A poster by St Thomas College Old Students Association in Pala announces a discount of 10 per cent on air guns to those facing difficulties due to stray dogs and 25 per cent to those who have at least one police case against them while dealing with strays.
And the group has presented their first gun to Jose Maveli, who heads Stray Dog Eradication Group and was arrested for killing many strays in the past. Mr Maveli, who runs a shelter home for street children in Ernakulam, is out on bail but claims he is "not a killer".
"I am a human being. People approach me and I give them the numbers of various dog catchers who can help them," he told NDTV.
"God give us the courage and strength to eliminate stray dogs from Kerala. Stray dogs are dangerous...," the video shows schoolchildren repeating pledge after Jose Maveli.
At the same gathering, organised to help people involved in the stray dog movement, a businessman, Kochouseph Chittilapilly ridiculed the Kerala's top cop for taking action against dog killers.
James Pambakkal, a former teacher who is also part of the organisation offering guns told NDTV, "We have no business interest in this matter. Unfortunately, some authorities are more interested in protecting stray dogs than human beings and that's why we came up with this plan."
Appalled by the organisation's comments, activist Sumita Susheelan said, "Is this now a terrorist state? Just few days back the Supreme Court of India slammed the Kerala government saying 'are you celebrating the killing of dogs?'."
Last week in Kalady panchayat, 24 stray dogs were killed, who said the killing will continue as long as dog bites do. In Kottayam, a group of political leaders had killed eight stray dogs and hung them upside down to poles while staging a protest.
Police had filed a case against both the groups.
