Hundreds of stray dogs poisoned in Karachi

KARACHI: Officials have poisoned hundreds of dogs in southern Karachi in the latest effort to curb a population of strays that attack thousands of people each year in the city.

Bodies of dead dogs littered areas of the city where municipal workers gathered them for disposal.

“At least 700 dogs have been killed only in two areas of Karachi’s south in the last couple of days,” said Sattar Javed, a spokesman for the municipal authority.

Officials estimated the citywide operation that started this week had culled thousands of strays but did not have a full accounting for all six city districts.
