PeoPo Your Shoot. Zero Abandonment, Zero Euthanasia

文字-A A +A

To mark World Animal Day on October 4, PeoPo Citizen Journalism Platform teamed up with Taiwan Animal Equality Association (TAEA) and New Taipei City Government Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office to raise the “2015 World Animal Day – Support Zero Euthanasia” in New Taipei City’s Park 4. This latest Your Shoot event attracted the participation of more than 80 citizen journalists and friends, in what turned out to be a lively and warmhearted day. 

In the past, Taiwan's treatment of stray animals was to house them for 12 days after capture, during which time they could be claimed or adopted by members of the public; however, when the 12 days elapsed, the stray animals would be euthanized.

Fortunately, with the goal of achieving zero abandonment, zero euthanasia, New Taipei City Government Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office proposed a novel policy for dealing with stray animals. Implemented on March 1 this year, to date, the new “Zero Euthanasia” policy, which is supplemented by eight supporting measures, has not given rise to an increase in abandoned animals – something that the office originally feared – and the adoption rate has significantly improved.

Following the Your Shoot event, a total of 20 citizen journalists published related reports, which in addition to recording all the activities throughout the day, also explored the issue of stray animals from a wide range of perspectives. Hopefully, through the power of video reports, more people will begin showing concern for the stray animal issue.

PeoPo踹拍 世界動物日零棄養零安樂
 

10月4日是世界動物日,PeoPo公民新聞平台與台灣動物平權促進會以及新北市政府動保處,在新北市四號公園舉辦「2015世界動物日-支持新北零安樂」的踹拍活動,共有80多位公民記者與公民朋友們參加,場面非常熱鬧溫馨。

過去台灣流浪動物的處理方式,是在捕捉收容12天後,若無人來認領或認養,流浪動物可能就會遭到安樂死的命運。新北市的動保處提出零棄養、零安樂死的目標,並從今年3月1日起實施「零安樂死」政策,輔以八大配套措施,執行至今,並未發生原本所擔心的棄養潮,且認養率也有效提高。

踹拍活動後,共有20多位公民記者發表相關公民報導,除了記錄當天的活動之外,更從多元面向探討流浪動物問題,希望透過影像報導的力量,讓更多人共同關心流浪動物議題。
