South Korean Animal Rights Activist Sentenced to Two Years for Euthanizing Rescue Dogs

The Seoul Central District Court sentenced Park So-yeon, the former chief of Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth (CARE), to two years in jail for euthanizing ninety-eight rescued dogs under her group's care. Park was accused of euthanizing the dogs due to a lack of space at her facility and to reduce the burden of medical costs needed to treat the animals.
