Olympic Skier Shuts Down Dog Meat Farm & Saves 90 Dogs From Being Slaughtered

Gus Kenworthy may be a freestyle skier who rides for the us and may be a two-time Olympian, bringing home the silver in 2014 from Sochi, Russia.

But skiing isn’t the sole thing he's known for. Kenworthy may be a huge animal lover, and recently he and his boyfriend, Matt, helped pack up one among South Korea’s many dog meat farms each day after he competed within the Winter Olympic Games there.

Kenworthy and Matt visited one among the 17,000 dog farms there and sadly witnessed first-hand how poorly these dogs were being treated. The dogs were malnourished and physically abused, and made to measure in small wire-floored pens, where they were exposed to the weather .

“When it comes time to place one down, it's done so ahead of the opposite dogs by means of electrocution, sometimes taking over to twenty agonizing minutes,” Kenworthy explained on Instagram. “Despite the beliefs of some, these dogs are not any different from those we call pets back home. a number of them were even pets at just one occasion and were stolen or found and sold into the dog meat trade.”
Thanks to these two men, along side the Humane Society International, this particular dog farm are going to be permanently pack up and therefore the 90 neglected dogs will now be going back to the us and Canada, where they're going to be put up for adoption to seek out loving forever homes.

“I’m hoping to use this visit as a chance to boost awareness to the inhumanity of the dog meat trade and therefore the plight of dogs everywhere, including back range in the U.S. where many dogs are in need of loving homes!” Kenworthy wrote.

Kenworthy even adopted two of the dogs himself and decided to call them Beemo and Birdie. Sadly, Beemo gave up the ghost soon after but Birdie are going to be celebrating her second birthday in February.
