Stray dogs situation in Cyprus out of control

The situation with stray dogs in Cyprus is out of control according to Cyprus Animal Party which has been on the receiving of complaints from several communities. A recent complaint they received involved a chicken farmer who reported that a pack of stray dogs decimated his livestock. Following this incident, Animal Party noted that this situation poses major risks to public health and government departments and agencies should coordinate to solve the problem. According to their statement, on one hand a heroic effort is being made by the already overcrowded animal shelters to take stray dogs off the streets, and on the other hand, illegal dog farms continue to breed dogs and sell them to pet shops.
