I hope they aren't just saying this to get animal rights activists off their backs and proceed quietly with killing. I doubt it. This is promising, great news!

With their hatred of strays I doubt this is true. Let's hope they are not telling us what we want to hear. Keep you fingers crossed for the strays.

Thank you Desanka for letting us know. Maybe some who go to the Olympics will adopt a pet before they go home.
