Apart from politicians, Canis lupus has been regularly in news for its nuisance value. Nearly everyday our reporters, far and wide, struggled to catch attention by narrating dreadful misdeeds of the quadripeds. The courts went a step ahead in legalizing culling of the notorious packs which happened to be a threat to our civilized human society.
Paradoxically, permanent elimination of bipeds who are a threat to the honour and life of the fairer sex is debated zealously, quoting the progressive fibre of our intellectual social structure.
Castration of the Canis lupus gang has been advised with ease and haste. What about castrating the ‘sportsmen’ who, every now and then, play with the dignity and honour of the ‘XX” genotype?
It was never investigated where those deadly species came from. Neither the politicians nor the law makers tried to realize that it is not they but we who have trespassed their habitat. Deforestation has made them vulnerable. Such incidences are only an attempt by the helpless creatures to protect themselves and their race. The better treatment would have been to identify the insecure animals and transport them to their original abode.
Secondly, the vets, and the people must be questioned who are blindly cross-breeding various species without a prior extensive research. When new breeds are generated unscientifically there may be the generation of species which may be a threat to human life. Such careless experiments have already been carried out in the other part of the world where human egg was crossed with the sperm of an ape or gorilla. The offspring was found to be monstrous and euthanasia had to be performed later. This is the fodder which we must all chew in quest of a sensible, sensitive and an optimum solution.
