Tras morir tres personas a causa de rabia, el Gobierno Chino ha decidido sacrificar 50.000 perros. A algunos animales los mataron a golpes en la calle mientras sus dueños presenciaban la escena.

CARTA MODELO PARA PROTESTAR:
Dear Mr. Qiu Xiaoqi,
I am shocked and outraged to learn that the Chuxiong authorities recently undertook a brutal campaign to slaughter 50,000 dogs. High volume killing campaigns have proven, time and time again, to be an ineffective measure to control populations of stray dogs and prevent rabies - and in fact, succeed only in creating an incredibly poor image for your government, both within China and internationally.
Innovative new solutions to the problems of rabies and stray dog control, such as cost-effective "Trap/Neuter/Release" and "Animal Birth Control" programmes are being adopted throughout the world, with statistically proven results: shelter intakes are down, 'nuisance' animals greatly reduced and most importantly - the incidences of rabies have dropped dramatically.
With just over 150 million pet dogs throughout China, pet ownership is booming and it is crucial for government authorities to recognise that dogs play an increasingly important role in today's society. There are already numerous humane solutions to ensure that dogs and people can co-exist peacefully and safely in the modern world - thus there is simply no excuse for the current brutal measures being taken against dogs and their devastated owners.
We implore you to immediately end your policy of culling dogs and to work in conjunction with animal groups to introduce public education initiatives to ensure that dogs are treated with the respect that they deserve.
