Stray Dogs are being poisoned in ChennaiGokul Saravanan (Author) Published Date : Jan 13, 2020 11:02 IST
It, not rare to see a stray dog wandering around loosely in India. In Chennai, stray dogs can be seen a little much in numbers. People can often be seen feeding some stray dogs, while some can be seen to rid them out when they are nearing them.
Around 90,000 stray dogs are wandering in and around Chennai, a survey claims. There are complaints to the Corporation office of Chennai regarding many stray dog attacks. However, now a recent survey claims that many stray dogs are being killed by feeding them with poisons.
Recently, this inhuman act of killing stray dogs has been noticed an increase in the outskirt of Chennai. Unprecedented attack and disturbance caused by those stray dogs were reported as the reasons for this inhuman act. However, the Corporation of Madras doesn't feel that killing those animals would be a good idea to stop the disturbance to the public.
G Prakash IAS, the Commissioner of the Greater Chennai Corporation, insisted that killing of those stray dogs is a crime, and those who like to feed these animals can seek the assistance of the Madras Corporation.
The commissioner informed that the dog feeders could get assistance from the corporation by mail to this address, firstname.lastname@example.org. The corporation will collect the food from the volunteers and feed the stray dogs on behalf of the volunteers.
On the other side, some volunteers consider this is a welcoming move from the corporation. But, more than just collecting the foods from the volunteers, the corporation should create awareness among the people who are killing the animals. A few animal welfare activists consider that though this is a good move, this can also be used as a loophole to harass those who wish to feed the stray dogs.
Also, animal welfare activists wished that every people should need to be more kind towards animals.
