Stray dogs 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.
The biggest environmental hazard is that they are not vaccinated, so they present a health risk to humans. If a stray dog dies on the street their remains could also present a health hazard and I do not think there is a need to mention the foul stench that covers the whole area.
Unfortunately, these stray dogs continue to haunt the city roads, as civic authorities have failed to take steps to curb the menace.
Dogs are a man’s best friend. But man’s best friend can turn out to be his worst nightmare when stray dogs chase him. Taking a pet dog for a walk in Talab Tillo area has become too risky.
It is a common sight to see packs of stray dogs lurking in the street corners, public parks and markets. On Talab Tillo roads 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.
School going children are the worst affected as they are the soft target for these stray dogs. Many cases of dog bites too have been reported but the authorities still are asleep and have done nothing to curb the menace.
The burgeoning stray dog population has also led to a surge in the number of accidents involving two-wheelers. The incidence of dog bites is increasing by the day, according to residents.
It is very difficult to drive a two-wheeler in our area as the stray dogs in our street chase the 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 spectator.
