Jan 17 (Interfax) - A Russian animal rights group plans to complain to law enforcement agencies and the Moscow city legislature about the recent killing of about 60 stray dogs that lived in the vicinity of one of Moscow's railroad stations, a group spokeswoman said on Monday.

The spokeswoman, Oksana Tarasyuk, told Interfax that about 60 dogs that lived in the area of Kiyevsky Station were killed on December 26 and January 3 by shooting poison capsules into them. The dead dogs were then loaded on a truck and taken away.

"Those dogs had been living on the territory near the Kiyevsky Station for nearly 10 years. Many of the dogs were sterilized and some even had chip implants in them," Tarasyuk said.

She said people living in the area had been caring for them.
