Almost nobody will lift a finger to help without a fee. This is understandable. The locals are already shaking their heads in disbelief that there are outsiders who want to save the animals they so casually discarded. Instead of pointing fingers and antagonizing them, we need their co-operation to help save the unfortunate creatures. In the process, we also hope to educate the islanders on better treatment of animals. It would be an impossible mission if we didn't win their hearts.
I understand that the write of this blog still have compassion and forgiveness towards the local resident but i think they just taking advantages over the rescue activities and trying to earn extra money out from people who trying to save the dogs.
It is no surprised that the municipal district office know to ill treated abandoned dogs at the streets by killing them with gun or stick cruelly in front the public. I don't know if public money was used to pay the local resident to dump the dogs to unman island by their local municipal office.
Is this the way MPK and its councillors wanted these dogs to die a painful and a 'horribly slow' death? Did the people of Pulau Ketam enjoyed the RM90.00 per dog paid to them by taxpayers' money? Just what did they do with the money? A new LCD TV? More Yam Sengs? China Dolls?
It was clear that the local residents cooperate with the municipal district office over the plan and get payment that believed come from the tax payer money. I hope that the local resident realized that this action will give them a bad reputation if they want Pulau Ketam to be a tourist spot among the oversea tourist that threat their animal better than us.
