While discussing the Canine Control Bill in a meeting, a member of Parliment, (Tole'afoa Apulu Fa'afisi), proposed to the government that the way to deal with the stray dog proplem, was to use dogs as animal feed, and even export it.

What else can you expect from an Asian country? Why don't the government start spay/neuter programmes and trying to educate the ignorant and indifferent masses about animal welfare and care instead of suggesting the sick and disgusting idea that these stray dogs be used as food? These countries really are at the bottom of the cess-pit of depravity, cruelty, brutality and inhumanity.

The eyes say it all. How any human can look into an animal's eyes and know that they are going to be responsible for the death in terror of that animal for no good reason other than to use it for an unnecessary food source I simply do not know. I don't know where humans get the idea that they are so important that they can use animals for whatever they please. Every day millions of animals are brutally slaughtered to satisfy the gargantuan appetite of humans for meat. The picture of that dog above is heartbreaking.

S & N for those posting negatvely about Asia you are showing your prejudice and it is not pretty. We here in the USA practice the same horrendous acts! PETA has a kill rate of 90% on all animals that enter their supposed shelters, yes healthly animals that could be adopted. We have many kill shelters throught the country, or how about the horse kill and ship meat to Europe that is going to open up in New Mexico. So please sign any and ALL petitions to help alleviate animal cruelty anywhere and everywhere it is happening but do NOT spew your prejudices on other countries, when there is son much we need too correct here in our own country. As always Cher thank you for all you do.

What a totally disgusting idea.
Every country in the world seems to have a problem with abandoned / feral dogs and cats running wild and breeding like the proverbial rabbits.
Surely, it is not beyond the intelligence levels of people in the worlds governments, to bring in laws demanding that animal breeders should be licensed (at a very high annual cost) and that all animals sold by breeders must be sterilised BEFORE sale.
Also make it a crime punishable by heavy fines (maybe 50 or 100 times the cost of a spay / neuter operation) to own an un-sterilised animal.
The revenue raised from such license fees and fines could then be used to help cover the costs of trap/neuter/release programs.
