Nov. 8, 2006 â€” First it was one child. Now authorities say Beijing families will be allowed only one dog.
The restriction is part of efforts to stamp out rabies, state media said Wednesday. It follows a campaign in August in which thousands of dogs were killed in order to fight the disease.
China’s capital will institute a “one dog” policy for each household in nine areas, the official Xinhua News Agency said.
