Stray animals pose a physical and an environmental threat to people and their surroundings. They become feral, violent and aggressive on the streets posing a threat to commuters.
They present a health risk to humans. If a stray dog dies on the street it could pose a health hazard and foul stench remains till the caracas is removed.
Unfortunately, these stray animals continue to haunt the city roads, as civic authorities have failed to take steps to curb the menace.
It is a common sight to see packs of stray dogs lurking in the street corners, public parks and markets. On Greater Kailash road, one can spot a huge number of stray dogs roaming freely, feasting on garbage and chasing residents. No one is there to look into the matter. These stray animals can easily be spotted resting in the parks and it seems as if these parks are there only for these stray animals and there is no space for common masses.
Local Rehari Walas often complaint about the inconvenience being faced by them due to these stray animals. Customers find it hard to buy things and carry them safely as these animals chase them.
“Stray dogs, cows chase us during the day time when we are waiting for our school vans. At least 10 to 15 dogs can be spotted in this area roaming freely”, a school student said..
The burgeoning stray animal population has also led to a surge in the number of accidents involving two-wheelers. It is very difficult to drive a two-wheeler in the area as the stray animals use to rove there. You can’t even imagine from where they come in front of your vehicle and pose a threat to the life of the driver.
It is really sad that people are suffering and the concerned authorities are just watching the whole scene as a mute
