The Street Dog Issue
Sometimes it is boring to explain or give energy to people who feel
that by killing a species problems go away -
1994 Surat - the Municipality of Surat exterminated all street dogs
and were visited by the plague - tourism declined throughout India
which led to hardships for many citizens.
No one not even animal welfarists or rightists are denying that the
population of street dogs are too many - however the main problem
arises with us humans - remove the food source and the dogs will go
There are people who blame racehorses for gambling and the hardships
that come with it. This working animal who carries roughly 40 people's
employment on his back is normally dumped on the roads at the age
of 8 (lifespan 30) Never having learned to feed himself
or find food or shelter they die miserably mainly of plastic bag colic
(intestine impaction). EVEN the so called bio degradable turn into
razor sharp pieces in the stomach and cause internal bleeding.
I have a case of a cow having its eyes poked out because the
owner let it stray into someone else's carrot field to feed as in
not feeding his animal he makes a bigger profit. Most cattle die 3
times. The Vet is paid 1000 rups to sign a form that it was
bitten by unknown dog therefore rabies threat then claimed from
insurance- then the FO gets 1000 rups to say it was attacked by a
wild animal - goverment compensation and then the surprisingly walking
dead animal gets sold to the slaughter house. Goats are also kept
for Bakri Id even tho when hit by a car or bike was almost a relation
of the family?!
Come on people - the basic rule of any NGO is TREAT OTHERS AS YOU
WISH TO BE TREATED. This tells us alot of the readers who want to
kill all that are nuisances.
And as a HUMAN BEING very embarrassing. I almost dread to ask the
question - was your mother slapped for letting you be born?

All animals are used in a commercial manner and the killing of stray
dogs was a very lucrative commercial venture for Municipality Health
Officers. They made money on advertising for tenders, made money on
the tenders and the killers STILL skin dogs ALIVE for black
magic, fashion, and ofcourse to mix with mutton to make more money.
Cats are mixed or sold as chicken to quite a few hotels. DO
YOU KNOW WHAT BIRYANI YOU ARE EATING? Why do you think that Municipalities
are reluctant to cough up monies for sterilization?
It is the same as beating and abusing children in schools - we have
always abused animals, women & children - In the last 20 years
, a minute amount of time in civilization we have decided that the
way we were brought up could have been wrong as we haven't produced
responsible and caring citizens - so you people with a killing streak
- try it our way and if the dogs disturb you cough up the same amount
as you do for your pleasures monthly and we NGO's will gladly take
care of the 'disturbances".
I, personally wonder if your readers wife or mum would pay to have Kala
Life is so terribly short can't we spend it on exchanging info, learning
and meeting sensible and caring people?
