Sindh govt submits report
Over 34,000 stray dogs were culled in Sindh in a single month.

Sindh has been experiencing a rabies problem. In response, it has begun vaccinated stray dogs against rabies but in some cases, dogs are being culled too.
Rabies has claimed at least 22 lives in Sindh this year and thousands of people have been bitten by stray dogs. In many cases, hospitals have run out of anti-rabies vaccines.
Animal rights activists have called on the government not to cull dogs and vaccinate them instead.
