US Security firm slaughters dozens of bomb dogs after losing oil contract

On June 17th, a horrific image began circulating on Facebook: a slew of dead dogs, 24 in all, massacred on the grounds of a US security company in Kuwait.

Former employees of this company, Eastern Securities, as well as US dog vendors and the Kuwaiti government whistleblower who posted the photo, exclusively tell the Post of longstanding abuse of dogs in ES’s care — as well as the recruitment of impoverished workers from third-world nations who are then held against their will, without passports, work visas or cell phones.
...
“Those dogs were mistreated,” says Amy Swope, an American who worked for Eastern Securities in Kuwait from July to November of 2014. “A lot of them were underfed, had eye and skin infections, lesions, bacterial infections, diarrhea, and cancerous growths. One dog had uterine cancer so bad I begged them to euthanize her.”
...
In the week since the photo of the dead dogs went viral, Eastern Securities’ two phone numbers were disconnected, and the email shut down. When reached by the Post on Friday afternoon, Baisey’s project manager Tony Touchet hung up.

Baisey insists he has nothing to hide, and that his company has not gone dark.

Although 24 is the number being repeated by a lot of news sites, the total is allegedly almost twice that - Perhaps even more.

4. Our country is capable, willing and has a history of torture inmates, suspects, enemy soldiers

 

Native Americans, slaves and freedmen, women. . .are we surprised when something in our country does the same thing to animals?

If we as a country have no value for human life, why should animals concern us?

Yes, this is a slam against my country. I am tired of American exceptional and American hypocrisy.
