Update To Dozens Of Working Dogs Massacred

We received a ton of feedback on our article last week that was originally posted at SOFREP.  The feedback went from anger to more anger and rightfully so.  Thankfully, our good friends at SOFREP have posted an update:

Last week, photos of dead working dogs surfaced from Kuwait showing the unnecessary killing of at least 24 working dogs after Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) cancelled the contract with Eastern Securities.
