Dog cull in China to fight rabies

By Quentin Sommerville
BBC News, Shanghai


A county in south-west China has ordered all 50,546 dogs to be killed to fight a rabies outbreak which has killed three people, state media says.

It has taken five days, but authorities in Mouding County in south-west China say they have killed almost all of the 50,000 dogs in the area.

Some of the dogs were clubbed to death in the street as their owners watched.

Other dog owners took matters into their own hands, poisoning or electrocuting their pets.

They were paid around $0.60 (£0.32) for each dog in compensation.

China has a poor record of animal protection. There are no laws to prevent cruelty to pets.

The local government ordered the cull following an outbreak of rabies.

Three people in the county, including a four-year-old girl, have died from the disease. A further 360 were bitten by dogs, the authorities say.

However, even the 4,000 dogs that had been immunised against rabies were put to death in case the immunisations were not effective.

Roadside checkpoints were set up to ensure that no dogs escaped. Only police and military dogs have been spared.

There are a growing number of animal rights activists in China and the country has laws protecting endangered species. But there are no regulations to protect other animals, including pets.

I'm glad to see China is progressing. Usually it's the owners who get clubbed to death in the street.(I'll have my dogmeat medium-with hotsauce)

If this had happened in the US, we'd hear nothing but this for weeks. The world would condemn it, the UN would pass a freakin resolution, every American hater would crawl out of the woodwork to talk smack.

But China does it and gets a free pass. Everybody shrugs and says "Hey, no big deal, they eat them anyway."

chinese don't have pet dogs, they eat them. Most of these dogs would have been slaughtered and eaten anyway. The horrible truth is that dogs are like pork in China, and I don't think anyone in America would be outraged if 50000 pigs were slaughtered to prevent a deadly outbreak. We are no better in this regard.

There's a big difference between raising livestock for slaughter and going ripping pets from owners leashes and beating them to death in the street right in front of them.

Did you read the article? No, I didn't think so. Just wanted to render a utterly ridiculus comparison.

There's no comparison.

Shit man, a dog is a member of the family for me. I think I might actually be willing to go down in a fight with my dog. There must be something different with the way China views dogs. Brings tears to my eyes.
