China prepares for 2008 Olympics
   In preparation for the Olympic Games to be held in Beijing in 2008, China has decided to tackle the problem of stray dogs.  Due to fears of rabies, these animals are generally not eaten and have become widespread in some cities.  Instead of introducing a plan of spay and neuter as has been done in more civilized countries the Chinese solution is far more brutal.
   Long poles with a wire loop at one end are used by dog wardens throughout the world as an efficient and safe method of catching dogs.  But in China the procedure is performed by a two man team.  While one man holds the dog helpless with his pole, his partner beats the dog to death with another pole. This is done with government approval and these bands of killers roam the city streets slaughtering any dogs they find.
   Pet dog ownership is not encouraged in China, due both to the Chinese obsession with eating anything that moves and to Mao Tse Tung's declaration of this to be a symbol of the bourgeoisie.
