North Korea, (Daily Mail), 17 August 2020 -   Kim Jong-un has declared that pet dogs are a symbol of capitalist ‘decadence’ and ordered that dogs in Pyongyang be rounded up - and owners are fearful that their beloved pets are being used to solve the nation’s food shortages.  


Dictator Kim announced in July that owning a pet is now against the law, denouncing having a dog at home as ‘a tainted trend of bourgeois ideology’.  


‘Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down’, a source told South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper.  


‘Some of the dogs are sent to state-run zoos or sold to dog meat restaurants’.   A recent UN report stated that as many as 60 percent of North Korea’s 25.5 million people are facing ‘widespread food shortages’ that have been worsened by international sanctions imposed on the regime for its nuclear missile programmes.
