Sochi Officials Order Stray Dogs Killed Ahead Of Olympics

Sochidogs.jpg Sorokin described his company as being involved in the "catching and disposing" of dogs, although he refused to specify how the dogs would be killed or say where they would take the carcasses. The dogs have been causing numerous problems, Sorokin said Monday, including "biting children." He said he was stunned last week when he attended a rehearsal for the opening ceremony and saw a stray dog walking in on the performers. "A dog ran into the Fisht Stadium, we took it away," he said. "God forbid something like this happens at the actual opening ceremony. This will be a disgrace for the whole country." The strays tend to gather near construction sites where they have gotten food and shelter from workers. Dogs have even been able to get inside the Olympic Park and accredited hotel complexes and villages, in the coastal cluster of arenas and venues up in the mountains.

Their reactions were observed under three conditions - when their owners were absent, when they were silent and when they were encouraging. The dogs were offered a treat after following directions with specific toys. They were much more interested in the treat when their owners were present as opposed to when they were with a stranger. When the owners were silent or positively motivated their dogs, there was little but still notable influence on the dogs' levels of incentive.
