SHANGHAI, China (AP) - A county in southwestern China has killed as<br><br>
many as 50,000 dogs in a government campaign ordered after three<br><br>
people died from rabies, official media reported Tuesday.<br><br><br><br>
The five-day massacre in Yunnan province's Mouding county spared only<br><br>
military guard dogs and police canine units, the Shanghai Daily<br><br>
reported, citing local media.<br><br><br><br>
Dogs being walked were taken from their owners and beaten on the spot,<br><br>
the newspaper said. Other killing teams entered villages at night,<br><br>
creating noise to get dogs barking, then honing in and beating them to<br><br>
death.<br><br><br><br>
Owners were offered 63 cents per animal to kill their dogs before the<br><br>
teams were sent in, the report said.<br><br><br><br>
The massacre was widely discussed on the Internet, with both legal<br><br>
scholars and animal rights activists criticizing it as crude and<br><br>
cold-blooded. The World Health Organization said more emphasis needed<br><br>
to be placed on prevention.<br><br><br><br>
``Wiping out the dogs shows these government officials didn't do their<br><br>
jobs right in protecting people from rabies in the first place,''<br><br>
Legal Daily, a newspaper run by the central government's Politics and<br><br>
Law Committee, said in an editorial in its online edition.<br><br><br><br>

That is absolutely sick, I can't imagine what it must have been like for the guardians who were told they could either kill their own dog or watch them get brutally beaten to death. Rabies has been around for a long time and there are vaccinations for it, there's no need to go around mass murdering innocent dogs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/mad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":mad:">

How was the dogs diagnosed as having "rabies"? If it is based on the negri corpuscles(which is the usual way,i think) then it is fraudulent because dogs with mere "distemper" also have the same "negri corpuscles".<br><br><br><br>
This same thing happened in Italy in the 1980s(or sometime around that decade) and rabies was hyped and hyped by the "medical" institutions,and all the dogs were killed and this was based on the wrong diagnosis tool of "negri corpuscles".<br><br><br><br>
Some medical men and women(not all though) believe that "rabies" cannot be transferred to man,and is based on the fear of "having it" which drives people to go crazy and kill.<br><br><br><br>
Though i'd like to point out in France,a rabbies "vaccination" was injected into a wolf population who were healthy anyway to begin with,but after the rabies "vaccination" all dissappeared i.e. dead.

Oh yes, and all those corpses of the 50,000 murdered dogs will become a breeding ground for disease. Seems scarier than rabies that hasn't even been confirmed.

The symptons of "rabies in humans are of similar symptons of "TB" in humans,this is corroborated by,when someone is bitten by a dog,they are given a "tetenus" injection in hospital.

It is perfectly clear what she said. You're just pretending not to understand. Your reading skills are not that poor.
