The Metropolitan Municipality has started sterilizing dogs and vaccinating them against rabies after the increasing number of stray dogs biting the people walking on the road, causing problems in the traffic and killing of the khasibos kept by the locals. Ramesh Sapkota, administrative officer of The Jane Goodall Institute Nepal informed that stray dogs will be collected daily and sterilized in national trading.

He said that more than two hundred dogs have been sterilized and vaccinated against rabies as part of the stray dog sterilization and rabies vaccination program that started last Tuesday. He said that in the first phase, about 1,000 dogs will be sterilized.

Rajeshman Singh, Mayor of Birgunj Metropolitan City, informed that such a campaign has been started to control the increase in the number of stray dogs in Birgunj. As the number of dogs is increasing daily, they have started neutering to reduce it and this will reduce the number of stray dogs, Mayor Singh believes. A few days ago, the Metropolitan Municipality launched a dog killing campaign to stop the menace of stray dogs, but after the rights activists started protesting against the dog killing campaign, the Metropolitan Municipality started a sterilization and rabies vaccination campaign instead of the killing campaign.
