      Subject: Egyptian veterinary authorities announce poison campaign
      against cats and dogs

      The Egyptian veterinary authorities in Giza announced today in AL AKHBAR
      the nation wide newspaper that it is starting its campaign to poison
      cats and dogs, despite the fact that the Giza area had spaying/neutering
      projectdone through vier pfoten organization from Austria in
      cooperation with the society for protection of animal rights in Egypt
      (SPARE & the Egyptian society for Animal friends ( ESAF), A 5 year
      neutering project with WSPA to neuter animals in this governorate was
      discussed and agreed with the head of the veterinary department in
      Egypt, the project is due to start in few weeks.They are using
      strychnine that is prohibited world wide ( harmful for people &
      environment) and claim that the animal die in 5 minutes which is not
      true as the animal sometimes suffer for hours or days before it dies or
      otherwise we would not have received all these numbers of poisoned cats
      and dogs at our shelters and saved them.Following is the translation of
      the article and the Arabic article itself, please cross post and write
      to international organizations worldwide to help the animal groups in
      Egypt fighting this battle alone .An e-mail will follow with e-mail
      addresses and contacts of Egyptian embassies worldwide, please help us
      and do not ignore anything you can do to help those animals. Please
      Please help

      Translation

      The veterinary authority of Giza governorate under the Chairman of Dr.
      Abdullah Badr established a committee to eliminate stray dogs and cats
      in Giza governorate due to complains from some governmental and private
      entities . the committee is carrying 10 campaigns daily with thin the
      framework of a plan to cover the whole governorate, they are using 10
      kg. daily of Strychnine for dogs and Temec for cats, they put half a
      gram of the poison on a piece of raw meat or fish weighing 70 grams.
      and distributed in areas where the cats and dogs gather. the meat and
      fish for dogs inside private areas are provided by the owners of these
      areas and the dogs and cats in the street get the meat from the
      leftovers of the slaughter houses.. The members of the campaigns were
      masks and each animal is surrounded by 4 persons as the poisoned animal
      suffer after eating from severe stomachache-ache and dies in 5 minutes,
      after wards police cars Carry the dead animal to the burning house of
      the faculty of veterinary medicine of Cairo university to be burnt and
      later buried in the desert.

      We are desperate for your help, animal organizations in Egypt are taking
      it upon themselves alone to carry on neuter programs and vaccinating
      strays to avoid this destiny for them, but it seems that all our efforts
      are not appreciated by the government or the vet authorities that are
      not carrying their main job of helping and treating animals instead of
      poisoning them.We are also calling upon Vier pfoten to protest to this
      action as many of the animals they worked on in May and June of 2005
      will be the victims, not to mention that other areas as hurghada and
      sharm sheikh and dahab already had the same action carried on dogs that
      were already neutered and vaccinated.
