The dog catcher of Boracay, Jun Jun Mendoza pointedly denied the allegation by 2 Swiss nationals that he caught stray dogs and butchered and sold them.
This was exposed by Town Council Member Dante Pagsuguiron, Committee Chairman of Agriculture at the Session Wednesday morning, October 23.
This was after the allegation from the 2 Swiss nationals against Mendoza was discussed during a privilege speech at the session.
According to the Councilman, he had started the investigation or the questioning on Mendoza, and the dog catcher had denied wrongdoing.
Regarding this, Pagsuguiron had allegedly given instruction to Mendoza to take good care of caught stray dogs and to feed them correctly and that the dogs should be at the dog pound according to an Ordinance.
Because of the incident, the Councilman decided to call on the Island Administrator, Municipal Officer, and dog catchers in the island for a Committee hearing.
This is to find whether it is correct to implement the ordinance regarding stray dogs in Boracay since if a dog catcher does what was in the allegation, there will be injustice. According to the Councilman, this should be set straight.
