Village officials told to help contain stray dogs in Kabayan
by Jane B. Cadalig

Stray dogs have no place in a tourist-oriented community.

The local government of Kabayan, Benguet is seeking the cooperation of village officials in implementing the town’s ordinance against stray dogs.

Mayor Gideon Todiano said stray dogs are not good for the image of Kabayan because of its stature as a tourist destination.

“As a tourist community, residents should realize that dogs left roaming are not good for the town. This is why we need the help of barangay officials in implementing our ordinance,” Todiano said.

He said stray dogs pose danger not only to tourists but also to the residents. Aside from the hazards posed by stray dogs, he cited the inconveniences that dog owners will suffer if their pets bite strangers.

Todiano said the town’s ordinance does not ban people from owning a dog; it merely aims to instill responsible dog ownership among the residents.

“It’s not prohibited to own a dog. We just want the owners to be responsible,” he said.

The role of barangays was emphasized during the joint Benguet Provincial Police and Kabayan Municipal Police advisory councils meeting on Sept. 27, where the local police said it needs grassroots support in the implementation of local laws.

Kabayan Police Chief Francis Colas said that in the implementation of the town’s ordinance against stray dogs and other local laws, the barangays are mandated to help the police.
Todiano shared this, saying the role of barangay officials in the implementation of ordinances should not be over emphasized.

“In fact, implementation of ordinances lies with the people themselves. Like in the implementation of our ordinances on liquor and anti-gambling, they should not rely on the police to be the only one implementing them.

We need their obedience to our ordinances,” he said.

The police of Kabayan was told to engage village officials in the implementation of local laws by getting their commitments to help authorities.

“You have to get the commitment of barangays. It would be better to ask them also what they can do to help the police, so that the burden will not be all on you,” Benguet Police Provincial Advisory Council member Henry Dungala said.
