Taiwan Premier of Executive Yuan Jiang Yi-Huah

Taiwan has been bursting the rabies among the Formosan ferret-badgers since months. A week ago there were not any dogs or cats has infected or died of it. Taiwan authority department Council of Agriculture (COA) announced few days ago there is a puppy died in rabies, but they do not have any idea to prevent the spread of ferret-badger rabies. They only want to use the beagles and mice in vivo experiments to make the record of their own in this September, to see how long and strong the ferret-badger rabies virus will pass to beagles and mice.

數月前,臺灣爆發了鼬獾狂犬病,一周前無任何貓狗受到感染或死於此病,台灣當局農委會數天前宣布有幼犬因感染而死於狂犬病!然而,農委會卻對防止鼬獾狂犬病的擴散卻束手無策,他們只想於今年九月進行米格魯與小白鼠狂犬病毒活體實驗,目的在於做他們想要的實驗紀錄,以便了解將鼬獾狂犬病毒注入米格魯與小白鼠,多強的病毒能讓牠們多久受到感染?

In fact, China already experimented this and got the research data: They injected the ferret badger rabies virus strains more than 10 to the power of 6 into the dogs, the dogs would fall ill. COA is really no need to do the experiment to confirm the experiment has been confirmed!

事實上,中國已經做個這個實驗並得到研究數據:他們必須將10的6次方以上的鼬獾狂犬病毒株打入犬隻體內,才會使犬隻發病。農委會實在沒必要再做這實驗去證實已被證實的實驗!

Many experts from international associations and organizations (like PETA, PCRM,CDC...etc.), local experts and vets are all bitterly oppose this experiment!

許多國際組織的專家(像是PETA、PCRM、CDC...等)與國內專家學者和獸醫師們都一致反對這項實驗!

However, COA let the local governments loose on catching the stray dogs (most of them are healthy puppies) to the public shelters and euthanize them.

然而,農委會放任地方政府濫捕流浪犬(多數的皆為健康的幼犬)至公立收容所,在很短的時間內將之安樂死!

Experiment and killing the dogs can not reduce the rabies. It is not correct rabies prevention work! Even more it could endanger the health defense of human society!

實驗與撲殺犬隻不能讓狂犬病消失,這並非正確的狂犬病防疫工作!尤有甚者,可能還會危及人類社會的健康防線!

As we know the rabies vaccine is effective against all the rabies viruses. Taiwan government should lead to inject the vaccine with all the home dogs and stray dogs instead of the cruel and unnecessary experiment!

我們都知道狂犬病疫苗對所有類型的狂犬病毒皆有效,台灣政府應該要做的是將所有家犬與浪犬全數施打狂犬病疫苗,而非去做這殘忍與不必要的實驗!

The great irony is that the World Rabies Day on 28th September is coming soon. Even Global Alliance For Rabies Control, they never promote the in vivo beagle or mice rabies experiments as an important prevention work. But COA thinks this experiment must be given precedence over the rabies vaccine injections! None of countries use any animal in vivo rabies virus experiment like Taiwan!

最諷刺的是,九月二十八日世界狂犬病日即將來臨,全球狂犬病控制聯盟他們從未推廣米格魯或小白鼠狂犬病活體實驗當作最重要的防疫工作!然而,農委會卻堅持實驗優先於狂犬病疫苗注射!全世界至今沒有一個國家像台灣這樣硬要用動物來作狂犬病毒活體實驗!

Taiwan should stop going against the normality and justice of world rabies prevention works and release all the beagles and mice from the cruel experiment!

台灣應該停止違反世界狂犬病防疫工作的正常性與正當性!並且釋放所有米格魯與小白鼠,停止利用牠們做活體實驗!
