Malaysia's Inhumane Dog-Catching Competition!


Price awards to encourage this inhumane competition are:

1st price MYR15,000 (US$4,300)

2nd price MYR13,000 (US$3,700)

3rd price MYR11,000 (US$3,100)



We believe, this inhumane competition will not only subject stray/wild dogs to cruelty, but will also cause dognapping of dogs that belong to human families as well, because it will be a lot easier and faster to fulfill the prize eligibility.

"Anyone who wishes to rear the dogs are welcome to pick them up, otherwise we would dispose of them through the council’s own methods,” said the State Assemblyman of Rawang, Tang See Hang, as shown in the photo above grinning while catching a cardboard mock-up helpless mama dog by using a yellow ribboned neck loop, an inhumane method to capture dogs.
