Stop Culling of Stray Dogs in Kerala, India.

Dogs are strangled, poisoned and beaten to death every day in Kerala, India!!! It is the most literate state in India and is famous for tourism and welcoming people.

There have been a few isolated incidents in the last 1 year, where 2 humans were attacked by strays and they died from wounds.

But these incidents have led to mass culling and indiscriminate killing of all stray dogs in the most inhumane way and continues daily. See media links. It is heart wrenching!

Dog corpses piled up by the road, paraded by politicians and used as an opportunity to appear on media.

This petition is to urge the government to stop this brutal killing of dogs and set up a system which focuses on neutering and getting these animals a home. We care about the human casualties and agree that dangerous dogs need to be destroyed but killing every dog on the street is wrong and needs to stop.

Help us get this petition to reach the Kerala government and international animal rights organisations. We need millions of signatures from folks who still has a heart!

We want Kerala to be welcoming and famous for tourism, not for animal cruelty like it is today!
