58,000 Dogs Killed in Iraq

13 Jul

They don’t even have a shelter system, let alone a spay and neuter program, not now or ever. The least we could have done as part of reconstructing their country was to set up some sort of an animal welfare system. Shooting 58,000 dogs in three months is a little extreme.

Baghdad officials said Saturday that 58,000 stray dogs have been killed in and around the Iraqi capital over the past three months as part of a campaign to curb an increasing number of strays blamed for attacks on residents.

      I thought I was seeing things, but they don’t even have animal shelters or any sort of animal welfare system.
