Authorities are looking into the killing of two stray dogs in response to them attacking gazelles

The death of two dogs in Ras Al Kahimah sparked the interest of local authorities, believed to be villagers that had killed them for attacking their gazelle.

Non-profit organisation, Ras Al Khaimah Animal Welfare Center, are supported by the local authorities and said that it was unclear how the dogs were killed, but pictures of their dead bodies show blood pouring from their heads.

Abdullah Al Bloushi, administrative manager of the centre said that they found a video on social media which shows a collection of photos showing the dead gazelles and also pictures of the dogs who appeared to have been shot or poisoned.

The farm owner suggested that the dogs became very hungry when the construction workers had stopped feeding them and attacked his herd of gazelle.

There were 13 dead Arabian sand gazelles found last Wednesday, mauled by stray dogs. The gazelles were found at a farm in Wadi Kub, which is around 40km away from Ras Al Khaimah city.
