Move over Little Emperors the imperial household hound just gained some status! Maybe the Chinese will be dressing up their mutts now that a one dog policy is in effect. The restriction, according to AP is part of an effort curb to rabies deaths. This action follows closely on the heels of actions in August when thousands of dogs were killed in order to fight the disease: “In one county in the southwestern province of Yunnan, where three people had died of rabies, authorities killed 50,000 dogs, many of them beaten to death in front of their owners.” China’s capital will institute a “one dog” policy for each household in nine areas, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
Dogs in Guangdong were said to be planning secret celebrations!
