Australia Shoots Rescue Dogs Dead To Keep People Indoors

A local government in Australia, under its interpretation of COVID-19 limitations, has opted to shoot and kill animal shelter rescue dogs to "protect" the community from the risk of virus transmission.

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that the Bourke Shire Council, in the state's northwest, slaughtered the dogs to prevent volunteers at a Cobar-based animal shelter from traveling to pick up the animals last week, according to the council's watchdog, the Office of Local Government.

"OLG has been informed that the council decided to take this course of action to protect its employees and community, including vulnerable Aboriginal populations, from the risk of COVID-19 transmission," a spokesman from the government agency announced in a statement obtained by the news outlet.
