snipshot_b6be9pmx8.jpgJackie Chan–a man that has broken near every bone in his body–is teaming up with PETA to lobby Chinese authorities to stop large-scale dog culls to combat rabies. From the release,

“The actor has called on the Chinese government to use vaccines to tackle the deadly disease before outbreaks occur, rather than just reacting to emergencies. Chan has designed a unique greeting card which is currently being auctioned on eBay, with proceeds going to PETA Asia Pacific’s humane rabies control campaign. The card carries the inscription, “Of course it is our duty as human beings to love and respect each other. But that obligation extends to our animal friends as well. They are just as deserving of our care and kindness.”
You can check out that card auction here. More than 50,000 dogs were slaughtered last month in just once district of the Yunnan province–some were even ripped away from their owner’s hands. All this because three people died from rabies.

Where is Chris Tucker in all of this? More info after the jump!
