Baku's controversial canine control policy has come under scrutiny once more with the emergence of a video showing some dogs being killed in front of children in a city suburb on the morning of July 30. The minute-long clip, which has been published on the website of RFE/RL's Azerbaijani Service, shows some men dragging the corpse of a dog, which appears to have just been shot, and throwing it unceremoniously into the back of a van while some horrified kids look on. Although city officials told local media that they had nothing to do with the destruction of the dog, a sign on the truck clearly says "BAKU EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY" in Azeri.
