Not just in Canguu, been a spate of poisonings on other beaches in the past 2 weeks also. Makes you wonder who's behind this. A lot of of the beach dogs and other strays have disapeared recently. A friend of mine had his dog poisoned poor little thing died a horrible death, the vet couldn't save her. Why are people doing this? Is it a co-ordinated cull or is it just coincidental individual dog haters?

This is also happening in Thailand. Aggressive dogs on the beaches have been a big problem in Bali for years.

@J West, those nice dogs aren’t aggressive. Wondering that in Buddhist country like Kingdom of Thailand such things happened, because it’s against Buddhist humanity.

@J West, that sounds like hyperbole to me..definition of hyperbole is an exaggeration to prove a point... In 4 decades of living in Bali I have never seen 'aggressive'dog behaviour otherthan if that dog was being hurt or threatened...
