from the government-funded Mauritius Society for Animal Welfare (MSAW)

hit-or-miss lethal injections. The shocking eyewitness account
shows that as many as 20 dogs are killed in full view of one
another and that they try desperately to escape by climbing the kennel
gates and walls.
can people enjoy a vacation on your 'Paradise Island' while knowing
that such horrors are taking place near their hotels?" pleads Anderson.
"Dogs are very loving and sensitive beings. We owe it to them to find a
compassionate solution to the overpopulation crisis in Mauritius."
