A dog looks out from a cage at a dog farm during a media visit organised by the Humane Society International in Wonju, south East of Seoul on April 27, 2016. The dogs in the farm, one of thousands across the country, were bred specifically for consumption and confined in their cages from birth until slaughtered for their meat. South Koreans are believed to consume somewhere between 1.5 million-2.5 million dogs every year, but the meat farming industry is in decline, with little demand among the younger generation.
