Balinese Government Killing Dogs With Strychnine

Posted by 5 years ago | Permalink | Comments (156)

The following is a post from PETA Asia’s blog, Hot & Sour Scoop.

UPDATE: On the 21st September 2010 the Balinese government signed an agreement to work with BAWA to conduct a island wide vaccination of Bali’s dogs against rabies. This campaign is funded by WSPA.

This agreement means that the government has agreed to use vaccination to control & eliminate rabies, thereby ending the culling of Bali’s dogs. Humane euthanasia will be used for dogs already infected with the rabies virus, the others will be vaccinated.

When I think of Bali, I imagine an island heaven: surf, sun and miles and miles of beach! Recently, however, we received some horrible news – and there’s definitely trouble in paradise.

In a misguided effort to control a rising rabies epidemic on the island, Indonesian authorities have been using strychnine to cull the local stray dog population! Strychnine is a well-known poison, and its victims suffer for hours from seemingly endless convulsions, excruciating pain and anguish before finally succumbing to exhaustion or suffocation. The use of strychnine poisoning on animals has been condemned by animal protection and public health groups throughout the world.

The only effective and humane way to control rabies outbreaks is through vaccination, and the group Bali Animal Welfare Association has been working tirelessly for mass vaccination of dogs throughout the island.

AusAID, Australia’s international development funding agency, donates to the Balinese government’s rabies-control programs. While AusAID has assured us that it only contributes to vaccination programs, giving the Balinese government any money simply allows it to direct more funds towards cruel killing methods.

    Please do not kill dogs in this way .They are Gods creatures as well,whether you believe this or not.People are willing to help you re home and take care of these living beings.They are born for a reason,not just to be killed for no reason.

    sincerely Nicole

    Please stop killing the dogs inhumanely!

  • Joshua Ireland commented on August 18, 2010 at 8:46 am

    Not a good thing, I spend quite alot of time in bali… 4 months this year, and there is obviously a health issue with the dogs… but this is not the method to fix… they should immunise!!! hello!!!..
    I often think of how it would be good for someone in the know to start a small project to help the dogs become healthier, some look quite uncomfortable with rashes and such things.. I’m a chef and don’t know anything about this type of thing but would love to help…
    If anybody has any plans for something in the future I’d love to help… joshuaireland@hotmail.com..
    I can also organise extremely cheap and comfortable/clean accomodation and meals…
    thanks for your caring on this issue.

    Just turned down an offer to celebrate a wedding in Bali, this is more than disgraceful, sickened by this act of cruelty and absolute horror……bye bye Bali, you make me sick.

  • Winston commented on August 18, 2010 at 8:52 am

    This is disgusting! Please stop or you will lose all the animal loving tourists that Bali depends so much on.

    Culling is only used by the ignorant and i hope this will change in the near future!

    just sad to see what Humans are capable of

  • Michelle Bonds commented on August 18, 2010 at 8:59 am

    So etwas sollte man nicht unterstützen – auch einzelne Tropfen bringen ein Fass irgendwann zum Überlaufen. Wenn solche Länder konsequent gemieden werden, ändert sich vielleicht mal etwas.

    Andererseits gibt es bei uns in Deutschland auch genug Tierquäler, denen nichts passiert!!!!! Eine Schande ist das

  • Gerard commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:02 am

    This unfair! If ever see someone kill a dog! I’ll surely give some spanking! I swear!!!!

  • Jazmine commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I cannot believe what I’m seeing. Is this what humans have become? Is this what it means to be human today? We kill just to kill and we don’t second guess it. I am ASHAMED to be apart of this species.

  • Riekie Burger Prinsloo commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:13 am

    This is absolutely DISGRACEFUL, DISGUSTING AND HORRIFYING. PLEASE stop these horrible deeds. There are other ways – like immunization to prevent this!!

  • Mariska commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:14 am

    Stop the murdering!
    What the government has to do is giving mass sterilization and also mass vaccination, not murdering the dogs.
    As you know people, dogs are also God’s creature and they deserve to live in the earth. Please don’t hurt the dogs.
    I thought people in Bali is nice and kind; after seeing this video, I think those people are horrible.
    Hope those people will get the same punishment/treatment as what they did to the dogs.

  • nicolette' commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Please let’s use the brian God gave us and realise culling is primitive and definitely not the answer to this problem!! Asia has come under much light this week in south africa with our endanger Rhinos being killed for their horns which go to asian countries for medicine? I think asia should start taking a good look at themselves and how they respect Gods creatures and our planet!!! They have no respect for animals and feel they can do anything to them! Its upsetting disguisting and primitive! So pleae Bali let’s start thinking like intelligent beings and stop this cruelty!!!

  • Sheree commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:17 am

    And this is THE reason i will never visit Bali or other asian countries with such atroscious and disgusting (lack of) animal welfare

  • Kerrin A commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:17 am

    When I think of Bali, I certainly do NOT imagine and island heaven. It is a shit hole. Why so many people holiday there, I will never understand. This activity, in such a country does not suprise me in the slightest. Animal cruelty at its finest.

  • Maite Sánchez commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:24 am

    Me parece indignante y cruel el trato que se está dando a estos perros. ¿No se dan cuenta de que son seres vivos que sufren? Más ayudas para su protección, y menos castigos, humillaciones y asesinatos para ellos.

    Boycott to this country no more help with money and no more holidays in that country until they stop this cruelty, how can you do this?????? please learn something someday, copy the things done by the developed countries, the answer is not killing because you don’t have control, the answer is learning and respecting….but after looking at this pictures I think you can’t understand what life is all about, I would be scared as a citizen in that country.

  • le garrec commented on August 18, 2010 at 9:55 am

    C’est un véritable massacre : bravo Bali le soi-disant paradis, il faut boycotter les voyages vers cette destination. “La grandeur d’une nation se voit à la façon dont elle traite ces animaux”. Au dessous de tout. Quel honte !

    i´m sure there are other ways to solve this problem,just look at bali wellfare association.bali was known as a beautiful land with kind people
    using strychnin is the worst you can do,
    the world is wachting bali and be sure that this make us think what kind of country you are
    hoping you will stop this very cruel killing and find a grown up solution

  • Cindy Rodriguez commented on August 18, 2010 at 11:29 am

    I will never tour Bali with inhumane treatment to an animal. This is disgusting and cowardly!

  • Quinton commented on August 18, 2010 at 11:49 am

    I cannot believe in today’s day and age people still do things like this.
    They either eat dog’s or skin them alive and now even poison them with strychnine cause of rabies rising. Can’t they think a little bit further than that? There should be a more humane way of handling situations like this.
    Keep the dog’s in quarantine and if there is no hope put them down in a respectable way. The animals on this planet got as much a right to life and respect as we do.

    They will rather spend money on poison that takes several painful hours before the dog will eventually die, than spending money on trying save the animals. I feel the veterinary service, President and all the high profile’s if ever there is one should step in and do something about it. If a country can’t look after their animals I don’t see how they can look after their people.

  • Vivienne Thompson commented on August 18, 2010 at 12:26 pm

    Before everyone condems everyone in Bali think about it most likely half the people would be unaware of what is happening and they would be just as disgusted as we are. It is disgusting what they are doing. BUT remember those people are the minority not the majority. While this is horrific dont judge all the people of Bali.

  • Micki G commented on August 18, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    And WHO ” are the animals”…killing of any kind is wrong..they are living beings…no matter what your religious preference…killing innocent helpless beings is wrong…I would estimate the cost for the chemical to kill these babies is probably as much as to vacinate them…how IN-humane…

  • EVANGELINE commented on August 18, 2010 at 12:44 pm

  • Tia do Palm commented on August 18, 2010 at 1:36 pm

    Dogs planet: imagine they’re rulling and humans are their best friends. All of a sudden, an epidemy happens for humans and the dogs decide to kill them with strychnine.
    EXERCIZE SOME COMPASSION AND YOU’LL UNDERSTAND WE MUST FIND THE BEST WAY TO ACT.
    And the way you’re carrying it on in Bali is definitely the WORST WAY.

    I am not saying please, thank you or asking you.
    I am telling you that I will go over there and do this to you, government.

  • Susan Coombes commented on August 18, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    Organizations such as AUSAid, although trying to help the situation, actually allow it to escalate since they contribute funds in general. A much more effective/efficient approach would be to donate rabies vaccines, specifically, as well as send a few workers (vets and/or vet technicians) for a period of time to administer the vaccinations. Please stop the needless and cruel methods of killing these poor animals!!

  • Lena Eriksson commented on August 18, 2010 at 4:30 pm

    Btw, why do people always have to use these cruel methods to put animals down?

  • jin commented on August 18, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    this is inhumane and should be stopped now.
    These dogs needed vaccinations that the government should provide.

    Stray dogs are homeless but not worthless right? Some of them may be unwanted but killing them is not an option. why not put them in a shelter and put up for adoption? or if they are rabid and EXTREMELY ILL then thats the only time you euthanize them. (as a last resort of course)

  • Marg Durrance commented on August 18, 2010 at 6:43 pm

    I thought something had been done about this. Totally unacceptable & cruel but probably the cheapest & quickest solution they could come up with & to Hell with any compassion for the dogs who have been struggling all their miserable lives just to survive.

  • Ineke de Wild commented on August 18, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Maybe it’s better to discuridge people (in particular with little money, small houses and apparments) to keep pets at all, people do not solve lonelyness or unhappyness by having a pet, and animals are not made to serve as toys or companions for people, they are just slaves (of each other)

  • gina commented on August 18, 2010 at 8:18 pm

    im all for non-violent tactics when it comes to solving issues like this. however, most ignorant people believe two wrongs make a right. so lets poison the fuckers behind this madness. (note slight sarcasm)

    Now would be the time to implement a system of birth control for the remaining dogs.
    They suffer being alive.
    In china they use sticks. Surely Peta has the $ to fund a poison that is more humane?

  • slrw commented on August 18, 2010 at 10:35 pm

    Humans consistently demonstrate ignorance, cruelty, and complete stupidity – Animals feel physical and emotional pain the EXACT same way humans do – To treat an animal with any less respect than you would want another human to treat you or your own child, shows a complete lack of understanding and intelligence! It is so frustration to know the kind of cruelty that exists in this worlds.

    WAKE UP!! PAY ATTENTION!! And allow yourself to feel what you are putting these animals through!! Imagine yourself in pain, choking, sufficating … How does it feel?

    This is a 3rd world country and their people have suffered a lot through poverty, through tsunami and what nots.
    The poor people are kind but the ones who rule the place are always showing off their power over helpless creatures.
    I pray that they change their mind atleast for the sake of their loved ones who some day will behave the same manner towards them.
    One cannot expect the world to be a better place and be good towards you if you yourself are a rotten person.
    Killing dogs mercilessly is perhaps the only way these loosers feel powerful and they are insane.
    They will have to stop and they will. Nobody will want to visit Bali and Myself NEVER.
    They can wait till the USD exchange reaches 15K Rupiah and there is No help from any AID agencies…. and lets see how miserable they become.
    You want others to be good to you, you be Good to everyone first,
    God Bless the Animal RIght Agents and give them power to stop this.

    @Steve

    If you had any idea about world culture, you would know that most Balinese people are Hindu, not Muslim. It is comments like this that incite racial and religious hatred. I hope you will think twice before posting your racist remarks next time!

    sick sick people in this world!!!!

  • Tiffany commented on August 19, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Killing a dog, because it has rabies, doesn’t seem like a problem, however, using a poison like Strychnine is just sick. If a dog has rabies, euthanize it using the euthanasia shot that doesn’t make the dog suffer. Adding more to the conclusion,people should really focus on spaying and neutering their pets, so that more wouldn’t end up on the streets getting rabies, then having to get killed. It’s ridiculous how many dogs get killed these days. There are vaccines for dogs that can protect them against many diseases such as rabies, but it seems like no one really bothers to care about whether or not to take care of the dogs and find him or her a home, they just kill it on the spot. Do they even know if the canines have rabies or not? Or do they kill them because they are too close minded and just believe in what they think? That question still seems to haunt me.

  • Rebekah Long commented on August 19, 2010 at 9:24 pm

    Abolish Bali as a holiday destination and all goods coming from this so called ‘Paradise’ until this outrageous cruelty stops………….

  • Pixie G commented on August 19, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Country that’s oredi full of corruption and poverty. Yet this thing still happen. Not surprised. Dear PETA supporters,look at how rich the rich are and how poor the pAupers are. But wad help have they done. Now they are killing dogs. I have been to Bali and i assure, I’m boycotting it and definitely will spread more of this news till ur f up government do something. What goes ard comes ard. Whoever that initiated the culling of dogs or any other living things, they’ll get the sAme cos God is watching. Or whadever u Balinese belive in. Watch on pu**ns

  • christine wouters commented on August 24, 2010 at 3:04 am

    To the Indonesian government officials,
    what is happening in Bali to these poor dogs is unbelievable cruelty and their suffering is beyond human compassion, this is what really shocks me, I can feel their pain… I am English and have grown up with dogs, and my dogs have replaced the children that I have never been able to have… and you know it broke my heart when they died, my last one has appeared to me in spirit form in a photograph beside me, oh yes they have got a spirit just like us.

  • Lisa commented on August 27, 2010 at 12:14 am

    How stupid….is there a reason why you kill these poor innocent animals??what did they ever do to u??I hope this world really end in 2012 so everyone can die and you people go to the burning lava in hell and these animals have fun in heaven while they see the one who totrured them get tortured!!

  • Jasmine commented on August 27, 2010 at 8:37 am

  • Oberon commented on August 27, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    Interesting. I believe this is the same inhuman, disgusting, filthy method that the Israelis use. Same scum, it seems, runs both countries. These innocent animals have done nothing wrong. Why should they suffer because of human indecency?

  • jane mumford commented on September 3, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Like every type of animal cruelty, this poisoning of unwanted dogs,whether rabied or not is absolutly barbaric and must stop. I doubt they’d even test them before causing their evil practice of using such a slow agonising poison to kill. Sadly some people perversely get a kick out of causing such misery to animals.These people have a huge lack of compassion,which will probably mean not just to animals, I like to travel, but wont be supporting this country! The goverment there needs to reconcider….BALI- NOT SUCH THE PARADICE ITS SOLD TO US AS!!! PLEASE BOYCOTT!!

  • jane mumford commented on September 3, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    PETA, How can I become an active member, yeah sure I can send donations, but I want/need to be much more useful. can you give me some advice on how to become an active member. I am so passionate about animal welfare, but can blag,keep a low profile when required,use a camera etc, wot-ever it takes to help/speak up for animals.
    Also, I sent off my personal details to donate, PETA say they havent recieved them, but Im a bit concerned about sending them off into cyber-space again, incase same thing happens again….can you recheck?? much respect…xx

  • olivia magda commented on September 29, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    i have a bali stray dog named Bimbi. I love Bali’s dogs and as an indonesian citizen, i’m
    protesting this stupid cruelty!

    Sttooopppp killlliiinggg theeem, they are not guilty!!!!!

  • Zachary commented on October 13, 2010 at 3:10 am

    The Balinese government/local authority responsible for this are worse than the dogs they kill. What can we expect from filthy pig like them with little respect for life. I’d like to see them accidentally shoot one of their own. I would be more than happy to film the human victim writhing in pain and gasping for his last breath.

  • SISKASARI commented on October 14, 2010 at 10:05 am

    if balinese keep doing this,i’ll post those videos to all my friends and other people all over the world,let them know how’s balinese acts.. and hope after that no one will come to bali again…
    i’m indonesian but lucky i’m born chinese..feel shame when i know my country like that!

  • theodore spachidakis commented on October 15, 2010 at 8:23 am

    Stop killing animals.

  • s sureck commented on October 18, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    The only effective and humane way to control rabies outbreaks is through vaccination, and the group Bali Animal Welfare Association has been working tirelessly for mass vaccination of dogs throughout the island.

    STOP THE FUNDING!!

  • catherine commented on January 27, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    STOP CRUELTY !!!! Boycottez l’île ! Il est inadmissible de traiter ainsi leurs animaux !

    HONTEUX !!!! Boycottez l’ile !! Des dégénérés ces habitants !!

  • Harley Harrington commented on April 2, 2011 at 6:06 pm

    Glad to see they have come to their senses. It is my belief that killing dog that can be successfully treated by training or medication is just wrong. You can tell a lot about someone by the way they treat their animals. We should all take care not to send the wrong message. A responsible dog owner needs to respect all life, and treat it with care.

  • Nova commented on June 13, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I’ve seen the same action applied in different province in Indonesia (I’m an Indonesian). For the reason to control rabies, the local government spread poisoned meats massively in a city I lived. A dog we loved was a victim for this stupid action. It’s sad and humiliating.

  • Anthony CH commented on June 13, 2011 at 5:48 pm

    STOP VISITING BALI until this issue resolved. AT LEAST, Dog is also God’s Creations and must be protected their rights to LIVE.

  • wang qiang commented on June 13, 2011 at 9:34 pm
