I read some where ( can't remember where....or maybe watched it somewhere) that unless the stray animals are hurt( so can't find their own food) malnourished or have very little food to find, it is not good to feed them ( for their health)

 

The reason being...

1) The stray animals need to look for the food and also hunt for it ...rats , pigeons etc . If they get regular food at one place, they stop looking for food and become lazy and unfit. 

I often see these extremely fat , swollen up dogs lying on the steps of open shopping complexes that have lot of eating stalls.

 

2) People give them food that humans eat...biscuits , bread, rotis. This is not a balanced diet for them . On their own , they scavenge and hunt and that gives them a much wider range of food + exercise.

 

3) Independent strays become dependent on humans.

 

4) The strays have very good immunity which  they develop by scavenging  . Eating low quality ( in tern of balance nutrition ) human food reduces their immunity.

 

5) Gathering of strays specially dogs often causes inconvenience to people. Sometimes these dogs become territorial, form gangs.Sometimes they attack people.

 

This results in normal neutral people becoming anti dogs specially if the victims are children.

Unknowingly , dog lovers turm normal people into dog haters....which in the long run is bad for the strays....because most normal people are fine living with a few strays around them.

 

The recommendation was to instead go and

1)work in animal shelters. 

2)Volunteer in rescue of injured and sick strays and their rehabilitation 

3) Be watchful of cruelty against animals and report it.

4) Spread awareness about animal welfare and helplines for animals.
