Mexican Border Town Offers Tax Exemption for Euthanizing Dogs
SEPTEMBER 1, 2011
There's a stray dog problem in San Luis Rio Colorado, Mexico. There are about 70,000 stray dogs roaming San Luis Rio Colorado in northern Mexico. The town has become so overrun with dogs, that the government began offering a tax exemption of $17 per stray that was offered for euthanasia. The solution? If you bring in the dog for euthanization, you get a tax exemption.hooray! Sarcasm there of course. Clearly, there's no spay/neuter program in this place.
