Thousands of dogs will be killed in Neuquén, after an outbreak of two cases of human leptospirosis. It is not the first time the City decides to exterminate dogs. The council recently approved a proposal for the urgent implementation of an existing ordinance of dog control "in order to decrease the population of these animals". For a duration of four months, strays will be killed to prevent a potential spread of the disease. This includes the killing of healthy dogs and runaways.
Please urge the government to immediately halt these plans !
