2 Rabies Cases Prompts Mass Dog Cull in Malaysia

This petition had 5,093 supporters


Malaysian minister, Lim Guan Eng, to 'destroy' ALL stray dogs in Penang, Malaysia, after 2 confirmed rabies cases. These dogs will be rounded up and murdered in cold blood whether or not they are infected.

Instead of attempting to rectify the situation and coming up with solutions, Lim Guan Eng has described the killing of stray dogs in Penang as a 'micro' problem. The Malaysian minister has also warned that pets who are outside of private property risk being caught and put to sleep as well.

I demand​​ that Lim Guan Eng will reconsider his actions and come up with a sane solution for this problem. Is the answer to kill every single dog every single time someone gets infected with rabies? What about the dogs who are not infected who will be murdered in cold blood for no good reason at all? Should these dogs die in vain when there is a vaccination easily available that prevents rabies?
