The move by leader Kim Jong Un is apparently aimed at appeasing public discontent amid a dire economic situation, a report says.

People in North Korea are reportedly being forced to give up their pet dogs so they can be used as dog meat for restaurants.

The move by the leader Kim Jong Un is thought to be aimed at appeasing rising discontent among the public amid a dire economic situation in the secretive country, including food shortages.

Pet dogs are thought to be owned mostly by the elite and wealthy in the capital Pyongyang and are seen by authorities a symbol of capitalist "decadence", while ordinary people have pigs and other livestock.

Mr Kim issued a ban on pet ownership in July, denouncing it as "a tainted trend by bourgeois ideology", according to South Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper, citing a source.

The source said: "Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down."

Some of the dogs are being sent to state-run zoos or sold to dog meat restaurants, the source added.


Dog meat is traditionally popular in China and on the Korean Peninsula, although consumption is on the decline in South Korea.

Pet owners are "cursing Kim Jong Un behind his back," but there is little they can do, according to the source.

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

Pet ownership used to be viewed as western decadence, but attitudes appear to have relaxed when the North hosted the World Festival of Youth and Students in 1989.

After that, the Pyongyang elite started flaunting expensive dogs as status symbols, the Chosun Ilbo reported.

Now the latest move, seen by one defector as more severe than previous clampdowns, is being hailed by authorities as protecting the country against capitalist "decadence".

Other than eating dogs to not starve... how is everything else going in NK?

Looks like 1 Bitcoin is equal to 12 million or is that 12 billion North Korean Won... all those zeros get so confusing.

Also pondering how many original Vienna sausages can be made from one schnauzer? Does anyone know? Or is there no Schnauzer in a Vienna sausage?

Wondering if we might appeal to the North Korean people? Dogs, cats, wild horses, wild donkeys traded for nuclear weapons and deposing Kim. Dog pounds kill millions of dogs and cats a year and the western range is over run by wild horses and donkeys.

It's nothing new in N. Korea. They've had famines before. So at least they now have experience dealing with this sort of thing. I bet they now have lots of recipes for preparing canine cuisine. Of course, in true commie socialist tradition, Kim and the ruling class are still living (and eating) like kings. Meanwhile; the peasants are out wokking the dog.

The more I think about it we have lots of non-kosher meat we could send over there in trade for Kim's ouster and their nuclear weapons. Millions of wild hogs and I have no idea how many 1 ton sea lions on the west coast. A huge benefit to both countries.

If Dennis Rodman ran for president of North Korea would he promised "a dog in every wok... and to bicycles in every garage."

Maybe Dennis Rodman could tap Joe Biden as his running mate?

By the way, this is the first positive side effect I have heard relating to communism.
