I just signed the petition “Tamil Nadu’s Director General of Police: Indepth investigation of abduction & disposal of dogs in Mogappair” on Change.org.
It’s important. Will you sign it too?

Tamil Nadu’s Director General of Police: Indepth investigation of abduction & disposal of dogs in Mogappair
We want an in-depth investigation on the heinous capture and loading of the community pets of Mogappair West Garden Area. We want to know where the dogs have been held or released and demand that they be returned to their original community at Mogappair West Garden.
On 28th July 2013, in Nolumbur, a Chennai Corporation employee abducted more than 20 community dogs in a tricycle used to collect trash. One passerby managed to click some photographs, as the employee was not in uniform and had no id on him. When asked he claimed that he had the necessary permission for transporting these dogs.
Due to the inaction of the officers at V7 Nolambur police station, we continued undaunted in attempting to discover the fate of these 22 dogs.
Prabudass, the only corporation employee we could clearly link to the crime informed us that the dogs had only been captured and moved to another area, which in itself is illegal. However, we were reluctant to believe this information as he was refusing to tell us into which area he had the dogs released.
In the meantime, the residential association had barracked the police station, threatening the police officers and the animal welfare activits and volunteers with dire consequences if they should continue to investigate this case. Unmoved by these threats, we continued in the quest to discover the fate of the poor innocents. We discovered a shocking sequence of events whereby the homeowner’s association had sanctioned to “arrange” the abduction and round up these dogs and remove them from the area.
The next day, 15 of the association people came to the V-7 Nolambur police station at 22:30 hours and told the Inspector they supported the association with the decision to abduct the dogs.
In our investigations we found only one dog remaining in the vicinity of Mogappair West Garden area. The dog was found with a wound on his head that could only have been inflicted by a rock flung at him with some force.
Most distressing is that fact that the police of V7 Nolambur police station are still unwilling to take up the case or even file an FIR as a senior former judge is a resident member of the association.
We implore every person who sees this post to please take up the ghastly atrocity as a cause worth fighting for and bring pressure upon the police to prosecute the guilty parties.
Again, we emphasize:
Please, sign this petition to force the Tamil Nadu’s Director General of Police to carry out an indepth investigation on the heinous capture and loading of the community pets of Mogappair West Garden Area. We want to know where the dogs have been held and demand that they be returned to their original community at Mogappair West Garden.
Also, please call up the Nolambur Police Station on 9176528259 or 9940596447 and add your outraged voices to ours.
Please, share to as MANY PEOPLE as possible.
