We would like to see that the population of stray dogs to be reduced by the method
sterilization & euthanization. This is because this is the only way of reducing stray dogs
which is humane and sustainable to the environment.
The Brunei Municipal should be aware of this method and make an effort to implement this method in Brunei since it is now widely used in a lot of countries such as India, Thailand and even in the Europe countries.
In order to see that the Brunei Municipal to be aware of this alternative method to
overcome the serious problem of stray dogs in Brunei, I will give a proposal letter to all of
the Municipal Boards in Brunei (BSB, Tutong and Belait). In this letter, I have put in
suggestions and the statistics of the survey that my group has conducted during the third
and fourth week of September 2006. Also included in the proposal letter are the steps
needed by the Municipal in order to make this method possible in Brunei where the steps I
have included in the letter have been taken from New Delhi on the website
Of course to do this method, a big budget will be needed and so this could be a barrier in Brunei. To overcome this barrier, we can get sponsorship from the SPCA (The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals International) or get the people of Brunei to give a hand by donations for example.
Such as in India they have managed to do this method for free for its people due to the
sponsorship they have gotten from NGO\u2019s such as the WSD (It is a non-profit trust
dedicated to helping street dogs which was set up and registered with the Government of
India in 1985. WSD are recognised by the Animal Welfare Board of India (Ministry of
Environment & Forests, Government of India) and associated with the Royal Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) UK. WSD have been carrying out a mass
sterilisation programme for stray dogs, following the recommendations of the World Health
Organisation on rabies eradication and dog population control since in the 1989)
Even though removal or killing of stray dogs seems to be the most obvious method of controlling the population, but it has actually proved to be completely useless. This is because even when large numbers of dogs are killed, the conditions that sustain dog populations remain unchanged. Therefore, from the environment aspects this is a very suitable method to be used in Brunei.
From the social aspects, this method is beneficial to the public. Due to the reasons that
barking and howling which occur during dog-fights takes place during their mating time, so
with sterilisation the problem disappears. Also since the testosterone levels come down
after sterilisation, male dogs become less aggressive and the female stray dogs are usually
aggressive only when they have puppies to protect, so with sterilisation this problem ends as
well. This information has been taken from the website
