Withdraw order to kill stray dogs: Animal Welfare Board tells state


The Board feels that the only solution to the ongoing issue is sterilization.

New Delhi: The Animal Welfare Board of India has come out against the state govt order to kill stray dogs and wanted the govt to withdraw the order. The Board feels that the only solution to the ongoing issue is sterilization. The chairman of the Animal Welfare Board has sent a notice to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan directly.

Sterilisation is the only scientific way to resolve the issue. The LSGs must be given direction to sterilize the dogs living in the area. The notice also states that the state must not go forward in its decision to kill dangerous dogs. The secretary of the Animal Welfare Board has also issued notice to the government regarding this.

The Board has pointed out a valid section from the Wild Animal Protection Act saying killing amounts to legal violation. The Board also brought to the attention of the govt that culling of rabid and dangerous dogs may result in normal dogs too being killed.
