Stray dogs kill 33 sheep in Salfit-area village

Feb. 18, 2015 6:05 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 21, 2015 12:26 P.M.)
SALFIT (Ma'an) -- Thirty-three sheep were killed by stray dogs on a farm in the village of Qarawat Bani Hussan west of Salfit on Wednesday, local farmers said.

Owner of the farm, Mahmoud Marie, told Ma'an that six stray dogs attacked his farm, killing the sheep in their pen.

Marie told Ma'an that each of the sheep is worth around 1,000 shekels ($260), meaning that the incident cost him nearly $8,600.

He called upon the Palestinian Minister of Agriculture and the veterinary services to solve the problem of stray dogs in the region.

Marie argued that the reason there are so many stray dogs in the area is that settlers bring them by car and leave them in the area, though this allegation could not be verified.
