“No evidence was provided so far, if the dogs are all dead they could take pictures. No such pictures were provided. It started from a social media thread, the person who made the claims have not posted anything as proof,” a source from BSPCA said.

Animal welfare activist Tony Waters was one among those outraged by the rumoured killings of stray dogs. “Are we going to let this happen?  The university campus people killed all the dogs! Now, securitymen have been instructed to kill all the cats!!” he commented on his Facebook page.
