Another example of the hypocrisy of American media. We bring 10-20 from Sochi to make a political point while hundreds of thousands of American dogs and cats are being killed every year in shelters. Russia doesn’t even have this advanced animal disposal system. They tried to clean up the streets of Sochi to make it look nicer for foreigners… In Russia and many other countries cats and dogs often live on the streets for years as part of the habitat. It would make more sense if other countries start rescuing American cats and dogs from those shelters…

Ah, I’ll repost what they deleted.
Why doesn’t the author of this article do a story on the hundreds if not thousands of pet dogs our military forces kill while on night patrols in places like Iraq and Afghanistan? That’s a bit more interesting than this obvious propaganda piece. As has been noted in deleted comments there are hundreds of thousands of stray dogs right here in North America.
