Even though the Municipal Corporation is sterilizing dogs to reduce the stray dog problem in the city, the canines continue to annoy tourists visiting the Darbar Sahib.
Following the opening of the Animal Birth Control Centre, MC authorities told citizens that the problem of dog nuisance would be addressed as soon as possible. The authorities are aware of an increase in the number of animals in the Golden Temple region. Due to the presence of dogs wandering the heritage street, the movement has become impossible.
Residents claim that when the dogs encounter guests, they get violent and attack them.
“About 15-20 dogs keep wandering in the tiny lane. They fight one other and may sometimes assault tourists.” a visitor from Delhi stated.
According to the MC, when the Animal Birth Control Centre in Naraingarh started operationally, 15 dogs were sterilized daily.
According to authorities, almost 1,000 dogs have been sterilized thus far. The Animal Birth Control Centre, according to Mayor Karamjit Singh Rintu, has the necessary facilities, and the city will speed up the sterilization procedure.
