Crews Killing Thousands of Dogs for Sochi Olympic Games

Examiner – Cross-Posted at Just One More Pet (JOMP): According to Friday’s CTV News, in anticipation of the upcoming Olympic games in Sochi, Russia, countless homeless dogs currently roaming the streets are being culled.

Local officials have cited “safety” for visiting guests as the reason for the mass killing; according to the publication, a company has been hired to do the dirty work.

Nightly, roaming dogs are captured in baited traps…then killed with poison.

Rescuers in the area are doing their best to get to the stray dogs first…they try to capture the dogs, get them sterilized and vaccinated, and ultimately adopted into homes.

Unfortunately, the number of un-sterilized, stray dogs makes the rescuers’ job difficult – new litters are constantly being born and the killing crews continue on with their dark, unsavory work.

According to USA Today, last April, the government had stated that they were backing off of their plans to kill an estimated 2,000 dogs, but it appears that the dirty work of killing has simply been transferred to a non-government agency.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
