Dog meat on the menu for Olympic tourists: Restaurants ignore official orders to stop serving the food in region where Winter Games are held
Almost all the dog meat restaurants in Pyeongchang, where the Winter Olympics opening ceremony will be held on Friday, have disregarded a government request to stop serving the food.
South Koreans are believed to consume about one million dogs a year as a summertime delicacy. The greasy red meat is boiled for tenderness and is believed to increase energy and health.
Activists have launched several campaigns to ban dog consumption, with online petitions urging boycotts of the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics over the issue, and protests in Seoul.
Local authorities asked the 12 dog meat restaurants in Pyeongchang county to stop serving the food during the Games, in exchange for subsidies.
But only two have complied, Pyeongchang County government official Lee Yong-bae told AFP.
