The Inhumane Slaughter That’s Happening at the Olympics Is Heartbreaking
Most people are well aware of Russia’s deplorable LGBT policies, the fairly high risk of some kind of terrorist attack being carried out and the disgusting accommodations the athletes and other visitors have had to endure. Things like no hot water, bins for used toilet paper, no shower curtains, filthy rooms, dangerous water - the list goes on and on.
But beyond all of that, there’s an even worse event going on in Sochi that very few in the “mainstream media” are reporting on.
It’s the needless slaughter of thousands of stray dogs.
Apparently Sochi has an above average amount of stray dogs roaming the town, and officials in charge of the event deemed it necessary to “rid” themselves of this “pest problem.”
See, they’re treating these dogs as “pests” (like we treat roaches, ants or other insects) rather than dogs.
It’s an issue Keith Olbermann has reported about in great detail the past few days. Which is really the only reason why I’ve heard in such great detail about the horrific treatment of these animals.
Olbermann talked about how dogs are being shot with poison darts, or fed poisoned meat, in order to rid the town of this “problem.” Not only that, a pest company was contracted to carry out the slaughter of these innocent animals with the owner of that company calling the dogs “biological garbage.”
The darts being used apparently are some kind of muscle relaxers which causes the dogs to suffocate. A witness said they watched a dog who had been hit with one of these darts die. A death which took 90 minutes.
He also pointed out how many of the strays don’t have a home because their family’s homes were torn down to make way for the Olympics. In other words, they lost their homes because of the Olympics, now they’re being killed because of them.
