Mayors team-up with Agriculture, Adelup to round-up strays

by Krystal Paco

Guam - Hoping to get a grip on the island's out of control stray animal population, village mayors are partnering with the Department of Agriculture and the Governor's Office.

According to Yigo mayor Rudy Matanane, the three will be meeting on December 10 to discuss possible solutions.

"It's very important," he said. "That's one the biggest problems here in the villages - kids getting chased getting bitten people getting bitten if we don't do anything about it it's going to get worse."

As we've been reporting, the island only has three dog catchers with the Department of Agriculture.

Matanane notes that outsourcing dog catchers may be an option as one company has expressed interest in doing so for $30 per dog.

The meeting kicks off at 10 a.m. on Tuesday at the Barrigada Mayors Office.
