You have noticed many stray animals on the road during the busy hours of the day. These animals cause traffic jams as well as accidents. You have already written to the concerned authorities but no action has been taken so far. Write a letter to the Editor, The Hindu, drawing attention of the Municipal Commissioner, Chennai. You are Shantha/Suresh, 12 M.G. Road, Chennai.

Subject: Menace caused by stray animals
Through the esteemed columns of your newspaper, I would like to draw the attention of the Municipal Commissioner towards the problems created by stray animals across the city.
Animals such as cows, dogs and pigs can be found sitting or randomly moving on the roads, thereby causing problems to the swift movement of traffic. At times, they end up creating huge traffic jams. Apart from this, these animals urinate or relieve themselves on the roads. This adds to the already existing problem of cleanliness in the city. Also, most of them eat out of the municipal dustbins and, in the process, end up littering waste matter on the roads. A lot of people have also been attacked by these animals.
I believe these animals would do well if they were to be placed in animal care units. I have already written to the concerned authorities, but no action has been taken to improve the existing conditions. Therefore, I request them to take necessary actions before more harm is caused. Their efforts in this regard would be appreciated by everyone.
