The issue of stray dogs is a matter that should be handled by the security forces and not Animal Welfare suggests the Chairman of the Southern Municipal.
After castrating nearly 100 dogs during their four-day campaign, Animal and Environment Welfare Society is currently in the second phase of their sterilizing campaign in a bid to address the issues of strays.
Hunting and sterilizing the mongrels is expensive with the castration of each dog amounting to BD 38, these are a few reasons why the task should be handed over the security forces according to the official.
The Chairman pointed out that some countries tend to poison stray dogs as they pose as a potential threat to the public.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Works, Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning is currently working on a shelter for strays which is scheduled to be ready in six months.
