Egypt Governor Offers Financial Reward for Capture of Stray Dogs

Egypt Governor Offers Financial Reward for Capture of Stray Dogs

Egypt’s Red Sea governor announced on Saturday that youth living in the Red Sea governorate can earn a financial reward of EGP 100 for every five stray dogs they capture from the governorate’s streets.

Captured stray dogs should be delivered to the government’s veterinary authority for neutering, according to state-owned Al-Ahram.

“If any young person in our governorate manages to capture five stray dogs in any area of the Red Sea governorate, they will be financially rewarded,” governor Ahmed Abdullah announced during a press conference.

Abdullah added that this initiative was taken in a bid to limit the presence of stray dogs in the streets.

The governor went on to say that neutering of stray dogs is pivotal for them to be tamed and domesticated and not attack people on the streets.

An official in the government’s veterinary authority said at the press conference that neutering is an alternative to the poisoning and killing stray dogs are usually subject to. Each male and female dog that will be neutered will be labeled by a plastic mark so that they are return to the streets again following a period of observation.

Animals Rights Advocate Ahmed Hamed previously told Egyptian Streets that Egypt is rather far from the minimum international standards for animal rights.

Hamed said at the time that shooting and poisoning stray dogs is not a solution, adding that neutering animals would be the most humane way to deal with the stray dogs issue in Egypt.
