Kerala cabinet is quite firm about killing the “dangerous” stray dogs; despite of numerous protests and resistance coming from Animal Welfare Board of India. as per the Kerala cabinet, they see nothing wrong in killing violent dogs. This entire situation came up when a 65-year old woman was attacked by a pack of stray dogs at Pulluvila. The government is giving a compensation of Rs. 5 lakh to her family.

There was another incident where a lady named Daisy was injured when attacked by dogs. The government has sanctioned a compensation of Rs. 50000 and also bearing her hospital expenses.
As per K T Jaleel, the local administration minister, the government will not change its decision and will go ahead with the plan. It will order the local bodies to kill dangerous dogs in their respective locality. He also mentioned by saying that there isn’t any legal threat to the decision.
Numerous animal welfare forums and boards are strictly against the decision. People in the area say that this is first of its kind incident. There have been minor attacks by dogs, but this kind of dreadful event hasn’t taken place in the past.
We say every life is precious, be it of a human or a dog. Killing innocent voiceless dogs isn’t a sensible solution. We hope Kerala government find another way to sort this problem.
