Port Blair, May 22: To control animal population, the Department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Services conducted a special three days Animal Birth Control drive from May 18 to 20, 2023 at Veterinary Dispensary, Swaraj Dweep. A total of 20 dogs (10 males and 10 females) were neutered, out of which, 3 were stray dogs. Sterilization is the most humane way of reducing the population of stray animals.
