Catch the most dogs and win rm15k (USD4.5k)

This is no joke. Majlis Perbandaran Selayang (Selayang Municipal Council) is organising a dog capturing competition. All you need to do is catch as many dogs as possible. The dogs will still need to be breathing (for audit purpose) and each dog captured must also be photographed as proof of capture.
Tangkapan hendaklah diserahkan hidup-hidup kepada urus setia pertandingan untuk pengiraan/audit. Gambar setiap ekor tangkapan juga hendaklah dikemukakan sebagai bukti tangkapan.
Assessment will be done twice a year (every 6 months). To qualify for the three prizes, you will need to capture a minimum of 150 dogs every 6 months. The prize structure? 1st prize gets you rm15k, 2nd prize rm13k and 3rd prize winner gets rm11k. That's a whooping rm39k in taxpayer's money! An incentive payout of rm20 per dog will also be given out every month. Only stray dogs will be counted.

The thing is...
What the f*ck is wrong with our councillors?!?

Don't they have better things to do with the money? Why target only dogs? I'm sure we all have problems with stray cats and even rats! And what if someone captures a licensed dog, what guarantee is there that the person will not remove the license and 'submit' the licensed dog as stray?

From Remembering Sheena's 4th September post:
I appeal to the Malaysian public to please bombard the newsdesk of the Media with emails and phone calls expressing disgust at this outrage. Below are the email addresses you can write to. Please don't forget to include your full name, email and mailing address and telephone numbers:

editor@thestar.com.my
metro@thestar.com.my
letters@nstp.com.my
news@nstp.com.my
mmnews@nstp.com.my
newsdesk@thesundaily.com
editor@malaysiakini.com
editorial@sinchew.com.my
bhnews@bharian.com.my
pengarang@utusan.com
editor@nanyang.com.my
am@hmetro.com.my
gmkl@guangming.com.my
bgns@bernama.com
tcpb@po.jaring.my
I hope everyone can help pass the word around. No, this is not about expanding the competition to include stray cats and rats. It is about:
- expressing disgust for such brutal and stone-age 'sport'
- expressing disgust for abusing taxpayers' money
- respecting and loving all living beings including stray dogs

Shouldn't they be focusing on more important matters such as improving the security of housing areas etc etc? and who on earth would be so free to catch a min num of 150 in 6 months?!
