The Ministry of Environment (MoE) is launching a countrywide campaign to free the streets of Qatar from stray dogs and cats. Starting from Doha city, the campaign will see deployment of a number of dedicated teams from the Livestock Management Department at the ministry trained to hunt stray cats and dogs. The campaign aims to protect the environment and maintain the overall health of citizens and residents in Qatar through elimination of all that threatens the health of citizens, especially the stray cats and dogs proliferating in the streets. Ministry is keen to maintain natural balance in the streets in accordance with international standards of the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA). The country has been divided into several administrative sections; each one will be covered by a team of well-trained personnel from the Livestock Management Department. These sections are further divided into areas on the basis of complaints made by residents. The captured animals will be registered and will undergo a medical check-up, and if found sick or infected, they will be put to death. The healthy stray animals will be sterilised then taken to safe shelters away from residential areas. Source:Qatar Chronicle
