Thank you to my ancestors for allowing me to be born in Canada….
A county in southwestern China has killed as many as 50,000 dogs in a government-ordered campaign following the deaths of three local people from rabies, official media reported on Tuesday.
I guess they don’t have rabies vaccines????
The five-day massacre in Yunnan province’s Mouding county spared only military guard dogs and police canine units, the Shanghai Daily reported, citing local media.
Dogs being walked were taken from their owners and beaten to death on the spot, it said. Other killing teams entered villages at night creating noise to get dogs barking, then homing in on their prey.
Did the Chinese citizens just stand by and allow their officials to beat their dogs to death?
Even 4,000 dogs immunized against the sickness were put to death in case the immunizations were not effective. Compensation of 60 US cents was paid for each dog.
Oh so they do have vaccines, but just didn’t care. The world is one messed up place I tell ya.
