You're right, DeepakCool, strays disturb us but they're not to blame for this. It's not their fault they have to live on streets. They only do what is normal for a dog - they bark, they breed, they hunt mooving objects (like your bike). Those who are to blame are the persons who abandoned them, and the authorities for doing too little in order to clean the streets. I think the best thing you should do is to contact the authorities to come and capture them. I don't know how things work in your country, but in my country the authorities decided to spay all the strays and let them live on streets. This is not a healthy decision, but is more than nothing. At least they won't breed any more, and eventually their number will decrease.

Firstly, do you know that they are strays? Some people let their dogs run loose, and I can tell you that the dog's I'm watching now sometimes can bark loudly at night (only when someone comes home or if the neighbors are having a party). If they are strays, contact your local shelter or animal control. They should take care of them, especially if they chase you. Sadly, people don't know how to care for dogs properly and we end up with strays. Hopefully these dogs will be able to be trained and adopted to a loving home.

Hi DeepakCool!. I never feel stray dog irritating, I think its not thats dog fault its because dog owner is not responsible by not spay their dog and let them breed irresponsibility. in my city it will rarely see stray dog in the street because its not safe for them to play in the street and a lot of possibility they will hurt by people who don't like them or steal. So you can easily ride a bike without disturbing by any thing if you aware by motorcycle or car.

First of all, how did they become stray? It is because their previous owners dumped them there? What you do is to call the SPCA. They should be able to capture them and hopefully rehome them as well. Culling them is the last time, anyone should consider.
