Gurgaon's inability to deal with menace of stray animals
Attended or unattended, animals such as cows, pigs, sheep, dogs, goats, bulls, monkeys, and even wild antelopes pose a security hazard to pedestrians and commuters in old and new Gurgaon. Local police does not do much, and when the Municipal Corporation Gurgaon (MCG) sends a team to remove the animals from roads, the owners and handlers beat up officials, and get into heated arguments with personnel of NGOs. To cope with the situation, the MCG has asked for police protection while carrying out their operations. But it can also work to improve sanitation, and provide green areas for grazing wherever required in Gurgaon so that owners are not forced to lead their animals into parks and green belts in the city.
