Sickening news out of China .............. What's worse is that the local Chinese government saw slaughtering every dog as the solution to dog attacks and a several reported cases of rabies. Read it and weep. I did.
After you weep - get your game on to stop the spread of fear and ignorance. Stand up for innocent dogs - and you too can Help Save Dogs & Democracy.
Several men approached, talked her into handing them the leash and then beat the dog to death as the owner looked on in horror.
The killing was only a small part of a campaign by Mouding County government officials to slaughter 50,000 canines between July 25 and Sunday, local media reported.
The campaign was touched off by reports that at least three people had died recently in the county from rabies and many others had been bitten.
On Saturday, officials said that 90 percent of the dogs had been killed, and they expected to finish their work on Sunday.
Witnesses indicated the slaughter was often carried with the sort of dramatic elements found in a grade-B horror film.
