Left To Die On An Island And You'll Never Guess What It Is

Imagine being a castaway. On a deserted island. No food. This tropical island is never like what you see in glossy travel brochures. It is muddy, it is far from civilisation, it is full of deadly snakes, it is not livable. You get the idea.
Like some horror movie island. Where you can check in and never check out. Ever.
If you are deported here, you will die. There’s no food, nothing. There’s danger aplenty. Snakes, mud, flies.
And you cannot swim. You will drown anyway due to tiredness as it’s really far away from any other island.
And sadly, you will die.
I read something sad today and while I am normally positive and upbeat, I want to help spread this news. I tweeted about it but it needs your support.
Bloggers always rally around to help be it a missing child, someone needing blood, raising funds for a good cause. And that’s why I feel it’s time as a blogger to not only write about fun things, good things, happy things but also to write about this. It’s horrible to think that Malaysians can be so stupid but I’m a Buddhist. I believe what goes around comes around. Life’s a big karma dish.
Anyway – to cut it short – dogs are being left to die on an island near Pulau Ketam.
Stray dogs.
help save the exiled dogs of Pulau Ketam
I heard about it from Donald first this morning at his blog. Then I followed the links and went to TV Smith’s blog where he had a very touching photo essay of the rescue mission. And this is where you can get updates about the mission.
I think it’s outrageous that dogs are exiled to an island. I’ve always felt that the cruelest beings on earth have always been humans. While we have the power to do good things, we’ve also the power to do extremely horrifying things. And I consider this one of them.
So what can you do? (I hope you are a blogger and you can spread this message far and wide. If you are a flogger aka food blogger, why not blog about dogs for a change?)
1. Help by embedding the puppy poster on your blog. Get it here.
2. Any other assistance is much appreciated. Again, the email and phone numbers are listed here.
I’m just disappointed that human beings are so bloody cruel and thoughtless! And Pulau Ketam now probably will not only be famous for seafood, it will be notorious for killing dogs!
Oh yes, they’re also overcharging for the boat trips to rescue the dogs. What irony! They were the ones who put the dogs there! Perhaps we should all boycott the Pulau Ketam seafood restaurants – NOW that’s something floggers can write about!
