I am all hands on deck if you have a battle plan my friend, I am jsut honestly not sure how it can work here. I am not dragging my feet I am just simply out of ideas. You do the register thing and all that is well and good, but then more things suffer. I am more into an animal dieing a gruesome death within a few mins than an animal dieing a gruesome painful death over 10 years, that's what I'm all on about.
If you don't, then be prepared for farmers to be pissed off and you have no right to go bleating about how they trapped/poisoned a maruading dog or cat to defend themselves against a situation that is not of their making.
I have every right, and i will exercise it til my dieing day I do not do much other than help people helping injured animals and try and talk to students about how to care for animals etc. Not enough, probably. But I, like many, dont knwo what to do. we are ignorant, I read your post and agree, but we all now what needs to be done but most lack the ability to actually get it done in Taiwan in a smooth fashion. So again, traps and poison are horrible shit, and should not be used, you cant give me a good excuse to use them. It better to take a sledge hammer to back of their head, at least thats fast.
last month my wifes parents dog (our dogs brother) was killed with rat poison. its a roamer, I have for years taleked to them here to not let them roam, to not cage them etc. You have been here a while it seems, so you know how the metnailty is here, maybe more than I do. the best success I have had is getting htem to take their dogs (at their pig farm) out of the small steel cages, i told them I don't want to visit them if I have to be aroudn that. so that got the dogs about 3m of leg room on a leash to a pole. its a sad state.
3 days ago one of my students told me her dog died from rat poisons (right by where my dogs brother got it). as it turns out there is a biter old fuck who hates dogs, a lot. so he sets out rat poison, her fly has looked and found a couple hidden along the road. An anonymous tip with his info has been sent. but in an area where police are only good for bottling snakes in alcohol and handing out tickets to anybody they don't know the 2 times a year they actually put up a road block, you cant expect much.
so, once again........ I say, you ideas are all right, but they cannot (or should not i should say) be put into effect until other forms of animal cruelty are addressed. And if the government bans cages for dogs, then there is a bit of hypocrisy on why they should not ban it for pigs/fowl. And you and I both know that is an impossibility on todays agenda. Not saying dont try, just saying the order of operation needs adjusting because we all know the reality of what will happen, lets not lie to ourselves. probably over 90% of all chickens farmed here are already in shitty tiny little pens living a painful, chemical filled life just hating to wake up the next morning. so do we really want to not only do this to birds and pigs, but also add dogs to this liost (more than is already done I mean)?
throwing money at it wont do shit, not here. they will have a bigger budget, sure. Do you honestly feel this will be used to protect the feelingsof animals? Really...
