In the shadow of the Olympics, a brutal trade in dog meat

( CNN) Untold millions will be cheering on Olympic athletes from around the world as they compete in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But while those jocks are skating and skiing and curling their lane into Olympic history , not far away, something sinister is happen: Puppies are being slaughtered for their meat at more than 17,000 dog meat farms around that country, according to Humane Society International.

In South Korea and elsewhere in Asia, farmers elevate dogs to slaughter them for their meat.

Until the day they are killed, in some examples viciously, bird-dogs farmed for meat are left alone in metal enclosures similar to chicken coops. They are given water just once a day and fed food scraps. They have no human contact, which dogs both require and crave. No desire. No medical attention.
