Actress Trisha is known for her love for dogs and has been a long-time supporter of PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals). She has never hidden her disapproval of ill-treatment of animals.
Now, she has shot off a letter to the Chennai Mayor Saidai S Duraisamy urging him to drop plans to catch around 30,000 dogs and confine them to pounds.
‘I respectfully urge you to scrap the plan to round up as many as 30,000 dogs from the streets and imprison them in 15 new pounds in Chennai. Warehousing dogs, even if they are sick or old, for the rest of their lives is extremely cruel,’ said Trisha in the letter.
Trisha said she was for a humane manner of handling the issue and urged the civic authorities to focus on animal birth control and anti-rabies programme.
The actress is busy with projects including Jayam Ravi’s Boologam, Jiiva-starrer Endrendrum Punnagai, and bilingual RUM among others. She hasn’t been since much on the silver screen since her last movie Samar released for Pongal festival.
