Protesting MCD Plans to Kill/Remove City Animals and seeking urgent intervention

This is to bring to your notice that in the wake of upcoming Commonwealth Games in the city, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is planning that stray dogs to be rounded-up across the city before Commonwealth Games and taken elsewhere. There are talks of removing stray dogs from their natural surroundings before the Games.

Municipal body capture stray dogs in the cruelest manner causing serious injuries to them in the process and either kill them or release them on the outskirts in the city. These dogs eventually die horrible deaths as they do not know how to fend for themselves in unfamiliar surroundings. This action is in gross violation of the Animal Birth Control (ABC) rules which only allows stray dogs to be removed for sterilisation, vaccination. Under ABC rules, the dogs should be returned where they were picked up from.

There is also news of barbaric and dastardly killing of 11 dogs in the Jal Sadan vicinity in Lajpat Nagar area.

This is to bring to your notice that in the wake of upcoming Commonwealth Games in the city, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is planning that stray dogs to be rounded-up across the city before Commonwealth Games and taken elsewhere. There are talks of removing stray dogs from their natural surroundings before the Games.

Municipal body capture stray dogs in the cruelest manner causing serious injuries to them in the process and either kill them or release them on the outskirts in the city. These dogs eventually die horrible deaths as they do not know how to fend for themselves in unfamiliar surroundings. This action is in gross violation of the Animal Birth Control (ABC) rules which only allows stray dogs to be removed for sterilisation, vaccination. Under ABC rules, the dogs should be returned where they were picked up from.

There is also news of barbaric and dastardly killing of 11 dogs in the Jal Sadan vicinity in Lajpat Nagar area.

We should take into account the rights of animals. We should not try to change the face of the city for an event that is taking place for only two weeks. The Constitution of India gives us the right to show compassion to animals.

We demand effective action against illegal slaughtering houses where animals are killed cruelly, strict implementation of livestock transport rules and prevention of atrocities on street animals.

We request you to order immediate probe into the Lajpat Nagar incident and also to ask MCD Commissioner to sop any further plans of killing/removing these animals in the name of Games.

Looking forward to your immediate response

Thanks

Yours Sincerely



All Members of Youth for Justice

And all concerned citizen of the city
