Inhumane and brutal treatment of strays must end.

This petition had 1,130 supporters

It flies in the face of our Constitutional duty under Article 51A (g), which enjoins us to have compassion for all living beings and not just humans, yet stray killing seems to be palatable in our society now. As per Indian law, street dogs cannot be beaten, killed or driven away or displaced or dislocated, they can only be sterilized in the manner envisaged in the The Animal Birth Control (Dogs) Rules, 2001 enacted under the Indian Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1960 (A Central Act), vaccinated, and then returned back to their original locations.

This petition has been started in the wake of second brutal killing of stray dogs inside the campus of D.T.U. The animal mentioned was charged with attacking students, even if so is the case, the legal way of dealing with street dogs is to get them vaccinated and sterilized under Animal Birth Control Programme (ABC).

We seek to talk with concerned people and educate the security guards about proper way to deal with these situations. I urge you to join our quest and stand for the rights of these animals. Please sign this petition and share with as many people as you can so we can make sure this inhumane treatment is put to an end. We seek to get these dogs vaccinated against rabies and also get them neutered if possible so such a case does not present itself in the future. 

Please Note- This fight is not against the security guards. They did what they had to do to protect the students from the rabid dog. There is no personal vendetta against the dogs. We need to tackle this problem by changing mindsets and educating people about the proper ways.
