Massive neutering, spaying operations set in Panglao

Sunday, August 25, 2013


Saving Panglao island and its tourists from the risks of rabies gets complicated as authorities plan to implement an island wide rabies mass neutering and spaying of dogs.

Dr. Stella Marie Lapiz said this is to control a burgeoning dog population and isolate identified stray dogs with the authorities have noted living in some uninhabited areas of the island.

Set to be implemented with a private and public partnership with non-government organization called Humane Society International, the move is also in relation to an alarming increase in dog bites recorded in Panglao Island alone.

On the activity, authorities would conduct house to house dog neutering and spaying, (except for dogs nurtured for breeding purposes) which will render dogs incapable of reproduction.

Authorities also hope this could reduce the exponential increase in dog population, while separate operations are set for dog registration, vaccination, stray dog population management as well as the spread of responsible pet ownership (RPO) information.

In Bohol, a provincial ordinance on rabies has been strengthened with an executive order from the governor implementing the Paralegal System to enforce responsible dog ownership and empower communities to implement the penalties set for failure to abide by the mandates of PRO.

Since January to mid-July, there have been 12 recorded cases of dog biting here, three of which have been positively confirmed to be from rabid dogs, according to sources at the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPV).

Of the 12 cases too, some could not be confirmed as some of the biting animals could not be subjected for rabies confirmatory laboratory tests.

Several biting animals often end up killed, depriving authorities of the proper confirmatory tests, Provincial Veterinarian and Bohol Rabies Prevention and Elimination Program action officer Dr. Lapiz said.

In cases like this when the animal is not available for confirmatory tests, we immediately tag the case as rabies suspect to be safe, she added.

Seeing this as a major setback in the anti-rabies campaign especially when the problem is right smack into the top tourism destination here, local advocates hope the island-wide dog population control in Panglao will contain the threat of rabies that dogs in the island could be carrying all along.

Of the 12 cases too, seven of them happened in Dauis town, on the northern part of the island. Five of the remaining cases happened in Panglao, specifically in the areas where there is a huge tourist population.

In Dauis, one bite case, specifically one of the three bite cases in Mayacabac proved to be from a positive rabid dog. The bite cases involve one in Poblacion, 3 in Mayacabac, one in Songculan, one in Totolan and another in San Isidro.

In Panglao, documented bit cases include two in Sitio Das-ag, Poblacion, which proved to be positively from a rabi dog, another suspected case in Poblacion and two suspected cases in Doljo.

With cases clearly more than enough to suspect a threat, the OPV then sent its workers to conduct focused group discussions in Panglao, upon seeing the bite incidence tracking, Dr Lapiz reported.

Generally the activity aims to determine the presence and ecology of feral dogs in Panglao Island, determine their presence and exact location, get an estimated population of feral dogs and know the attitude of people towards these dogs as well as learn the feeding habits and sources of food of these dogs.

there will be no feral dogs if all dog owners are responsible owners. :(

gibalewala intawon ang mga mings.  hinoon, less damaging kay magkainunsa, di man makadalidali ug paak ug tawo ang feral cats.  they hide when they can, sleeping their hunger and thirst away.

:( sad.

here are hopes that katarina has been claimed by another family who are taking care of her as they ought.

sometimes, some cats leave their abode when they believe that they have become superfluous.  di na mobalik kun mahiluna ra sila sa ilang bag-ong environment.  i hope that is what happened to katarina.

Nice unta ug ubang towns sa Bohol mobuhat pud ug ingon ani. Naka witness jud ko ug iro giligsan lang sa way puangod nga driver diha sa may salazar st. sa Tagbilaran. Nalooy jud ko naghunahuna sa reaction sa usa ka iro kay perti niyang hilak ug dagan unya pagbalik niya kay gadala na siya ug laing kauban nga iro. Sa wa pa to ligsi sa dumptruck ,nga babae pa jud nagdrive perting duwa duwa sa duha ka iro medyo identical sila murag igsoon dagway to. Wala jud mo slow down ang babae as in iya jud to gituyo. Na shock jud ko nag tan aw nga nakahilak ko sa porma sa iro nagkirig kirig. Unya sa may Maribojoc pud dapit diha poy walay puangod nga giligsan ang inahan nga iring ug iyang mga anak. Dihay usa ka survivor looy jud kaayo kay gaatong siya sa iyang pamilya. Iyang mama gakirig kirig pa. Wa ko kahunong kay dihay nagsunod pud nako paspas kaayo pero naapsan nako tong maoy nagligis. Mga way kasing kasing jud ning motuyo ug ligis ug iro ug iring oi.
Akong mga iring ako jud ipalaygit.

but there's hope.  karon makakiha na ta.  kuhaon dayon ang plate number sa sakyanan.  remember republic act 8485 or the animal welfare act of 1998?  it has been amended and strengthened further with house bill 6893 of june 2013.

under republic act 8485, the strongest punishment animal abusers could face are a P5,000 fine and two years in jail, while the lowest is a P1,000 fine and six months in jail.  with the new law (house bill 6893) the maximum penalty would be a P250,000 fine, with a corresponding three-year jail term, and a minimum of P30,000 fine and six months imprisonment.

our kind can do much, do it be little by little, raqz.  magsugod lang kog distribute ug flyers about this law sa among barangay sa cebu city.  maayo gani kay amigo namo ang buotan nga barangaya captain.  hinayhinay lang, kay morag gabantay pod siya sa dog slaughterer of a policeman in the neighborhood.

at times nga di ta makakiha, publicity against the culprit is the better option.  kun magkalisod pa gyod, wish the culprit some karma from somewhere.

if they only knew...

usa ray iring nako ang di pusakal, pero technically, pusakal kay napunitan ra man ni nako after 2 weeks nga nakamatikod ko nga adto ra ilawom sa parked car nagpuyo, morag ilaga ang panit.  nakurat tawon ang vet pagdala nako.  kitten pa diay to nga napasagdan, grabe ang anemia.  arang dakoa, wa nako damha nga kitten pa diay.  mestizo persian ug british shorthair kuno to, mao nga higante ang gawas.

anyway, all but one sa akong mga iring ordinary (domestic breed, pusakal).  daghan mangayo kay mga gwapo/gwapa man.  mora kuno ug di pusakal.  lesson: any cat will look real good as long as it is well cared for.  one more lesson: sige palit mo dinhag 50k nga iring nga may breed kunohay.  what for?  ang gasto for this one cat would equal saving 20 homeless ones.
