By Rashmi Priya - Posted on May 2, 2012

After hot summers it is dogs which is troubling nagpurians. Almost thousands of people get bitten by dogs every month and canines menace is increasing in the city. It is raising alarm that in the coming months the trouble is going to increase and not decrease. They are present everywhere on city roads, near residential areas, market places etc.

Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) needs to implement Animal Birth Control (ABC) program to check growth of dog population in the city. Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) has directed NMC and State Animal Husbandry department to carry on the Animal Birth Control program. NMC has failed to implement the program due to lack of infrastructure and manpower.
