On March 31, 2012 and following an incident in which a man had been attacked by stray dogs, the mayor of Sofia has given order to hunt and kill all stray dogs who happen to inhabit this district.

All healthy, neutered and socialized dogs from the Malinova Dolina district in the country capital - Sofia are going to be euthanized as aggressive, as a reaction to the incident when in the same district an old man was attacked by aggressive dogs and is in a hospital in a serious condition.

Since there is no certified test for aggression in Bulgaria, and the aggressive dogs cannot be caught because they hide from people, unlike the socialized ones, the Mayor of Sofia - Ms Fandakova - has ordered all dogs that happen to inhabit the district, and who can be caught by the hunters, to be killed.
