Dear [NAME]

Re: Ongoing inhumane dog culls in Kerala

I am writing to you after hearing very disturbing reports of ongoing cruelty being committed by
government-employed officers in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

According to recent reports and evidence, dogs are being poisoned or beaten to death en masse, and
this cruelty has been ongoing since 2006. As you know, such cruelty is entirely in breach of India’s
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act (1960) and Animal Birth Control Act 2001. Furthermore, it is
creating an international outcry which will be harmful to the moral and cultural standing of the country.

According to the official website of the Kerala Government, the dogs are being seized and destroyed in
order to control “rabies menace”. Yet this is contrary to the recommendations of the World Health
Organisation, the Alliance for Rabies Control and The World Society for the Protection of Animals,
which state that mass removal of dogs is ineffective in controlling rabies.

I would greatly appreciate you investigating this issue as a matter of urgency and issuing reassurances
that the cruelty in Kerala will cease.

Yours sincerely,
