Maybe they are just stocking up for a visit by Obama and want to make him feel at home.

I don’t follow the Olympics much, but that is the best way to handle feral dog populations - and I’m a dog owner.

Instead of shooting stray dogs, they should be dealing with mad dogs (Muslims).

Here's a video from a few years ago about the thousands of smart, stray dogs in Moscow.

Our enforcers only shoot pet dogs, not the feral ones. The cop playbook enjoys the terror and fear when "Sallies" get their pooch blown away with impunity.

Sallies is cop speak for citizens.

Sad, but true. I’ve lived and worked in countries where the local pariah dog population was so bad it endangered flight operations. On one of my jungle hoppers, the landing gear struck a dog on the dirt airstrip just as we lifted off. Nearly brought us down. And, its a real eye opener when there’s a rabies outbreak.

I don’t recall stray dogs, but went back late after-hours to the youth hostel (climbing up a drain and into a window!) in Copenhagen years ago walking past all sorts of drunks and homeless people on cardboard, etc.

Four hours later I was packed and walking back out to catch an early train before sunrise. The streets and squares were cleared of everyone and everything, with the pavement damp from the street sweeper. It was REALLY weird - like a movie (”Soylent Green”)

They’re worried about terrorists...BUT, they’re allowing civilians to roam around firing guns under the guise of animal control?

What could possibly go wrong...

Im certain the vetting process will be almost as startlingly stringent as that which we put The Great Leader through,...

What could go wrong...probably includes a division of jihadis dog control “officers”

In India the dogs help clean up human corpses so don’t kill them all.

given mooselims strong “dislike” for the feelthy infidel doggy....I’d think the dog extermination business might draw a lot of them as it is. The added bonus of being able to shoot not only canine infidels but humans as well ....may have drawn a gaggle of them into the business long in advance of the games.

Off topic a bit, but why is an official news source like a FOX station featuring a “you might also like” that includes a foul word acronym?

We are so low class now.

Indeed. I seldom ever look at the reccomendation links..and thus hadnt noticed the “you might also like stuff” from whence the acronym came.

A downward moral slide of the breadth and depth of the one we are currently experiencing touches almost everything in its path.

were there somewhere better I could go I would have packed it in after the Grammys.

China conducted an utter pogrom when they had the Olympics and they have a LOT more stray dogs.

I really hate being pinged to dog extermination threads.

If I had my druthers I would not have pigeon holed this as a Dog Thread per se.

If I had read the other articles on the matter I’d have noted that cats in addition to dogs are being “eliminated” for the olympics.

how much distress could a cat.. getting into a venue cause ?? they dont even bark!
