Why Mass Animals Sterilisation campaigns?
The problem of uncontrolled populations of dogs adversely affects not only the animals, which are often uncared for or unwanted and put out to wander the streets. It also affects the human residents, who are at risk from sick and scavenging dogs, many of which suffer from parasitic infestations that result in zoonosis - transfer of animals diseases to humans, especially children
