Monitor roaming animals, livestock owners urged


Captured livestock are kept safe at the Kampar District Council pound.

Kampar District Council wants livestock owners to constantly monitor animals under their care to prevent them from becoming a public nuisance.

Council president Khairul Amir Mohamad Zubir said there were countless complaints about animals wandering around the district.

The animals defecate on the roads and destroy plants as well as endanger motorists.

“The farmers must monitor and control their livestock,” he said at the council pound in Kampar, adding that they recently conducted an operation to catch unguarded livestock where five buffaloes were captured on Aug 3.

“We managed to catch three male and two female buffaloes in Kampung Lawan Kuda, Kopisan Baru and near the Gopeng Matriculation College.

“The compounds and maintenance cost for all five buffaloes is estimated at RM21,950,” he said, adding that the animals would be put up for auction if unclaimed.

Teja assemblyman Sandrea Ng said there were at least 2,216 farm animals in her constituency.

“Since it is a big number, the farmers need to monitor their livestock.

“We have provided about 40 hectares of grassland for rent in Kuala Kampar for the animals to graze.

“Sadly, the response was low. We encourage them to make full use of the area and not let their livestock roam around unsupervised,” she said.
