There is an overpopulation of dogs. The 2008 rabies outbreak negatively effected tourism and the government attempted to control the rabies by mass cullings, which garnered international outcry. The outbreak and the response damaged the relationship between humans and dogs.
But due to fear of rabies, inability to afford pet healthcare, lack of sterilization and subsequent unplanned puppies, the act of poisoning or dumping dogs (and other pets) is fairly common. Typically Bali dogs suffer from skin conditions like mange, the highly contagious parvo, or motor accidents – all of which are treatable, though not all can spare the cost. Unlike western cultures, dog ownership here is sometimes communal, which can complicate responsibility for their care. Kept dogs are usually allowed to roam freely, which allows mating and contracting of diseases to occur very easily.
During this difficult time they are suffering much more than anytime! People here have much less, poverty increases daily and the dogs here getting nearly nothing. Causes so many skin problems because of lack of nutrition. Many dogs here suffering until death.
