  • Description

    ABOUT 1,500 PEDIGREE DOGS OF ALL SHAPES AND SIZES, BRED FROM BRITISH-BORN STOCK, WERE PARADED IN TOKYO YESTERDAY IN PROTEST AT ALLEGATIONS IN BRITAIN THAT THE JAPANESE ARE CRUEL TO DOGS. THE DOGS AND THEIR OWNERS ARRIVED IN BUSES AT A CITY PARK FOR A RALLY AND THEN PREPARED IN THE STREETS BEFORE SETTING OFF, AGAIN BY BUS, FOR THE BRITISH EMBASSY AND MORE DEMONSTRATIONS.

    THE DEMONSTRATION WAS ORGANISED BY THE JAPAN PET DOG CLUB, AND THE MARCHERS CARRIED PLACARDS ATTACKING A BRITISH NEWSPAPER WHICH RECENTLY CARRIED PROMINENT REPORTS ON CONDITIONS FOR DOGS IN JAPAN.

    A TOKYO NEWSPAPER HAS ATTACKED THE LONDON REPORTS AND HAS CHALLENGED THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT TO SEND AN INSPECTION TEAM TO SEE JUST HOW DOGS EXPORTED FROM BRITAIN ARE BEING TREATED IN JAPAN.
