DUE TO NEW RULES, CHILE HUNTS STRAY DOGS


20/3/14

Tuesday 4th March 2014, Chile introduced new rules within the named “Lay De Caza”, that is the law on hunt, extending the list of “damaging” animals, including stray dogs. New law allows people to hunt or capture of stray dogs in areas at least 400 meters away from any town or city. This will result in a real massacre for both stray and owned dogs. It seems that the decision come from pressure by groups of farmers, complaining that dogs attack their livestock and damage their farms.

In addition to the government that already captures and relocates dogs in rural areas, now everybody could legally take part in the massacre.

In the past weeks, thousands of animal activists and lovers protested against the new rules in many cities as Santiago, Osorno, Talca, Conceptiòn, Valparaiso e Copiapò.

The decision of Chilean government is barbaric, inhumane and a total failure. The solution is neutering/spaying stray and owned dogs and punishment for who abandon or mistreat animals too.

Lay the Caza already slaughter innocents, like “Franki” the dog, killed by a man in the rural area of Quillota, all recorded by a security system camera. The man run away and the suffering animal, transported in a vet clinic, is dying after hours of agony.
