South Korea dog row brews as Park Geun-hye faces questions

2017-March-17       Source: Chinadaily.com.cn

The Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan Kapca) claimed Ms Park had abandoned her pets and offered to find new homes for the dogs.

The row comes as Ms Park was called for questioning and named as a suspect in the wide-ranging corruption scandal that eventually led to her downfall.

朴槿惠最近麻烦不断,她被传讯审问并因涉嫌卷入一起大规模腐败丑闻而最终下台。

She was dismissed from her post last week when the constitutional court upheld her impeachment.

上周,韩国宪法法庭通过弹劾,罢免了朴槿惠。

South Korea will hold its presidential election on 9 May.

韩国将于5月9日举行总统选举。

Ms Park is the country's first democratically elected leader to be ousted.

朴槿惠是该国第一位被赶下台的民选领导人。

Over the weekend Ms Park left the presidential palace, known as the Cheong Wa Dae, and moved into her house in an affluent district of Seoul.

朴槿惠周末离开青瓦台总统府,搬进了她在首尔富人区的住宅。

Her nine Jindo dogs were not among the entourage that accompanied her.

她的9只珍岛犬没有陪同她一起离开。

The Busan Korea Alliance for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Busan Kapca) noted she could have violated animal protection laws by leaving the dogs behind.

釜山动物保护联盟表示,朴槿惠遗弃狗狗的行为可能违反动物保护法。

The group claimed she had abandoned her pets and offered to find new homes for the dogs.

该组织声称朴槿惠已经抛弃了她的宠物,并提出给狗狗们寻找新家。

A Cheong Wa Dae spokesman denied she had abandoned her dogs, and told Reuters that they were left at the palace partly because it would not be good for them to be uprooted from their home.

一位青瓦台发言人否认朴槿惠抛弃狗狗,并对路透社表示,狗狗们被留在总统府内一定程度上是因为搬家对它们不好。

"She told... staff to take good care of the dogs and to find good foster homes for the puppies if necessary," said the spokesman.

“朴槿惠叮嘱工作人员要好好照顾狗狗们,如有必要就为小狗们找到好的寄养家庭,”这位发言人表示。

Ms Park was known to be fond of her pets, which had been dubbed the country's "First Dogs," reported Korea Times.

据《韩国时报》报道,朴槿惠很喜欢她的宠物,它们被称为韩国“第一狗狗”。

When Ms Park was inaugurated as president in 2013, she moved into Cheong Wa Dae with a pair of Jindo dogs which were given to her as a present.

2013年朴槿惠就任总统,当时她带着一对珍岛犬搬进了青瓦台。这是别人送给她的礼物。

The pair later produced several puppies, some of whom she kept while others were adopted. Jindo dogs are known for their loyalty and devotion.

这对珍岛犬后来生了数只小狗,朴槿惠留下了几只,另外几只送人领养。珍岛犬以对人忠诚、无私奉献而著称。
