Stray Dogs Stray Dogs – Menace

I am a resident of Omaxe Heights, Sector-86, Faridabad. I am and other residents are facing issue due to menace of stray dogs in the society and the so-called NGOs running from Omaxe for these dogs merely for money.

I understand that this society is for both Human and Animals and we all have to live in co-existence but will this be possible at the cost of Human Rights? I love dogs and request every NGOs in our society/ people who feed these dogs to take these dogs in their home and keep it with them. By this, people will have more time with their love.

Stray dog menace (NHRC observation) – The Commission has observed that "while the measure of sterilization may help contain the increase in the dog population, it does not save or shield people from the bites of existing dogs. It looks like a ‘Human Rights’ versus ‘Animal Rights’ battle. This is not a problem of Delhi alone. The Commission has come across similar incidents in several other parts of the country. The situation assumes alarming proportions when one links the stray dogs with their contribution to Rabies disease."

These dogs are nowadays have started threatening kids and elderly people, there are number of cases available (videos) and kids can’t play, elderly people can’t take walk and it is really quite dangerous to go for walk in night times. With the busy schedule we have, we don’t have time to take care of our health and we have very few hours to utilize for walk that too in night hours. Kids nowadays are forced to remain in home and play with mobile/ watch TV as they can’t go outside due to these dogs. I would not like kids/ elderly people with dogs bite and all wounds on their body. We have seen number of videos where kids have died due to excessive bleeding.

I understand sterilization or rabies injection but it is not the ultimate solution. How these options safeguard people in the society/ (ies). Dogs will anyhow threaten them if Municipal Corporation/ NGO will sterilize/ vaccinate them. And also, as per Animal Right, how sterilization is a good option, it is a also a method to kill/ play with natural process. If we are so much in love, how people will love these dogs getting vaccinated to stop further rise in population. After analyzing these issues, we only left with two options (a) Either dog lovers/ NGO should keep these dogs in their home/ flat and take full care (b) state/ Municipal Corporation should dislocate these dogs to some dedicated areas where these dogs can live their life safely without harming humans.

The concept of co-existence of Human and Animal is great but in real-life it will not work until govt. will take serious steps. I love these dogs but love more the Humans (kids/ elderly) who are being targeted.

There must be some specific reason when Supreme Court had to release order for safeguarding these dogs but now situation is now 360 Degree. Now SC / government need to take steps to safeguard humans. NHRC can work to protect and file petition for terrorists but can’t take any action against these dogs. This is really becoming challenge.
