Why Olympian Gus Kenworthy is bringing a 4-legged friend home with him!


American Olympic freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas visited a dog meat farm in South Korea in what he described as “one of the saddest places” he had ever been.

“I am honestly feeling heartbroken,” the 2014 Olympic silver medalist said as he and Wilkas, a theater and film actor, explored the property on Friday.

The pair traveled to the farm in an effort to raise awareness of the treatment of dogs brought up to be slaughtered for their meat, The Associated Press reported.                                                                     

The dog meat farm is in the process of being shut down and all 90 dogs are being taken from the facility to the United States and Canada for adoption. He also is taking home a dog he rescued...which is what he did four years ago during the Socchi Olympics.
