TIRUPATI: With a view to avoid inconvenience to pilgrims and vahana sevaks during Sri Padmavathi Devi Brahmotsavams at Tiruchanoor near Tirupati, the Tiruchanoor gram panchayat Animal Care Land had caught 205 stray dogs and kept them in its confinement for the last 12 days. On Saturday, the Animal Care Land released the dogs into their original territories.
