Kim Jong Un Orders Government to Seize Pet Dogs Amid Food Shortages in North Korea
An unnamed source was cited by the South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo that reported the communist dictator Kim Jong Un issued a ban on pet ownership last month, declaring the move to be a measure “protecting the country against capitalist ‘decadence.'” Dear leader reportedly declared that ownership of dogs is “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeois ideology.”
Funny how the fat little maniac himself looks like he’s never missed a meal.
The source additionally claimed, “Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down.”
According to the newspaper, some of man’s best friend are being shipped out to state-owned zoos (are there any privately owned zoos), and others are being sold to restaurants, leaving pet owners distraught, but with no recourse in the secretive regime. Over there, people are taught from the moment of birth that the only person, place, or thing you can love is Dear Leader. So, the government expects you to give up your pet dog, your best friend, to be used in a restaurant all because communism sucks.
The New York Post reported that “while the oppressive regime says the move is to clamp down on capitalist extravagance in Pyongyang, the dog owners are fearful that given North Korea’s food shortage — and propensity for eating dog meat — the directive has only come about to feed the masses.”
The Daily Mail reported that North Korea “is facing widespread food shortages, aggravated by the decision to close the border with China due to coronavirus.” The outlet also pointed out that “Beijing is traditionally Pyongyang’s main supporter and the source of much of the food required to feed Kim’s people.”
On top of the challenges from CV-19, North Korea’s domestic food production has suffered as a result of large parcels of cropland being wiped out by flooding.
The hot weather may even have something to do with Kim’s decision to turn pets into food.
According to a 2014 article published by The Guardian:
“When the summer heat strikes the Korean peninsula, it’s not ice or water that North Korea’s authorities recommend to get through the sweltering conditions – it’s dog meat, among other “revitalizing” foods.”
