Dogs stranded on island
Exactly like man does with garbage, in the same way the residents of the malaysian island Pulau Ketam have decided to take care of the 'dogs surplus' problem.
"What to do with them?"
"Uhm" - the smart one of the village answered - "I think i have a great idea! You remember that isolated and unlivable island we saw the other day?
Well, lets just gather all the dogs and dump them there! Sure they cannot swim all the way back here, and they will most probably die of starvation, injuries and what else... so we have it sorted this way!
Lets do a happy dance now...."
... and this is the way another group of heartless (and brainless) humans decided to show compassion towards our fellow earthlings.
At the same time.. action causes reaction, so there are already people trying to help and rescue the abandoned dogs. Please read the following appeal for the dogs:
"About 300 stray dogs were rounded up by Pulau Ketam residents and deported to an isolated island to fend for themselves.
Over half of them are already dead and the remaining ones may not live long. A rescue mission is being mounted and your help is needed.
Please read the full story here.
The residents of Pulau Ketam sent some 300 stray dogs to exile on a remote island where the harsh conditions almost certainly guarantee a horrible death.
Of the 300 dogs sent there, more than three-quarters are presumed to be already dead. I traveled to the island with Sabrina Yeap of Furry Friends Farm and managed to save only one dog on this reconnaissance trip.
We did see several other starving and dying dogs along the mangrove shore. I am mounting an urgent rescue mission to capture and transport the remaining survivors back to Sabrina's Furry Friends Farm animal shelter.
But time is running out and there might be only skeletons and carcasses left to collect on our next trip. Boat hire is expensive there. It is a tourist area and it has already cost me a few hundred ringgit for boat hire alone, so far. The rescued dogs cannot be transported on the regular ferries.
Almost nobody will lift a finger to help without a fee. This is understandable. The locals are already shaking their heads in disbelief that there are outsiders who want to save the animals they so casually discarded."
