The Malayalam newspapers, for last two days, report that people cannot walk or ride in bikes in Thriuvananthapuram city in Kerala. Stray dogs attack in packs any one on the streets. Two years ago, stray dogs tore a one-year old baby girl into pieces , at Vizhinjam, not so far away from the State capital. Don't feel sad or angry or disgusted -- we can afford to lose one from 1.2 billion population. The right of a stray dog is more precious to us than the life of a little human being. I don’t understand why these restrictions on killing of stray dogs? Why can't a District Collector initiate actions against this 'public nuisance' under Cr.PC?
|Dont do any thing against this street dog; it has a right to live|
|society plays their role|
|Look who were all there in the Court for stray dogs|
Dont form an opinion that I hate dogs. I too have three dogs at my home and they are our dear dear pets. But I keep them in the confines of my home, without allowing them to create any trouble to anyone.I let lose them to the street then I cannot protest if someone kills them, when they bite. Dog is one of man's most loyal friend, no doubt - at our homes, not on the streets.

Tail piece: There is one lady, biggest advocate for the rights of stray dogs, who writes regularly about the virtues of being a vegetarian. I was recently in South Korea and saw the Koreans eat almost all animals/birds/sea-food, they find on earth. They appeared to be lean and very healthy than any average Indian. Korea’s health indicators are at par with those of developed nations. And also believe me, there is more pesticide in the vegetables than in meat (which is also not safe), as found in the studies conducted by the Kerala Agricultural University recently,. The University found traces of 12 pesticides, including those of malathion, in our ordinary ‘curry vep’. Vegetarians are also not safe in this country.
