KRISHNAGIRI: His pet dog died of poisoning by suspected thieves. And the dog owner, M. Murugesan of Madathoor village in Krishnagiri wished to show his gratitude and love for his pet by giving it a honourable farewell. He performed the last rites to the carcass and laid the pet to rest just like he would do the funeral for his close kin.

“My dog Mani died due to poisoning,” Murugesan said.  Thieves, who visited his village during nights, for robbing the cattle and the like, poisoned the dog, he claimed.

 

In the early hours of Saturday, Murugesan found his dog Mani seriously sick and battling for its life. He tried to give first aid to save the animal but the dog died after vomiting pieces of chicken intestine.

Several dogs in the village have died mysteriously over the last few weeks, complain the villagers of Madathoor near Shoolagiri. The villagers feel that the thieves on the prowl are poisoning the dogs to death at night.

“The dogs in our village were killed by giving chicken intestine laced with poison as Mani was killed,” said a grieving Murugesan. He took out a funeral procession for his dog and laid it to rest.

 

However, people in neighbouring Sembarasanapalli village have a different take on the death of the dogs. According to them, as many as 50 dogs have died so far in few weeks. The dogs are being poisoned to death by some of the Madathoor villagers because the stray dogs attack and bite their cattle.
