While North Korea’s measures to quarantine excessive new coronavirus infections (Corona 19) are continuing in the New Year of 2021, a source reported that recently some border areas have even issued an absurd order to “extinct the street cats”.
A source from North Hamgyeong Province said in a call with Daily NK on the 14th, “On the 9th, Onseong-gun has placed an instruction to get rid of the street cats. It is also explained that it is intended to prevent the transmission of corona through beasts coming from China.” .
In June last year, North Korea introduced the Storm Corps (11th Corps) and 7th Corps into the border area of North Korea and China, and last August, through a declaration from the Ministry of Social Security,’people and animals entering and entering the buffer zone secretly and invading are fired without warning.’ I also warned him.
In this way, the North Korean authorities used various means last year, such as firing actual fires while putting in military forces to block the infectious disease infection.
This continues even into the new year. On January 2nd, residents saw soldiers shooting at birds flying from China in Bocheon County, Yanggang Province. In particular, there has also been a’tragedy’ in which soldiers were killed by shooting while walking across the border in search of food.
Sources pointed out that “they are now forcing the residents to kill animals,” and “it is also inducing the spread of a kind of fear that coronaviruses (viruses) may be buried in cats coming from China.”
Increasingly, residents are expressing their anger at an indefinite’kill’ order.
“It’s not even a job to kill a cat on a board that kills people, too.”
It is also pointed out that this is an irrational instruction. “Even though animals can’t speak, they know a lot to eat.” “Why do cats come over to the land of Joseon (North Korea), where people don’t have enough food,” the source introduced.
‘Gunshot’ that never ceases in the new year “Catch birds flying from the middle too”
