http://www.wnd.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=51388 You have to beat rabies somehow, but this seems over the top. The idea of someone's pet dog being taken away as they were on a walk and beating the dog to death seems a little over the top... and probably not that effective. My favourite quote has to be from PETA: ""We are urging everyone to actively boycott anything from China, given the bludgeoning killing of thousands of dogs and examples of cruelty towards animals," said Ingrid Newkirk, a PETA official." If we boycott everything from China... that would not leave much would it? Would we have to stop eating Chinese food as well?
