Why Stray Dogs Create Menace
As everyone knows dogs are best friends of Humans, Be it a stray or one of the PET of other breed. Most of these dogs always seek love and pamper from humans around, they want to be around like our friends.
Natural unrestricted process of reproduction in Dogs which is faster compared to humans brings in more puppies which creates need of more food around. The new skylines and other buildings and housing societies have restrictions for stray dogs, Unlike the homes just 2 decades before, Less building and more low lying houses and Chawls for whom Stray dogs were just part and parcel of life.
Except few dog lovers who feeds them regularly, No one cares about these beautiful and obedient species as the wasted food is directly thrown inside huge garbage canes which are inaccessible by stray who depends on Human wasted food to survive which was very common and still can be seen at village locations. If someone noticed, Dogs inside villages with low lying homes, Bungalows and Chawls with ample greenery around look more healthier then those around concrete building area.
So, less food options and faster reproduction process has created a wide gap between Human and stray dogs which makes them aggressive as they have to depend on very less quantity. The hunger and competition among them creates the ‘MENACE’.
