It’s the time of the year where we witness a surge of Christmas Bazaar’s in Kuwait. Besides the popular one that is usually held at Marina hall, there is also one held at BSK which is also annual and hosted by the British Ladies Society.
I love these bazaar’s because of the variety and diversity of booths and the number of activities that are there for the entire family!
Kuwait is under global massive attack by animal rights organizations after a Kuwaiti guy showed off pictures killing 30 stray dogs. Apparently, this lunatic is doing this to revenge for a girl that was attacked from stray dogs. I didn’t really want to display photos of the slaughtered beheaded dogs because they are way too gruesome but I just couldn’t stand by and watch this happening over and over without taking some sort of an action! The stray dogs killing story begun last year when they started poisoning them and now they’re being ruthlessly shot with rifles.
I don’t even know why officials have done nothing yet to stop this massacre. I’m utterly aware that stray dogs may pose an eminent danger to people, especially children but exterminating them isn’t the way to resolve the problem either. Below is a statement made by Animal Rescue Groups in Kuwait:
“Volunteers in animal rescue groups in Kuwait are in deep sorrow forwhat happened to the little child attacked by stray dogs, but theshooting rampage done by Kuwaiti men show nothing but recklessness,irresponsibility and weakness.Maha Mlajmah is a volunteer in one of the associations based oncharity for the Protection of Animals in Kuwai : “We were shocked tohear o the attack of the stray dogs of the little girl, we pray to Godshe recovers well. That’s when we started to move towards thegovernment and the media to demand action to be taken effectivelybetween the state and the animal rescue organizations to avoid suchincidents. In the end we are just a group of volunteers only who havetried in the past with all our energy to make law for animals, but wedid not get to any result, and this is the result of neglect.Horror doesn’t end there, the disaster got global when we saw onsocial networks where a young Kuwaiti brags of many pictures of killedhomeless dogs he claims have killed as revenge for the attacked child,the shock was on a global level, he did not kill the dogs concernedthat attacked the girl, but but killed dozens of stray dogs randomlyin the name of justice.Shameful & disgraceful as it is, this young man along with two otherguys representing a classy sport in Kuwait, take heroism of the awfulcrime on behalf of Kuwait, who is now under sharp attack fromcharities & organizations of animal rights around the world, not onlyagainst the killer, but against Kuwait as a state & Islam.Read the rest of this post »
Our blog friend Dallal has spotted this poor kitty stuck on the top of Jeep Hummer on Gulf Road without driver knowing. She says the cat was trying to jump over at first but eventually decided to sit back and enjoy the ride.
I’m a regular visitor to The Scientific Center, I just like how they keep coming up with new activities and events for family. I passed by the TSC yesterday and saw a poster for The Robot Zoo at the adventure zone, it’s a traveling exhibit that showcases the biomechanics of giant interactive robot animals to explain how real animals work, nice. My favorite part of this expo is that it shows how mechanical/electrical engineering and human technology have developed, it’s certainly an exciting exhibit.
They say the expo will be open for visitors till November 2013, it’s a great weekend activity for the family.
I read on the paper that starting next week Ministry of Health will launch animal rescue service dedicated to the rescue of injured animals and pets in Kuwait to take them to veterinary hospital, they will also launch a hotline so that people can report any animal accidents. I’m so glad with this initiative, I often see poor cats and dogs being ran over on Kuwait streets and are left to suffer and die in pain. I recall several weeks ago I saw an injured horse that was also hit by a car on Belajat street but there was nothing that they could do.
I’ll make sure to update this post with the animal ambulance hotline number when they launch it next Saturday. Read more [link]
