Jeez China, take it down a notch. Ever hear of a vaccine?

Apparently China is engaged in a massive campaign to put down all dogs within a certain radius of a town in the throes of a rabies outbreak. Check out the following:
The outrage was sparked this week, when it emerged that police and public health officials in Mouding - a county in Yunnan province - clubbed, electrocuted and buried alive 50,000 dogs to control the disease. Regardless of vaccinations, no animal was spared apart from police and army dogs.
Man, that's just terrible. Shame on you, China, shame on you.
