A stray is actually creating a menace in our colony, bitten several people including me. We are trying to remove the dog for our safety, but the dog is protected by an animal activist. What can we do? Please advice.

Whether or not the dog is predictable about when and how aggressive it will be in response to certain triggers must be considered. The dogs whose aggressive behaviours are unpredictable carry high risk to people. We tend to forget that dogs do not communicate in the same way as humans. For example, humans make eye contact when communicating and make contact through an open handshake. Both of these behaviours may be seen as a threat to dogs. Frightened and poorly socialised dogs are more likely to bite. Don’t pat, touch, nudge while he is resting, sleeping or eating. Don’t leave
