The provincial board has called on municipal government officials to strictly implement Republic Act 9482 or the Anti-Rabies Law.
Board Member Juan Antonio Alvarez, author of the resolution, said his office has received complaints about stray dogs particularly in tourist spots in the province.
“Marami na kasi tayong nababalitaan tungkol sa mga stray dogs. May batas tayo kaya pinapaalalahanan natin ang mga LGUs natin na i-implement ng maayos like sa El Nido at Port Barton, mga tourist destinations,” he said.
Alvarez also said there are also instances that vehicular accidents are caused by dogs freely roaming on the streets.
“Marami na tayong stray dogs, hindi na nacocontrol ang populasyon nila sa tingin ko mas maganda ‘yong hulihin sila, o kung hindi at ‘yong dog spaying, neuter, ipakapon para hindi na dumami,” he said.
