IPOH: The Manjung Municipal Council has called off its dog-shooting operation in the district.
Perak local government committee chairman Datuk Nolee Ashilin Mohd Radzi said the exercise was initially planned but it was not held.
Nolee said the municipal council will not carry out the operations and would look for other means to address the issue of stray dogs.
“All local councils have met on the matter. There will be no operations to catch or shoot the animals.
“We are trying to find better ways to deal with this issue, ” she said when contacted Tuesday (July 7).
The Star earlier reported that Malaysian Animal Welfare Association founder S. Mukunan would be filing an ex-parte application after sighting a municipal council circular on a stray dog-shooting exercise from July 1 to July 4 and from July 6 to July 11.
