Kim Jong-Un’s uncle probably not fed to dogs

The brutal stories emerging from North Korea struck fear into people near and far.

Tight control and hasty executions are what the media has focused on in relation to the mysterious country.

But the truth is sketchy when it comes from third parties that may or may not have the inside on government activities.

Somehow a Chinese news source got gruesome information about the execution of leader Kim Jong-Un’s uncle that seems like propaganda.

Time wrote an analysis on Friday that debunks the plausibility that Kim fed his uncle to 120 starving attack dogs as punishment for treachery.

News that leader Kim Jong-Un executed his uncle, Change Song-thaek, over allegedly treacherous acts perplexed many earlier in December. Chang allegedly tried to control business dealings with China and other rival countries to gain political and economic power, according to sources in a New York Times piece.

"Chang dreamed such a foolish dream that once he seizes power by a base method, his despicable true colours as 'reformist' known to the outside world would help his 'new government' get 'recognised' by foreign countries in a short span of time,” a report from Korean Central News Agency reported.

That news was verified by the country’s media, but the method is questionable.

China’s Wen Wei Po newspaper tried to report that starved hounds ravaged the body instead of more traditional methods.

The NYT report claims that Chang was killed via traditional means which would not include a brutal dog mauling.

It is uncertain how Wen Wei Po would have found out such an intimate detail related to one of the country’s most surprising executions. The report has not been verified by any insider, which is not surprising given media censorship in North Korea.

Kim has been known to take out others closest to him. He reportedly ordered the killings of an ex-girlfriend and other members of the Unhasu Orchestra for alleged pornography.
