China kills 50,000 dogs in campaign against rabies

August 2, 2006

BY CHRISTOPHER BODEEN

SHANGHAI, China -- China slaughtered 50,000 dogs in a government-ordered
crackdown after three people died of rabies, sparking unusually pointed
criticism in state media Tuesday and an outcry from animal rights activists.

Health experts said the brutal policy pointed to deep weaknesses in the
health-care infrastructure in China, where only 3 percent of dogs are
vaccinated against rabies and more than 2,000 people die of the disease
each year.

The five-day slaughter in Yunnan province in southwestern China ended
Sunday and spared only military guard dogs and police canine units,
state media reported.

'Crude, cold-blooded'

Dogs being walked were seized from their owners and beaten to death on
the spot, the Shanghai Daily newspaper reported. Led by the county
police chief, killing teams entered villages at night creating noise to
get dogs barking, then beat the animals to death, the reports said.

Owners were offered 63 cents per animal to kill their own dogs before
the teams were sent in, they said.

The killings were widely discussed on the Internet, with both legal
scholars and animal rights activists criticizing them as crude and
cold-blooded. The World Health Organization said more emphasis needed to
be placed on rabies prevention.

The official newspaper Legal Daily blasted the killings as an
''extraordinarily crude, cold-blooded and lazy way for the government to
deal with epidemic disease.''

PETA calls for boycott

''Wiping out the dogs shows these government officials didn't do their
jobs right in protecting people from rabies in the first place,'' the
newspaper, published by the central government's Politics and Law
Committee, said in an editorial in its online edition.

The killings prompted calls for a boycott of Chinese products from the
activist group People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Officials
defended the slaughter in a region where about 360 of the 200,000
residents suffered dog bites this year, with three people reportedly
dying of rabies, including a 4-year-old girl.

Unlike in the West, where dogs have long been cherished, dogs have
rarely had an easy time in China. Dog meat is eaten throughout the
country, revered as a tonic in winter and a restorer of virility in men.

About 70 percent of rural households keep dogs, according to the Chinese
Center of Disease Control and Prevention, and increased rates of dog
ownership have been tied to a surge in the number of rabies cases. It
said there were 2,651 reported deaths from the disease in 2004, the last
year for which data was available.

You can't criticize another culture that you are not part of. Get with
the program.

This was a justified cull. Probably a bunch of inbred wild animals anyway.

Maybe if they had shot the dogs but they clubbed them to death and they took
dogs from familys that had them as pets. Not all of them were running
loose.

If they had in place a decent vaccination & spay program none of this ever
would have happened.

Oh thats an easy friggin thing to do... 1.3 billion people, if say 25%
had dogs.. you would still have over half of the population of the USA
and Canada combined.

You people need to use common sense. You can't go comparing anything in
the USA to anything in China. Completely different bag of tricks over
there.
