DA impounds stray animals

ITANAGAR, Nov 27: Twelve stray animals were impounded on Tuesday by a team of the capital complex administration led by Itanagar CO Likha Radh and Senior Veterinary Officer (IMC) Dr G Piel.
The DA said it is carrying out the drive to “eliminate stray animals that are left in the open by the owners, which causes obstruction, nuisance, traffic problems and unhygienic atmosphere.”
So far, 105 animals have been impounded.
DC Prince Dhawan informed that, despite repeated notices and warnings, cattle owners are not taking adequate measures to keep their animals off the public places and roads. He requested the residents of the capital complex to keep their animals confined.
He said the administration would continue the drive while observing the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. (DIPRO)
