The photo below was on Facebook, posted by someone who took it near The Early Bird Restaurant in Fintas. God help the poor strays of Kuwait.
This story ran this week. Pay careful attention to what it says about how poison can be put out - RANDOMLY - with no warnings/postings to the public.
"This was taken this morning, on the corner by the Breakfast Club, in Fintas. I am saddened beyond words. It is right around the trash bins. It has Nothing to do with the restaurant, just added for location ID. We walked around and found no signs of poison, but the cats had no visible injuries.... Please be careful with your dogs and cats"
A dog’s life for stray canines
January 22, 2015
Once a rarity, stray dogs in commercial areas in Kuwait are becoming more common. They are especially prominent in Shuwaikh and Al Rai near the Friday Market as well as industrial, desert or farming areas like Subhan or Wafra.
The dogs, many of which have been abandoned by owners or have escaped from the animal market, are mostly not feral, but may attack humans if they feel threatened. Last year, Kuwait Times interviewed an official of the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR), who stated that they are working on building a shelter for stray dogs in Kuwait.
The official, who asked that his name be withheld, said that this project was in progress and that the dogs would not be killed by poison but rather trapped and then transferred to the shelter. Following up, however, Kuwait Times has learned that no PAAAFR shelter has been built and the authority continues to lay poison baits when stray dog sightings are reported. “When someone calls us and reports seeing a stray dog near their house, our staff go to the place and put a piece of poisoned meat near the house,” said a PAAAFR agent. “The caller has to sign a pledge that he will monitor the poisoned meat to make sure that nobody else will consume it or take the meat,” he said. “When the dog is dead, we then come to remove the carcass. In the past, we used to shoot them, but the Ministry of Interior banned it, so we now poison them instead,” he told Kuwait Times.
Reports that lead to this action, however, are rare. According to the authorities, they receive reports of stray dogs in residential areas only two or three times a month. “It was much more frequent about two years ago,” said the agent. “But we receive many calls reporting stray dogs in areas such as Kabd and Wafra, especially since there are many pens and farms there, and some of these dogs may have escaped and became stray dogs,” he added. The emergency call center also receives calls reporting abandoned wolves and monkeys. “In such cases, we cooperate with the zoo, which sends its staff who tranquilize these animals and then take them to the zoo. PAAAFR also has a temporary quarantine for dogs - not stray dogs but pets.
When a dog attacks its owner, for instance, it’s kept in this quarantine until the owner is treated and collects his dog. If he doesn’t retrieve the animal, it is humanely destroyed,” concluded the employee. People can call the PAAAFR emergency number 1800018 to report stray dogs in their area.
HOW are they poisoning dogs? Humanely? HELL NO!!!! Cyanide!
Symptoms of cyanide poisoning: dilated pupils, hyperventilation (rapid breathing or panting), shock, vomiting, cardiac arrhythmia, and skin irritations.
Want to see how bad their deaths are? There is a shocking video HERE taken in Kuwait (VERY graphic)
There is a special place in HELL for all these people killing animals in this cruel manner. God won't forgive you and no amount of praying or fasting is ever going to save you on judgement day.
