Subject: Letter regarding issue of stray dogs
Through an article in your newspaper, I would like to draw attention towards the issue of stray dogs.
My locality has recently been noticing a surge in the number of stray dogs. These stray dogs are malnourished poor beings who sometimes meet their end in a road accident. It is very hard to look at them and not feel an ounce of sympathy. But they also can be a nuisance for the people in their locality.
These stray dogs sometimes can act in violent ways and many times they have bit many people in their area. We continue to feed them and treat them with care but it gets harder when they are reacting in a violent way. They also suffer greatly from the extreme weather conditions of rainfall when they huddle in a corner. Animal welfare committee can help and provide these stray dogs with loving homes.
I hope that the columns of your newspaper will help this issue reach the concerned authorities so these poor animals can find proper homes.
