Commenting on the report of a dog collected by Colombo Municipal Council (CMC) for sterilisation being found to have been injured, Colombo Mayor Rosy Senanayake said she had instructed the Municipal Commissioner to conduct a full and impartial inquiry and recommend action to prevent any repetition.

She said she was deeply concerned about the report where the dog was found with a damaged leg while other dogs have also been reported to have various injuries..The mayor said all dogs taken by the CMC for purposes of having them sterilised and were later released to the areas they were taken from after the procedures and recuperation were complete.

She said she would appoint an officer from her office to report to her directly to oversee the sterilization programme and the functioning of the dog pound to ensure that no harm came to the dogs during this process.

 “I wish to reaffirm my commitment to finding an effective and lasting solution to this issue, especially being an animal lover myself,” she said.

    Well if you are a animal lover then u urself it someone u can rely on should have been there especially when u should know how certain people in CMC treat poor defenceless street dogs. These are innocent beings betrayed by worthless people in society and are struggling to survive everyday from insensitive undeveloped people. Please speak to some animal groups who actually care and do the RIGHT thing by treating them with care and love.
