ZIHguen Las Estupideces

All I can say is you must be relatively new to Zihua. 15-20 years ago roaming packs of unowned dogs on the beach was definitely a problem but the years of the spay/neuter program since has turned that completely around. There are not many stray animals on the street or beaches anymore. Yes, there are a few that are allowed to wander but they usually have a home and are generally well fed and cared for.

If you call 37 years of experience and over 21 years of local residency here in Z, then yes, I am "relatively new to Zihua".

It may be less than "x" years ago, but I still see many more than "a few".
"Not many" is a subjective term.
I need objectivity and actual real life statistics to make a proper determination on this, and most other issues.
My perception based on 1st hand observation, as I always WALK from one area or colonia to the next, is that I see it as a major problem in some areas.
If someone in their judgement believes that the situation is under control, and is NOT a problem, so be it.

Let the bickering begin :badass:

Since you insist on changing the topic I wanted to discuss, how many dogs have you adopted or taken to be neutered/spayed over the years here? We've adopted at least 6 over the past 3 decades, and I've lost count of how many we've taken to SPAZ to be operated and others we've found homes for. It's one thing to talk the talk, another to walk the walk. Strolling around town doesn't count. ;-)

Reporting them to the city is something those of us familiar with "the system" avoid at all costs. I'd rather see a dog alive and being a nuisance on the beach or street than dead. The last time there was a large roundup of dogs, they took them and put them in a corral and shot them while the dogs ran around in terror. The current administration shows no progress on the matter. They just want to sell cement to the public works projects.
