Well, in my last post, I was called conspiratorial but in this case, it's pure down, right socialism. China is now killing dogs off to destroy the rabies rampage running throughout the country. Covered here, the article goes into great detail how China is not only killing dogs, they're paying off the citizens to do it first.
Apparently, the country has a problem with rabies and instead of countering the problem, they're erasing the source:
A county in southwestern China has killed as many as 50,000 dogs in a government campaign ordered after three people died from rabies, official media reported Tuesday.
The five-day massacre in Yunnan province's Mouding county spared only military guard dogs and police canine units, the Shanghai Daily reported, citing local media.
Dogs being walked were taken from their owners and beaten on the spot, the newspaper said. Other killing teams entered villages at night, creating noise to get dogs barking, then honing in and beating them to death.
If this isn't communism at it's finest, I don't know what is.
