Karnataka HC questions officials on action taken on animal birth control rules | bangalore

The Karnataka High Court on Monday questioned authorities on the steps they had taken to implement animal (dog) birth control rules and asked them to report to it. A divisional bench of Chief Justice Ritu Raj Awasthi and Justice Ashok S Kinagi was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by Ramesh L Naik, a solicitor.

The PIL focused on putting in place measures to prevent human-stray dog ​​conflicts. The petition highlighted two specific incidents involving stray dogs in Karnataka – one was a stray dog’s attack on a four-year-old girl at Athani taluk in Belagavi resulting in the child’s death, and the second was the case of Adi Narayana, the grandson of a politician-businessman, who allegedly knocked down a stray dog ​​on a sidewalk with his car.

The petition called for strict enforcement of Rules 6 and 7 of the Animal (Dog) Birth Control Rules 2001, which prescribe a methodology for street dog population management, rabies eradication and conflict prevention man-animal.

The petition argued that there were rules and laws to care and manage stray dogs and there were also Supreme Court judgments which issued guidelines apart from the guidelines issued by the Animal Welfare Board of India ( AWBI) in this regard. But the authorities were not enforcing them and regulating the lives and movements of street/stray dogs leading to the conflict.

Implementing the guidelines and rules would prevent cruelty to animals, the petition states. Naik had approached the authorities in this regard but had received no response requiring him to file the PIL.
