KABUL — Civilians in Afghanistan’s capital live in constant fear of being killed in a targeted attack as the war with the Taliban and other extremist groups drags on. But at night, a different war is being fought — against criminals and packs of stray dogs stalking the streets.rr
The shop owners in one Kabul neighbourhood speak of a shadow government.rr
“There are dogs and armed thieves who make people’s lives here hell,” said Mr Fahim Sultani, a local elder who works from the empty dusty hulk of the run-down Aryub Cinema in the northwest part of the city, which he has converted into a makeshift office.rr
As Afghanistan’s economy has been battered by the coronavirus, crime has flourished in Kabul. Just after the lockdown last year, the dogs on Mr Sultani's street, and a handful of security guards, watched what has become a staple in the city: An ice cream vendor in front of the theatre was shot at and robbed, he said.rr
The stray dogs roam throughout the city and are a strange and sad fixture of Kabul, known for snapping, snarling and attacking people passing by, mostly those just trying to eke out a living. By day, the animals rest, conserving their energy until twilight, when they, along with the criminals, command the streets.rr
Almost every city in the world has to deal with street crime, and some with dog packs. Few, if any, have to navigate those threats while also confronting daily bomb attacks, targeted assassinations and 40 years of unrelenting war.rr
Certain streets and intersections almost demarcate thief and dog territory, where groups of a dozen or so strays led by a pack leader that residents have come to easily recognise prowl between the shadows and the pitch-black strips of road where people dare not walk.rr
Most of the dogs look like a cross between a shepherd and a Labrador and are small in stature compared with the hulking ones that are used often for fighting in the country. The strays live among piles of trash, at the end of street alleys, near restaurants where they can scavenge for food.rr

Despite repeated efforts from the city’s municipality to kill them — and the presence of several shelters, Afghan pet owners and empathetic, dog-friendly foreigners eager to adopt — the animals thrive in the streets.rr
Mr Sultani estimated that about 10 people in his neighbourhood were bitten last year. They were mostly vendors tethered to their mobile food stands who were not nearly fast enough to outrun the strays.rr
Rabies vaccinations are frequent, especially in Kabul, and they take a chunk out of Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health budget. Ms Masouma Jafari, a spokeswoman for the ministry, said it spends around US$200,000 (S$268,500) a year on the vaccines across the country.
