Effective Solution for Stray Animals - All Inputs
Effective Handling of Stray Animals
1.The local municipalities should take steps to remove all stray canines and cattle from the roads
2.Sterilisation campaigns should be done so that their population does not increase
3.A fine should be imposed on people who leave their cattle on the roads
4.Animal shelters should be built in different areas
5.Municipalities should tie up with NGOs to train these stray animals
6.NGOs should be involved in working towards adoption of the stays
7.A municipal helpline should be started to report dangerous stray animals
8.A special team should also be established to act quickly on these complaints

11.Owners of cattle especially cows, horses must register ownership and the animals should have the registration locket, failing which the animals on the roads may be impounded
12.Relevant Government or NGO agencies should take the cows to villages and auction them off to recover costs or make profit

1.From the group,let us generate as many solutions as possible with the deadline of a week's time or say with in fortnight
2.Let us rate the best five solutions from the list.
3.Let us write methodology to execute these solutions.
4.And the most important,one who generates the solutions,must write the procedure ,how to implement the same,that is Kaizen way.
5.The Kaizen way-smallest possible solutions with minimum cost,and with maximum gain in shortest time possible.
To me ,the menace is due to lack of our planning system.Now that we are facing these issues,to address the same
a]Let there be ownership declared by the individuals who own catteles and animals.They are numbered,for identification.Give a time frame of ,say 7 days,-let each ward handle the location involved.Owners are given a badge.
b]The rest of the animals are taken to a common shelter,and being looked after,by NGOs
c]The veterinary Doctors take care of the animal health.
d] The applicable suggestions under serial numbers given above and many more ,would become implementable,then after more
Solution for this lies in making plans for shifting the cattle sheds to the outskirts of the town/city and maintain good pastures for the animals to graze at the time when town planning is done. The NGO under the Government whether Central or State should interact with these cattle owners to hand over the cattle to them for looking after and work out a regular income to these cattle owners. If possible create job opportunities for them in taking care of these animals.
This is possible only when a sincere attempt is made. The persons involved should be dedicated and devoted. Then a distant dream could be made a near possible happening.
