From Our Correspondent
GUWAHATI: The picturesque Buddhist monastery town of Tawang at the India-China border in Arunachal Pradesh is facing the problem of menacing stray dogs of Tawang breed that have kept the residents on toes.
In a recent case, a stray dog ripped off an ear of a child near old circuit house. Because of the threat, people are unable to go for morning and evening walks while children and old people face more problems.
The situation has come to such a pass that, Deputy Commissioner of Tawang, Sang Phuntsok chaired a meeting with representatives of the Army, ITBP, SSB, government officials and NGOs like Monpa Mimang Tshogpa, Tangyom Tsokpa, EPS, MBPCs, The Humanity Group, TMEs, Secretary Tawang Monastery, AMSU, ATDSU and public leaders in order to find a solution to this problem.
The meeting on Wednesday took several decisions ranging from seeking sponsorship/donations for taking care of stray dogs to launching publicity campaigns in other districts for adoption of the dogs.
The meeting decided for temporary segregation of stray dogs at proposed dairy farm site of Veterinary Department while sterilisation to continue.
Some other resolutions of the meeting included encouraging willing adoption of stray dogs and setting up enclosures for stray dogs at village and block level.
