Morocco: Stray dogs are shot for World Cup

Armed men stretch down one dog after another.

These are footage taken last week in the Moroccan city of Agadir. The reason for the shooting of the dogs is an upcoming visit from the FIFA, where the city should deliver a good picture. Namely, Morocco wants the 2026 World Cup to be held in the North African country.

The country has to prevail against its competitors Canada, Mexico and the USA. In the past, Morocco had already applied four times without success.

The killing of stray dogs in the run-up to such a spectacular football tournament had already caused massive horror internationally in the run-up to the European Championship in Ukraine in the Ukraine.

The protest was so strong that UEFA intervened and declared that it had never called for animals to be killed for the European Championship. “We respect the dignity of the animals and will continue to appeal to the authorities to do the same,” it said in a statement. The European Football Association donated a large sum to an initiative that castrates the animals and suspends them again. The Ukrainian government reacted to the many negative headlines back then. It imposed a killing ban and threatened with harsh penalties for animal abusers.

Whether Morocco really does a favor with killing the street dogs remains more than questionable. Especially since the competitors USA (1994) and Mexico (1970 and 1986) are given better chances to win anyway because of their experience in conducting such tournaments – and Canada, even if it is not considered an outstanding football nation, after all, on a broad infrastructure modern and World Cup-compatible sports facilities.

Nevertheless, I would like to categorize this criminal behavior of the Moroccans as follows: Morocco is a poor country and therefore cannot compete with the other competitors, USA, Mexico and Canada.

I do not mean that this country does not have the necessary infrastructure to run for office to win for the World Cup 26.
I mean, only rich countries have a chance to get to the top of the game with corruption and bribes. The visit from FIFA causes a massacre for the animals, but that will not help if Morocco would eliminate even all the strays of the country.
Because for FIFA is not crucial, how many millions of strays has the country but how many millions of dollars the country can pay for bribes, in order to get the first place for World Cup 2026!
From the link I enclose, everyone can read a lot about FIFA’s corrupt activities.

Attention, very disturbing pictures!
