|Arab Times, Kuwait, 8/29/19|
A video clip of two men with what appears to be a dead mother dog and a BAG FULL of live puppies has circulated over social media in Kuwait. According to today's article in the Arab Times (re-featured from Al-Anba daily newspaper in Kuwait), the Kuwaiti Government's Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAFR) hired expats to kill strays.
PAAFR is responsible for strays in the country.
Stray dogs have been poisoned for months in Kuwait and rumors have cirulated as to who is to blame.
According to one Kuwaiti animal rescue group, since this article was posted today, PAAFR has denied any responsibility for hiring contract mercenaries to inhumanely kill the stray dogs in the country.
I hate seeing this in the news and in social media. I pray that the Government of Kuwait will care for it's international reputation and start a humane stray control program as in other contries. Or at the very least, look into who is responsible for these unmerciful acts and stop them.
Poison and torture of strays should not be condoned in any civilized nation.
