These three dogs were poisoned overnight. The city council no longer poisons dogs in part because of the help that Mayan Families is giving by spaying and neutering dogs every month to reduce the amount of animals in the street.

These poor dogs were poisoned by someone throwing poison indiscriminately.

It is very sad to see because we know how much these dogs must have suffered before they died.

Unfortunately, poisoning is a common form of ridding the streets of dogs. We are fortunate that the Muni in Panajachel has stopped this barbaric practice.

We hope that the classes in Humane Education that we are giving three times a week in schools will help to educate the children that this is not the way to treat animals.
