Noida residents insist for developing stray animal shelters
Noida: Residents of Noida on Friday wrote to Ritu Maheshwari, Chief Executive Officer of Noida Authority, demanding development of a stray animal shelter in the city.
They told that it is a rising concern and has been causing worry for one and all in the city as the incidents of dog bites are also increasing with growing population of stray animals.
Though, the authority claimed that they are being sterilised for controlling their growth but it seems not much effective as the population has gone up. It would be effective if the authority invites suggestions from various residents welfare association in the city to get rid of the problems.
AN Dhawan, chief patron of Janshakti Seva Samiti told that he had already shared the notification of Haryana town planning and copy of verdict by the High Court of Uttarakhand, which have made provision of developing stray animals shelters to do away with the problems.
He said, “Stray animals have become a huge problem for residents and senior citizens. It has been observed that they become more aggressive after undergoing sterilisation.”
“It would be in public interest if the authority invites suggestions from various social and residents welfare associations for finding a solution to the problem,” he said.
