Completely disgraceful for the US not to take the dogs back from Kuwait for the dogs to retire in peace for all the service they did for security and safety. Vile. They know very well what savage Muslims think about dogs. This is unacceptable. The owner of the company Eastern Securities responsible for this animal torture was Kuwaiti CEO Fathalla Balbeisi.
“They are a terrible, terrible company,” says Roger Abshire of USK9 Unlimited, which cut ties with Eastern Securities in 2008.
“Those dogs were mistreated,” says Amy Swope, an American who worked for Eastern Securities in Kuwait from July to November of 2014. “A lot of them were underfed, had eye and skin infections, lesions, bacterial infections, diarrhea, and cancerous growths. One dog had uterine cancer so bad I begged them to euthanize her.”

Dozens of bomb sniffing dogs ‘killed by American security company in Kuwait after its contract with oil firm ended’

- At least 24 dogs were killed by Eastern Securities, animal campaigners said
- US firm accused of killing them after contract with Kuwaiti oil firm ended
- Workers had not been paid for two months so allegedly took action

Dozens of bomb sniffing dogs have been killed by an American security company after its contract with an oil firm ended, animal rights activists have claimed.
Eastern Securities of Kuwait has been accused of murdering the dogs because they were no longer needed after its deal with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) ran out.
At least 24 dogs were slaughtered. Pictures of their dead bodies were posted on Facebook, including an image showing a worker standing on top of one of the canines.
One horrifying picture shows the dead dogs piled up, while another shows two gloating workers standing over one of the animals.
Animal rights campaigner Esmail Al Misri, who has called for the security firm to be prosecuted, told the Arab Times that 90 more dogs could be killed.
He said workers killed the hounds because they had not been paid for two months after the firm’s contract with KNPC ended.
‘We know how dogs that are well-fed and well taken care of look. The photos were taken immediately after the incident so we can rule out dehydration as a cause of their sickly state,’ Mr Al Misri said, implying they were killed.
An Eastern Securities worker said the company was meant to humanely euthanize the dogs in small groups, but another employee ‘jumped the gun’ and killed them all in one go.
He confirmed to the Arab Times that workers had not been paid and that the contract with KNPC had ended, but said this was not the reason the bomb sniffing dogs were killed.
He claimed they were killed because they were ill or old, saying some had tumors, cataracts and problems with their hip joints.
The security firm employee also claimed a handful of the canines were put down because they were too aggressive. [If you abuse a dog, of course he becomes aggressive]
‘These dogs were suffering in the condition they were in. In my opinion, this should have been done a year ago,’ the anonymous worker said.
He also claimed the company asked animal welfare groups in Kuwait to adopt the dogs, but they said no.
It is not clear how the dogs were killed.
Daily Mail Online has contacted Eastern Securities of Kuwait for comment.
KNPC told Kuwait’s state news agency that it was not involved with the killings. It said the dogs had recently failed on a test of their ability to sniff out explosives.
