In our first visit, we identified the total number of dogs, age group and gender to figure out the size of the problem. It was never easy to count dozens of animals in a small, dark space without any isolation devices.
An experienced activist and the guardian worked together to find about 70 dogs that could be neutralized, and about 20 puppies. The total population is estimated to be about 100 because there are mothers who have given birth to babies about 10 days ago, and hiding dogs from every corner of the factory. In addition, there are a couple of dogs that are nearing maturity or in early and mid-term pregnancy.
While we were talking with the guardian and looking around the scene, we heard a lot of dogs fighting. Some dogs were bitten on their foreheads, and some dogs were running around with their heads down. The guardian said that the dogs were often bitten and killed while fighting with each other.
If the dogs get pregnant again and give births again, the number of dogs will be even more out of control. The only way to solve this awful space, created jointly by the incompetence of the guardian and the irresponsibility of the local government, is through spay and neuter surgery and adoption.
