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.

    Unfortunately the answer is no.At least not until we get people with the passion and love for the job filling the posts. As we know the current bunch is there only to sit around and do nothing ( Gaji buta) Dont be suprised if 99% of those in the wildlife depts are not even qualified to handle animals.
    Therefore we shouldnt expect them to run to any animals rescue. This atitude is also present in all sectors of our great BOLEHland from the highest posts to the lowest. You are right to saythat change can only come when a new more just and caring goverment is in power.
