Stop the poisoning

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!


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!
