Dog and Monkey Menace in Delhi NCR.....
Would any member know what actually and effectively is being done by the authorities in command about the dog and monkey menace in Delhi and NCR?
Today's Times of India carries yet another sad story of a 70 year old gentleman who had to jump down from rooftop after having been attacked by monkeys. more
To my knowledge it is Municipal Corporation's responsibility to remove stray dogs and monkeys. Corporations act the same way whether it is Delhi, Gurgaon or Faridabad. There is no will power at administrative level. more
I wonder whether any member has contacts with media. Appears like that would be the source to really help create a stir and get the authorities attend to this menace. Experience proves that nothing effective is done without creating "noticeable situations". more
Monkeys are wild animals and come under schedule 111 of the wild life act of the country thus cannot be handled or captured by one except government authorities . The flaw in the government policy is that they have been made the responsibility of the civic authorities as they have been clubbed with stray dogs .Monkeys must be the responsibility of the forest department as they would be better equipped to manage them . On asking the government was recommended to make a monkey sanctuary and was given clear cut instructions on how / when to trap , transport , neuter a required number and let them lead a natural life . The sanctuary was made but defective and non monkey friendly . Moneys were caught but by wrong methods leading to breaking of their groups , spreading out and becoming more aggressive . I have a feeling that now monkeys are being used for biomedical research by many MNC's within the country . As this has not been declared , the government wants this issue to be cloudy . If only it was transparent it would be streamlined also . The courts should not question the civic authorities but the forest department and CPCSEA _ Committee for the purpose of controling and supervising experiments on animals in the country. Together they can give a picture of what is happening to monkeys and why are they every where and so aggressive. more
Yes There was a news item i TOI a few days back that Kerala High Court has made a decision and doing something about it. Our Mr. Kejriwal and Mr. A. Yadav have no time for this except other politics. more
Absolutely nothing is happening. A few days back I read in the papers that SC had taken note of the menace and had directed MCDs to file a reply as to what they plan to do. No further information. Someone in SC can find out and report for our benefit. more
