Dog with Kill(Peahen Chick) and Peacock at Delhi

Almost all the News Dailies of today morning have carried out the story of a 18 month old child being killed by stray dogs in Bhopal ,capital of Madhya Pradesh (outside his house). There were other incidents in the social media such as Wild ASS and Blue Bull being chased by the stray dogs in their habitats.

Being a nature photographer I too have witnessed a number of times dogs chasing away the Peacock, National Bird of India, in the parks of Delhi. Sometimes even with the kill of the peachick or wings spread out just after the kill.

Dog Chasing Peacock at Delhi

Is it not the RIGHT time to take a call and start a campaign to deal with the STRAY DOG MENACE. Let the authorities (Municipal) of every town and taluka launch a drive to catch stray dogs and prevent them from unnecessary hunting or killing.

I remember during my school days in late sixties at Sainik School Balachari in Gujarat During the tea time before the games time, they used to shot down by the military staff.

Both the images from Delhi shot in 2014 and 2015.
