For pets' sake: Chennaiites urged to avoid high decibel crackers this Diwali

- No Comments -
CHENNAI: The Society for Prevention of Cruelties to Animals (SPCA) launched a campaign in Chennai against bursting of high decibel crackers during Diwali.

SPCA president Harish L Metha said a vehicle with a banner requesting people to avoid bursting high decibel crackers started moving around the city on Sunday. It will cover various parts of the city to spread the message among the people. The vehicle would cover the length and breadth of the city for the next three days, he said.

Hearing capacity of the animal is much more powerful than that of humans, according to veterinarians.

Animals can even hear sounds that are emitted at micro decibels. So a loud thud would reverberate 100 times heavier on their ears, creating panic among them. They would get stressed out easily.

That is why many community dogs would hide under cars or run in search of secluded areas, where the noise could not be heard.

In case of any complaints of injuries to animals due to cracker bursting, people can call SPCA on telephone 044-25611628 or alert the inspectors P Srinivasalu 94441-75210 and S Rajendiran on 94441-00287.

Veterinarian R Sokkalingam can also be contacted on his mobile, 96772- 97821, for any assistance.
