Homeless canines

It is regretable that a developed town like Matara lacks Animal Homes to accommodate stray canines who roam the busy streets obstructing traffic and pedestrians.

It is heartening to note that the President himself has banned the destruction of strays. The authorities should make arrangements to accommodate these innocent animals in homes from where some may find happy homes.

A philosophy student form Germany whom I met in Matara explained that in Germany stray canines are not destroyed. Such animals are sent to homes maintained specially for stray-Animals. It is against the law to destroy stray animals in Germany.
