Target: Anerood Jugnauth, Prime Mister of the Republic of Mauritius

Goal: Stop the horrific killing of dogs to control their population on an island that is a popular tourist destination.

A video has emerged showing the full extent of the barbaric methods used to control the dog population on the island of Mauritius. In the video men drag the dogs into a cement enclosure, step on their necks, and puncture their hearts with lethal injections. The other dogs in the enclosure try to desperately scramble up the walls to escape meeting the same fate, but all of them are eventually killed.

The video is difficult to watch. There is no anesthetic used on the animals to dull their suffering. They panic as they watch other dogs stand up, stagger, painfully convulse, and die in contorted heaps on the cement floor.

Officials want to control the population of dogs on the island to keep it appealing to the tourists that love to flock to there to bask in the sun and enjoy the sandy beaches. Tourists are unaware of the torment being wrought on these dogs. Perhaps, if they knew, they wouldn’t be so eager to visit.

There are other more humane ways to control the dog population. They could implement a spay and neuter program, which would prevent the current generation from having more puppies. This solution would be effective without being cruel.

Sign this petition to stop the slaughter of these dogs and encourage the government of Mauritius to implement a more humane way of dealing with the dog population.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Prime Mister Jugnauth,

A video has emerged of the brutal capture and killing of dogs by the government-funded Mauritian Society for Animal Welfare. In the video men drag the dogs into a cement enclosure, step on their necks, and puncture their hearts with lethal injections.

The video is difficult to watch. There is no anesthetic used on the animals to dull their suffering. They panic as they watch other dogs stand up, stagger, painfully convulse, and die in contorted heaps on the cement floor.

You have the power to protect these animals from being murdered. You could implement a more humane way to control the dog population. A spay and neuter program would prevent the current generation from having more puppies and reduce the dog population without cruelty. Please stop this animal abuse from occurring in Mauritius.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. I have visited Mauritius in 2014 and again in 2016. Must admit I was shocked to see the amount of stray dogs at Club Med La Plantation D’Albion and in and around Port Louis. There is a humane way of putting these dogs down and not the way the Mauritian government is going about it……BARBARIC….we live in modern times and there is so much available on the market regarding the process of putting dogs down. The Mauritian Government is not exactly setting an example to their youth and future generations regarding this matter. SHAME ON YOU ALL AND HANG YOU HEADS IN SHAME!!!!!! It seems to me that the Mauritian government is trying to save money but social media is powerful and such things will never go unnoticed.
