Parascandola managed to speak to the former dog meat farmer, who confirmed Parascandola’s suspicions about Camo being a former pet.
“When I checked with the farmer, he said, ‘Yes indeed, he had been somebody’s companion,’” Parascandola said. “Somebody couldn’t keep him anymore.”
“A lot of times, this is what happens in Korea when people don’t want their animals anymore,” Parascandola added. “Shelters are hard to find, and if the guy down the road has a dog meat farm, they just drop them off with that person.”
