Stray dogs

Thiruvananthapuram: The dogs born on the streets during COVID lockdown times without human interaction have become very aggressive creating so much trouble in the State, say experts.

Experts from the Animal husbandry department and Veterinary Universities expressed this opinion during the high-level meeting convened by the Government to discuss a solution to the severe stray dog menace.

During COVID times, hundreds of stray dogs were born in different parts of the State and grew up feeding on the food thrown in open places.

The experts pointed out that the behaviour of creating territories and attacking those entering their particular territory is the most in these dogs.
