Description

A WPIX-TV investigation, conducted in conjunction with the Humane Society of the United States, reveals an underground market for dog meat among Koreans living in New York State. "A Korean speaking investigator... was able to buy a frozen canine carcas at a farm in the Catskills, and purchase what we were told was dog stew in a Korean restaurant in New York City. DNA testing would ultimately reveal the canine carcas could have been part coyote and the dog stew was not dog. But both buys, however did confirm a market for dog meat does exist in New York." Selling dog meat is illegal in six states, including New Jersey and California, but not in New York.
