Bhutan is beset with stray dogs. In every town, village and
even way out in the countryside you will come across random dogs,
lying around in the middle of the road oblivious to the passing
traffic enjoying the sunshine...
There are also tales of marauding packs of feral dogs, attacking
lone humans and generally making a nuisance of themselves.
Apparently, in true Buddhist style, they decided against a cull and
compulsory sterilisation because it might infringe their "human"
rights so now Bhutan is home to the world's largest stray dog
When I asked how they survived the locals
claimed that communities provided food and that some dogs were
adopted by kind hearted (or morally blackmailed) citizens who felt
it was their civic or religious duty to support these poor canines;
after all you never know if you might be reincarnated as a dog.
