Let the Cat Killing Begin! China Gets Ready for Olympic Games

Well this was utterly predictable. Chinese authorities have begun rounding up any stray animal they can get their hands on so they can kill them. This is their way of putting on a pretty face for the rest of the world for the Olympics.

Thousands of pet cats in Beijing are being abandoned by their owners and sent to die in secretive government pounds as China mounts an aggressive drive to clean up the capital in preparation for the Olympic Games.

Hundreds of cats a day are being rounded and crammed into cages so small they cannot even turn around.

Then they are trucked to what animal welfare groups describe as death camps on the edges of the city.

The cull comes in the wake of a government campaign warning of the diseases cats carry and ordering residents to help clear the streets of them.

The Chinese Government is evil!!! Its like Cruella Devil all over again, but this time its not a cartoon. I think we should boycott the Olympics and China. Those poor innocent animals have feelings too. :(

Over 10,000 people condemning the London 2012 Olympic authorities callous treatment of cats.

Instead of taking them to camps we just crush them under bulldozers or starve them. Oh, and then lie about it.
The Olympics takes no prisoners.
