Dogs removed from BMICH premises to avoid disturbance

E-mail Print
Around 12 dogs have been removed from the BMICH premises and taken to the dog pound to avoid possible disturbances during the ongoing 58th Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference at the BMICH, CEO of the Blue Paw Trust Dr. Nalinika Obeysekere said.

The Blue Paw Trust, an organisation that promotes animal welfare claims the initial arrangement was for these dogs to be returned to the BMICH, once the conference concluded, as they have been occupying the premises for a while now.

However, the Daily Mirror learnt through an official at the S.W.R.D Bandaranaike Memorial Foundation that there was a rumour that the dogs were not going to be brought back. “These dogs have been vaccinated, sterilised and well taken care of by the Blue Paw Trust. We manage the population of dogs in public areas and ensure they are not a form of disturbance to neighbouring people,” explained Dr. Obeysekere.

According to Coordinator of the Dog Managed Zone at Blue Paw Trust Dr. D. Subasinghe, the Blue Paw Trust has signed an MoU with the BMICH to take care of the dogs at the premises. (SK)

Mervin would have been the ideal person to remove these dogs since he has good experience with rope by tying people to trees.

Oh no, leave them alone. Stray animals are third world countries trade mark. We must keep our identity.

Will the good Dr let us know how they "ensure they are not a form of disturbance to neighboring people,” Do they also collect the poop of these dogs daily so that those who visit the BMICH for evening functions do not trample it. I think Sri Lanka must be one of the few or only country where stray dogs are all over the city. How many times have we run over dog poop and carried it into our homes?

Can't we vaccinate the Colombo and greater Colombo thugs also to avoid possible disturbances likely to happen to our society?

If the animal welfare groups could establish with govt. to establish dog and cat welfare centers in isolated places similar to Elephant orphanage where people could volunteer to take care of them similar to some western countries.

It is great the caring doctor is taking care of the animals and worried about animal welfare..
What about the danger to human lives from possible dog bites.

Is there any thing you are prepared to do to save young children and also adults from the danger of mad dogs found on the streets not only in Colombo but also other cities in Lanka.

Dear Sonasli
Walk along the beach and you could collect tons of Human waste. Should we round up all those responsible and keep them locked up until all the day Tourists stop coming Sri Lanka.
