See SideBar for links to the latest news/articles in the press on the Dog Catching Competition

Good grief everyone,

After all that we have gone through to make these people understand that the dog catching competition is inhumane and unacceptable, the Selangor MB has actually come forward and stated that he supports this barbaric sport. (See Handover of Memorandum and 2160 Signatures to MPS and Peaceful Protest Against Dog Hunt, and all my previous posts... )

And to top it all off, he has conveniently passed off their duty of looking after the dogs that are caught to the SPCA... I'd like to know why this responsibility has been fobbed off onto the SPCA, especially in light of the fabulous level of care provided by the MPS to the dogs at their pound. I am sure that the SPCA and all other animal charities and welfare organistions cannot match this or even come close to the level of care that is being provided by the MPS.

I am speechless at the moment, and seething with fury... Can't even think of what to say to such people who don't even stop to think of the deeper issues that this dog catching competition would bring about. They don't seem to understand that apart from being inhumane to the dogs, we as humans of this nation will lose our humanity and morality...

Here is an extract of the article

MB supports dog-catching competition

SHAH ALAM: Selangor Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo has supported the move by the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) to organise a dog-catching competition.
“Competitions like this are good, as the animals are not killed but caught and handed over to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

"Dog-catching must be done as the strays could attack children or even adults. The animals could also spread diseases as the strays rummage through garbage and contract skin diseases," he told reporters after chairing the state executive council meeting here.

Dr Khir said, "All the animals caught will be given to SPCA and the dogs would be housed or even put to sleep based on their reasonable expertise in judging the state of the dogs."

I don't know to shake my head in disbelief or laugh at the utter stupidity of his statements.


Heads up Natasha!
You're doing a great job.
Even if it seems futile, at least you know you tried and are still trying!
