Sochi plans mass killing of stray dogs ahead of Winter Olympics
A local pest control company has been ordered to exterminate the animals after a stray dog interrupted last week's dress rehearsal for the Olympic opening ceremony. Authorities refused to specify whether the dogs will be shot or poisoned, or how their carcasses will be disposed of.
There's been plenty of time before this event to have implemented other means to reduce the population of homeless dogs.
To do this in the 11th hour, days before opening ceremonies?
Because of image?
What a horrible country Russia is.
"We should understand that it is done not only before the Olympics but constantly," she told the AP in an interview in downtown Sochi, where she was trying to find homes for seven puppies she recently rescued near the Olympic Park. "Two killers from that company work for the city to kill 300 dogs a month."
Sorokin's company operates in the Krasnodar region, which includes Sochi and the neighboring area. He refused to say how many dogs they kill a year, calling it a "commercial secret."
So Russia is a horrible country for getting rid of a load of diseased dogs what are renowned for attacking humans?...I would be more worried about the looming terrorist threat from the Dagestan and chechen rebels. You know those terrorists what kill innocent people
