WARNING: Disgusting & Upsetting

Moskva's Forest of Death

Moskva, fUSSR (CBCnews) -- Animal rights activists here say unlicensed pet
sellers are dumping unsold animals in a forest on the city's outskirts.

Located in a cavernous warehouse on the edge of the city, Moscow's infamous
Ptichy Rynok - or bird and animal market - is filled with boxes of puppies
and kittens each Sunday. Licensed dealers sell healthy pedigreed animals
inside, but unlicensed dealers line the entrance to the market, trying to
sell or trade other animals.

At the end of the day, the unlicensed dealers dump the animals they don't
sell in a nearby stretch of birch forest. Many of the animals die there.

Veterinarian Igor Loginov says most Moscovites can't afford his services,
meaning most pets are never neutered or sterilized. Consequently, packs of
mean-looking stray dogs are a common sight in Moscow and many unwanted
litters of kittens and puppies end up at Ptichy Rynok, he said.

Anna Filimova and a group of friends have created a website that shows
pictures of the bodies of kittens and puppies in what she calls the Forest
of Death. She says they're dumped in the forest because sellers don't want
to pay to feed their animals for another week. Filimova also blames Russia's
lack of animal protection laws. "If a hooligan kicks your pet to death,
there's no law against it."
