No One Volunteered to Kill all the Stray Cats and Dogs for the Sochi Olympics

Officials said the plan was changed because it didn't receive any public bids to carry out the extermination. Instead the city will seek an alternate route of “keeping, treating and sterilizing animals,” according to Russian news agency RIA Novosti.

Really? There’s nobody in Russia looking to get their jollies by offing some strays? I find that very hard to believe.
