Iran cracks down on ‘vulgar Western’ dog owners by seizing pets for ‘vaccination’ then destroying them

The confiscations were the result of a crackdown launched by local prosecutor Mohsen Boosaidi, according to local reports.

Boosaidi said: ‘Keeping and caring for dogs is haram (forbidden) according to religious leaders.

‘If we find out that anyone is keeping and caring for dogs and so is promoting vulgar Western culture, we will deal with them firmly.’
