Ek Park was driving around her mother’s home town of Dangjin, Korea when she accidentally went the wrong way and found herself on a dog meat farm.
Park is actually the founder of Free Korean Dogs, a charity that helps save dogs from meat farms in Korea and re-home them in America. She had been to this farm before to save dogs, but this time her visit was unintentional.
She decided to get out of her car and take a look around – that’s when she heard someone crying.
“When I went to the owner’s house located right beside the dog farm, I found this little kitten — so tiny, about my hand size,” Park explained. “I could tell he was so hungry and starved, but he was very scared, so he was just crying.”
The kitten, that Park later named Nimo, was eating dirt.
“He was so hungry when I saw him, he was eating dirt, maybe trying to eat worms,” she said.
As Park picked up the kitten and inspected him, the angry owner stormed outside.
