Nobody Can Destroy Stray Dogs: SC18 January, 2017, By Cross Town News
New Delhi, Jan 18: Supreme Court reacted as "Stray dogs has right to llive" while hearing a batch of petitions a bench of Justices Dipak Misra and R Banumathi observed that though culling of stray dogs was permissible but there has to be a balance and a proper method for this.
During the hearing, the bench said in Kerala, there were issues of human concern but for this all stray dogs cannot be killed. Stray dogs have to be taken to shelter home if there is no way out, they have to be culled and not killed. But there has to be a method for it, bench said.
The Supreme Court had earlier restrained vigilante groups in Kerala from imparting training to children, distributing airguns to the people at subsidised rates to kill stray dogs and publicly propagate that there was a war against canines in the state.(Inputs from agencies)
