Saving Bali Dogs

This video is a year old, when Bali was in the grip of a Rabies scare. They were poisoning strays until local and international NGOs stepped in. Since Bali is a prime tourist attraction, and very much in the international spotlight, it was easier to get the authorities to cooperate with the vaccination program. There are lessons to be learnt from this: international censure can be a major deterrent to perpetuating cruelty.
