Kochi: Gram panchayat presidents in a Kerala district have adopted a resolution proposing that stray dogs in the state be exported to South Korea, China and the northeast, to counter the rising menace of stray dogs.
“In my proposal to counter the menace of stray dogs, I suggested that we should export their meat to generate foreign money. People in the northeast and in countries like China and South Korea consume dog meat on a large scale.
If we export canines, we can address the problems of stray dog attacks on humans,” Edakkttuvayal Grama Panchayat President K R Jayakumar said. He said if the state government accepts the resolution, more people can come forward to start dog farms to generate income.
The resolution came at a time when Kerala government is seeking a comprehensive plan for the culling of violent and rabies-infected canines.
