Do Not Read This Chelsea!

Communists are bad. I joke about Taylor Hicks killing puppies, but the Chinese government has actually killed over 50,000 dogs in the country.

The AP writes in their article:
"China slaughtered 50,000 dogs in a government-ordered crackdown after three people died of rabies, sparking unusually pointed criticism in state media Tuesday and an outcry from animal-rights activists.

Health experts said only 3 percent of dogs are vaccinated against rabies and more than 2,000 people die of the disease each year.

The five-day slaughter in Mouding county in Yunnan province in southwestern China ended Sunday and spared only military guard dogs and police canine units, state media reported.

Dogs being walked were seized from their owners and beaten to death on the spot, the Shanghai Daily newspaper reported. Led by the county police chief, killing teams entered villages at night creating noise to get dogs barking, then beat the animals to death, the reports said.

Owners were offered 63 cents per animal to kill their own dogs before the teams were sent in, they said."

On another communist note - Fidel Castro has a failing pooper and has called his brother to take his place. I'm sure the Cubans are overjoyed.
