China story of the day

A county in southwestern China has killed as many as 50,000 dogs in a
government-ordered campaign following the deaths of three local people
from rabies.

The five-day massacre in Yunnan province’s Mouding county that
ended on Sunday 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 to death on the spot, it said.

Other killing teams entered villages at night creating noise to get
dogs barking, then homing in on their prey. Owners were offered five
yuan (34p) per animal to kill their own dogs before the teams were sent
in, it said. (AOL News)
