Shanghai Kills 50,000 dogs

Not sure if this is rational politics or not and not really much can be done about it but if you haven't read it, it appears that a local government in China has decided to kill all the dogs in an area to control rabies. Read any of these stories to get a feel of it. Here's another story.

I am not sure that we can convince that government otherwise but it does seem quite inhuman to do this to all those pets. All it takes for the situation to get worse is for rabies to occur in other major Chinese cities and perhaps we will see the same policy being implemented there. I wonder if this would ever be tolerated in a true democracy.
