Recently, CatsZone got heavily involved into a well publicized local community confliction caused by stray cats over population problem in Hangzhou, China. Couple of months ago, some stray cats over population problem has been raised in a residential community with the name of “WuLing Garden Apartments”. those people don’t like strayed cats in this community complained to media in the name of all resident in WuLing Garden that, those strayed cats in the area cause flea and other sanitary problem, and claim they want to get ride of them by kill all these cats. There have been cases those people who don’t like cats committed maltreatment over the cats.
After being informed of this story, CatsZone voluntary staff went to the residential area and started to communicate with the residents, CatsZone staff brought the idea that people should treat animal with respect and tell residents desex program can be used to solve over population problem, and cruelty towards animals should not be tolerant. Many media in this area, such as TV media program, ‘News 60 Mins’, ‘Entering today’, and some newspapers, have interviewed CatsZone and reported this story. It becomes a hot topic in this area.
Last week, the confict escalated. With the help of CatsZone (the ouline of the letter is provided by CatsZone), 73 residents composed a joint letter plea the rights of live for those tray cats. The letter is handed into local authority 16 Nov 2006. The letter say ‘stray cats problem can not be handled by commit cruelty towards those cats and killing them, desex program should be used instead’. And ‘people’s attitudes towards those cats reflect the relationship between the human, the animals and the nature, determine the development of civilization in the city’. The whole letter emphasised one idea that ’human should co-exist with animals in harmony’. This article was published on ‘Hangzhou daily’ at the same day, it is a popular newspaper speaks a lot on behalf of local authority, not surprisingly, more reported and public discussion and debates follows this news report. With the help of Chinese Companion Animals Protection Network (CCAPN http://www.ccapn.ngo.cn ), we received many international support for our humane cats control debate. Great thanks for all these organizations and friends who send us supportive letter on this issue!
