murder of dogs in jordan

just been going through my e mails and saw the pictures and story that is happening in jordan. the muslim leader in that country has declared war on all dogs and has instructed his sheep sorry followers to wipe em all out. people have been going out on the streets gunning down all dogs they see. might be wrong but i have not seen anything on the news about this.

We kill stray dogs in the UK, about 20,000 a year. Thats probably more than Jordan are doing so maybe people need to look closer to home before they start complaining what other countries are doing. Link to newspaper story about it https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/ne...ling-too-much/

Neil, I think this is a little different.
When I was growing up it was a common sight to see stray dogs out on the streets.
Now it is very uncommon to see dogs out without an owner somewhere close by.
The healthy dogs destroyed by animal charities is a travesty.
There are no bad dogs...only bad (and irresponsible ) owners.
My brother(before he died) was heavily involved with the rescue and rehoming of huskies, sled dogs and akitas. These dogs have very specific needs. They are easily bored and if not exercised more than four times each day, they can become destructive...chewing up furniture, doors, skirting boards.
These dogs are working dogs, not really the pets that some people think they are.

He said that many of the people who had taken on these types of dogs knew absolutely zero about their needs...other than to feed and water them.
He drove many hundreds of miles each week to pick up these unwanted animals...and many more miles seeking out the right kind of homes for them. The homes were very carefully vetted before a dog was rehomed.
He was involved in educating people as to the needs of these animals.

These dogs in Jordan are strays...Street dogs and they are not being killed humanely, they are being shot indiscriminately.
No animal deserves to die in such a manner.

Re: murder of dogs in jordan

can see this happening in B/B if people don't pick up after their dogs.

The reason you don't see strays is because they are picked up and taken away. If they can't be rehomed within 7 days many are put to sleep. 20,000 each year are put to sleep because homes can't be found for them. The only difference would appear to be the way they are killed. Shot or injection it is still killing them.

Yes, but the bodies aren't left on the street as some of those in Amman are.
And some of those that have been shot are reported to be pets rather than Street dogs.
I know that stray dogs are rounded up, but I just do not see as many dogs running free...and it is not because I am not out and about a lot.
I would imagine that the legal requirement to have all dogs microchipped might alleviate this situation quite a bit.

It is sad because it is not the fault of the animals, it is the fault of irresponsible humans.

I don't think microchipping will do much. Many of these destroyed dogs are given to dogs home because they are not wanted. 7 days later many of them are dead. We should be sorting our own problems out before we go interfering with other countries businesses telling them they are doing things wrong.

I think you are right about micro chipping...though it is illegal to have unchipped dogs, there isn't anyone policing the law...so it is very likely to be flouted.
to my mind there is no point in passing legislation which hasn't a hope in hell of being policed.
I guess we are sorting out the stray dog problem in a more humane way...but it still does not get away from the fact that it is NOT the fault of the animal, but the fault of irresponsible humans.
The problem of unwanted animals is always going to be with us...like the poor.

We can't microchip and put down the poor, not until we get rid of the EU human rights act

|I don't think it would be the poor who would be put down...I think it would be those who are of pension age and considered to be adding nothing to the economy...and keeping houses that younger people might want to live in....us old bu88ers are so selfish and inconsiderate!

Re: murder of dogs in jordan

At least the dogs in the UK are given a chance at being rehomed, unlike over yonder where they have none.
