A shelter for dogs is set on fire for the second time in the capital of Buryatia. After several serious attacks of stray dogs on people over the past month, dog hunters have become more active in the republic.

On his Instagram page, Ulan-Ude Mayor Igor Shutenkov condemned the actions of the arsonists, since the destruction of shelters is a threat to the people themselves. He also promised that the problem with stray animals in the city will be solved within a month and a half; there will be no shelters in residential areas in the future. At the same time, now it is impossible to allow the already caught dogs to be on the street again.

The mayor of the city promised to punish the activated dog hunters, recalling that criminal liability is provided for this. Now professionals who are equipped with everything necessary are working on the trapping of stray dogs. The authorities are looking for places to organize new shelters.

Over the past month in Buryatia, there have been several attacks by dogs on people: a young girl at the end of December and a boy last week had to be urgently taken to Moscow for treatment after their wounds. The Republican Investigative Committee has opened a criminal case, the officials, due to whose inaction has increased the number of stray dogs, are being established.
