I do not wish to bring down everyone's Happy Easter, but I have been so very disturbed since I heard about this a few days ago, that I have to speak out!
Apparently, in preparation for the Olympics, the Chinese govenment has ordered the round-up of thousand of cats.
Working under the misguided premise that these cats bring disease, they have been sending them to death camps, even convincing owners to turn in their own pets!
The Chinese govenment does not have a very good record with human rights, let alone animal rights, but this is horrible even by Chinese standards!
www.alleycats.org has a petition on their website to oppose the trapping and killing of Beijing's cats. Please sign it so we can bring awareness to this atrocity.
For those of you who have blogs, it would be great if you could put a link to their website.
