Motorists were shocked at the sight of what appears to be eight hunting dogs lined up in the back of a pickup truck in the middle of Nicosia.
The dogs had only their noses poking out under the rear door of the vehicle.
A local citizen who was disturbed at the sight of the dogs being transported in this way, took a photograph.
It is not known who owns the vehicle, nor where it was headed.
Although there is no law against it, the passerby felt moved to take the photograph of the hapless dogs.
