It hasn’t been long that insanity struck a Kerala Political Party, who thought the best solution to get back at stray dogs is to kill them. We covered the incident where in Kerala the political leader of a particular
, tied them to a pole and marched on roads of Kerala. The photographs of the incident have been doing rounds on the social media for a couple of weeks now. Seeing the evidence, Supreme Court has demanded the State Government of Kerala to file an explanation within three weeks.

The SC has also asked the details of the actions that have been taken against the wrongdoers. U.U. Lalit and Dipak Misra along with a bench of Justices decided to keep mum when enquired about the decisions taken. However, they mentioned that the Chief Secretary shall also submit an affidavit with the explanation to be given by State Government.

The bench as of now has provided the State Government a time of six weeks to file their response on the module comprising of the aspects of “Implementation Framework for street dog population management, rabies eradication and reducing man-dog conflict”, which was put forward by the Animal Welfare Board of India.
On September 14th, 2016, the court had mentioned clearly that showing compassion to the stray dogs is completely alright, however, they can’t let the stray dogs become a menace to the society.
But again, killing isn’t a solution. This won't help in curbing the population of strays, instead, will question your sense of sanity. We hope Supreme Court takes the right decision and punish those who deserve it.
