Video of Protest Outside DBKL Pound, Setapak

Dear all Luna G has so kindly taken a video of the Protest by animal lovers outside DBKL Dog Pound Protest @ Air Panas, Setapak @ 7th February 2009, Saturday. Click on this link to watch video:

Also read the Star report dated February 18, 2009 on the follow-up after the Protest. As usual the KL Mayor gives a lame excuse that the media sensationalized the killings. End of story. Ya-lah, kawan. Malaysia Boleh-kan?
By the way, such cruelty was taking place under the very nose of SPCA whose Klinik Kembiri was sharing premises at the very place the alleged cruelty took place. Why did SPCA remain silent about this?

Foie Gras - A Delicacy of Despair

Message From PETA to all Malaysians:

Vietnamese chef Bobby Chinn will be hosting a cooking demonstration and other events in Kuala Lumpur at the end of this week.

As you may know, Chinn uses foie gras, which is made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of ducks and geese who have been cruelly force-fed, in many of his recipes.

Please join PETA in making sure the animals' side of the story is told: send letters to the editors of local media today explaining that Chin should be ashamed of promoting cruelty to animals!

Please send your letter to the following top newspapers (of course, you're welcome to write to more!):

· The Star:

· Malay Mail:

· The New Straits Times:

Malaysia Kini :

One published letter has the potential to be read by thousands of people! To make sure that your letter has a good chance of being published, follow these tips:

· Put "Letter to the Editor" in the subject line of e-mails.

· Be brief! Sometimes, one short, pithy paragraph is enough – try to stay under 300 words (about one typed page). Editors are less likely to print long letters.

· Make sure that you include your name, address and telephone number in your letter. Some newspapers verify authorship before printing letters.

The following talking points about the cruelty behind foie gras may be helpful to you in writing your letter:

Foie gras, French for "fatty liver", is made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of male ducks and geese. The birds are kept in tiny wire cages or packed into sheds. Pipes are repeatedly shoved down the birds' throats, and up to 4 pounds of grain and fat are pumped into their stomachs two or three times every day.

The pipes puncture many birds' throats, sometimes causing the animals to bleed to death. This cruel procedure causes the birds' livers to become diseased and swell to up to 10 times their normal size.

Many birds raised for foie gras become too sick to stand up. The birds who survive the force-feeding are killed, and their livers are sold for foie gras.

People around the world have spoken out against the cruelty of foie gras. In 2004, California passed a law banning the sale and production of foie gras, effective in 2012. Foie gras production has been outlawed in the UK , Germany , the Czech Republic , Finland , Luxembourg , Norway , Poland , Sweden , Switzerland and Denmark .

Can We Ever Hope To See A Pix Like This Involving Malaysian Authorities?

Australian Firefighter David Tree shares his water with an injured Koala that got trapped in the wildfire at Mirboo North, Victoria, Australia.

I saved this pix earlier to put up on the blog today. To my surprise the Star newspaper carried it on its front page today. I guess I am not the only one deeply touched by this pix.

I'd like to ask all Malaysians if we can ever hope to see a Malaysian municipal council officer, Wildlife officer or someone from the Department of Veterinary Services in such a pix as this.

Instead we have photos of council officers abusing animals and Wildlife and DVS officers turning a blind eye and deaf ear to reports of abuse.

I shall never forget that baby elephant starved and ribs sticking out so called "rescued" by Wildlife Dept from a resort in Melaka. That little baby eventually died and the papers reported no action taken against that resort.

No! Until we have a new, righteous govt for Malaysia, I don't think I will see a moving photo like this involving any Malaysian authority or rescue service.

We might see looting of people's houses after a wildfire, like during the recent Bukit Antarabangsa landslide. But helping people? Nahhh. And helping animals? What do you think?

Watch 360 tonight at 9:00 pm to see what the DBKL authorities have to say after being cornered by 360 crew on tape with eye-witnessing claiming they were bashing dogs and drowning cats. Footage of the Protest last Saturday could be in too as someone who attended the Protest said the 360 host was also there at the Protest.

How To Get To The DBKL Pound Tomorrow

Those attending the peaceful protest tomorrow at 11:00 am are reminded by the organizers to please bring a candle each to show your angst for each dog and cat allegedly tortured to death by the authorities. See map below on how to get there:

TV3 Expose featured in The Star

Below is the link to a report in The Star today after the 360 programme on TV3 featured dogs and cats inhumanely killed by DBKL officers. Check out the comments of the Mayor and Deputy FT Minister.

All I can say is, "Yeah, right!" People have been complaining for years and only when an undercover journalist takes pix and photos are splashed on tv and newspapers then they run around flustered as if "outraged" and vowing to do something. (sigh)

Protest Outside DBKL Setapak on Saturday

Below is a NOTICE from Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better:

Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better and friends are thinking of holding a peaceful protest outside the DBKL dog pound in Setapak this Saturday at about 11.00am.

This is to protest over the ghastly and cruel way stray dogs and cats are killed at the pound. If you had watched 360 Degrees on Wednesday night over TV3, you would have seen how these dastardly individuals who call themselves human beings broke the dogs' necks and dragged them around until they died.

We have to show the authorities that we, as tax payers, will not condone such brutality.

Your support is important. Please respond if you will be able to make it.
Unless we put our foot down, stray dogs and cats will continue to suffer under these beasts.

Write to: malaysiandogsdeservebetter@gmail.comif you are interested in participating.

Good Show Yesterday!

I must congratulate 360 for a fair coverage yesterday of the municipal council's brutality towards stray dogs and cats. It is a subject not often raised by the media, least of all television and for that I must say hats off to 360 and its excellent host Mazidul Akmal Sidik.

Those who were happy with the coverage too please call TV3 at 03 - 77266333 and ask for 360. Give your comments directly to 360 or write to

Your encouragement will push animal welfare issues to the forefront in the media. RSC also informed Al Jazeera about TV3's coverage before the programme and asked them to please watch and realize such atrocious things are happening and condoned by legitimate govt bodies and please highlight them too. They expressed their interest and said they would look into it.

Watch 360 on TV3 tonight at 9 pm

Watch the programme 360 at 9 pm on TV3 tonight featuring Malaysian municipal councils allegedly battering and drowning dogs and cats.

The very people who are supposed to protect animals and act on abuse reports are allegedly abusing them.

This is the info we received from people who saw the trailer. Being TV3 and highly controlled media, we don't know how fair the coverage will be. But please watch nevertheless, and if you feel the coverage is fair, please call TV3 and congratulate them on a job well done. This gesture will push animal welfare issues to the forefront. Thank you.
