Seoul's Songpa district to offer service finding owners of roadkilled pets
Seoul’s Songpa District has introduced a service of checking tags and chips of pets killed in traffic accidents to identify and locate their owners.
The service also includes removing the deceased pets and delivering them to their owners.
Roadkilled pets were previously categorized as ‘animal carcasses’ and disposed of without identification.
The Songpa district is the first local government to offer the service in South Korea in response to the growing acceptance of pets as family.
