Recently, I have heard a lot of horror stories about the shooting of dogs in public. Recently in October, there was a shooting of a dog in a school compound that traumatized the students. It was said that the Ipoh Town Council officers went to a school and shot a harmless dog, sleeping behind the toilet. They did not kill the dog on the first shot and it was wailing in pain. Instead they used a meat hook on the live dog to carry it away.
The a few months ago, there was a cruel shooting of 13 dogs in owner’s compound. Anyone who have seen the photos could imagine the trauma the owner went (and still going) through to have 13 loved dogs shot dead in his own house. Today, as I was paying my weekly visit to Remembering Shena Blog , I came across the below petition
I urge everyone who thinks that this is wrong and thinks that animals should be treated with respect, please sign the petition.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
