By Dr. Kuhu Roy
A stray dog will seldom get involved in the act of aggressive behaviour unless provoked or is in dire pain, injured or sees the person as a threat towards himself/herself. We as a community have the responsibility to go by the principles of compassion instead of acts of provocation. Our repulsive behaviour; teasing/bullying the stray dogs, hitting them with sticks and stones, will ultimately give birth to aggression even in the friendliest of the stray dogs to retaliate in self-defence. In being kind and compassionate, we can together create more of man-animal harmony.
