Animal Nepal in March 2015 conducted a population survey of the roaming street dog population of 22 wards of Lalitpur Sub Metropolitan City, its main working area. The total population was established at 2793 dogs. Animal Nepal believes this survey will be instrumental to carefully measure the outcomes of its ongoing Humane Dog Management Programme.

This report is on Nepalgunj, which is where many donkey and mules arrive from India, and are bred, bought and sold. These animals carry goods up the mountains as well as work at brick kilns across the country. Brick donkeys travel with their owners by truck across the country to Kathmandu brick kilns, where they work during the dry season (December – May). After the season ends, they return to Nepalgunj, where they are either sold or kept until the next season starts.

AWNN in 2011 conducted a research into contemporary training methods of working elephants used in the government’s Elephant Breeding Center in Sauraha, Chitwan. Researchers Manoj Gautam and Santosh Khatiwada found that ritualized training continues despite the introduction of humane, evidence based training methods by WWF. The present training methods result in physical and emotional trauma among elephant calves.
