Dog & Monkeys
Monkeys whether they have been a part of the city and grown in numbers or have strayed from the adjoining forest areas continue to be wild and are invaders by nature. The very first attraction for the simians is knowledge of the fact that a place can offer them food. Food left in the open, offered intentionally by people for religious reasons or as a duty towards God's creation etc are various ways which even if done once are good enough to have the Monkey's stay on in the area forever. and become vicious if denied their right to access to food. This in turn leads to a growth in the subsequent conflicts. I have personally seen Government officials feeding monkeys in the North Block and South Block areas in Delhi therefore it is not surprising that Government itself is not being able to to anything as far as monkey menace is concerned. Even some of the members in the delhi state animal welfare board engage in this unhealthy practice of feeding monkeys close to residential areas. Therefore a more serious intervention is needed on part of the Govt.
On the Other hand Dogs are more predictable in their behavior and with some co-operation from the Local vets and Dog lovers, their population can be controlled as well as the unfortunate instances of dog bites can be prevented to a large extent with some engagements of the local communities. more
