Life has not been real good for stray dogs, because intentional animal cruelty keeps threatening the speechless creatures, day in and day out.
An FIR has been filed against five people after a video clip of a stray dog being thrashed by two men went viral on the internet.
Abhishek Tiwari, who claims to be a local BJP functionary and 4 others were booked by the Sector 49 police under IPC Section 506 (criminal intimidation) and Section 11 of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act based on the strict complaint by animal rights activist by the name of Kaveri Rana.
In the video which was shared by Kaveri, two people can be seen beating up a stray dog which is trapped inside a net.
Abhishek allegedly told Kaveri that the dog was thrashed badly as they wanted to completely expel it due to an increasing number of dog bites in the society.
She had claimed that, so far there has not been a single case of dog bite confirmed from the upscale society.
“These three dogs live in the basement as they are not allowed to be up in the society. Not allowing them to roam freely in society is also against the law. But capturing beating and throwing or killing is the worst one can do as a human being,” she added.
Kaveri had also alleged that after she fields the First Information Report, she has been receiving threatening calls from Abhishek.
She then claimed that ever since the FIR was lodged, the AOA is mounting too much pressure and threatening the dog feeders of the society.
Stray dogs don’t trouble you and do not ask you for anything in return but will remain loyal to you when you would just toss a crunchy biscuit at them. It is a proven fact that stray dogs collectively can give real-time protection to all the houses at night. With many more advantages, that they can offer to us, it is really disheartening to see such living creatures being poisoned by unknown people in the worst scene.
Earlier, Telangana came under fire for the mass murder of hundreds of stray dogs as the poor creatures were killed by poisoning and were dumped in a landfill in Siddipet district after which four Municipal employees were arrested.
In Telangana’s Nalgonda district in Telladevarapalli village, as many as 50 stray dogs were reportedly poisoned. As per IANS report, this shocking incident from Telangana came to view soon after the village sarpanch Papa Nayak ordered the poisoning of 50 dogs.
Despite the fact that the animal rights activists continue to fight for the welfare of animals, the stray dogs are being poisoned to death quite often, which is totally unacceptable by any means. This goes to show that something is really wrong in the cities across the country and the necessary action has to be taken in a bid to prevent the mass killing of dogs.
