They Shot Andrea's Dogs: Once More Egyptian Dogs Massacred

 December 2007

Andrea went down to feed the dogs as usual, as she had the past 10 months since she had been in Cairo.  She found 2 of them dead beside each other, the other two were not in sight.

On my way to her home, after she called me in hysteria not believing this happened, I spotted the other two, I went down and got one of them. I had the power and the determination to get her and I just carried her from the street, unfortunately the other big one ran away.

We tried to spot him again, and an hour later he showed up.  It seems he was trying to look for his friends, and he found them dead. He smelled them and stood there.  I tried to catch it on camera but it was not good, as it was already dark and I hardly could get the other photos that I sent. Andrea tried to call him but he just left immediately in the opposite way, and God knows where he will be or what will happen to Him.  We will try to locate him, but I do not know what will happen.

While standing on the street to take pictures, another couple of foreigner passed by us and said that this is the third time this week they saw such a scene of dogs shot on the corners of streets.

Andrea was devastated!  She said, "I do not know how long I will be able to hold on; they killed the kindest two of them."  The one I caught is also very kind but rather newer than the other ones.

They were killed in the morning according to porters in the area.  They were already bloated and smelly when I got there to take pictures,

For those of you who do not know who is Andrea, she is the famous American/German woman who adopted our big boy, Lord, and wrote Lord tales when she adopted him. She is also a dog trainer and has been helping us for a while now.  She also did our spare leaflet and was working on another massacre that happened in the Haram area two days ago, when this was happening to her dogs. 

It is even more astonishing as it is known that no shooting is allowed in residential areas where foreigners, specially Americans are living. The madness is going on and will not stop, since once again we called the municipality and complained trying to know whose orders it was this time, and the reply came that we should not bother calling, they will continue to shoot and consider it their mission.
