The Sochi Olympics is already stirring up controversy over its staggering cost, terrorism threats and Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay propaganda legislation. But the latest report to surface out of Sochi is sure to enrage animal-rights activists and pet owners: Sochi officials have ordered a pest-control company to ramp up its killing of stray dogs ahead of the Winter Games. Earlier this year authorities had backed off plans to kill more than 2,000 strays before the Games after backlash from the Humane Society International and other animal-rights groups. Sochi instead said it would sterilize the animals and also build more shelters. Alexei Sorokin, owner of the extermination company Basya Services, told ABC News that thousands of stray dogs wandering the streets of Sochi are posing a threat to athletes, hurting the city’s image, and that some of the strays are “biting children.” The company has been killing strays for years in Sochi, but recently it’s been asked to increase its efforts throughout the Olympics, according to media reports. Animal-rights groups say the dogs are beaten to death or poisoned with laced meat. #boycottolympics #sochi #sochi2014 #sochistraydogs #straydogsofsochi #olympicgames #wintergames #winterolympics #animalabuse #animalrights #animallover #russia
