Mangaluru: Menace of street dogs causes worry of rabies in Ullal


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Oct 25: Street dogs have become a nuisance in Ullal and surrounding areas. A man who saw that a dog with wounds all over its body was biting other dogs near MUDA site between Someshwar and Ullal, had complained to the municipality, duly expressing worry about the possibility of the spread of rabies in the region.

The number of street dogs is multiplying in Ullal, Someshwara, Kotekar and other places. Sterilization camp for dogs has been conducted only by Someshwar town municipality and nowhere else, the people say.

The people who saw that a dog full of wounds was biting other dogs, had hit it with a stick and informed Animal Care Trust, Shaktinagar. By the time the trust people came the dog had died. Therefore, the health of the dog could not be checked and the municipal commissioner was approached with a complaint, it is learnt. Mangalore Riaz, convener of Parisara Samrakshana Nagarikara Okkoota, asked the municipal commissioner through his written complaint that dogs with rabies virus in their bodies have been found in Ullal and Someshwara limits. He sought immediate action as the people are now worried also about the domestic dogs.

Trustee of Animal Care Trust, Suma R Nayak, said that dogs with symptoms of rabies are bought and kept for ten days in isolation wards. "If the dog dies within ten days, the viscera of the dog's brain is sent for viral testing. The Dog Rules are not followed in rural areas and local bodies are not setting aside grants for the street dog population control," she observed. She says that because of the increasing number of dogs, it would be hard to control if rabies begins to spread.

Dr Nagaraj, animal husbandry department official in Ullal, said that his department does not have any plans or schemes about canine control of street dogs. He opined that social service organizations and local administrations can join hands to hold rabies camps. Such camps also create awareness among the people, he stated.

    India in growing in Technology. Everyone should own one Electronic Dog Repellent. It is good if we can have Dog repellent ultrasonic waves in mobile phone. Ambani's should be contracted to produce this athma nirbhar device.

    MCC please come forward and provide shelter to the dogs. They are really increased in large nos. and will be in grpups. Big nuisance for the people who drive/ride. Really horrible situation. Who sterilises them ? Construct one house and shift the stray dogs there. Whoever wants to feed or give something, let them go and feed them. MCC should not allow people to feed the dogs on streets. Whoever comes on their way, with their bags walking, they jump and bark like anything. Why our MCC is not awakened ? If they die anywhere, MCC doesnt come near-by...Sterilise all the dogs once. Animals are innocent. They dont have reasoning power. People do have....So treat them systematically for the benefit of all.....

    Mass eradication is the only option left now. May be a painless poison will do. If some remains even after that, corporation should sterilize them.

    Surely we need to have at least a dozen people killed by rabies, before the government decides to take any action. Enjoy!

    You guyz are worried about rabbies.... This many pact of stray dogs can attack anybody... Why there is no control of such stray dogs.... Those who love them can take to their homes and look after them.... When they cause nuisance on roads then definitely action has to be taken before any life of human or cattle is lost.... Those who love and talk big of these stray dogs should open Dog Shelter similar to what they have about as Gau Shala.

    Its is very clear why Islam prohibits to consider dogs as pet animals except one who keeps it for guarding the fields or the herd.
