Scroungy and street smart, Moscow's 26,000 stray dogs roam the Russian capital, bedding down in subway stations and even learning to ride the trains. But some are aggressive, traveling in packs and attacking people.

Surely the Russians have an answer for this problem?

Very sad that the Moscow government "spent" $45 million on dog shelters, sterilization, and other programs to deal with the city's huge stray population and the money went into the pockets of who knows. With that amount of money they could do miracles for these dogs instead of sending them to horrible facilities where they will live in misery, this is not very different from Kyrgystan planning to shoot 10,000 dogs. How can people do such things to poor stray dogs who are victims of human neglect and mistreatment? Really sad and disgusting

This is the kind of thing that just shouldn't happen. In recent years ive read articles about the incredibly rich Russians that are springing up, so where are the compassionate people then, and what happened to their shelters that so much money was allocated to....Not fair, not fair at all. People think that they are the only ones who suffer but they are not, animals suffer just as much if not more.

Once again, animals get the raw deal. How resilient are these dogs??!!! They have adapted to riding trains - I am in awe of their intelligence! No one should kill these dogs because they actually sound more intelligent than some humans!!!
Pray for the dogs!

I've seen videos of this sort of 'deportation' and all it entails, its literally dumping the dogs far into the countryside and just leaving them there with no means of surviving, even the injured, sick, puppies and old dogs. Its not so they can be looked after, it is just so the problem that the people have created themselves in the first instance is solved in a most unhumane, barbaric way by removing the dogs from the city. Shame on the authorities, its time they started introducing spay/neuter programmes and educating the people on animal welfare not just dumping the animals out of sight.

THERE'S NO DEMOCRACY IN RUSSIA....THE GOVERNMENT IS TOO CORRUPT. EVIDENTLY, THERE ARE NO BRAIN CELLS EITHER. THIS "LET'S DEPORT THEM TO SIBERIA" OR WHEREVER MENTALITY IS SO THIRD WORLD. IT WOULD BE LAUGHABLE WERE NOT SO TRAGIC AND HORRIFYING. FOR EVERY SHIPMENT OF DOGS TO THIS "CAMP," THERE WILL BE THOUSANDS MORE IN THE STREETS TAKING THEIR PLACE. ANYONE IN RUSSIA EVER HEARD OF SPAYING AND NEUTERING?

I don't see anything positive going for the dogs. But, if there is a good solution in Russia, maybe they can pass it on to the stupid romanians!
