The fate of the stray dogs  roaming near the Sochi Olympics is horrifying. They’ve been threatened with “extermination” — and the situation serves to illuminate the bizarre contrast between games that celebrate human achievement and the potential for cooperation with the real world conditions of many of the people and animals who live near the Olympic site. How can we hold these two disparate things in our hearts at the same time?  Tillie and I watched the Olympic coverage  which, at one point, broadcast the beautiful song  Nothing More, by Alternate Routes. We were so moved by the lyrics:

“We are love, we are one, we are how we treat each other when the day is done.”

Still, how could we listen to this song — when dogs were threatened with “extermination” because they were an embarrassment to the public relations face of the games? Is that how we treat the dogs when the day is done, and what does it say about us?

Now someone is trying frantically to save some of the poor souls.  Read the story. And, if you are able, please raise your voice.

    I have heard there are many dogs being “exterminated” because they are an embarrassment.Please say this isn’t so!!! All these athletes from around the world, we celebrate them but if dogs are being killed, this takes away the thrill of victory. Please reconsider your actions.

    The company that makes the poison that’s used to kill the dogs says it’s being done humanely. Jeeez.
