Re: [melmel] DBKL DOG POUND CRUELTY

from Ruth blog :

More ghastly horror revelations from UPM torture chamber (get the dogs from DBKL Dog Pound )

I was horrified when inundated with more horror revelations from this institution of higher learning (learning? - ha! ha! ha! lunacy may be more correct) UPM. There is this torture chamber behind the post-mortem room (used to be called the elephant room Ďcos elephants used to be kept there) where healthy dogs and cats which are about to be ĎTORTUREDí are kept. If there is a vetís name displayed, it means that that animal is meant for that particular ĎTORTURERí. It is his/her project and these are mainly PHD students and are mostly foreigners.

THIS PLACE IS IN HORRENDOUS, APPALLING, DREADFUL CONDITION. THE CAGES ARE OLD AND RUSTY. THE ANIMALS HOUSED THERE (WAITING TO BE ĎTORTUREDí) SWIM IN THEIR FAECES AND WHETHER THEY ARE FED OR NOT DEPENDS ON THE VET IN CHARGE OF THE PROJECT (THE ANIMAL USED). ONE CAN EVEN HEAR THE PITIFUL CRIES OF THE ANIMALS. IF THE DOG DIES DUE TO STARVATION OR WHATEVER REASON, THEY CAN JUST EASILY OBTAIN ANOTHER ONE FROM THE POUND. AFTER ALL, THERE IS ENDLESS SUPPLY THANKS TO IRRESPONSIBLE PET OWNERS, BREEDERS, ETC., ETC.

These animals are used for research on therapy, for example, cancer, where a long period is required to produce the results. Invasive methods are used on healthy animals, similar to what is done by Eukanuba/IAMS, Hills for their prescription diet. This division is under the department of postgraduate studies.

Apparently, UPM is trying for apex university status so that they can get more funds, I believe, that comes with such status (itís always about $$$, isnít it?). To achieve that, the university must have lots of postgraduate students especially foreign students ($$$ again). It seems that UVH is always in the red - being overstaffed, high wastages, etc. Funds is never enough. As such, UVH, although they are aware of this torture and cruelty going on, choose to keep silent because they need funds and this faculty (dept. of postgraduate studies) generates the funds.

Donít these people feel anything to see suffering? We were told that the lecturers in this faculty are vets but they could be specialists in horses, chickens, etc. They know nothing about dogs/cats except what they do in their practical. Neither do they know anything about healing animals because they donít have hands-on experience, to them they are just that - animals.

For money, I believe some people will sell their souls to the devil. For money, they will condone all kinds of inhumane acts on helpless and innocent creatures which canít speak for themselves nor defend themselves. Iím not surprised if one day children will be used as children are also helpless and innocent.

After the incident of the dog not fully euthanised, it seems the lecturer who obviously got a shelling ordered all trainee vets to make sure that all dogs are put-to-sleep at 5 pm. Reason: the lecturer wants to go home.

Someone mentions that one of the senior vets in UVH helps in Mercy Malaysia. How is it that deeds of cruelty is happening on home ground and nothing is done? I believe I can answer that. First, these are just animals and it matters not what is done to them. Second, the Veterinary Officers(VOs) are not allowed to voice out anything because the university needs the funds.

I marvel that the people - trainee vets, the lecturers and the torturers - can go home peacefully and spend time with their family. I hope the dead dogs will haunt them in their dreams and stalk their every waking moment.

I have a suggestion for UPM. Why donít they adopt cost-cutting measures? Why have 20 people hanging around doing nothing when 1 or 2 will suffice? Get rid of the parasites and you may not need so much funds.

I have heard and read foreigners commending Malaysians for being kind people. Of course, we are kind - to allow them to come into our country to conduct acts of cruelty but I guess to many, itís ok as they are only using the animals to do research.
