Lebanon's animal rights activists are fighting to bring to national
attention what they say are rampant trafficking and abuse, problems
that are far from priorities in a country plagued with turbulence.
While there are no official studies, activists estimate thousands --
if not tens of thousands -- of animals are smuggled into Lebanon
annually, where they are sold, transferred to other destinations or
subject to neglect or abuse.
"The situation is alarming," said Sevine Zahran of Lebanese non-governmental organization Beirut for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals (BETA).
