On this night, I have to post this act done by the Jabatan Daerah! I am absolutely disgusted by what I just saw!
Jabatan Daerah (the name is on their van) just came close to 12am (24 May) and poisoned 5 strays dogs in a commercial area in Muara district. These 5 dogs are being fed by volunteers everyday and all 5 of them females, have just been sterilised last week! If there is no new dog being abandoned at this area, these 5 dogs will not multiply! This is what CAS has been trying hard to do, to stop the overpopulation, controlling unwanted litter of puppies.
But again and again, times after times, we are always knocked down by cases of poisoning at our feeding sites and every time those dogs that we sterilised are always poisoned! Moreover, these dogs are friendly and they do no harm to human beings. They did not choose to be strays, we humans made them became strays because we abandoned them!
Again we want to emphasise, poisoning is not the way to control strays overpopulation! All because a new restaurant in this area just opened and want these dogs out! Come on, these dogs are here before you!
And also, moving a pack is not the solution either. Even if we remove this pack, new dogs will be abandoned again so this cycle will just go on and on and on. Human beings are just pushing responsibility to one another! The person who reported on the dogs and people involved in these acts, God is watching.
Though I have heard about poisoning cases in Brunei all the time but tonight was the first time I personally witnessed! Though I did not see the authority throwing the food to the dogs, what I saw was already dogs dying and putting them in the garbage bags. I don’t know what poison they used or if they killed the dogs in another way, no sound no fights. What made me watched from the window was just minimal barking from them and I saw them lying on the ground with men around some of them. The dogs seem to die within minutes. One of the picture if you can see was waiting for the dog to catch its last breath and afterwhich they put the dog in the bag.
We need more voices to stop poisoning! We need more awareness to educate public, STERILISATION IS THE KEY!
POISONING IS ANIMAL CRUELTY!
Whether you like it or not, there are strays everywhere but why can’t human and strays live harmoniously together? Why are human beings so selfish and cruel??
It is very sad to be a stray and we humans are adding on to their misery.…Some of these people are even laughing during this operation.
See these pictures and make your own judgement. The strays have no voice! We need the public to share their views and WHETHER this is how you should treat strays…
SHARE IT and hopefully non of the people in the pictures are anyone you know!
