The Supreme Court has spoken out against the indiscriminate slaughter of stray dogs. No authority has the power to issue directions for blanket culling, and any cull must be in accordance with law, it was said on Friday. Judges made it clear that only ‘rabies afflicted, incurably ill or mortally wounded dogs’ can be culled, according to the Animal Birth Control Rules formulated under the 1960 Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Campaign groups lashed out at vigilante groups in Kerala who have promoted dog culls Campaign groups lashed out at vigilante groups in Kerala who have promoted dog culls Petitioner Sabu Stephen of Kerala, who favours the elimination of dogs, accused the apex court of giving too much importance to strays. But Justice Dipak Misra told him: ‘When did this court say dogs have bigger fundamental rights than human beings? Who said that? But culling should only be carried out in accordance with law.’ Regarding troublesome dogs, the Act states that on receiving a complaint animal welfare board activities should take them away and sterilise them. The Supreme Court has dismissed calls for all street dogs across the country to be killed Though the comments were referring to the stray dog menace in Kerala, there are implications in Delhi with nearly three lakh stray dogs amidst calls for their elimination. Senior lawyer Dushyant Dave, who is assisting the court as amicus curiae, said that he felt lakhs of strays in Delhi are an eyesore and urgent measures should be implemented to remove them from the streets. On January 17 the court expressed shock at a call for every stray dog in the country to be exterminated. Street dogs are commonplace in Kerala – here, they can be seen sunbathing alongside tourists at Varkala beach It was said that strays too have a right to live, and there cannot be any blanket order for culling. ‘Look, there cannot be any such blanket order. Though culling of stray dogs is permissible, there has to be a balance and a proper method,’ the bench observed. Lashing out at vigilante groups in Kerala indulging in the culling of dogs and also encouraging the act, the court had recently asked the government to take strict action against them including lodging criminal cases. Anti stray-dog activist, José Maveli says growing numbers of the animals are putting people in danger and promoting the spread of disease, but welfare charities have condemned the culls Anti stray-dog activist, José Maveli says growing numbers of the animals are putting people in danger and promoting the spread of disease, but welfare charities have condemned the culls The bench had also banned imparting training to children or distribution of subsidised air guns to kill strays or publicly propagate that there is war against them. The Supreme Court bench has clubbed petitions filed by dog lovers and the Animal Welfare Board of India challenging the orders of Kerala (2006) Bombay (2009) and Karnataka (2013) allowing local authorities to cull stray dogs. On March 10 last year, the court had ordered every state to sterilise and vaccinate all stray dogs in a bid to control their population and spread of rabies. The court is reviewing rules which allowed municipal commissioners in most states to order killing of troublesome stray dogs. Justice Misra had said that the court’s task would be to end the ‘anomaly and incongruity’ between different central and state rules on the issue of stray dog culling.
