"After repeated complaints about the dogs wreaking havoc in the city, the metropolis has made preparations to sterilise stray dogs and cats.
Dr Awadhesh Jha, Head of the Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Department of the metropolis, has announced that companies interested in the vaccination and sterilising of dogs and cats are invited to contact the metropolis within the next 15 days.
“We want to initiate a major drive as our efforts to sterilise stray cats and dogs with the help of one organisation has not helped,” said Jha."
The relationship between animal cruelty and human violence has been discussed extensively in scholarly literature. The topic is multi-disciplinary and has filled volumes in fields as diverse as sociology, psychology, psychiatry, philosophy, social work, criminology, public policy, and law. Interest in the subject has grown in recent years, as more and more studies have revealed the links between those who engage in non-human animal (heretofore “animal”) maltreatment and violence against people. By identifying crimes that co-occur with animal cruelty, it is thought that law enforcement officials could have another tool to try and prevent both animal cruelty and human violence.
