Chinese county culls 50,000 dogs

SHANGHAI, China (AP) -- 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.

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.

About 360 of the county's 200,000 residents suffered dog bites this
year, with three reported deaths, including a 4-year-old girl, the
report said.

"With the aim to keep this horrible disease from people, we decided to
kill the dogs," Li Haibo, a spokesman for the county government was
quoted as saying by the official Xinhua News Agency.

Calls to county government offices rang unanswered on Tuesday.

China has suffered a major rise in the number of rabies cases in recent
years, with 2,651 reported deaths from the disease in 2004, the last
year for which data was available, according to the Chinese Center for
Disease Control and Prevention.

Experts have tied the rise in cases in part to a major increase in dog
ownership, particularly in rural areas where about 70 percent of
households keep dogs. However, rates of rabies vaccination remain
extremely low at only about 3 percent, according to the center.

In the circumstance, it was probably the right thing to do, although I
don't know about beating dogs to death right on the street.


Not all 54,429 (that precise figure according to the Shanghai Daily)
dogs were clubbed on the street in broad daylight even though that part
of it gets the biggest mention in news accounts. From other news
accounts, most were euthanized with drugs or hanged after owners refused
to kill their own dogs.

Authorities first encouraged dog owners to kill their own pets,
offering a 5 yuan incentive (62 US cents), and then sent in the
task force to finish those that escaped the first-round
slaughter.

The midnight raids were carried out by the task force officers.

According to Chinese media reports, several methods were used to
kill the dogs, including clubbing, hanging, electrocution and
drugs.

Although most villagers said they understood the necessity for
campaign, others thought it was brutal - and unnecessary. About
4,000 dogs in the county had been vaccinated against rabies.

A local veterinary authority official surnamed Liang explained
that only 85 percent of the vaccinations would be effective,
however.

"With the aim to keep this horrible disease from people, we
decided to kill the dogs," Xinhua news agency quoted Li Haibo,
spokesman for the county government, as saying.

The scale of the cull may seem grand even in the context of a rabies
outbreak, and the clubbing reports seem barbaric in our culture, but we
euthanize 4-6 million cats and dogs every year (according to the Humane
Society) in the US simply because they're unwanted.


Which shows clearly the dishonesty behind the "ar" claims that "ar"
would provide livestock with decent lives until they die of natural causes,
and the even *more* contemptibly dishonest claim that they would be set
free. Neither would happen, showing again that "ar" is a very dishonest
mi$nomer in regards to domestic animals.

LOL. Of course it does Goo, and all of the following show it even

WAVY-TV's coverage in Norfolk included heartbreaking details from the
manager of the supermarket whose dumpster became an impromptu pet
cemetery. "They just slung the doors [open] and started throwing dogs
.... beautiful cats. I saw a [dead] beagle last week that was pregnant ... last
week it was 23 or 24 dogs ... it's happened to us nine times ... they drove
straight from there, straight here, and disposed of the dogs in 30 seconds."

Authorities told WNCT-TV in Greenville, NC that they've discovered more
than 70 dead animals in the last month that may be connected to PETA.

From July 1998 through the end of 2003, PETA killed over 10,000 dogs, cats,
and other "companion animals" -- at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. That's
more than five defenseless animals every day. Not counting the dogs and
cats PETA spayed and neutered, the group put to death over 85 percent of
the animals it took in during 2003 alone. And its angel-of-death pattern shows
no sign of changing.

According to the Associated Press (AP) PETA killed 1325 dogs and cats
in Norfolk last year. That was more than half the number of animals is
took in during that period. According to Virginian-Pilot Reporter, Kerry
Dougherty, the execution rate at PETA's "shelter" far exceeds that of the
local Norfolk SPCA shelter where only a third of animals taken in are
"put down."

In a July 2000 Associated Press story, reporter Matthew Barakat described

those animals to be placed in adoptive homes. Only 386 of them ever were.

State Veterinarian, PETA Head Differ On Outbreak
[...]
On Thursday, Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals, renewed her claim that an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease
in the United States would benefit herds by sparing them from a tortured
existence and the slaughterhouse.

A PETA spokesman said it's inconceivable that anyone would fail to see
the sense of Newkirk's statements, which have rankled politicians and
livestock farmers from Texas to Canada.

[...]
In a telephone interview from Richmond, Va., Newkirk reiterated her
hope that foot-and-mouth -- which has ravaged herds in Europe -- reaches
U.S. shores.

''It's a peculiar and disturbing thing to say, but it would be less than truthful
if I pretended otherwise,'' she said.

People would be better off without meat because it is tied to a host of
ailments, Newkirk said. And animals would benefit because the current
means of raising and slaughtering livestock are ''grotesquely cruel from
start to finish.''

"I would go to work early, before anyone got there, and I would just kill the
animals myself. Because I couldn't stand to let them go through other workers
abusing the animals. I must have killed thousands of them, sometimes dozens
everyday."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PETA, The New Yorker, April 14, 2003

"We are not in the home finding business, although it is certainly true that we
do find homes from time to time for the kind of animals people are looking for.
Our service is to provide a peaceful and painless death to animals who no
one wants."
-- Ingrid Newkirk, President, PETA, The Virginian-Pilot, July 20, 2005
