Board members of Saga (myself included) met yesterday with representatives of the Town Council and the Ministry of Health and it was agreed that these three groups will work together to humanely deal with the problem of stray dogs on the island. The animals will not be poisoned but euthanaised.

The immediate issue is to deal with the sick, injured or aggresive animals, that are on the increase.

However any dog owners in San Pedro reading this board should remember that dogs are not allowed to roam freely on the island. The laws of Belize do not differentiate between a dog wearing a collar when defining a stray and so please keep your pets in your yard.

Yes,that's great news. Euthanasia is more humane.

I am so relieved to hear this great news! Everyone's opinion does count and I am thankful to those people who took the time out of their busy lives to sit down and post constructive ideas and concerns. I guess the next step would be to ask the Belize government to repeal their law permitting the use of strychnine for euthanasia. My friend and I are bringing two large suitcases full of vet supplies to SAGA on Nov. 4th. We will also donate $$.

Kudos goes to SAGA for all their efforts!
