The Animals with questions....

In a recent court hearing, a bunch of pleas was filed by animal rights activists as well as a group of people seeking culling of stray dogs. A bench of Justices Dipak Misra and R Banumathi dismissed a plea that all stray dogs should be killed in view rising cases of dog bites over the years, even causing death of people. The bench called for a balanced approach on the issue. It said compassion should be shown towards stray dogs but at the same time, these animals could not be allowed to become a menace to the society.

This reminded me of the story of Baby Camel....

A baby camel had a habit of asking his mom a lot of questions. She didn’t entertain his questions usually. But one fine day she decided to answer her curious son’s queries.

Baby Camel: Mama why do I have this 3 toed feet?

Mother Camel: Well son,Son, camels are animals of the desert, when we trek across the desert your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand.

Baby Camel: Alright Mama. Then why do I have these great long eyelashes?

Mother Camel:  Desert have many sandstorms. These long curly eyelashes are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert

Baby Camel: Oh I get it! But Mama why do I have these big humps on my back?

Mother Camel: Sometimes in the desert it can be hard to find food and water for days. For such times, the fat in the hump provides energy. The hump allows us to survive in the desert."

Baby Camel: That's great mom, so we have huge feet to stop us from sinking in sand and long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes and these humps to store water, but Mom ...

Mother Camel: Yes Son?

Baby Camel: Where is the desert and How does all this help here at the Zoo?

When these animals are taken out of their natural habitat and put in an artificial enclosure. Their body parts cease to be useful in this kind of habitat. These animals are not supposed to be kept in zoo for people's amusements they have a right to live for themselves.

As Humans we have tried to be in control of everything. The mass breeding of dogs is indicative of the state’s mismanagement & failure at implementing standard Animal Birth Control (ABC). Culling them is not a solution, Animals, like any creatures, don’t ask to be brought into this world and have a right to live in this world too.

If only Animals had the ability to speak, they would surely had a lot of questions for humans.
