Communism & Dogs

BEIJING — First it was one child. Now authorities say Beijing families will be allowed only one dog.
The restriction is part of efforts to stamp out rabies, state media said Wednesday. It follows a campaign in August in which thousands of dogs were killed in order to fight the disease. China's capital will institute a "one dog" policy for each household in nine areas, the official Xinhua News Agency said. "Only one pet dog is allowed per household in the zones, and dangerous and large dogs will be banned. Anyone keeping an unlicensed dog will face prosecution," Xinhua said.

OH, that's just wonderful, isn't it? Great news. Excellent way of managing a problem, isn't it? I just love over regulation, don't you?

I wonder what will happen to those extra dogs that have to be removed from multiple dog households. You can bet they will be put to death. This is barbaric.

I'm sure PETA can help out. They have a lot of experience with it.
