Don't Blame The Dog Eaters, Blame The Dog Owners!

Popularity 1Viewed 2082 times 2016-6-28 18:27 |System category:News| Blame, dog, owners

The huge number of stray dogs in Chinese cities is the result of irresponsible dog owners abandoning their pets after they have had a good time with them.  Many Chinese parents buy dogs for their kids to play with.  After a while the kids abandon their pets for the more fun internet games.  These dogs end up as strays, scavenging in rubbish heaps, attacking and terrorizing people young and old, being a public nuisance.  They are also rabies carriers, a public health risk.  And they multiply themselves many times over during their lifetime, populating the cities with even more strays! Looked at objectively, the dog meat eaters are helping society keep the stray numbers down, although their slaughtering methods are sometimes questionable. Eating dog meat is a cultural thing and it is a tradition that goes back many centuries!  No one, least of all the foreigners, has the right to demand that the Chinese abandon their traditional delicacy!  Dog lovers should educate the public on responsible dog ownership.  They are barking up the wrong tree going after the dog meat eaters!

  • Passengers Are Jointly Liable with Drunk Drivers! 2018-2-17 11:33

    HailChina!: You could take it further and give passengers tickets for speeding. I had to give this guy a lift to work for a while a while ago and I would often sp ...
    You example is rarely encountered, most passengers know their driver well, whether he has been drinking, many in fact go drinking with him, so no excuse for not knowing he is half drunk.
    Whatever the case, I support this law; it forces passengers to check on driver.
