Kim Jong-un orders all pet dogs be confiscated in North Korean capital saying they’re a symbol of Western decadence

NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong Un has ordered all the dogs in the nation’s capital of Pyongyang to be confiscated, according to reports.

The leader is said to believe that pooches represent Western “decadence,” and so issued a directive back in July to round up the pets.

A source told the English edition of Chosun Ilbo, a South Korean newspaper, that Kim believes dogs are “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeouis ideology.”

The source added: “Ordinary people raise pigs and livestock on their porches, but high-ranking officials and the wealthy own pet dogs, which stoked some resentment (among the lower classes).

“Authorities have identified households with pet dogs and are forcing them to give them up or forcefully confiscating them and putting them down.”

Dog owners have been “cursing Kim Jong Un behind his back,” the source said, but admitted their hands are tied.

Some dog owners have even expressed concerns about the motives behind the order.


While Kim is expressed the move is to clamp down on capitalist extravagance in the nation’s capital, some fear that the dog roundup is, in fact, a way of dealing with a North Korean food shortage.

In 2018, it was reported that consumption of dog had increased in North Korea during the summer heat.

Last week, Kim said he would refuse outside aid to help North Korea deal with the coronavirus.
