Ladies and Gentlemen:
So much for Pluto and Goofy. It appears Disney’s compassion for dogs occurs solely on screen.
In real life, homeless dogs at Hong Kong Disneyland’s construction site are captured and killed.
There is no official death count. According to an Associated Press report, Albert Hui of Hong
Kong’s agriculture department claims the government has rounded up 45 dogs since May. The
South China Morning Post (7/25/05) disclosed the removal and euthanasia of about 40 dogs in
response to Walt Disney Company’s request to eliminate strays who pose a “safety threat.”
Safety threat? Workers had cared for these non-aggressive dogs and even viewed them as
“unofficial guard dogs” while the theme park was under construction. Rather than take steps to
find suitable homes or rescue/adoption groups (such as Hong Kong Dog Rescue), Disney chose
to destroy affable, healthy dogs.
This is bad press for the entire Magic Kingdom. If the Walt Disney Company and Hong Kong
Disneyland hope to market themselves as family-oriented, they ought to abide by the civilized
world’s ethics. Most modern societies advocate rescue, adoption, spay/neuter, vaccination,
treatment, and microchip identification for stray animals. These dogs deserved a chance. Disney
robbed them of the opportunity to become someone’s loving companion.
This indiscretion undermines the integrity of Disney’s empire, including its studio entertainment,
parks and resorts, consumer products, and media networks. As long as HK Disneyland
authorizes killing homeless animals, I will encourage others to join me in a boycott of Disney
parks in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris and the U.S. as well as Disney films, broadcast stations,
internet properties, and other merchandising.
Perhaps Hong Kong officials sanction dog slaughter. Still, this is a rotten way to “celebrate” the
opening of your new park. Please take responsibility for these innocent animals.
Thank you,
