A woman protests after the police caught dozens of stray dogs thought to be involved in the death of four people in Mexico City, on January 12, 2013. Animal rights activists have voiced doubts that dogs are to blame for the death of at least four people in a country torn by runaway crime, but prosecutors insist that only canines could have caused such carnage, with bones exposed and body parts bitten off. Hundreds of Mexico City residents took their dogs to mobile sterilization units Thursday as the city stepped up a campaign to reduce the number of street dogs after a string of deadly attacks. The city prosecutor's office said stray dogs mauled four people to death, and perhaps two more victims, in the past two weeks.
