Stray animals are a huge risk-Administration sleeping
Stray animals are causing too much trouble on roads.
Administration seems to be sleeping over the fact that stray animals have caused and are still causing trouble to public. Recently a foreign tourist lost his life after being attacked by a cow in Jaipur. One such incident happened in Lake City as well where a foreign tourist succumbed to serious injuries.
Smart city does not seem to be progressing in saving lives at all. Be it the increasing traffic or murders, administration is sleeping over the fact that without taking care of human lives, progress means nothing. Every time a minister comes to city, roads are cleared off dirt and even animals disappear into an unknown land. Come departure of these ministers and all gets back to the same routine.
Stray animals, both cows and dogs can be seen on the city’s roads almost all the time. People have suffered dog bites in the past from these stray dogs. Now the growing numbers of cows is adding to chaos on the road as these animals place themselves very comfortably in the middle of an ongoing traffic and cause accidents. This situation is riskier at night as spotting these animals on road is almost an impossible task.
Sometimes tug of war between animals on the road results in many people getting injured. Usually what has been noticed is that people owning dairy farms let their animals loose either due to shortage of space or for the simple reason that they are not able to take care of their animals’ needs. So they let the animals loose shoving them back later.
Administration is not worried or needs a heavy weight to look into these issues or is it too lazy to take up issues like these? Whatever the case may be the issue of stray animals needs to be tackled as it has taken a lot of lives. With tourists getting troubled by stray animals, the image of our country as a wonderful tourist destination is at stake. Administration needs to be alert and keep a check on these cattle owners and take strict action against them.
