Not surprised. I wouldn't expect anything better of a regime like that
The IOC should be ashamed of themselves awarding the games to Russia.
When athletes are afraid to go, you know you got a problem.
Yes, pretty ... awkward decision
Wow. That's all I'm going to say.
I'm surprised they don't use them for target practice.
Couldn't have said it better.
Well you must hate living in Canada then.
The northern reserves around here regularly have culls for all the strays, they call them "Dog Days". These dogs form packs and can get aggressive, quite frankly I would rather not have kids getting killed and people attacked than have a bunch of stray dogs running around. It does happen. In this case the issue is with the local population bringing in dogs only to not care for them and let them run wild, but that is a whole other issue.
I think the shame here is that they poison them and leave the bodies to rot on the streets, that is really inappropriate.
Yeah, Culls really aren't that unheard of. There's reasons to be disappointed with the IOC/Russia, but a dog cull isn't one of them, IMO.
It happens here in the rural U.S. also, but the prey for the packs are usually calves. There is no official "cull" but when the problem starts to get out of hand, the local ranchers get together to solve the problem with rifles and shotguns.
Feral dog packs are way more dangerous than wolf packs. The problem isn't do much the cull, it's that apparently there is a big enough feral dog problem in a large city to need one. I say that as a dedicated dog lover too.
I would like to know how they are poisoning the dogs. That information should have been in the story.
I'm not saying I'm in favor of it, but have you ever been to Russia? There's hundreds of thousands of stray dogs in the streets. They roam around in packs. Imagine packs of wild dogs wandering around New York
