You only get one dog!

Nov. 8, 2006 — First it was one child. Now authorities say Beijing families will be allowed only one dog.

The restriction is part of efforts to stamp out rabies, state media said Wednesday. It follows a campaign in August in which thousands of dogs were killed in order to fight the disease.

China's capital will institute a "one dog" policy for each household in nine areas, the official Xinhua News Agency said

I can understand this.. 300 or so people are killed by rabies.. and rabies is *NOT* a fun thing to die from...

Sadly if people can't take care of them I guess this policy is a good thing. I wonder if all those thousands of dogs had rabies. :hmm:

I met a Chinese woman when I was on vacation one time, and she said the Chinese will eat anything.

In implementing their one child policy they have destroyed extended families. No cousins, no aunts or uncles. It's nice they take overpopulation so seriously, but look where it's gotten them. There are more males than females there now, because females are 'worth less'. Well, now that they're scarce, I bet they're worth a lot more now!

And wouldn't a spay/neuter program help more than limiting the number of dogs a family can own?

Making sure owners immunize their dogs against rabies would make the most sense. Does it really matter how many dogs someone has. 10 dogs all immunized is better then one dog that isn't.

They should restrict numbers of pets owned by people and number of children bred, as far as I am concerned, all over the world!

LOL ethyl, re how many can they eat???

One is a lonely number though. Two would be ok.

China seems to like to restrict things over ther. I would think having a Spay/Nuetering program and mandtory shot program for people with pets would be a better idea.

isnt it the other way around... more females to males? i know what the one child rule is overturned if the first born is not a son, then they can give it anther bash. which ever way it is.. they are essentially breeding themselves out. i

re to the vacc against rabies.. great in theory. but many of these ppl are too poor to do that kind of thing. it happens all over the world. ppl in the lower poverty bracket have stacks of animals, and little care is given to the health side of things. i see it all to often in the industry
