Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.-- James A. Froude (1818-1894)

Protest Outside DBKL Setapak on Saturday 11am

This is to protest over the ghastly and cruel way stray dogs and cats are killed at the pound. If you had watched 360 Degrees on Wednesday night over TV3, you would have seen how these dastardly individuals who call themselves human beings broke the dogs' necks and dragged them around until they died.

Below is a NOTICE from Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better: Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better and friends are thinking of holding a peaceful protest outside the DBKL dog pound in Setapak this Saturday at about 11.00am.

We have to show the authorities that we, as tax payers, will not condone such brutality.Your support is important. Please respond if you will be able to make it.Unless we put our foot down, stray dogs and cats will continue to suffer under these beasts.

Write to: malaysiandogsdeservebetter@gmail.com if you are interested in participating.

My note: This is not the first time there is animal abuse. Read about Sheena,
MAYOR OF KL'S response :
KL mayor to investigate TV3 report on inhumane killing of dogs and cats
except ... "Members of the public are crying foul over the way stray dogs and cats are allegedly killed at the the Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) animal pound in Setapak.

This is in reaction to the visuals shown over a TV3 programme 360° on Wednesday night.
The visuals which were captured with a hidden camera showed a pound worker dragging a dying dog with a loop around its neck.

To make matters worse, the “execution” was watched by another terrified dog waiting in line for its turn to be killed.

In the programme two people, who had brought the matter to the attention of the television station, said the dogs’ necks were fractured and cats were drowned or clobbered to death at the pound......
Meanwhile, when contacted Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Ahmad Fuad Ismail said he would not condone such cruelty.......
He said the right procedure was to euthanise stray cats and dogs intravenously as opposed to wringing or breaking their necks.
“If the pound had run out of the drugs needed for euthanasia, they should keep the dogs and feed them until the drugs arrive,’’ added Ahmad Fuad...... "

i was in shock after i watched the show a minute ago. i was in tears. i hugged my dog as i was watching 360.

I hope the Mayor will keep his word and do something about it. Even if it's their contract workers doing the killing, DBKL is responsible to ensure proper euthanasia of strays.

I guess to have a greater changes taking place, there should be more peacefull protest coming in to speed up the action from the mayor. This would pour more pressure on the authorities and people will think twice before it is repeated all over again

I'm really ashamed to call myself a Malaysian !!!
