Opinion: Common Problems Caused by Stray Dogs
These days it would seem more and more natural to see stray dogs walking down the road, roaming the countryside, or rummaging through someone’s back yard. For most of us, we try to do everything that we can in order to get the strays to a shelter or vet in order to find them a new home or to have them returned to their rightful owners, but so many people still choose to turn a blind eye to the problem, which in turn, can cause problems all by itself.
Why don’t you want to help a stray dog? Is it because they could have diseases? They could be angry and aggressive? It’s not your problem? Ok, so if it’s not your problem, whose problem is it? If you are not at least calling the local shelters or dog pounds, you are technically running the risk of being responsible for the next child to come playing down the street and coming into contact with the pup. Would you rather have that playing on your conscious? Just because this animal could be all of the above things doesn’t mean that it is doesn’t have rights – it still feels hunger, cold, love, fear, pain and anger! You wouldn’t leave a lost child playing on the streets, would you? So what makes a stray dog any different? In addition, stray dogs run the risk of being attacked by another dog, getting hit by a car or causing a traffic accident from someone swerving to miss the dog in the street.
That’s the thing about stray dogs – they generally can cause many more problems when left to their own devices as they would if you would just call someone to give you a hand in removing the creature from the streets. It is a correct assumption to make when you assume that they could be diseased, however, these diseases could be easily treated so they no longer feel pain. By leaving the animal roaming around in the wild, you are just running the risk of the stray dog infecting other pets – for example, the stray could become aggressive with another dog in the park, bite it and spread the disease. This is one of the problems caused by stray dogs; a problem easily resolved with a quick phone call to the local animal control.
Stray dogs root through trash cans – this is another true statement. Another true statement again is that if someone was to call animal control, the dog would be safely homed somewhere, and fed properly so it wouldn’t have to root through a garbage can and make a mess of the streets.
Another problem that stray dogs can cause is fear among the community. A stray dog is usually a frightened one, or at least one that has become hardened through long periods of having to survive alone and on the streets. This means that they are likely to become aggressive when approached, or can be rather feisty around children. One way to solve this problem is, yes you guessed it, call the correct people and have the poor pup removed from the streets. If you want your children, and indeed yourself, to live in a safer community, take action, not against the stray dogs, but for them. You might think that they are dirty, diseased and rabid, but in all fairness, they are just scared, alone and hungry and trying to find a way to survive after their owners left them alone to pretty much die. You may pass judgment on these owners, but in reality, by stepping back and doing nothing, you aren’t helping with the problem.
