Stop Recreationally Poisoning Dogs in Moscow

Target: Moscow Officials

Goal: Stop people from poisoning other people’s dogs as a sport

Despite being extremely popular, hunting is a horrible sport in which poor innocent animals become victims every single day. The usual animals that are hunted are wild animals, such as deer and rabbits. In Moscow, Russia, however, a string of unexplained and unexpected dog deaths are raising questions regarding a new type of hunting. Based off of the evidence, it seems like dog hunting is starting to become a popular hobby for some of the residents. This trend must not continue because innocent dogs and dog owners are being mistreated.

Throughout Moscow, dogs are being poisoned by food that mysteriously appears in parks where these dogs are playing and roaming around freely. According to the Moscow Times, dog owner, Vera Lesovets recently lost her five-year old Corgi, Yasha to food poisoning. Yasha had eaten something at Moscow park, fell into a seizure, and died in the veterinarian’s hands. The veterinarian stated that Yasha was the sixth dog that had died from unexpected food poisoning. An official criminal investigation has opened after roughly 70 dogs died in one week in Moscow, where animal cruelty is illegal but the animal cruelty laws are rarely enforced.

After investigating, dog-forums and specific websites have raised red lights on this situation. Certain online community chat rooms discuss effective ways, methods, and means to poison dogs, such as infecting foods with chemicals and scattering them throughout the park. The participants of these websites also post heinous pictures of the dogs they have murdered and labeled them trophies. These dog hunters are placing food near dog parks and dog paths to lure these innocent animals right into their untimely deaths.

Although an investigation has opened, the officials must enforce the animal cruelty laws better in Moscow. They must look out for suspicious people who are spilling foods in the park. Dog owners should feel safe when they walk their beloved pets, and not scared that their dogs may be one bite away from their deaths.


Dear Moscow Officials,

The number of dog deaths within your city is unacceptable. It appears that certain people within the community are taking up dog hunting as a personal hobby and you must help stop it immediately. These dog hunters are poisoning food, and then scattering it throughout Moscow park waiting for innocent dogs to eat it and die consequently.

Online forums and websites also reveal that these dog hunters are posting pictures of their kills, a barbarous and cruel act. The fact that the dog hunters are sharing their glory with each other is sick. Dogs have been beloved pets for centuries and they must be protected from horrible people. Animal cruelty cannot be tolerated and the investigation must be done efficiently.

Please save these dogs and put an end to dog hunting.

  1. For every action there is a reaction. According to the law of karma, if we cause

    pain and suffering to other living beings, we must endure pain and suffering in

    return, both individually and collectively. We reap what we sow, in this life and

    the next, for nature has her own justice. No one can escape the law of karma.

    • Gael Marconi says:

      some can escape karma–evil people. we must NOT ever rely on karma–taking action and making sure these people are PUNISHED is what must be done. Taking the lazy way out is not the answer.

  2. I can’t believe what some people are like. They must be mentally ill. Studies have shown that animal abusers are psychopaths actually, who are the kind to multiply murder. They are dangerous. They should be locked away in mental hospitals. They should not be allowed the opportunity to reproduce their evil mental illness.

  3. Please stopp the poisonig of Dogs by hunters.

  4. Rachel Hussain says:

    I don’t know why people think that so much killing will make things go away. Have some compassion and show these poor homeless animals some love a bowl of food and fight for their rights.
