World Cup 2018 host cities in Russia allegedly killing off stray dogs ahead of tournament

As the 2018 FIFA World Cup approaches, some cities in Russia are allegedly preparing for the event in a way that has animal rights activists on edge: killing off stray dogs.

At least seven of the 11 Russian cities hosting World Cup matches have ordered street dogs to be killed off before Russia and Saudi Arabia spar off to officially commence this year’s tournament on June 14, animal-rights activists told Fox News.
