Earlier this month, a Canadian tourist had captured pictures of a reported dog massacre in Egypt and started a global campaign to stop what she called the “maddening killing of street animals in Egypt”. Many animal rights organizations in Egypt decided to take action and send letters to the president, the minister of internal affairs, the minister of health and the police force responsible for the killing.
The Secretary General for the Society for the Protection of Animal Rights (SPARE) in Egypt said that this slaughter of animals in Egypt is not an isolated incident and more animals continue to be poisoned or shot to death. He also stated that: “the government says that vaccinations and neutering have a high cost however, that is not true as they spend a lot of hard currency to import the poison used in the killing in addition to the cost of bullets. We are in the 21st century and you (the government) still follow medieval methods in dealing with street animals.”
