Dog-culling movement started in Karachi

KARACHI: The District Municipal Corporations (DMC) launched a dog-culling campaign in the neighborhoods of the port city on Wednesday following the recent rabies-related deaths.

The campaign, initiated by Pehlwan Goth and Gulshan-e-Iqbal, is now being spent on other metropolitan areas, including Gulistan-e-Johar, Lines Area, and Khudadad Colony, where dozens of canines were killed by poison administration, said Moid Anwar, District East’s chairman.

Multiple stray dogs were poisoned to death in Lines Area and Khudadad Colony, Anwar noted, vowing further that all “mad dogs” would be put to death in District East.

Moid Anver added that complaints about dog bites “compelled” them to start the campaign.

The unchecked increase in the number of stray dogs and the shortage of anti-rabies vaccine (ARV) led to a rise in the number of deaths caused by the virus.
