‘Bourke Shire Council is the council allegedly responsible for this. I’m going to put their email up. I feel that they absolutely need to know how we all feel about it, and feel that we need to spread and share this so there’s some sort of repercussion.’

He added: ‘Surely that can’t be the logical way to deal with some dogs sitting in a pound. I’m genuinely gobsmacked by this and it’s disgraceful.’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Bourke Shire Council for comment.

According to multiple reports in the media on Monday, the council shot dead several impounded dogs, prompting a government probe into the incident.

They apparently shot the animals to prevent volunteers at a Cobar-based shelter 90 minutes away from travelling to pick them up amid strict lockdown restrictions.

A spokesman from the council’s watchdog, the Office of Local Government, said the agency was investigating the incident to determine if any companion animal and cruelty prevention laws had been broken.   

'Surely that can't be the logical way to deal with some dogs sitting in a pound. I'm genuinely gobsmacked by this and it's disgraceful,' he said
