Found at recycling bin at 7-11 in Seoul, Korea.
“PET” stands for Polyethylene terephthtalate,
the plastic used in bottles.
“PETS” is incorrect usage of the abbreviation.

But what about the sign on the door that says “Prohibit the animal, unless it permits a person without sight or hearing”…?

If this is a recycling bin, then WHAT exactly do you reuse the pets for??????? My guess: Hairpieces.

It’s hard to keep real pets in Japan, so maybe this is where all those annoying Tamagotchi’s ended up…

wait.. i’m not quite sure it’s incorrect abbreviation.
I think they just put the korean on the left side into a translator, but because the bottom row didn’t have a dot separating the two, the translator probably read it as one word, which, together, makes up the sounds for the english word: “pet”..

This probably isn’t Engrish, as PET is a kind of plastic bottle. Barring that, it may be that Korea is tapping into a new market of animal recycling. When eating in a foreign land, I suggest ensuring that nothing you bite into has an old leash hanging from it.
