The increasing number of stray dogs is a matter of great concern. The stray
dog menace across Goa is now beyond control. We have the stray dog population
multiplying in every nook and corner of Goa. Every road in our cities and
every corner of the villages are infested with stray dogs. The situation is
very alarming and disturbing. Over the years crores have been spent also on
the stray dog menace but the situation is just getting shoddier. The so
called sterilisation programme is just not working. Sterilization alone can
never be the only solution to this grave and alarming crisis of stray dogs.

Animal welfare organizations have been making tall claims about their
successes in controlling the stray dog population. However, the general
public remains unimpressed as the stray dog population grows relentlessly.

The anguish and distress faced by a victim of a dog bite is only to be
experienced or seen. Not long ago a toddler at Ribandar lost both eyes
after being attacked by a stray dog. Pet animals may be an asset to the
society. It is also true that animals are required to be protected from
unnecessary pain and suffering. However, when it comes to choosing between
the sufferings of human beings due to a dog bite, obviously the weightage
will have to be given to the suffering of humans. There is a need and
necessity to consider the seriousness of the stray dog menace in a very
dispassionate manner not being influenced by any emotional issues.
