Dogs are in every corner and they are thousand and thousand.
This dogs does not have owners. They go free by the street, living and eaten whatever they found. Some charitative persons give food to this sad and poor dogs.
Not to long ago, I saw at Plaza Victoria a "jauria" of about 25 hungry dogs barking
and fightyng furious between them.
