Malayalam superstar Mohanlal on Wednesday raised his voice to deal with the stray dog menace. He has pitched in calling for the need to urgently resolve the issue.
He said, “I am someone who loves dogs. But the scenes at night will scare any dog lover. Around 30 to 40 dogs would be roaming around. They run behind vehicles at times. Imagine the condition of those who are walking or living on the street. Everyone is pushing Malayalis into this dangerous situation with the rule that dogs cannot be killed.
Meanwhile, animal right activists have written to HRD minister Smriti Irani protesting Bhopal Science Institute Registrar’s suggestion to the Kerala government that stray dogs be exported to countries like China.
