Saints Edge JMC to Keep Clean Sheet

Authorities in Kabale district have embarked on an operation to spray poison in garbage in the municipality to get rid of stray domestic animals.

Kabale District Veterinary Officer, shop Dr. Bernard Kabagambe, capsule says that they are targeting animals like dogs, stuff cows, sheep and goats that feed on garbage that have become a nuisance in the town.

He says that the targeted animals have caused accidents and others are vectors of human diseases especially dogs.

Kabagambe says that animals have put lives of people in the district at risks of contracting disease and the best way to reduce the risk is to kill them.

However, a section of the residents in the district have opposed the move saying that the authorities should instead impound the animals and later fine the owners other than poisoning because the poison might instead kill the street children who also feed from the rubbish bins.

Other residents say that when the animals die, some people may unknowingly eat their meat which could lead to death.

Kabale District Spokesperson, Jenifer Ssibo Rukundo, says that, they are targeting neither street kids nor any other humans but aiming at reducing animals loitering in the town.
