Kashmir Stray Dogs Again

Another article here about the stray dog problem in the Kashmir valley which notes that we have to accept responsibility for creating the problem in the first place by providing the “food and harborage” that enables such a high density of dogs to survive.

The author then goes on to discuss the two possible solutions: the short-term culling approach or the generally more acceptable longer-term sterilization approach (“surgical neutralising of dogs”) that he favours.

However, as with several other articles I have come across, he fails to include the suggestion of any improved waste management in his long-term strategy. Failing to tackle the root cause will mean continual management is necessary, and this omission might make a cynical reader wonder if there is any vested interest involved in the writing.
