Punish Mob Accused of Savagely Killing 50 Stray Dogs

Target: Prakash Javadekar, Minister of Environment, Forests and Climate Change, India

Goal: Punish men who allegedly strangled and bludgeoned 50 stray dogs before burying them in a mass grave.

Over 50 stray dogs were allegedly killed by a five-man mob, say animal rights activists in India. The five men were allegedly hired by management at the Velankanni Church, a popular tourist destination in Tamil Nadu, India, to catch and kill all stray dogs within a one kilometer radius. The dogs were clubbed to death or hanged with nylon ropes before being buried in a mass grave.

Stray dogs are very common in India and have been labeled as pests by both residents and tourists. The hungry and unhealthy dogs roam in packs and have been known to lash out at humans and their pets. Each year, approximately 20,000 human deaths occur due to rabies infections from stray dog bites. This number accounts for over one-third of rabies cases globally.

Though the dogs pose a threat to the health of humans, this is no excuse to kill them in such a brutal manner. The Indian government has introduced an aggressive spay and neuter program that includes the setup of 500 sterilization and vaccination centers across Tamil Nadu. Police in some cities have rescued animals off the streets and put them in training programs to become K-9 officers, while terminally ill dogs are euthanized in a more humane manner.

In order to protect the health of both dogs and humans, the Indian government should look to further decrease dog populations with humane measures, such as increased sanitation to remove the large amounts of trash that these stray dogs feed on. Sign the petition below to demand that that those responsible for the brutal killings of over 50 stray dogs are punished, and that the government work harder to prevent these acts in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Minister Javadekar,

Over 50 stray dogs were allegedly killed in the vicinity of Tamil Nadu’s Velankanni Church by a mob of 5 men. The dogs were strangled and bludgeoned to death before being thrown into a mass grave. This is only one of many recent attacks against the stray dog population.

In order to prevent further attacks against these stray dogs, the government must punish their attackers and do more to prevent canine aggression against humans. We, the undersigned, demand that the men are punished to the full extent of the law if found guilty, and that improved sanitation standards are implemented in order to further curb stray dog populations.

sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  4. I can tell you dogs are nusense in India no matter where you are there. Dogs sit in the middle of the road and will not budge even if you use your horn. they own the road. I have traved lot in India, by car .

    • If dogs are a problem, the owners should keep thm safely
      out of the road and danger from others, Have you no common sense either???

    • lorraina luente says:

      How can a poor dog be a nuisance? you are polluting the atmosphere by driving, the poor dogs are probably starving and in pain, why dont you get out of your car and help the dogs. The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated’ MAHATMA GANDHI

  5. What happened to the belief in India of karma and that ALL things are sacred? It seems the more western they get the more amoral.

    And as for a church sanctioning this brutality, well I’m just speechless.

  6. These damned killers must be gelded!

  7. They kill dogs today. They kill your wife and children. Go ahead and tolerate it until your family is dead too!

    Take care of your own social problems so the United States doesn’t step in and do it.

  8. The IGNORANCE of some foreign countries is astounding!! Their backward treatment of animals & in some case humans, is astounding. The lack of education and compassion is OBVIOUS. Perhaps BOYCOTTING these countries where it hurts most would
    encourage them to WISE-UP!!!

  9. So are all the men across the globe! India doesn’t even come in the first place for abuse against women, go do mber your research before ranting off! South Africa is Number One followed closely by USA and UK… sick and tired of media hype!

    Go educate yourself on the matter!

  10. The five men were allegedly hired by management at the Velankanni Church, a popular tourist destination in Tamil Nadu, India… A FUCKEN CHURCH NO DOUBT THEY WILL BE GOING TO HELL…These dogs are fucken hungry, and sick and its their fault…NO ITS MAN’s FAULT…SO TOTALLY Disgusted WITH THE HUMAN RACE..instead of fixing the problem they blugeoned them to death FUCKEN NICE ASSHOLES…..PROSECUTE THESE 5 MEN AND THE FUCKEN CHURCH PEOPLE TO THE FULLEST EXTENT

  11. Barbara Chichester says:

    You shouldn’t call your house of worship a church or call yourself a minister. God and Jesus would never condone ruthless killing of dogs.

    Maybe you can change the name from church to unholy place of worship of evil.

  12. THIS IS THE PUNISHMENT THAT THESE EVIL VILE SICKENING IDIOTS NEED DONE TO THEM, IT SEEMS ONLY FAIR, LET THEM FEEL THEY WAY THESE DEAR DEAR ANIMALS DID. LOW LIFE SCUM. MAKE THEM PAY PLEASE.

  13. Such heinous evil actions done against totally helpless, innocent poor Animals are a CRIME against the Planet earths living beings. These Barbaric scum bags must be Punished to the fullest extent. If not then the criminals are going to take over your country all over. STOP this barbarians to walk free on streets again. Lock them in the hellish jail and throw the keys away for good. Don’t bother feeding them.

  14. THESE MEN ARE MONSTERS AND MUST BE TREATED AS SUCH. I HOPE THAT YOU ARE CAUGHT AND SEVERELY PUNISHED. THEY MUST MAKE EXAMPLE OF EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU MONSTERS. FIVE YEARS IN JAIL, HUGE FINES, BANNED FROM EVER HAVING OR BEING AROUND ANY ANIMAL AND GET PSYCHIATRIC HELP AS YOU ARE SUPER SICK MONSTERS.

    RIP ALL THE ANIMALS THAT WERE VICIOUSLY SLAUGHTERED BY THIS GROUP OF HORRIFIC MONSTERS AND MAY YOU RECEIVE JUSTICE FOR YOUR DEATHS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ATTENTION AUTHORITIES:
