PD/ Where? Where?
Informant/ Here.. Oh my god.. It’s been six months.. 34 stray cats have been found.. *Not for the faint-hearted*
The truth behind the stray-cat mystery is revealed It turns out that the wild dogs were the culprit Since then, they began the search for the wild dogs But they didn’t appear.. 6 months later Local/ A cat carcass was found over there
PD/ Where? Under the newspaper.. Stray cats in the neighborhood, found one by one This one died this time, and this is his mom.. That’s how the rescue began Rescue success Local/ Poor dogs.. It’s all our fault They shouldn’t be blamed They’re also victims. The same victims Every dog except Nooreong, who’s assumed to be dead, is captured Animal behaviorist/ They must be against people as they’ve been living a wildlife Very wary of people as well Will never let people stay by them Jindo dogs usually don’t follow other people except for their owner So it’ll take some time to get close with them After all, they haven’t barked at all since they were rescued Hiding is one of the biggest tendencies of wild dogs.. Animal behaviorist/ Dogs normally collect the information around them when they are in a new place But they don’t They’re afraid of being in here since people are nearby They don’t even try to collect the information They’re just afraid of people being around Carefully touches the dog.. Animal behaviorist/ The dog needs to get used to it, and stop shivering like this PD/ Get used to what? Animal behaviorist/ Human touch as the dog isn’t familiar with it.. The dog is feeling uncomfortable with human touch, which he hasn’t experienced in a long time Animal behaviorist/ The dog is also very suspicious Spits out when he finds other stuff in his mouth while eating meat The dog’s not even trying to eat, which makes it hard to take medicine It’s really hard The dog isn’t even moving for a bit to eat the chicken breast right in front of him Animal behaviorist/ Hey, eat~ The other dog doesn’t eat as well Animal behaviorist/ They need to feel comfortable to eat something 30 minutes after the specialist leaves them alone.. Perhaps the dog’s at ease, he begins to eat the meat in the bowl But.. PD/ Did he eat some? Animal behaviorist/ No, he didn’t. It’s not good Puts the delicious meat to his mouth, but.. Animal Behaviorist/ Push it instead Animal behaviorist/ First off, it’s important to let them perceive that this place is safe Next, they have to get to know you To trust that person They need to open up their heart first Carefully approaches and attempts to communicate with them A week later Jaegu, eat! Carefully eats food!! PD/ Wait, does he have a name now? Yeah, we named him Think it’ll make us get close to them more easily The white one is Baekgu, and the other one is Jaegu Now the dogs go by their new names, Baekgu and Jaegu! Slowly gets close to people Now, it’s time to train the dogs to adapt to the environment outside the cage Everything is still awkward and uncomfortable for them Animal behaviorist/ We have to let them know that People are here to play with you Show that playing with people is a good thing I feel bad.. Who made these dogs like this..? After 20 days have passed Meets Jaegu and Baekgu again The dogs who didn’t even bark for a bit have totally changed They used to be silent and stay still.. At first, they thought they were in a closed and strange place However, as they perceive this place as their space Keeps barking when strangers come around What’s more surprising is.. PD/ This is just like running with a pet dog Actually, better than running with pet dogs Animal behaviorist/ Baekgu, stop Baekgu, stop~ Good job! Don’t fight with that dog~ Baekgu even accepts the stranger’s touch PD/ Can you sense that the dog’s fierce in any way? Local/ I can’t really feel that.. Animal behaviorist/ It’s surprising for me too! I was worried when I took him outside But he was okay with the stranger’s touch And stayed next to me where there was a lot of space On the other hand, Jaegu is still very sensitive Though they’ve spent 20 days together already, Jaegu still sits close to the wall Training to enhance intimacy w/ Jaegu! Baekgu already goes up to the back of the new trainer This is how we let them rely on people and experience physical touch Animal behaviorist/ It’s important to build trust with people While letting them naturally rely on people in the fear-inducing environment If it keeps going on and on They’ll open up their heart at last The training goes on until the sun goes down.. 4 days later Jaegu has changed a lot! PD/ Hello
Residents/ Hello! They look good! Resident/ Look at his eyes.. just like normal dogs Looks very gentle and mild.. Couldn’t imagine that they’d sit next to the dogs and laugh together happily Hope you guys live happily with nice people~
