If Sochi’s dogs are biological trash, then I’m not watching the Olympics

Officials in Sochi have hired a private extermination company, Basya Service, to cull stray dogs from the streets in preparation for the Winter Olympics.

For months, animal welfare groups have been protesting against the poisoning of the dogs in the city, which has a large stray dog population.   There were promises that the practice would stop, but it appears Russian officials have decided that if they can’t poison the dogs, they’ll simply kill them another way.

The manager of Basya Service, Alexei Sorokin, has told the Associated Press that the dogs are ‘biological trash.’  Justifying the mass killing, he says that it would reflect badly on Russia if someone where attacked or bitten by a stray dog.

Clearly killing dogs is something that he doesn’t think will reflect badly on the country!

Well, if dogs are biological trash then this is one person who won’t be watching or supporting the Olympic Games, which open on Friday.  Join me in doing this and don’t support any products that are made or sourced in Russia.

  1. Boycotts work. Advertisers need to know how many people will not be seeing their ads or supporting their products if they support this mass kill of dogs Russia has already let down badly enough.
