But what if you really do care, what then? Earlier in my stay I saw a tourist feeding a puppy with her lunch. Unfortunately, she did not look around first to see if there were any other dogs. And dogs here are hungry enough to fight for food. With horror we watched two adult dogs attack the puppy, one throwing it high in the air by its throat. Big dogs were beaten back by onlookers, but the puppy lay, prostrate, on the ground. What could be done? No vet anywhere near. What were the options, leave it there to die slowly? Take it inside and put it in a box to die slowly? Do the hard thing and stop its suffering, some hellish how? Here, well we just phone the RSPCA, but when you live in a country without the animal welfare infrastructure, what then? And how does that infrastructure get developed? Drip down from all the richer Indians with their status symbol pedigrees needing local vet care? Maybe. Generally raising the standard of living of all the people, and building roads? Maybe too. Government push, and money? You would hope so, but…well, at this time of Brexit clusterfuck who are we to say what any other Government should be doing. Hearts and minds? Absolutely. As ‘People for Animals’ (Indian animal NGO) says on its Website ‘Compassion without action is evil’. So first of all you have to see it rather than look away, and feel compassion, then you actually have to DO something. Me, what am I doing? To start with I am writing this, whilst formulating a plan for what on earth little old me can possibly do in the face of such a huge challenge. Any ideas people, join with me?
