Facebook posts falsely claim that the World Economic Forum (WEF) has called for "millions of cats and dogs worldwide to be slaughtered" to fight climate change. The false claim appears to originate from a website that has previously spread misinformation. AFP found no trace of such an initiative and a WEF representative said the allegation was baseless.
