Dozens of Dogs in Nusa Penida Culled


Government of Klungkung regency, Bali, culled dozens of stray dogs in Nusa Penida to prevent the spread of rabies.

“We did the culling gradually,” said Head of Husbandry and Fishery Technical Operation Unit of Nusa PenidaDistrict, I Nyoman Sangging, on Saturday.

The culling was done in the morning until the evening, either by being shot or poisoned.

According to him, the dog population in the island is getting out of control. “Many residents of Nusa Penida bring dogs from outside the island. Many boats to Nusa Penuda also contributed influx of dogs from outside the island,” he said.

Besides culling, the local government also provides anti- rabies vaccine. “People can bring their dog to our place to get routine vaccine for four to six months,” said Sangging.

Meanwhile, Agus Harta Wijaya Kusuma, a resident of Nusa Penida, said that in recent days the stray dogs had begun to eat the residents’ pets.

“In addition, many carcasses of stray dogs on the streets because they were hit by motorbike. Not a few riders also were fell as they were hit by stray dogs,” he said.
