HC dressing down for animal welfare NGOs

HC dressing down for animal welfare NGOs

The High Court of Karnataka on Thursday gave a dressing down to the animal welfare organisations during the hearing of a petition seeking to end stray dog menace in the City.

“If you want to see the dog menace, I invite you for a walk. Come to Cubbon Park with me. I will show you the situation,” Chief Justice

Vikramajit Singh said, reacting to the submission that dogs do not attack unless
provoked. The Court said the organisations never give a clear picture and the statistics they furnish were far from truth.

While mentioning the procedure to identify rabid dogs, the counsel for the NGOs said the dogs will be isolated after two veterinary doctors certify them as rabid.

“Two doctors to certify a dog? There are no doctors to attend human beings,” the Chief Justice reacted.

The Court directed the organisations to file an affidavit detailing the measures taken to check dog population in the City.
