The latest victim of South Korea's sprawling corruption scandal: The former president's dogs.
Park Geun-hye was impeached last week, so she had to move out of the Blue House, the South Korean presidential residence.
But Sky News reports she left her nine dogs behind. She had received two Jindo hunting dogs, named Saerom and Heernang ('New' and 'Hope' in Korean) when she took office in 2013. They recently gave birth to seven puppies that are still too young to be separated from their mother.
"It seems that Park Geun-hye is a person who entirely lacks empathy, whether it's for humans or animals."
—Park Jeong-eon, office worker
Park, already publicly unpopular due to the ongoing scandal, was harshly criticized for leaving her dogs with Blue house office workers as she left. She will likely not face charges, since the dogs weren't "wandering without an owner in public places," to use the words of South Korea's animal cruelty law. If she is found guilty, she could be forced to pay a fine.
