Punish Person Responsible for Mass Poisoning of Stray Dogs


Target: Ujjwal Nikam, Public Prosecutor, Mumbai, India

Goal: Demand person who killed 20 dogs with poisoned food is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

More than 20 stray dogs were recently found dead and dying by an animal activist who had been feeding them. In a horrid scene, corpses littered the neighborhood while other dogs were found running erratically and struggling to breathe. Authorities say that someone deliberately fed the dogs food laced with poison. A pesticide bag was found on the scene.

According to authorities, two separate security cameras show a man feeding stray dogs in the neighborhood. He has been identified as a local pig farmer and slaughterer. Locals say that the stray dogs scared and hurt the pigs, and suspect that the man poisoned the dogs to keep them from causing further nuisance to his pigs.

A similar mass poisoning occurred in a nearby neighborhood only a couple months prior to this incident. Fifty dogs were found dead in that case. Rights group Peace for Animal Welfare Association India has said that is suspects the pig farmer to be responsible for both of these horrific acts. The suspect has been questioned and was subsequently released without charge.

This callous mass killing resulted in the slow, torturous death of over 20 dogs. If the person responsible is not stopped, these savage acts will continue. Sign the petition below to urge the prosecutor to seek to punish the suspect to the fullest extent of the law, if he is found guilty.


Dear Mr. Nikam,

Many dogs were recently found scattered about a Mumbai neighborhood dead, while others were seen behaving erratically and struggling to breathe. Authorities suspect that the dogs were poisoned by a man seen on camera feeding them food that was suspected to be laced with poison. This is the second mass stray dog poisoning of recent times, both of which occurred within close proximity to each other.

This barbaric act resulted in the slow, painful deaths of several animals. These shocking mass killings will continue until the person responsible is punished. In order to prevent the person responsible from re-offending as well as send a strong message that this type of cruelty will not be tolerated, you must ensure that the person guilty is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    Sickening act by a Sickening 2 legged animal. I say take away his pigs and his ability to have them. He certainly does not deserve to own any animal if he could so cruelly destroy so many poor dogs.

    this same type of thing happens to cats and there are only a few thousand signatures.. sometimes only a few hundred. i’m not signing this one.

    • very sad, that you do not sign, the reason is wrong (up to my opinion). Not signing HERE you do not help cats (and do not help dogs either). I like cats, but I LOVE dogs. If I click on “actuanimaux” there are sometimes 10 cats and only 1 dog presented, all in need. Sometimes I am angry, because they have the focus that much on cats – but I click for all of them. For cats because it is a shame what people do to animals in general – for dogs because my heart is bleeding if I see what happens to them.
