S. Korea animal group offers $3,500 reward to catch people behind burning dogs
SEOUL (AFP) - A South Korean animal rights group offered a three million won (S$3,500) reward today to catch those responsible for setting a dog on fire in an incident that triggered a public outcry.
CCTV footage of the dog running through a car park while engulfed in flames was shown on national TV news channels and prompted angry discussions on social network sites.
The dog ran into a garage and triggered a fire which gutted the structure in Yongin, a city south of Seoul, on Sunday.
The group Coexistence of Animal Rights on Earth offered a three million won reward for information leading to the arrest of those behind the incident.
