The most horrifying and shocking news I've ever heard. Just got to know that our "awesome" government/council is launching something really "humanity".

Dog Catching Competition!

A barbaric, inhumanity, brainless, ridiculous, fucked up action to be make. Some more, very interesting and lucrative prize money is given to the winners.

The proof?

with this: (the details provided by the website)

Quoted from Cleopatra the Labrador blog:

I read with horror an advertisement on the Selayang Municipal Council’s website in Malaysia. See This advertisement was for a Dog Catching Competition where lucrative prize money was being offered to individuals who could catch the most dogs!

How could the council even come up with such an idea? Which half sane or decent human being managed to come up with such a cruel and ridiculous idea? The competition would only encourage more cruelty towards these helpless animals. (Bear in mind that these stray dogs that are on the streets are due to our own negligence).

What shocked me even more was the fact that the council has openly stated that it will not be held responsible for any injury or damage caused by the individuals to the general public or themselves in their attempts to catch these stray dogs. The only requirement was that these dogs that care caught be brought in alive. This in my opinion would only encourage the would be dog catchers to physically harm the dogs prior to taking them into the council. The council does not seem to care for the welfare of the dogs that are brought in as there was no statement anywhere in their advertisement stating that the dogs that are caught must be caught in a humane manner.

Other than that I also believe that this competition would actually encourage people who are out to make easy money to steal dogs!!! So I would also like to warn all dog owners to please bring your dogs indoors to keep them safe from these potential dog thieves!!!

I think that the actions of the Selayang Municipal Council in organizing such a competition is not just irresponsible, but down right BARBARIC!!!

I would like to plead to the government and the authorities to look into this matter and stop this campaign immediately. We should be a nation that cares for all living creatures, and I believe that all religions including Islam teaches us to be kind to all of God’s creatures. There are other ways and means to curb the stray population in this country. A number of groups and organizations like the SPCA and PAWS are working hard to educate the public via spay and neuter campaigns.

If we let the Selayang Municipal Council get away with their barbaric dog catching competition, we are only encouraging the people that cruelty is an acceptable way of life. And I sincerely believe that Malaysians do not want to be seen by the world as a nation that sanctions cruelty to animals.

I also urge that the press highlight this horrific campaign by the Selayang Municipal Council in a bid to stop them from carrying out their nasty plans. I also urge all individuals to NOT take part in the competition in order to preserve our integrity as decent human beings

I would like to call upon all individuals to speak up against the Selayang Municipal Council for organizing this BARBARIC competition. You can do this by highlighting this case in your blogs, by emailing all your contacts and by writing to the press....

I am appealing to all readers of my blog, Malaysian readers and international readers, to write to the Malaysian press to highlight this case. The email addresses are

International organizations that you can write to:

We can make a difference if each one of us takes the initiative to spread this horrific news, and take the time to just write a short note to all of the local papers as well as the international organisations mentioned above. If there are any other organizations that we can write to, please let me know...

Please please people. Save the poor dogs :( 50th years of Merdeka but why aren't they civilised?
