Village residents in Punta Baja, Rizal are seeking the help of authorities against “stray dogs” suspected to be attacking and killing their young domesticated goya cows.
Netizen Ailyn Bruce, who posted photos of the two dead calves on the Rizal Tambayan Facebook page Monday night, told Palawan News that two of their goya calves were attacked and killed by at least two stray dogs same day around 2 a.m. at Purok Liwayway, Barangay Punta Baja.
She said they went to the barangay to report the incident to prevent more attacks.
Bruce said it was not the first attack on record in their area.
“Madami na rin na mga goya na baka ang kinakain lang nila lamang loob. Mga asong gala. Hindi namin kilala kung kaninong mga aso,” she said.
“Hindi ko lang po alam kung pumunta ang iba sa barangay kasi kami pumunta para mag-reklamo,” she added.
On her post, other residents in Punta Baja are commenting that prior to the incident, two young calves by another resident were also attacked with their bellies chewed open.
One said someone witnessed how the stray dogs pounced on a young calf and bit its belly.
They said barangay officials should help on how to resolve the problem before more juvenile cows are attacked and killed.
