This is an interesting one ... again I haven't heard anything of this so feel like I am living in a bubble here!
NW China campaign against dogs highlights legal loophole in animal welfare
Turns out that there has been a big rabies outbreak in China and "city government ordered that all dogs in rabies-infected villages be killed. More than 34,000 dogs were killed as of June 11, according to the local government"
"As of June 12, about 8,600 people had been bitten or scratched by dogs and 12 had died of rabies"
Take some time to read the article. It's really interesting. I have found that sometimes governments look at the most controlled way to keep the people safe. They have to take into account the asshats out there (similar to what causes a need for BSL ... but that's another day's post!) and they have to ensure they are able to keep the innocent people safe.
Once you have read the article, post your comments and thoughts ... how would you resolve this issue to keep the population safe?
