Hyderabad: At least 500 street dogs have been allegedly poisoned to death in Narsapur municipality of Medak. According to NGO People For Animals, the mass killing of street dogs was done over the last one week.
The incident came to light when a few videos related to the incident surfaced on WhatsApp and other social media platforms on Wednesday. The videos show carcasses of the street dogs being buried at a dump yard.
Speaking to Telangana Today, Paneeru Prithvi from People For Animals said: “As many as 500 street dogs have been poisoned to death this week alone. They could vaccinate or sterilise street dogs to bring down the population. Resorting to mass killing is very inhuman. After knowing about the incident through villagers in the mandal, we rushed to the spot.”
The NGO has lodged a complaint with the Narsapur police.
