S'wak bans inter-district movement of dogs, roadblocks to be set up - Nation

MIRI: A ban on the movement of dogs has been imposed in 10 districts throughout Sarawak.

The ban starts today and will be effective for the next 30 days.

The decision on the ban was made by the Sarawak Cabinet via the State Natural Disaster Relief Committee as a way to try to contain the spread of the rabies outbreak.

A circular has been issued to the state police seeking their help in setting up roadblocks to enforce the ban.

The Star managed to obtain a copy of the directive. It stated that the police had a right to stop anyone from transporting dogs out of their respective districts.

The districts covered by the ban are Kuching, Lundu, Padawan, Samarahan, Serian, Sri Aman, Sarikei, Sibu, Miri and Marudi.

The police are authorised by the directive to seize any dogs they found being transported in vehicles.

Those who defy the ban could be penalised, the directive warned.

Sarawak is facing a rabies outbreak that has hit the entire 1,000km length from Kuching to Miri.
