Begin a joint marketing campaign

That is astonishing that within the identify of animal safety, safeguarding animals appears to be overpowering the protection of people. One can witness pack of stray canines in each road of the tricity posing a hazard to passers-by. These strays are a possible visitors hazard. The administration is making lame excuses within the identify of animal safety or blaming neighbouring areas for the issue. Killing will not be the one resolution to eliminate stray dongs.

It needs to be joint duty

To deal with the issue of stray cattle it needs to be the joint duty of the tricity authotrities. One shouldn’t blame the opposite for cattle coming into cities from the neighbouring areas. If these creatures of God had some mind, then this downside wouldn’t have occurred. One of many options is that one can feed a stray animal on the similar time day by day and after three or 4 days it may be caught and despatched to some correct animal shed. Additionally, one should be sympathetic to those creatures in the identical approach as we deal with sufferers from the neighbouring states.

Have to discover a lasting resolution

Even because the Chandigarh Administration make tall claims of getting addressed the menace of stray cattle, it continues to hang-out commuters from throughout Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali.

Stray cattle, in addition to jeopardising lives of residents, find yourself hampering a clean move of the vehicular visitors, whereas the administration resorts to piecemeal measures to resolve the issue. What’s extra worrying is that many lives have been misplaced in raging assaults by these unsuspecting bovine neighbours turning rogues on the roads at instances. To be able to successfully examine the menace extra cattle kilos are required to be constructed. Periodic sterilisation drives might go an extended solution to examine their ever-burgeoning inhabitants.

extra gaushalas might help deal with situation

Regardless of assortment of big funds on account of cow cess, the MC authorities will not be in a position to make use of these to feed cattle at gaushalas. If correctly fed, these animals won’t be let free on roads to feed. These animals usually carry the move of visitors on busy roads to a standstill in addition to inflicting main street accidents. The state of affairs turns worse at evening when it turns into tough for drivers to identify stray animals. These animals, principally cows come from unlawful roadside dairies and cattle sheds. The answer lies in relocating dairies outdoors the cities. There’s a must construct big gaushalas at applicable areas.

Cash going into fallacious fingers

Regardless of many measures having been taken and far cash spent on gaushalas and cattle shelters, the menace of stray cattle on roads continues, endangering autos and lives of individuals.

Want to repair duty

Arrange extra cow shelters in villages

Stray cows are one of many causes behind accidents within the metropolis. When a cow stops giving milk its proprietor abandons it. The authorities ought to tie up with NGOs and the division involved and to arrange extra cow shelters the place individuals may give donations and meals. A month-to-month report needs to be printed in a single native newspaper and one state newspaper in regards to the information of cow shelters.

Downside spreading to extra areas

The menace has resurfaced in varied elements of the tricity. Meals leftovers and leaves dumped by eating places, marriage halls and roadside eateries have been the principle supply of meals for stray cattle roaming on roads. These hinder the free motion of visitors. Many accidents have been brought on by to those cattle on the principle roads of the tricity.

Recruit extra animal catchers

Lack of human lives is usually reported in accidents involving stray cattle and commuters. Strict measures are required to curb the motion of stray cattle throughout the tricity.

Bharat Bhushan Sharma, Chandigarh


Residents of the tricity are grappling with the issue of stray cattle. These stray cattle come from unauthorised roadside dairies and cattle sheds. These trigger visitors jams and deadly accidents. The menace isn’t taken significantly. The municipal authorities appear reluctant to include the issue and cattle catchers are afraid of catching strays. The license of an erring dairy or cattle shed needs to be cancelled in case their cattle are discovered on roads. The water and energy provide to unlawful dairies should be disconnected. Additionally, careless cattle house owners should be fined suitably. The MC ought to make use of robust cattle catchers, construct extra cattle sheds and make use of adequate workers to maintain these animals.

Dr Shruti Okay Chawla, Chandigarh

MCs should be penalised

When cows cease producing milk, their house owners abandon them, unmindful of what hazard these animals pose to humanity. Stray cattle will be noticed on all vital roads and markets. The authorities involved get up from their deep slumber solely after one thing untoward has occurred. Containing the issue will not be solely the duty of officers of civic our bodies but in addition cattle house owners. The erring individuals ought to all be penalised.
