Animal Rights Group in Lebanon To Find A Strategy To Deal With Stray Dogs

The Lebanese animal rights NGO “Animals Lebanon” held a meeting with the Minister of Interior and Municipalities Nouhad Machnouk and the Minister of Agriculture Director-General Louis Lahoud to find a national strategy to deal with stray dogs.

According to sources, the NGO will conduct a survey to gather information about the dogs’ health conditions, the problems they are causing to civilians, and how Lebanese municipalities are handling the issue.

The government is responsible for maintaining the safety of the people and the dogs. The meeting’s goal was to find the best solution to ensure the well-being of everyone.

Last year, President Michel Aoun signed the animal protection and welfare law. However, some municipalities did not enforce the law.

Lebanon witnessed a series of dog poisoning in several regions at the beginning of January, and heartbreaking videos were posted online.

The Municipality of Tripoli is dealing with stray dogs differently. The city will be vaccinating 800 dogs this month against rabies, which is a deadly virus transmitted through bites or scratches.
