A minority of us went to help and contribute to the SSPCA - (Sarawak Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Animals) at 6 1/2 mile.

There were people from New Century Lions Club Kuching Emerald and Lodge School Alumni. and 3 from Photoborneo.com

It was my first time going to SSPCA and there is no words to express my feelings, it was all heart wrenching moments.

Furthermore to hear the stories of the care taker of SSPCA, it was beyond my expectation of what we humans are really capable of doing - cold and heartless.

I saw cat with the paw chop off, a cat with an eye missing. and there were reports on dogs that had the tail chop off, leaving it infested with maggots. Some tied up to steel drain pipes and left to die.

Just within the 2 hours there, one of the workers found a box of kittens being dump right outside of the SSPCA centre. The box were all damp due to the heavy rain. Imagine how the cats gone through the night.

And later, an old lady drag her dog from her car and dump it to the center with the reason "too many dogs at home".

Well can't say all are bad, there are nice people and there are people with horrible hearts whom should be cursed

Here are some photos taken.

HOW ABOUT THIS FOR CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ........



Cat Fight Over China's Feline Meat Trade
Monday March 09, 2009

Holly Williams in China

"It cost me seven Renminbi a pound," a man told me, pointing at a hessian sack. He had paid about 70p for cat meat at a southern China market.

In China, the trade in live cat meat thrives but there is growing opposition.

As we chatted, the bag seemed to move by itself, emitting a plaintive 'meowing' sound.

The man had just bought four live cats, which he told me he had served up later that day to diners in his restaurant.

In China, the trade in live cat meat is thriving. By some estimates, 10 000 cats are sold and eaten every day in one city alone - mainly served up as kebabs or in Chinese-style hotpot.

Yet, as we filmed a row of cat traders in the market, they decided they didn't want us there. Thrusting their hands in the camera, a group of them wrestled us onto the street.

In another market, a cat dealer even attacked us with a wooden stick.

"Get lost," he shouted at me after seeing our camera. "You foreigners stay out of China's business."

For many Chinese people - especially in the country's south - eating cat is a perfectly normal tradition.

We visited a restaurant in the city of Guangzhou that specialises in what the Chinese call 'wild taste'.

The waitress showed us cages full of live animals - turtles, snakes, pheasants and domesticated cat.

A chef tried to sell us a dish called Dragon, Tiger, Phoenix - a stew of snake, pheasant and cat meat.

But now, the eating of cat meat has become a cultural battleground in China as animal rights activists face off against traditionalists.

It is also highlighted divisions between China's new middle class - for whom having a pet is a status symbol - against those here who are themselves struggling to survive, and see no need for animal rights.

Barbarians. They're barbarians. Otherwise, how could they eat cat meat?

Cat protection groups have sprung up in cities across China.

Frustrated by their government, they stage their own raids - storming into restaurants and markets, attempting to shame people out of eating cat.

n China, there is no law at all against animal cruelty. The trader even had a certificate to prove what he was doing was legal.

We accompanied another group of campaigners to a village butcher known to sell cat meat. They carried cages hoping to rescue any animals they found alive.

But when we got there it was too late. All the butcher had in stock were four cats that had already been killed, skinned and frozen.

As the campaigners attempted to confiscate her knives and meat hooks, I asked what she felt as she butchered the cats. "Nothing at all," she replied.

What makes it worse for Chinese cat lovers is that many of the animals sold for their meat are not farmed, but stolen from their owners.

I met with a group of people who told me they had all lost pet cats to thieves who trap and sell them for their meat.

"Barbarians. They're barbarians," said Wu Xue, whose cat disappeared from her doorstep late last year. "Otherwise, how could they eat cat meat?"

The Chinese have been eating cat for centuries but the practice has now opened a wound in this country, pitting those who believe it must end against others who say it is simply part of Chinese culture.

The China chinese eat dogs, cats, horse, ostrich, rabbits, crocodile, critters, and whatever u can think of.

Esp. in winter, they eat a lot of dog meat so that they can withstand the cold weather.

if you go to YouTube, you can also find video of how they catch and treat dogs for sale in the market.

many dogs all cramped up in a basket just like chickens.

sad but true!
