There are no happy stories of handlers being reunited with their working dogs in this article.
Instead, there are only the deaths of at least 24 to 40 working dogs and the possibility of 90 additional dogs. Eastern Securities or E Sec was awarded a contract with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) to provide explosive detection dogs for their oil rigs. When KNPC canceled the contract with Eastern Securities, they were left with 140+ dogs that no longer had a job and were costing them money to feed and house them. Instead of being responsible with the working dogs and finding them homes, Eastern Securities chose the most cost-effective way of dealing with the unemployed working dogs, euthanasia. It is unknown at this time exactly how the dogs were killed or even if the remaining 90 are still alive.

The ultimate act of betrayal. And while I must be clear that I have not served in the military myself, I have very deep feelings regarding love of country and love of animals. What makes this act so heinous, is unlike their human counterparts, these dogs surely had a deep devotion and unconditional love to the people they served, only looking for love and acceptance in return for their potentially dangerous work. Dogs don't spend their days coming up with ways to discredit their peers or hurt their counterparts. And although they might be thought of as 'war dogs' they are still dependant on the handlers and owners for the safety and love they deserve. I really hope the people responsible are brought to some type of justice, legal, or frontier. And at bare minimum, I would surely hope that the people within the circles of contracting, especially as it relates to animals, go out of their way turn those responsible to the harm of these working dogs, into pariahs within the industry. And believe me, they deserve a lot worse. Those people responsible for the deaths of those dogs should be shot in the f-ing face.
To me, this part of the article is more important than the killing of the dogs, but if focusing on the dogs increases the awareness of human trafficking in the MidEast, excellent: " You see, in addition to killing these dogs, I believe Eastern Securities was also involved with human trafficking."
I understand why one might loose some eloquence in writing to them.
Those weren't mine , those were from minions. I will say I lost some eloquence in my postings to them.....and No .
That is good news William. I hope this story gets lots of publicity and the company who perpetuated this heinous act needs to suffer the same consequences (or worse) as the dogs they put to death.
