Cool BreezeMany of those that are killed are fed to tigers and lions at the Helsinki zoo, Korkeasaari.
It's a great idea.

We have stray dogs and cats in our neighbourhood. But it's dirty all around here, so they just fit the surroundings and not even noticable!!!
Where do you live? Aren't some people scared of these stray animals. I think In my town there would be a lot of complains if there were some animals running arround. Stray dogs can be dangerous if they didn't got anything to eat the last time.. so you consider it as a problem in your city or do you come to terms with it ? Emotion: smile

It's a problem. But not as big as others when they all exist. When a starving stray dog comes up, I may become violent, so I believe he'd fear me. I've got accustomed to them, only feel it's a serious problem when the journalists show a series of dogs at one time.Emotion: smile
I'm from Bulgaria this is true, now dogs eta small children and old people. The government no care of this is a full of idiots and bulgarian is a stuped and only way to do anything personally to hurt. If i have a gun and some dogs attack me i killed or i have a knife. It's like a jungle with f k monkeys. Sometimes a dog to chase me until the wheel.
I'm sry for my bad english and i hope someday to go in other country with law which people respect.

Emotion: sad
I really see your point bloodevil !

The law and the government should protect the people.

You wouldn't believe how much there stary dogs are in Thailand! It's considered "normal" for us to see unwanted dogs at anywhere. The main cause of this problem is the lacking of the citizen's responsibility. Many families want to pet a dog when it's still young and looks adorable but when it grows up and has no lovely face anymore, people think it's nothing but an annoying creature in your house. This is a shame, I admitted, still numbers of stray pets keep increasing gradually.

But there are animal shelters? Or does the government something to decrease the numbers of stray pets? Are people beeing attacked by dogs? If your dog isn't "cute" anymore... is that a reason to let it go? Can't people be accused because of that point.
I wouldn't have thought that stray animals could be such a problem.
I live in Houston Texas. I do not think we have very many stray dogs here that roam the streets. Most of them are in shelters. There are a ton of animal organizations that foster dogs in their own homes as well. A lot of them are breeding specific too. I think the reason for this is animal control and the laws the city has passed. However there are a ton of animals in these shelters. Some of them are kill shelters too. It is sad because if a dog has a curable disease, it is more likely to be put down to make room for a healthy dog. I want to say that there are a lot of animal lovers here and when someone finds a stray dog, they either put up a found sign, keep the dog, or just take it to a shelter. Spaying and neutering has been drilled into everyone’s head from a young age. Most people know to either spay or neuter their pet, whether they do it or not is up to them. I am thinking that due to all of the animals in the shelters, not as many people spay or neuter as they should. There are also programs at shelters to help people who do not have the finances to do so. I had my cat spayed for around $25. Stray cats are another story. We have two stray cats at our condo that my neighbor decided to adopt. It seems like no matter where I go, I see stray cats. I know they are more independent and hard to handle when they are feral. A few animal shelters actually catch them, spay or neuter them, and then release them again. It is still equally as important if not more to spay and neuter them because they breed so fast and because of all of the highways with heavy traffic. Plus I have noticed that indoor cats have a longer life span than outdoor only cats due to the fact that they don't have as many predators and are less likely to be hit by a car or eat something that has been poisoned. My aunt had an indoor/outdoor cat that lived to be 15 years old. She also lives near the country. Outdoor city cats are more at risk than outdoor country cats I would like to say. However in the country, you have to deal with predators like hawks and coyotes. Indoor cats can also face issues if they eat plastic or something poisonous. I have a 10 year old indoor only cat that has never had any health problems as of yet. Anyways, I'm not a scientist for my city lol. These comments are based solely on my personal experience. Someone else that lives in a different part of my city may have a different view on things as well as a complete different set of experiences. These are just my observations and views on the whole thing. I have never personally seen a stray dog wandering the streets. I have seen smooshed dogs in the streets as L well as a neighborhood dog here and there wandering around its neighborhood (collar and tags).

In my country there is no law against letting animals go. So noone can be punished for that, unfortunately.
