Mouding County Kills Almost All Chinese Dogs

In a very pro-active fashion Mouding county in Yunnan province, China has killed almost all of his dogs. Noooo, not because they were hungry.
Chinese dogs

It has all been handled in a very harmonious way:

Goofy dog On Saturday, a woman was walking her dog - a small white animal she’d had for a long time - in a Yunnan Province alley.

Several men approached, talked her into handing them the leash and then beat the dog to death as the owner looked on in horror.

In an effort to fight against the spread of rabies 54,429 canines are now chasing cats in dog heaven. It seems rather drastic but then again there were already some casualties so time for rigorous action to squash all the Chinese goofies and plutos.

Pluto dog Witnesses indicated the slaughter was often carried with the sort of dramatic elements found in a grade-B horror film.

Around midnight, shadows would flash along the walls of homes as men carrying clubs made noises to set the village dogs barking. Homing in on the sounds, the men would find their quarries, and the barks would be replaced by shrill yelps as the animals were dispatched.

    This is the most barbaric thing that I have ever read, the most inhuman act of group of humans I have heard of to control a problem. I have more respect for the dogs of China than the people of China; I will plan to boycott items from China and would not offer any assistance to the people. This is despicable act that could have been control by euthanasia the dogs in a human manner.

    That’s true!! I am an citizen of Shanghai,China. I raise 2 dogs at home. Every year I have to pay RMB 2,000 to renew the 2 certificates of my two dogs in order to raise the dogs legally. If not, some gangs of vigilante will come to my house to take my dogs away or catch my dogs when I have a walking with them on the street. We call those vigilantes “Da Gou Dui” in Chinese.

    They are so cruel and this is not the first time.In China, every country or city has the “Da Gou Dui”, they are under the government. They catch those strays and pets and kill them in a very cruel way which makes all the pets raisers feel sorrow and cry. They are in human and very brutal, the dogs no matter pets(without certificate) or strays are their objects.

    Even for the legal pet dogs, they are not allowed to walk in the public and on the street(although we alweys take them out in the midnight or early morning.) There is few parks the dogs and enter. The pet dogs only can be raised at home. All the public transportations and entermainment places are not open to the dogs. This is unreasonable and unbelievable.

    We are long for some helps from the world to fight for the rights for dogs and other pets in China. To rescure them from the poky living space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for your comments and I learn something new every day. I didn’t know it is not allowed to walk dogs in the streets. It explains why in the morning and the evening, like you said, I see so many dogs and hardly any during the day.

    It the correct translation for “Da Gou Dui” the “Hit the Dog Team”?

    You can bring your dog. More people do. I don’t if there any official regulation in Shanghai about the maximum size a dog can have. In Beijing they have these kind of rules. You’ll probably need to buy a dog permit if you will be here for a longer term. A good place to get more info is the forum.

    Good luck.
