The campaign has booked an important success when the Nepal Police admitted its mistake and send out a circular to its posts urging its officers to use humane methods to control stray dogs.
With the support of our Volunteer Communication Director Shristi Shrestha and members of Animal Welfare Network Nepal, the petitions with 4000 signatures were handed over to the Nepal Police earlier this week. The Hanumandhoka Range Office has send out a circular to all police posts jurisdiction saying humane measures need to be used and help from animal welfare organisations should be sought whenever needed. The office also send a letter to AWNN confirming that it will implement humane methods. The police requested help in educating its officers in animal welfare issues.
