Just saw this today and it made my blood boil. It's one thing to catch homeless dogs and putting them into a shelter where they might be lucky enough to find a home but to hold a contest to capture these poor unlucky animals is just ridiculous. I find it totally an inappropriate way to solve an issue. For sure a stray dog might be dangerous but to just go out on a witch hunt for them is inhuman.

It's as though we are magically teleported back in time. I can just imagine everyone dress in black carrying pitch forks and lanterns prowling the streets at night looking for this poor animals. Haven't they suffered enough ?!?!?!

To: Selayang Council

We, the undersigned, strongly protest the current dog hunting competition instigated by the Selayang Council( reported in Sin Chew(4th Sept, 2007). We strongly disagree with such a campaign to catch stray dogs for prize money which can only lead to more animal abuse and animal deaths. Such a barbaric campaign is totally irresponsible and ineffective in curbing and resolving the issue of stray animals in the city. We demand that the campaign be stopped and an alternative campaign be put in place using the so called prize money. We would also like to appeal to the city councils across the country, animal lovers and all compassionate citizens of this good country to support our protest against such a disgusting show of inhumanity.
