Hyderabad: After many beggars and hawkers were picked up by the city police and shifted to rehabilitation centres in order to sanitise the city, it is now the turn of stray dogs to “vanish”. Dog lovers say street dogs have gone missing from Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills and their surroundings. 

Residents of these areas allege that street dogs have been caught and taken away by the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) in the past 24 hours. They allege that the dogs are being poisoned to sanitise the city for Ivanka Trump’s visit!


Animal activists allege that street dogs across Hyderabad are being poisoned or picked up by the municipality in a clean-up drive launched by the Telangana government in preparation for the Global Entrepreneurship Summit the city is hosting this month. Dogs have been found dead or seriously ill with symptoms of poisoning, they alleged.

A resident of Jubilee Hills who looks after strays in the locality said on condition of anonymity said that his dogs are very friendly and have never bitten anyone. “My dogs have not come back after being picked up.”


He said that doctors from GHMC confirmed, when the residents took some of the dogs for examination, that they had been poisoned.
