If you follow my OMD Mondays, you will remember a few weeks ago when I posted about the issue with culling stray dogs in Sochi "due" to the Olympics.
If you missed it, feel free to go ahead and check it out HERE
A short recap of the post mentioned above:
Sochi has a huge stray "problem"
With the Olympics coming there, they wanted to do something to remove the strays from the streets.
Their bright idea was to poison these dogs.
At any rate the world spoke up! We rised against this.
And we THOUGHT we had gotten through to them.
BUT instead photos and other proof started showing up that dogs were indeed still being poisoned and found dead on the streets of Sochi.
Long story short, they went behind peoples backs and hired a non government company to do their dirty work for them.
|Biological trash!!!!???? This is how the dogs of Sochi are classified.|
So what did we do?
We stood up . . . AGAIN!
We fought back.
And just a couple mornings ago, I have received an email which I have copied and will paste below. I wanted to share it with you.
