Russia isn't the only place that's trying to handle the problem of stray dogs by killing as many as they can. This month, the government of Chile outraged animal rights activists when it amended the Ley de Caza (hunting law) to include feral dogs

The most simple solution to a simple problem, created by stupid people.

I imagine sometimes a dog will get lost and never find it's way home again and the family will never know what happened to it. I really hate the world.

They also need to clamp down on irresponsible owners who let their dogs run off leash!

The group Somos Mas Animales Como Ellos acknowledges the extent of the problem but says that there are more humane options, including sterilization.....

That is the first thing that people do to get rid of an animal, they kill them, that is the same thing that is going to happen to them, someone else is going to get rid of them! Eye for an eye!

It's open season on defenseless animals everywhere and it's beyond maddening. I wonder when it came about that people first thought that animals are disposable, like so much trash. I also wonder how these same heartless people would feel if ever an open season was declared on them.

Noted. The group Somos Mas Animales Como Ellos acknowledges the extent of the problem but says that there are more humane options, including sterilization and, when necessary, euthanization.
It is a disgrace to give out licences to kill dogs if they are in a pack, whether they are feral or not. Dogs become feral, when they run away and are not found, let out of a vehicle in an unknown area, running away from inhumane treatment - it is humans that are at fault not the dogs.
Thanks Cher.

Every life has a purpose. All animals are individuals and they have feelings and thoughts and they suffer the pain and the joy that we do. They are entitled and they deserve an opportunity to live.
