A government probe has been launched after officials in New South Wales, Australia, shot and killed shelter dogs that were due to be rescued by volunteers – allegedly in an effort to prevent the volunteers spreading Covid-19.
The dogs, one of which had just given birth to puppies, were housed in a pound in the northwest of the state, and were due to be picked up by volunteers from a Cobar-based animal shelter.
However, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Sunday that workers with the Bourke Shire Council had shot them dead last week.
The council ruled that having the volunteers come and collect the animals would somehow put council employees and the local community, including “vulnerable Aboriginal populations” (!!!) at risk of catching and spreading Covid-19, the Herald reported, citing the Office of Local Government, the council’s watchdog group.
The group is now investigating whether animal cruelty laws were broken by the council.
The volunteers say they had Covid-safe measures in place for their trip to the pound, and are reportedly distressed by the mass killing of the abandoned animals.
Moreover, it is unclear why the council considered their trip to pose such a threat, given that there have been no recent cases of Covid-19 reported in the Cobar area.
The shootings triggered an outcry on social media.
“Killing innocent rescue dogs over human paranoia of a virus that has a 99.8% chance of survival is beyond cruel,” one commenter wrote on Twitter.
“The world has gone mad.”
International commenters soon joined in to express their disgust at the animal executions.
“Australia is absolutely consumed by deranged COVID insanity.
Now they’re shooting and killing rescued dogs to prevent shelter volunteers from leaving their homes to go pick them up and care for them. Many Australians seem grateful to be locked down.https://t.co/uuImfgznXq”

“Australia has reached new levels of depravity.Rescued dogs have been shot, so that workers at the shelter don’t have to travel to look after them.It’s just mindless now.#animals#COVID19#CovidVic#covidnswhttps://t.co/1XNs9oOxZ0″

Australia has turned into a dystopian nightmare worthy of the Mad Max movies. Shooting dogs so people won’t travel to get them is savage behavior.

“We are deeply distressed and completely appalled by this callous dog shooting and we totally reject the council’s unacceptable justifications that this killing was apparently undertaken as part of a COVID-safe plan,” Lisa Ryan, a spokeswoman for Animal Liberation, said in a statement.
Much of Australia remains under some of the world’s most draconian lockdown policies, with Prime Minister Scott Morrisson promising to keep restrictions in place until 70% of the population is vaccinated.
At present less than a third of Australian adults are fully inoculated.
In New South Wales, people in the Greater Sydney area have been ordered to remain at home until the end of September.
Even outside Sydney, leaving the home is forbidden in much of the state without a “reasonable excuse,” car travel is banned save for in emergencies, home visits are not allowed, and all residents must carry proof of address outside the home.

And I mean…All heads of state in the world who feel called to their new role as dictator have been elected to their posts by democratic elections.
It is unique in human history!
None of the corona dictatorships that have emerged worldwide have needed tanks
Fear, wrong numbers, horror statistics and obedient citizens.
That was enough.
It’s no longer about Corona.
It’s about the billions that most heads of government have paid in advance to the pharmaceutical industry for a useless vaccination, and have to come back into the state treasury as soon as possible – from us!
It’s about absolute monitoring and control through the Green Pass.
It is about the division of the society vaccinated / not vaccinated, because only in this way can a society be attacked and better manipulated.
The story about the corpse sacks fits in well with this.
We read in the press:
“Europe orders free and abundant corpse bags for what is currently still being planned, namely the fourth wave!
Turkish textile company produces one million corpse bags for Europe!
– Body bags are ordered instead of shirts.
A textile company in Turkey has now received a major order from Europe; the company, with 110 employees, produces 6,000 corpse bags a day”
You can purchase such a no-name product here on Amazon. It may even be made in Turkey, but it is certainly not from Adidas, not at the price.
Of course, the product is absolutely leak-free, strong and durable.
Try them out.
My best regards to all, Venus
