We see stray animals on the road and around us. They are in many forms. We see bulls as they are useless in human society as tractors replaced the work in fields. We see donkeys moving around as they also do not have anyway useful. The same way comes to the pigs, dogs, etc. Cow become stray after they do not give milk which is useful for human society. So Human being looks for benefit-driven animals and has no responsibility toward stray animals. Even older people, which not earn are treated as useless in some homes as they give not any way useful for their children.
The solution sought by thinkers of modern society is “finish them”. The logic is stray dogs bite us. Stray bulls and donkeys cause a lot of problems. The more views put forward is cut them and create meat which will earn some income. Are we thinking & becoming more and more self-centered?
The Vedic theory always put-up logic of creating peace and harmony around us and taking responsibility of your family and around us. Gaushala are run on religious grounds mainly and not on humanity grounds. We take responsibility of animals on which we have full control as pets in homes or useful for us in monetary terms like horses, buffaloes, cows and others. But real persons should take the responsibility of stray animals around us. We can prepare some food for these animals along with regular food and feed them. You will find more happiness and satisfaction then keeping a pet and caring for own satisfaction.
