North Korea Food Shortages Force Government to Confiscate Pet Dogs

Kim Jong Un’s excuse was predictably panned as utter nonsense.

North Korea has long been a dystopian nightmare of a nation, run by a dynastic family of dictators who live lavishly while their people suffer mightily.

Horror stories from inside the despotic hermit kingdom are largely squelched by the DPRK’s nearly airtight isolationism and the threat of being tossed into one of the nation’s concentration camps should you be caught relaying tales from the inside to the outside.  Worse still:  Those deemed traitorous to the state often bring punishment to their families as well, with several generations often finding themselves being beaten, tortured, or worse at one of these facilities concurrently.

Now, as the global coronavirus pandemic continues to wreak havoc on North Korea, (despite the fact that the leadership there has refused to admit as much), desperate times have come for the people of the dictatorship.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has ordered pet dogs to be confiscated in the country’s capital, saying the pooches represent Western “decadence’’ — but their owners fear Fido is really headed for someone’s dinner table.

Kim issued the directive in July to round up the pets, claiming they were part of “a ‘tainted’ trend by bourgeouis ideology,’’ a source told the English edition of Chosun Ilbo, a South Korean newspaper.

“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, the source said.

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

The “decadence” excuse isn’t fooling anyone, however, as North Koreans openly believe that these animals will soon make their way into the food supply.
