Hong Kong’s “zero COVID” policy has caused schools and playgrounds to close as children learn how to be obedient to authority. The latest COVID measure is another way to psychologically traumatize children for years to come. After a 23-year-old pet store worker became infected with COVID, authorities tested both employees and pets for the virus. Unfortunately, some hamsters tested positive, and now the government plans to kill all hamsters purchased between December 22, 2021 and January 7, 2022.
The government will begin by slaughtering over 2,000 hamsters at pet stores across Hong Kong. The Controller of the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) Edwin Tsui said that animal-to-human transmission is rare but possible and that it was more likely that the worker contracted the virus from another human. The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department (AFCD) is now urging people to surrender their pets for euthanasia.
Luckily, the people of Hong Kong know how to gather and protest. Countless online groups are forming to protect pet hamsters from their ultimate fate. Hundreds of people are offering to foster hamsters, while others are spreading information about the current laws. The AFCD does not have the power to legally seize a pet as it is considered personal property. Anyone who surrenders their pet to AFCD will be forced to sign a waiver stating that they are willingly euthanizing their pet.
Lawmaker Michael Tien is currently proposing rounding up pet hamsters and massacring them. Is this a practice run for when they move on to unvaccinated people? There is no medical reason to implement such cruel laws.
