The Kandy Municipal Commissioner has turned down an order by a senior Police DIG to catch stray dogs in Kandy especially during the Esala Perahera.

Municipal Commissioner Chandana Tennakoon rejected the order made by senior Police DIG Gamini Navaratne to catch stray dogs in the city especially those who were on route of the Perahera stating that it was an impossible task. 

The police order was made after a woman who had come to watch the Perahera was bitten by a stray dog.

When contacted, Veterinary Surgeon of the Kandy Municipal Council Dr. S.R. Jaysinghe said that it was an impossible task, especially during Perahera to catch the stray dogs as there was no place to shelter these animals.

However he added that a majority of the dogs had been treated for anti rabies. (Daily Mirror online)

    Yep, most of them have been treated with anti-rabies, but not all!

    You would think that the DIG would have more important things to worry about than stray dogs...

    All over the Island there is an increase in stray dogs. Since Madam Chandrika Kumaratunge's government nothing has been done to eradicate this menace.

    I prefer dogs walking on the roads than humans.. :) Dogs are much more compassionate and loyal than ppl..

    Not only in Kandy: in Kelaniya too there is a pack of mad dogs running around the streets being led by a rabid dog!

    But there are some of the two-legged variety who need to be vaccinated.

    This utter lack of sensitivity, on the part of the KMC, to an issue cncerning the welfare of the people, should be condemned!
