Several impounded dogs due to be rescued by a shelter have instead been shot dead by a rural council in NSW under its interpretation of COVID-19 restrictions, alarming animal activists and prompting a government probe.
Bourke Shire Council, in the state’s north-west, killed the dogs to prevent volunteers at a Cobar-based animal shelter from travelling to pick up the animals last week, according to council’s watchdog, the Office of Local Government.
For some reason I am reminded that serial killers start by killing pets and then graduate to kill people. You do have to admit that livestreaming on-the-spot executions of curfew violators will be a great way to advertise you should stay home to help fight the spread of Covid. The dogs are just a test run, the pilot episode if you will.
