I can see where this is heading Maiden and whilst I can see why many are distressed by the cruelty shown towards wild dogs, I have to admit that I dont truts Egypt to carry a campaign in which these animals can be captured and put down in a civilised manner. Or even better, captured, castrated and let them free in the desert.
The fact remains that.the dog population is out of control and whilst most are shy from attacking people in crowded places, they can be agresive when there is noone around and you happen to step in "their terrotory".
Rabies is also a problem and I suspect that many locals don't seek treatment after a dog attack because of ignorance and or costs. I wonder if we have any data regarding deaths of humans from rabies in Egypt.
I think given that Egypt is still a very undeveloped country and doesn't have the mechanisms to deal wth the dog population in a developed manner, there are only two choices regarding wild dogs: these are either exterminate in ways that are afordable albeit cruel and painful or feel compasion for the animals and let them roam freely, thus poising a health and danger hazard for the people.
I choose the former.
