Bangalore, India street dogs in vanStop Massacre Of Street Dogs In Bangalore, India

 

The city of Bangalore in India has begun a campaign to eradicate stray dogs, or "street dogs," through "culling," i.e. killing. City officials have decided to do away with 50% of the street dogs in Bangalore since they are considered a "menace" to the human population. The other half is going to be dumped in an isolated area away from humans.

 

While large numbers of stray dogs can pose a human health risk and increase animal suffering, mass slaughter is not the answer. Animal birth control experts and In Defense of Animals-India are encouraging city officials to begin a sterilization campaign, which has successfully and humanely made many areas of India including much of Mumbai "stray dog-free." Click here to send an e-mail to city officials. Urge them to handle the situation with kindness and compassion.
