Kerala Is Defying Both Logic And Law By Culling Stray Dogs

So here we go again. An elderly lady was tragically mauled to death by a pack of stray dogs, and the Kerala state government has decided to take the easy way out and do a mass culling of stray dogs, just like last year. Animal lovers and welfare groups are trying their best to advocate the right to life of these dogs, again just like last year. Those who support the state government's decision emphasize that stray dogs are a continual menace to society, just like last year.

Why We're Eradicating The Disease, Not The Dogs Around Corbett Tiger Reserve

To help address the possibility of the outbreak of disease, HSI/India has proposed a Mass Dog Vaccination program in the area to vaccinate the dogs and identify any that may be infected. Previously, MDV programs have been carried out in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and other national parks around the world. The MDV program is a proven humane solution that can help maintain the delicate balance between the habitat of the wild and human settlements with dogs.
