CHITRAL - A number of wolves, jackals, eagles, birds and other wildlife have died in Chitral when they ate poisonous meat of stray dogs that were killed by Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) Mastuj Booni.

Syed Muzaffar Hussain, a local social worker of Booni, said that TMA Mastuj Booni killed stray dogs by giving them poison.

He said that the dogs were thrown away openly in green ground of Qaqlasht pasture instead of burying them. Wolves, eagles, birds, jackals and other wildlife animals ate the meat of the dead dogs which resulted in deaths.

He said that wild birds that ate this poisonous meat were haunted down by eagles. As a result these precious eagles also died as well.

Residents of Booni said that it was a blunder to leave these dead dogs in the open. They also alleged that in past TMA threw such dead dogs in river which contaminated the river water causing different diseases.
