China continues to slaughter dogs
August 4, 2006 § 2 Comments
After killing over 50,000 dogs in one province, China has issued an order to continue the mass slaughter of dogs to curb a rabies outbreak.
I am absolutely sickened by this, not just by the mass killing of dogs but also knowing that rabies has killed more than 2,000 people in China last year after year. This is a largely preventable disease, but while 75% of rural Chinese homes have dogs, only about 3% vaccinate their pets regularly.
The laziness and irresponsability of pet owners is not only resulting in the deaths of innocent animals again, but is KILLING the citizens of China. I’m just so disgusted and astounded that the Chinese think the dogs are the actual problem.
