Plan devised to kill stray dogs


KARACHI: Secretary Local Government Sindh Roshan Ali Shaikh has said that the Sindh government had formulated a plan to curb the growing population of stray dogs in the province.

There will be no stray dogs in Sindh after five to eight years, as a grand operation will be launched next week to vaccinate stray dogs, he said in a statement.

He said that a PC-1 would be presented to the technical committee on coming Monday. Shaikh said that the conventional method of killing dogs was also being carried out across the province.

But we cannot kill all the dogs. That is a cruel way. He said that Sindh was the first province to launch a modern technique to deal with the issue of stray dogs, and involvement of government officials in this project would be at the minimum level. Roshan Ali Shaikh said that Public awareness is one of the major components of the plan. We need to understand our attitude towards animals. They react badly when annoyed, he said.
