Man Killed for Feeding Stray Dogs???

A dog lover, who cared for stray dogs by giving them food and water, was killed by his neighbor who couldn't stand his passion for stray animals! This unfortunate incident happened in Howrah city in Kolkata state of India. The victim had gone out to feed stray dogs as usual when the murderer came charging at him, complaining that the dogs were a nuisance and created problems for the people. When the animal lover was attacked, the dogs charged at the attacker and he fled. But he came back later, this time with an iron rod, and started hitting the animal lover on the head. This resulted in the death of the animal lover.


This cruel and sad incident clearly shows how intolerant our society has become of animals and animal lovers. And this has happened in a country which is known to worship animals as different forms of God!! Why kill animals and accuse them of creating a nuisance when we have destroyed their habitat? If we leave no place for them to live, we will have to be ready to co-exist with them. In fact, all the animals want to stay away from the merciless humankind and try their best to avoid them. But with their shrinking habitat, they have no option but to live with us and suffer heavily in return.

This kind of cruelty and insensitivity is totally unacceptable. The government and the authorities must ensure the safety of animals and animal lovers. How long will animals be tortured and killed for no fault of theirs?
