Yakut shelter for dogs will check a special commission

Yakut shelter for dogs will check a special commission

The overexposure point in Yakutsk, where rabies and containers with corpses of dogs and cats were discovered, will be checked by a special commission. It will include representatives of the media, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and members of the government.

According to the press service of the Government of Yakutia, the commission on checking the city’s overexposure point should objectively assess by March 12 whether the euthanasia of about 200 cats and dogs was lawful, and also to determine whether epizootic rules were violated during the quarantine period. 

Last week, rabies was discovered in one of the dogs in the city’s overexposure station in Yakutsk. The shelter went into quarantine mode, but a group of livestock defenders was able to enter the territory where they found two containers with animal corpses. As later explained in the department veterinary medicine, euthanasia were dogs and cats that were in contact with the animal with a positive test for rabies. The second container was with corpses prepared for disposal from city streets.

Earlier, the mayor of Yakutsk, Sardan Avksentieva introduced the initiative to introduce the State Duma dog tax. In her opinion, such a measure would help improve the situation with stray dogs in the region. True, lawmakers criticized her idea, deciding that it will become unbearable for the inhabitants of the country.
