Several homeowners of pit bull canines in Delhi-NCR have been “abandoning” their pet for the reason that information of a girl being mauled by her canine in Uttar Pradesh capital Lucknow have surfaced.
At least 5 to 6 pit bulls had been left by their homeowners exterior an NGO named House of Stray Animals in Noida within the final two months, its founder Sanjay Mohapatra mentioned.
He said that they’ve obtained not less than 200 cellphone calls from pit bull homeowners from all throughout the nation, particularly after the Lucknow incident by which a pet American Pit bull Terrier attacked an 82-year-old girl, who had finally died of her accidents.
“People have been tying their dogs at the pillars and gates of our NGO in the midnights. We have received at least 200 phone calls from such owners who fear keeping their pitbulls at home,” he mentioned.
He mentioned leaving them on roads won’t clear up the issue, including that this breed must be “trained instead”.
“Abandoning a pit-bull on the streets will be even more dangerous. Why can’t the owners train these dogs? It’s because they do not see these pets as a responsibility, they see it as owning something fancy in the household,” he mentioned.
He mentioned his NGO have been conducting consciousness campaigns to make sure individuals don’t abandon them.
