It seems like things in Sochi just keep getting worse!!
We’ve all heard the horrors about the hotel rooms and how journalists are trying to make the best of the spartan conditions.
We also previously mentioned something far worse… they’re killing thousands of stray dogs to clean up the city, making way for the Winter Games.
The government wants the dogs gone before tomorrow’s Olympic opening ceremony!
So rescuers are rushing to get as many strays off the streets as possible.
Thankfully, their rescue organization is backed by a Russian billionaire. One of the rescuers, obviously upset at the government, said:
“We were told, ‘Either you take all the dogs from the Olympic Village or we will shoot them.’ On Monday we were told we have until Thursday.”
They’ve got about 80 dogs so far and have moved them to a make-shift shelter, set up outside the city.
We really hope they’re able to get these dogs off the streets in time! Save the strays!!
