Chile Animal Shelter Killed 800 Dogs, Dumped Corpses


Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) — Chilean police today found about 100 dead cats and dogs on the grounds of an organization in Santiago that promised to care for pets and strays and instead allegedly killed 40 to 50 a week.

The Benjamin Vicuna MacKenna Animal Protection Society offered a safe place for strays and unwanted pets while it searched for new owners, according to its Web site. The owners of the animal shelter illegally killed up to 200 animals a month during the four months of a police investigation, according to district prosecutor Emiliano Arias.
