By Benjamin Flowers: The Dangriga Town Council, this week, announced that it would be carrying out activities to eradicate stray dogs and cats in the municipality, but today the council announced it had cancelled those plans to due public outcry.

The eradication was to be held on Thursday and Friday, in collaboration with the Public Health Department however, the council issued a follow-up statement saying: “The general public is hereby informed that the Dangriga Town Council has decided not to continue with the eradication of stray dogs this week due to mounting concerns from certain sectors of the society. We take into consideration concerns coming from the Humane Society and animal rights group.”

Our newsroom spoke with representatives from a humane society, who explained that animal eradications done by municipal bodies employ the use of strychnine poison which gives the animals a slow, painful, and gruesome death.

The news of the decision to cancel the event has been well received, with many taking to social media to applaud the council’s decision to take the concerns of humane societies into account.
