Save Nearly 2,000 Pet Store Animals From Death

Target: Leung Siu-fai, Director of the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department

Goal: Stop the killing of nearly 2,000 small animals.

After several people tested positive for COVID at a pet store in Hong Kong, the government announced they will be killing nearly 2,000 small animals to help prevent the spread of the virus. These animals could include hamsters and chinchillas. Several hamsters brought from the Netherlands to this pet shop reportedly tested positive, therefore infecting the employees. The city is also stopping the selling and import of hamsters and small animals.

Hong Kong authorities are not ruling out the possible transmission from animal to human of these COVID cases. Owners of hamsters that were bought after January 7th must quarantine as well as hand their hamsters over to be killed in a “humane way.” If the hamster was bought before this date, the owners and animals will be tested and if their pets are positive they must quarantine. Hong Kong’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals voiced their concerns and urged the government to possibly change their approach.

Call on Hong Kong’s leaders to stop this unnecessary slaughter of innocent creatures.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Leung Siu-fai,

The nearly 2,000 small animals who are slated to be put to death after pet store patrons tested positive for COVID do not deserve to be killed. Please review this approach and come up with a different less cruel way to handle this situation. Taking away people’s pets that they have already grown to love is extremely disheartening. The animals and pet owners do not deserve that. If the pet owner and pet do a mandatory quarantine together and get tested after the animals can possibly be saved. Listen to the Hong Kong Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, they are urging you to take a different approach that will in the end keep the animals safe.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    They do not have to be killed. Quarantine them. Have 1 or 2 specific workers feed them, change shavings/litter/newspapers. Once quarantine is finished, sell the animals to people. Make it illegal to have more small animals shipped to stores

  2. What a STUPID THING TO DONTO KILL INNOVENT ANIMALS WHOM NEVER ASKED TO BE SOLD IN A PET STORE!!! I TOTALLY AGREE WITH M. STEWART’S RESPONSE!!!!!

  3. Agree all comments this is horrific and cruel animals dont deserve this CRUELTY you dont kill people from spreading it how do you think its world wide. Stop now these Asian countries are cruel and no need for killings innocent animals whats wrong with the world . Bunch of cruel fuckers these people should not hand pets in and the Government deal with the people who spread it not the animals they catch it of people but dont kill them. Nothing but cruel fucking mongrels and got no heart or animal welfares these countries should not be allow to have any animals and all Middle eastern as well all cruel cunts.

  7. The concept of selling of animals in pet stores (globally) needs to be reconsidered entirely. Not only for ‘covid’ reasons but 101 others too…. Besides it being a horrible way to live, they catch many other diseases while in the store. Very sad and totally avoidable.

    The cruel inbred Asian fucks created this horrific disease & the animals pay for it. Karma will eventually wipe these cruel bastards out
