Eight captured stray dogs euthanised

Confirmation on Monday (11 February) that the eight stray dogs captured by the Department of Agriculture have been euthanised.

These eight dogs were part of a pack which has been terrorising residents in the George Town North area.

The pack was responsible for the death of several household pets.

DOA Animal Welfare Officer Erik Bodden revealed the Department had no choice but to euthanise the dogs, given the animals’ behaviours.

“Unfortunately those animals were euthanised. The reason for that is they were not able to be re-homed because of their temperament, so they were euthanised,” Mr. Bodden explained.

Mr. Bodden confirmed the euthanasia process is carried out by licensed veterinarians.
