Dog Cull in Bali

I'm just catching up on some e-mails (it has been a busy few weeks) and spotted this one from PETA about how the Government in Bali are using strychnine poisoning to try and control rabies and reduce the population of stray dogs. Strychnine poisoning produces some of the most painful and dramatic symptoms of any toxic reaction currently known and is often used in film and literature for dramatic effect. I'm sure you will agree that this is extremely cruel and inhumane, the dogs exposed to this poison experience a great amount of suffering before eventually dying.

The most effective way to control rabies outbreaks is by mass vaccination and PETA informs me that local groups are working very hard to vaccinate as many dogs as possible.

How to Help

Please spare a minute and click here to contact the Indonesian Ambassador to the UK, His Excellency Yuri Octavian Thamrin urging him to help call off this inhumane cull of 90,000 dogs. The link will take you straight to PETA's website where you fill in very few details and click submit.
