China’s Dog Slaughter Aftermath Prompts Changes

From Reuters

From Reuters

After more than 36,000 dogs were slaughtered for fear of the rabies epidemic in China, a positive change may emerge. Now even the Chinese civilians are beginning to protest to such barbaric cruelty. The Chinese government and officials begin to debate and try to put in new laws to protect animals – a first, believe it or not, as China remains one of very few industrialized nations without such laws.  Unfortunately, they may not reach this goal until 2010, which means many more animals, including cats, will continue to be killed for unnecessary fear and reasons. However, this is a step in the right direction. See full article here and watch the video (not too graphic) from Reuters.

If you can, write to the Chinese government to express your outrage and urge them to adopt changes. Thank you!

    It is a terrible thing to do to these poor helpless creatures, how many times do you here in the news or anywhere that a dog has killed a human. YES! Exactly, I can see you racking your brains to find at time. But I (in my whole life) have never heard anything like his, yes, maybe I’ve heard that a dog has maybe bitten or hurt a human, but never killed!!!!
    So… my point is:
    WHY SHOULD WE KILL THEM???
