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)

Thu, 07/05/09: A SORRY STATE @ Pulau Ketam

As the problem exploded in their faces, opportunistic politicians and NGOs are quick to call press conferences and media briefings.

Where were these people previously?

........You know what? After all the expected red tape and bureaucracy, more dogs will be dead. The meeting will involve some people who will speak out only for pedigree dogs. And another NGO which is quick to promote culling.

What a sick joke! I get this feeling that these people will probably take the easy way and shoot all of the dogs quietly to eliminate the inconvenience it is causing them. And NO, Yang Berhormat! We will not reschedule our rescue work to accommodate your 'busy' schedules. If you want to come see the plight of the dogs, you make and suit our time.

............... We have made it known that we need boats urgently and not one person in power lifted his or her finger to mobilise resources. At the same time, villagers are charging us even more when we are there to help solve the mess they themselves created. Tragic irony for the dogs.

All the state machinery and equipment belongs to us tax payers but yet are held back when they are needed most. I also can't believe that with a fancy yacht club and so many nice boats anchored in Port Klang, not one member offered to help. (Except, one kind officer from the club who helped us transport the cages).

We are not asking for free rides. We will pay for fuel, crew and reasonable rental. I just want a safer vessel for our volunteers. Currently, we have to make do with all kinds of flimsy boats, putting the lives of volunteers and rescued animals at great risk.

Do I also need to mention not one single vet offered to help?

I am extremely disheartened but me and Sabrina will soldier on knowing that time is running out for the dogs.
