Gurgaon Colony Dogged By Pet Lover, Files Police Case

15 Feb 2010 | by Anil @ DoggiesDude | Posted in: Wag News

The Gurgaon police booked a pet lover and resident of the up-market Rosewood City after a dog she feeds bit a domestic help on Saturday evening.

The residents claim a group of five to six dogs protected by Sonia Rogers, who is an air hostess, has bitten a number of domestic helps. The maids in turn have almost gone on a strike, they allege.

The affected residents said they were threatened by the associates of an animal welfare society when they objected to the menace of dogs.

But a People for Animal (PFA) associate said the dogs were tortured and provoked, forcing them to get aggressive in self-defence. “It is not a crime to feed the hungry and homeless dogs. Rogers does not own these dogs but feeds them only,” said Ambika Shukla of PFA.

“The police are biased against her. She was assaulted by a group of people who had entered her house on Friday. The people who assaulted her were not booked.”

This terrible ! Agreed that its not right for anybody to get bitten but instead to looking into the root of problem people get carried away by herd mentality .

I do hope that the doggies are safe !
I myself fed 3 strays on regular basis .

I wonder if people in the locality are aware of the territorial rights that Our law guarantees to the animals of the street.Once they know about the law and the animal lovers of the area ensure the implementation then the resistance from the supposed victims of the imaginary dog bites would scale down considerably as in most of the cases its the rhetoric that is more than the actual problem.Actually neighbours gang up to harass the animal lovers either due to some personal animosity or just to gain importance by being leader in a cause where they wish to steal the lime-light by targeting poor,helpless creatures who cannot even defend themselves against the false propoganda that labels them as biters.Yes,in case there is a particular animal that due to whatever reason(its mostly due to cruelty inflicted upon itself by the people of the area)has developed a bad temperament,then it must be removed from the area in the most humane manner by involving an animal welfare organisation that can take care of the animal's interest post the re-location.
