Anger Grows After Security Company Kills 24 Bomb-Sniffing Dogs
More than twenty bomb-sniffer dogs were killed in Kuwait. The reason? They would have become weights for their owner …
The American company Eastern Securities of Kuwait, which manages the protection of oil sites, is at the heart of a dark story. A few days after losing his contract with the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (Kuwait National Petroleum Company), the latter would indeed have euthanized 24 of his bomb-detecting dogs, reports France 24. Indignant at the fate reserved for these animals who intervened on the black gold extraction fields, it was one of the firm’s employees who raised the alarm by posting photos of these dead bodies, hurriedly buried, on Facebook.
Dogs need to be active every single day. Make sure to keep your dog active each day. This could include going on a walk or run, playing fetch or simply playing tug-of-war or hide-and-seek in the home. Your dog might like a more specific activity depending on what breed he is. For example, many retrievers can spend hours paddling across a lake in pursuit of a tennis ball. Some dogs enjoy hiking or backpacking. You know his personality best, so find what he loves and try and make it part of his daily routine. Being active with your dog is good for his health and yours too.
The Kuwait National Petroleum Company has already disassociated itself from this sordid act. According to his spokesperson, only the contract between his company and the Eastern Securities of Kuwait was broken because “tests conducted by a third party to assess the ability of dogs to detect bombs in an oil installation were inconclusive. The firm even said “regret” what had happened to the dogs. In addition Karuq8, a Kuwaiti animal protection NGO, considered that the security company had done so because the doggies had become – with the breach of the contract – a burden for it.
