Dodgy Common Sense

I received this mail from our apartment authorities to remove dogs because they cause noise pollution and unhealthy environment. I replied to their mail, quite honestly, what I think about this. Here it is

This is rather funny and stupid in some sense. I do not own a pet neither going to. And I am a cynophobic as well (see here). But you should realize the fact that

1. People really love their pets, and what's suggested here is to kill your dog as immediate effect.

2. Dog causing noise pollution. This is the most lame excuse that anyone can ever give. Tomorrow, they will come and file a petition that birds' chirping is deafening them. At the same time, they can sleep like a baby when 120 dB loud music is played in Thiruvella or loud music sessions that happens randomly in nearby areas. This is crazy.

Get real, people. If something you can do -- stop using plastic bags, avoid power wastage, file petition for slip-disk cases that bad road can cause. Barking dogs are not real problem, unavailability of freely available drinking water is.

Court directs removal of dogs from residence in Coimbatore

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has held that as a matter of right, no one is entitled to keep dogs or other animals in a residential area, which create public nuisance.

Justice S.Tamilvanan, who confirmed the order of a Sub-Divisional Magistrate/ Revenue Divisional Officer, said it was the duty of the authorities and municipal administration to remove the nuisance, in order to regulate the same, in public interest.

The case pertains to D.Vikram, a resident of Circuit House Road, Coimbatore, holding a large number of dogs without obtaining licence for commercial purposes and causing noise pollution and an unhealthy atmosphere in a residential area.

The impugned order had directed that the activity of keeping any dogs be discontinued and that the dogs be removed forthwith.

His neighbours, who were affected by the barking and howling of over 30 dogs at odd hours, had filed a complaint that he was violating Section 352 of the Coimbatore City Municipal Corporation Act.

Thanks and regards.

Yeah - I agree, people starts complaining about the Dogs barking sound. To tell the truth, People companing here are most probably did not have a good experience in spending time with pets. They may be scared because of that and I hope thats the reason why they are telling that the Barking sound of Dog is Anoying.

And another good point is after all this is a sound produced from a animal (100% Agmark Natural sound :->), If you are a nature lover then you should go with that :-> .

I need to tell this because I own lot of Pet's in my Home lol .
