Im pretty sure dogs are illegal in Pyeongyang… Also…. really? Compare N. Korea and UN sanctions with an asshole of a pet owner? Also not sure how anything you wrote deserved that many “ha”s like it was a clever joke….

      • Jack

        What a joker white a** comment..Have you even been to North Korea….Why don’t you beg Obama your saviour to put more Sanctions on North Korea….You always need a bogeyman to certify your sanity..

        I love North Korea as much as South Korea…Do whatever you can now

        • Brett Sanbon

          ….No. Have you ever been to North Korea?

          I still dont see the relationship between a jerk with a dog and a country with UN sanctions. Its okay to sympathize with the people of North Korea, I just didnt think anything you wrote was deserving of a huge “LOL”.

          And I wouldnt exactly call Obama my saviour when he is taxing me after already being taxed heavily by South Korea. But hey thats something both North Korea and America have in common… taxation of expats.

    • Bruce Tutty

      I don’t think so, considering the number of Korean Dog Takeaway jokes I’ve hear.

    • lonetrey

      Going to have to agree with Brett on this one. Not sure what the two have to do with each other… But whatever, it’s the internet right? No need to get offended Brett, nor any need to get so defensive, Jack.

  • Brett Sanbon

    I dont think there is anything more to say than the driver/dog owner is an asshole.

    • James

      Just so you know Brett, I almost included more Lee Hyori photos in this one for you but then thought better of it.

      It’s the thought that counts!

      • Brett Sanbon

        Shes the first thing that came to my mind when reading this post. Thanks for the thoughts. Im sure there will be more chances to come.

  • Bruce Tutty

    This is simple…ban the driver from ever driving again…or owning a pet. They obviously can’t do either responsibly.

  • Gracie

    I cannot understand the senseless cruelty of the Korean people. To bring unimaginable pain and suffering to a helpless animal is the act of an evil coward. I do not understand Korean’s ability to inflict such violence against the innocent. How shameful.
