Apparently the evil folks of Pulau Ketam are at it again and this time around the tale told to us is far more sordid than the one where they dumped dogs on an island some years ago.
Apparently, the guy who built the dog traps and helped catch the dogs to be transported to the island is still making use of the traps - but this time around it is to catch dogs and keep them in an enclosure for some months pending euthanasia. (He told us this himself.)
The dogs are put down by the MPK dog catching team which goes there a few times a year. That many dogs kept in one place - we are imagining copulation taking place and newborn puppies growing into young dogs as they await in the enclosures for their grisly deaths. Or are the dogs being bred to make the numbers for every euthanasia session?
This has been going on very quietly. After interrogating several individuals, we were told that the said person was paid RM25 per dog. When we were told this was happening there - some of our members discretely went in to investigate and to bust the euthanasia party if it was going on.
However, they could not find any dog catchers on the island today but as they carried on with their sleuthing, they stumbled upon a morbid sight where several dead dogs were packed in plastic bags and kept in a corner of the island.
The dog-catchers loops were also there. There was some blood and a broken loop appeared to still be around the neck of one of the dead dogs. MDDB cannot let this happen. The last time the fiasco happened there was a plan to neuter and release the dogs - so what happened since?
We immediately contacted PAWS and there is a plan for several NGO to work out a plan and TNRM the dogs there. we have also called the relevant people in MPK and told them to stop the exercise.
We will also get the help of the relevant local personalities to drive in the point that the villagers have no choice but to adhere to the TNRM exercise. They cannot be allowed to continue generating canine-related scandals. PLEASE SHARE THIS AROUND AND BOYCOTT PULAU KETAM UNTIL THE RESIDENTS GROW A HEART AND SHOW SOME COMPASSION FOR THE POOR DOGS.
The dogs did not parachute there - they were brought to the island by the very people who are killing them now. They were given every opportunity to neuter their dogs - but they chose not to.
