Delhi Police to use stray dogs to form security squad

Stray canines roaming the Indian capital may soon find themselves attending police training school with civic authorities planning to turn the animals into security dogs, reports say. New Delhi residents have long informally adopted some strays as watchdogs for their homes and shops and fed them, but this marks the first formal plan to turn them into municipal security dogs.

City authorities said they would enlist police animal trainers to work with the strays and press the canines into service as guard dogs alongside a newly formed “May I Help You?” city security force which aims to assist the public and bolster safety.

The dogs will be fed and vaccinated under the plan, welcomed by animal rights activists.
