CLIFTON, N.J. -- Animal rights activists want the City of Clifton to use their Friendship City status in South Korea as influence against the dog meat trade.

"We feel certain that the Clifton authorities would have hesitated to form such a Friendship City relationship had they known about the aberrant and cruel practices routinely carried out in the dog and cat meat trades in Seosan and all over South Korea," petition organizers Koreandogs.org said in their online plea.

Clifton and Seosan became Friendship cities in 1999.

Dog meat consumption is currently being practiced in Seosan, although it is illegal under South Korean Law, the petition says.

The change.org petition has more than 3,000 signatures toward a goal of 5,000 names that will be delivered to Clifton Mayor James Anzaldi, Seosan Mayor Wan-Seop Lee and 15 other Seosan decision makers.
