Sorry if any of that was harsh.. but ya know....
I totally understand your anger, Glitch. You are an animal lover like me and sickening abuse like this makes me want to retaliate!
The real evil here is the Chinese government, and NOT the Chinese people. My sister has been living in Shanghai for 2 years for work. She is single, but has 2 cats and a dog. She has had the opportunity to educate many people there about how pets are treated in the US (and how they SHOULD be treated in China). She says that many of her neighbors and work friends have come to really
love her cats and her dog in a way that they've never experienced (most have never had a pet since they can barely feed their families, let alone a pet).
I think education is the key here, but the gov't is a major stumbling block since they can censor anything
. I have sent several of these links to my sister and she is circulating them to everyone she knows in China. She said that some of the Chinese are reluctant to pass on the emails but most are willing and do not want the world to see them as inhumane animal abusers
I would encourage everyone to send these horrible stories to everyone you know, especially if you know people in China. The internet is a powerful tool and the Chinese gov't needs to know that not only are we aware of these horrors, but we'll spread the word to EVERYONE and boycott their products, which could have a horrible impact on their reputation and economy. Change is never faster than when it effects the pocketbook.
