Update: 11th October 2025. The Penang. Chief minister announced Friday that the culling will stop from today while they await vaccinations and international support to arrive to assist with the situation. Almost 2000 dogs were killed in a month and only 2 cases of rabies were confirmed.
Today is world animal day. Not only wild animals are endangered. Our own island strays are endangered. This post is to raise some awareness.
A few cases of rabies were found in Penang and an issue was sent out to cull ALL stray dogs. According to expert advice, this is not the correct way to deal with the spread of the disease. Vaccinating the dogs have been proven to be more effective to prevent the spread of the disease.
Stop KILLING! Start vaccinating. Educate yourself and choose the safest option.
