Outrage After Kennel Staff Seen Killing Dogs With Clubs

Outrage After Kennel Staff Seen Killing Dogs With Clubs

Staff at a Mexican kennel have been sacked after using a wooden club to beat dogs to death and laughing about it.

The men who were apparently acting on the orders of their boss and who worked at the dog shelter in the town of Huatulco, in the south-western Mexican state of Oaxaca, can be seen in a video pulling some of the dogs out of their cages on a lead and then beating them to death.

And far from being shocked, fellow staff encouraged them and even filmed the killing of two of the dogs which they posted online.

One of the men was seen bashing the dog on the back and the head with the massive club and is heard saying: "Hey look, look, it's eye has fallen out."

The horrific images that mainly show the killing of a young female dog tied to a post show how it dies after being hit repeatedly.

Speaking after the images were quickly shared throughout the country on social media networks, local government spokesman Cristo Lebron said: "Regarding the video that was posted online on social networks about animal abuse carried out by staff at the municipal kennel, the video was shot a few months ago.

"The abuse was carried out under the instructions of the kennel manager Andres de Jesus Santos Moscoso who told his employees to get rid of unclaimed dogs in this way rather than paying for them to be killed in a humane way by a vet."

He said that the staff involved had been sacked and that as a result the matter had been closed, although animal-rights activists are demanding a criminal case be filed as well.
