Motorists, struggling to spot stray dogs and cattle in darkness, may now heave a sigh of relief. In a bid to prevent stray dogs from being hit by vehicles in night, some animal lovers here have started an initiative by fitting stray dogs with reflective collar belts.
The first of its kind campaign in the Belagavi has been launched by Belgaum Animal rescue and Care (BARC), a Non Governmental Organization with the help of The Nerve to Serve. “We started the drive recently and tied the reflective collar around necks of nearly 50 stray dogs along the City roads here. and they have set a taget to cover around 500 dogs in the initial stage. Our purpose is to cover all stray dogs along the streets,” Apoorva Chikkamath, Secretary of BARC.
The collars reflect the light from vehicles, helping motorists to avoid ramming into stray dogs in the night. “Every day, a number of vehicles run over stray dogs in dark stretches of the NH and city roads. Accidents occur as the motorists cannot spot a dog or animal in the dark and visibility was an issue. We hope, our initiative will protect both these animals and motorists,” Apoorva said.
