Dog Cull in Bali: Take Action Against Cruelty


WSPA Australia & New Zealand | Stop Press - The World Society for the Protection of Animals

Bali’s dogs are dying. The island’s authorities, in a knee-jerk reaction to six suspected human rabies fatalities, are culling dogs.

But over 90 per cent of the island’s dogs are owned and roam freely, meaning the majority of the animals being killed are healthy, loved pets.

So far, over 1,000 dogs have died. Strychnine poison is widely used, which leaves the animals conscious throughout the convulsions that end in suffocation. The suffering is acute.
