Coming soon to a backyard near you?

Big White Guy reports that Hong Kong is going to eliminate the ownership of private poultry (more or less) as a way of stopping avian influenza.

The Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation department will send out "“patrol teams",— a euphemism for "death squads", to all 750 villages in Hong Kong.

Now, compare this to the NAIS (National Animal Identification System), which some say will lead to the eventual mandatory registration of every domesticated animal in the US--including, perhaps, our pets.

The water is getting warmer, Froggy me boy.
