Mangaluru: MCC urges domestic dog owners to get licence


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Nov 28: Stray dog menace has increased considerably in all the 60 wards of the Mangaluru City Corporation (MCC). Many have got bitten by these dogs. This will also cause rabies.

In order to prevent these incidents, the MCC has asked domestic dog owners to get licence from the city corporation.

In a publication MCC commissioner said, “Citizens should take application for licence from MCC for their domestic dogs. They need to provide vaccination record of the dog, Aadhar card of owner, NOC from neighbours and two photographs of the dog.

“The MCC will take stringent action on the owners of domestic dogs if they are found to allow their dogs to roam in streets and also if the dogs are found to cause inconvenience to public,” stated the publication from the commissioner.

    This is the most foolish thing I have heard . In big metropolitan cities like Mumbai where population is soaring there is no such rule. Is it a joke.? Keeping a dog at home is not everybody s cup of tea. Is the corporation providing food and shelter to stray dogs? Pet owners shud agree to this only if corporation provided them with monthly maintenance for looking after dogs. And before passing any rule we want to see dog shelters run by the corporation in all parts of the city. Further taking no objection letter from the neighbours is utter nonsense. Are neibours going to provide food for our dogs ?? Corporation shud immediately take back their decision start a plan for dog shelters in all the wards.

    NOC from neighbors who are themselves indulging in illegal activities with active support of employees of MCC? It's too much of a joke! Moreover this law is not enforceable. Reason: Dogs also have equal rights to life and living. If these kind of crude jokes are thrwated on private citizen owning dogs who areuch more faithful to humans than MCC corruption filled people who Only fit in to warmtheir seats and hands it will be only apt to challenge such nonsical rules in court of law and surely MCC official will be made to pay for harming innocent animals under Animals rights act. Cruelty against animala by insensitive MCC and ruthless people is highly condemned

    Seems the MCC and its commissioner are pretty stupid to ask for NOC from neigbours. One can understand vaccination certificate. More importantly they should give a discount if the dog is sterilised/spayed! Get Real MCC!

    There must be a registered number plate like vehicle to the dog in their neck showing the mobile no. of the owner of dog. 3rd party insurance for dogs is a must. Dog owner must be financially sound to pay compensation to the party against dog attack. Stray dogs and un-licenced dogs to be shot immediately

    Here in Mlore, dog owners take their dogs 🐕 for walk in the mornings and use the footpaths and roads as public loos for their dogs..When people own dogs, they should take the responsibility for their dogs shit like in the West or train them to use their home loos. It's disgusting 🫣 to get the stench and mess during one's morning walk The owners should be heavily fined. Why keep pets if you can't take the responsibility and create a mess and nuisance for the rest of the public. Why isn't the Swach Bharath norms not applicable to the dog owners ? I hope the MCC AUTHORITIES make note of this too.

    There are several stray dogs in industrial areas. A pack of 6 to 7 dogs in one are, such several packs exist in this area. I have never heard these dogs attack anyone. They are very friendly and people love to feed them. They guard their area in the night. Yes sometimes they do bark at strangers with bags otherwise they don't create any problems

    Whats the logic for this licence First of all home pet dogs don't attack people randomly they are the street dogs and that too only if provoked or threatened or teased . So what about the licences for strays. This is a joke. Now neighbours who gave personal issues will take badla and NOC wow what. A requirement. Next will be PAN card for dogs.

    Speaking of stray dogs, one can find hundreds of them roaming on the streets of Mangalore all over. If you take a walk early in the morning, you’ll find hundreds of them, some of them ready to pounce on you. Since I am a regular walker on the same stretch of road, they are used to me and they don’t pay any attention to me. There are some kind persons who carry biscuits in their pocket while going for a walk and throw them at the dogs along the way, thereby increasing the stray dog menace. I am particularly intrigued by a lady who comes every morning before 5:00 a.m. to a certain spot with home cooked food and serves them to the stray dogs with so much devotion. I suspect some Thippa Joisa must have told her that one of her departed close relatives is coming there every day in his/her new reincarnation as a stray dog, and this lady must be doing her filial duty towards her dear departed relative. What plans does the Municipal Corporation have for such cases? Who has to buy a license for such dogs?

    There is a house in Padavu ward bikarnakatte which has more than 10 dogs, the house is full of dogs, apparently the lady has high political connections which is causing neighbors to suffer, not just the dogs inside the home, there are street aggressive dogs in front of her house, all the dogs create nuisance and as there is water canal in front of the house bike riders are under tremendous pressure to avoid the dogs and also maintain balance as to not fall in drain, it is mind boggling to imagine such a state of affairs in the residential areas in Mangalore

    This is a welcome step but must be implemented without partiality... Circumventing the regulations is the most commonly ignored phenomenon when it comes to an influential dog owner... Many people get a wicked thrill by watching people being troubled by their pet dogs... They often to tend to call back the dog a bit too late... Any bite to the passerby public must follow hefty fines, medico psychological compensation to the victim and warning system... Greater danger is from stray dogs and measures must be undertaken to feed them, take care of the old n sick ones and regular vaccination/sterilization to prevent proliferation...

    How does obtaining licence by the owners prevent their dogs from biting people? There are more serious problems in the city. Instead of attending on them and finding a solution, the MCC is doing this kind of stupid things. In Ward No. 50 (Alape South), near the railway underpass the manhole is overflowing with sewage since more than a week. Everyday thousands of people pass through this spot and also wait for bus. However, the Corporator seems to be totally ignorant of this health hazard. Some civil work is going on but nobody knows what is its use and what will be its oucome. Interestingly, the sewage treatment plant at Bajal/Jalligudda is not functioning and yet people have given connection to the sewage line. When I asked the Corporator Shobha Poojary about the functioning of the sewage treatment plant and connecting our domestic sewage line to the main line she said the plant works and connection can be given.

    In order to prevent these incidents, the MCC has asked domestic dog owners to get a licence from the city corporation. What's the connection between domestic dog owners and stray dogs? 1st control stray dogs then bring this type of law. By the way, all who own dog has vaccinated their pets ?
