Stray dog menace is getting out of control

Mohali: The stray dog menace continues to haunt several residential areas of the city, causing panic among the locals, particularly at night.
The menace of stray dogs has been haunting Mohali for a long, the streets are home to all strays and their population is growing unchecked by the concerned authorities.
Incidents of stray dogs attacking women, children or old people are common, many people have suffered stray dog bites and even several rabies deaths have been reported but nothing seems to have been done by the concerned authorities.
Strays dogs are creating a nuisance in residential areas as they appear in groups of 5 to 10 in the middle of the road, obstructing traffic and pedestrians.
The municipal Corporation has not taken up the sterilization drive for the past several months. In some places, the presence of dogs is increasing even during the daytime.
Residents appeal to the government to begin high-level monitoring of stray dogs and offer the best medical care to those attacked.
Residents added that some of the reasons for the rising stray dog population are poor management of waste, inadequate sterilisation of stray dogs and demanded legislation to control stray dogs for the safety of Human beings. Who cares?
