Dogged by strays, Kosovo capital pays people to adopt them

  • 17 days ago
The mayor of Kosovo's capital is offering to pay people nearly a third of the country's minimum wage every month if they adopt a dog – in a novel bid to clear strays from the streets. According to activists there are over 4,000 strays in the city, but a shocking recent video, widely shared, of one small stray being badly beaten in the street by a young man has brought the problem into sharp focus and animal lovers out to protest.
