This is not the first time Tripoli’s municipality decides to get rid of stray dogs by killing them, and even though North Lebanon’s Governor Ramzi Nohra has banned such acts, they are still taking place. The video below is being circulated online and was shared by Lebanon Debate as well, showing a dog being shot in the middle of the street.

One of Tripoli’s FB pages is also sharing pictures of a stray dog who’s hiding in a building and they are asking if anyone can help him out.

Killing stray dogs is wrong and ineffective. Municipalities should contact local shelters or animal services to get some professional help in removing stray dogs from the street.
