Our Solution to End Stolen Dogs in Yulin
We're not claiming our plan is perfect, but unlike Marc Ching who stole his idea, we came up with a real world solution
In our story Marc Ching Microchipping Dogs Is Idiotic, we explained why his stolen idea is doomed to failure, but it would not be fair to say he is an idiot without putting out our own proposal.
Here is a quick run down on why Marc Chings 'Microchip Canine Initiative' was idiotic and doomed to failure
We won't even address the costs involved, but even if a dog in China gets Microchipped, The most expensive Microchip scanner will still miss picking up the chip for a multitude of reasons, many of which are the same exact conditions that would take place in Yulin.
Even if there was a way to overcome all the inherent microchip problems. How would you prevent any of these situations from happening?
So as you can see spending thousands of dollars in donation money on a plan that is doomed to fail from the start s beyond retarded.
No matter what plan you dream up, certain goals must be achieved for it to work. Right now every major rescue organization's first line of defense is setting up shop outside Yulin and stopping trucks, scooters or any other vehicle carrying crates stuffed with dogs from entering Yulin.
These goals MUST be achieved:
Criminals want two things an easy score and not to bring attention to themselves. One of the very reasons why there are fewer cats than dogs in Yulin, is the simple fact cats tend to run from humans.
Criminals are lazy and would rather not have to work for their ill-gotten gains, so they will not chase a cat more than a few feet. Dogs, on the other hand, waving a piece a salami at them they come running over to you like you're their BFF.
At this moment many companies sell pet hair dyes that are semi-permanent lasting 4 to 6 washes, which in theory equates to 4 weeks and these dyes are completely non-toxic.
If an organization like Sopi Dog or HSI went to any of these pet companies that sell these dye they will gladly create a small package of powder in exchange for the free publicity for their companies. How much publicity can a company get out of a headline that reads "Hair dye saved thousands of pets from being slaughtered in Yulin"
For no cost, this company will create a small package of that a pet owner will mix with water and then dip their pet's legs, tail in or they can even brush the dye into their pet's coat. Since these dyes last around four weeks on June 1st brushing a bright pink color into your dog's coat will identify it as a pet.
I am sure others, much smarter than I can expand and refine this idea, but to us, this is the most sensible, cost-effective way to combat pets being stolen not only for the Yulin Festival but would be a valuable weapon in fighting the dog meat trade and spreading the word throughout all of southeast Asia.
If you believe this idea is plausible the only way It even gets off the ground Is If you share it, the more people se it the better the odds that someone will improve upon it or runs with it!
WE'RE NOT Interested in credit, If You want to cut and paste it onto your site, if you want to rewrite it...GO FOR IT!
Steal The Idea and make a million dollars WE DO NOT CARE!
Stopping this hideous festival and saving even one dog is more than enough reward for us.
