Thank you for your interest in saving animals in Bangalore. We are deeply touched by the national, international response to the issue. Update:

1.. The catching and killing of dogs is not happening in Bangalore. We are maintaining vigil.

2.. As we had shared in our previous update, a Public Relations exercise is being organised in Bangalore to build public confidence and counter the panic. As part of this about 100,000 leaflets are going to be distributed through newspaper vendors. This insert was paid for by a donation from Phil Wollen, Winsome Constance Kindness Trust in Australia.

3.. We are helping to prepare an information kit for use by MLAs (and perhaps others) in the state legislative assembly in order to improve their understanding of dog population control and related issues.

4.. In the next one week or so, it is likely that at least three PILs will come up for hearing in the Karnataka High Court. Animal groups are being represented in all such cases. The AWBI too is being heard as an interested party.

5.. The Lingayats have commenced a fast in Bangalore to protest the killing of dogs. The Lingayat caste is one of the two dominant castes in Karnataka, spread mostly in the Northern part of the state. The community is a Hindu sect known for their fierce Shaivism and are staunch vegetarians.

6.. A group of animal lovers held a protest in Bangalore on 31 March 07 against the killing of dogs.

7.. The AWBI on its part is putting out a paid public service announcement (in the form of an advertisement) in newspapers in Bangalore. Through AWBI facilitation, the Ahmedabad Animal Help Foundation has been contracted by the Bangalore Municipal Corporation to start sterilizing animals in the city. The AWBI President along with a WHO representative met with the Bangalore Municipal Commissioner and impressed upon the need for a systematic, scientific programme for controlling street dogs. AWBI representatives have also been sent to other towns in Karnataka to liaise with municipal authorities in order to reduce knee jerk reactions. The AWBI has written to Chief Secretaries of all states emphasizing the need for states to adopt ABC programmes instead of random extermination drives.

SAMPLE LETTER

To the Government of India
To the Administration

Subject: Burning of living beings

Dear Excellency, Dear Ladies and Gentlemen, Mahatma Ghandi is untill this time for a lot of people in the world an ideal of a person in India, living for non-violent dealing and for freedom. Now we must hear that in this country India, where Mahatma Ghandi lived and worked, where he fought against violence, animals in Bangladore, dogs are burned still alife!!! What kind of cruelty in a country of Mahatma Ghandi is going on there? The peacefull people from India- what are they doing? When we heard this news a world in us, the image of India was totaly broken in our minds. Our sympathy for your country is finished suddenly. We please you in the interest of your country, in the interst of all peacfull people to stop this violence now! Animals, dogs are living beings, they have souls and emotions. Your religion of Hinduism is a leading religion and a example for the respect of all living beings! We can imagine, that to solve the problems with dogs in the street isn�t easy. But we believe to your intelligence to solve this problem without murdering life! If you don�t know to manage this problems of the dogs: Please ask for substitution! Castrating dogs, to put them outside in a special good place would be a solution. BUT: This murdering, burning life with fire, burning the souls of life, life perhaps of a earlier life... These cruelties are to stop at once! You are burning the lifes and souls.... Here ae the proofs going around the world in internet: Following link contains disturbing pictorials of the canine carnage, petitions, videos
