Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has released Rs 15 lakh to feed stray animals in the city.

The civic body decided to spend Rs 15 lakh to feed stray animals in the city at the behest of animal rights organizations.

The animal activists approached the civic body seeking help in feeding nearly 300,000 stray animals, which used to get food from hotels, restaurants, and marketplaces, but are now starving as the ongoing Covid-19 crisis has forced many to shut down.

“Since the last two weeks, we have been feeding stray animals. Many dog feeders and animal rights activists, who were already doing a good job caring for the animals during the lockdown, had also approached us,” Joint Director (Animal Husbandry) was quoted speaking to Indianexpress.com.

The civic body is now providing 250 grams of food to each dog which will cost the civic body approximately Rs 5.60 per canine.
