Justice for Dogs Allegedly Subjected to Inhumane Birth Control Practices

Target: Naveen Patnaik, Chief Minister of Orissa, India

Goal: Implement rigorous, humane oversight for animal birth control.

Allegations of grave mismanagement in animal birth control (ABC) programs across the Indian state of Orissa have surfaced, sparking outrage. The Orissa High Court recently addressed a writ petition on this matter, revealing the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) five-month halt in dog sterilization activities. This pause, stemming from alleged systemic failures, underscores a critical need for reform. Details of these alleged mismanagements, reportedly involving cruelty and inefficiency, have deeply concerned citizens and animal rights advocates alike.

In this context, allegations suggest a lack of proper monitoring and implementation in ABC procedures. Reportedly, this led to unnecessary suffering for animals and a significant increase in dog bite cases in the city. A statement by Capital Hospital officials highlights a distressing spike in such incidents, from less than 40 to about 180 daily. This disturbing rise, coupled with the alleged mismanagement of sterilization processes, calls for immediate, effective, and humane action.

The necessity for change is clear. Appropriate, humane management of ABC programs is not just a matter of animal welfare but public safety and ethical responsibility. Ensure the well-being of animals and the safety of the community.


Dear Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik,

Recent revelations about alleged mismanagement in the animal birth control programs in your state have raised serious concerns. This letter, representing the voices of concerned citizens and animal welfare advocates, seeks immediate action. The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation’s recent halt in dog sterilization, due to these allegations, highlights an urgent need for reform in these practices.

Reportedly, the lack of effective monitoring and humane practices in ABC programs has not only caused distress to animals but also led to an alarming increase in dog bite cases. This situation, as evidenced by statements from Capital Hospital, signifies a failure to protect both animals and citizens. It is alleged that these practices fall short of ethical standards, necessitating prompt and decisive action.

Therefore, we urge you to take immediate steps to ensure humane, effective, and compassionate oversight of the ABC programs in Orissa. Establish stringent guidelines, ensure proper monitoring, and involve animal welfare experts to oversee these processes. The well-being of animals and the safety of the community depend on your leadership and prompt action in this matter.
