ABC Mom: The case of a widespread by poorly managed ABC in Bangalore by Vikhyath Bheemesh

Posted on | July 28, 2012 | 2 Comments

The cruelty perpetrated on Bangalore’s dogs by an inefficient BBMP babudom and several insincere AWO’s participating in the Animal Birth Control (ABC) program – has been covered many many times on this publication. The widespread but poorly managed ABC program causes unthinkable cruelty on Bangalore’s dogs – with poor surgical practices and horrible tagging and drop practices.

One of our contributors reports on a litter of 4 puppies he has been feeding  near his workplace. Yesterday he met their mom – an ABC dog!

Both ears meant doubly sure of the ABC procedure for BBMP right? Apparently not!

As you can see from the photographs her ears are clipped with the ‘v’ – BOTH ears as BBMP insists. Clearly this is a dog on a sum of approx Rs 1,000 has been paid by BBMP to an AWO (you can see here a list of AWO’s in Bangalore and where they operate). The AWO vets actually showed the organ of this female dog to the AD of BBMP responsible for the ward, who verified and payments were vetted at the BBMP JD’s office. That’s how it works. So there IS a chain of command. It’s your judgement on how it works.

PS: BTW both the ears are clipped on the claim that it is difficult for dog catchers to see a dogs ears when they are sleeping when about to be caught. Now if ANY of the good babus in BBMP had ever seen a dog catching operation in practice they’d know that dogs start barking when the catching van and catchers are within 200 mts. Catch them ‘sleeping’ within eyesight of a dog catcher. However that is a totally different discussion and there is a different hard wiring of brains apparently that is the criteria if one wishes to be a babu in BBMP or another municipal corporation.

    ‎ I would like to update all who have been folllowing this post on this forum after the first update on the 1st of Aug that the Mom had gone missing.. I would like to update you that the mom was spotted by me 4 days back… I would also like to confirm that on further investigation I found that The mother dog was taken in for an ABC a couple of days after it had delivered, this is confirmed as I have eye witness’ First witness is the man who takes care of the bakery where I feed the dog and the puppies and the engineer at the construction site where the puppies have been taking shelter. I CONFIRM THAT ABC WAS DONE WHEN THE MOTHER WAS STILL LACTATING!
