In the darkness they hide awaiting to be caught and brutally murdered.
This is the reality of what is going to happen to the dogs in Malaysia, following cases of rabies in Perlis, Kedah and Penang. The order to kill all strays comes from Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng. He believes that the situation is critical and that all the strays, in Penang, have rabies and should be rounded up and killed to stop the spread of disease! In Kedah a total of 476 stray dogs had been culled while 1,639 were vaccinated to prevent further outbreak of rabies. So why can they not vaccinate the dogs in Penang?
What the Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has ordered is not only inhumane but barbaric. 40,000 dogs will be killed when there are alternative solutions. The Veterinary council should be advising the Chief Minister to on other solutions for example vaccinating all stray dogs on the streets and quarantine any dogs suspected of rabies for further testing. The state health, Dr Afif Bahardin, want the public to understand why these drastic measures are being taken.
The public understand fully that the Government would rather murder innocent animals. They say they are trying to protect human lives. Are they even sure that the rabies was passed by a bite or did that person eat a rabid dog?
How can we trust a Government that does not have laws in place to protect animals and would rather take extreme measures to murder all the dogs than take advice from other animal organisations? A warning to all pet owners has been announced to keep their dogs on a lead when outdoors and the dogs to be kept in the home all other times. Otherwise the owners risk having their beloved pets killed by the Government. It’s not against the law in Malaysia to eat dogs but yet they won’t shut down illegal and barbaric meat trade of dogs.
I say again, how can we trust the government? Show me proof of the dog bites and a better solution and I will trust you. Each and every day how many dogs are killed for no reason? Beaten, tortured and eaten.
We don’t see much media coverage of dogs being killed by humans. I believe that dogs and cats are sentient beings and should be treated with the same laws that humans have. Why should we have more rights than they do? They are still living, breathing and show signs of emotions like humans. The Government have already begun the mass murder of dogs. On 17th September 2015 one hundred dogs were killed. We cannot let them kill anymore.
Stand together as one. Be the voice for all the innocent dogs.
