Choma to register over 13,000 dogs

Choma Municipal Council will embark on a dog registration exercise effective April this year to control the over 13,000 pet population.

Council public relations officer Ramona Phiri  said in an interview in Choma yesterday that the local authority had set aside K18,000  for the exercise.

She said the money would be spent on purchasing dog collars and tags.

Ms Phiri said dog owners within the town area would only be allowed to own a maximum of two dogs once the exercise was completed.

She noted that currently the town had too many stray dogs that pose a danger to the general public and warned that after the registration exercise the council would would destroy all stray dogs.

The Council would also penalize dog owners whose pets would be found straying after the registration exercise as the identification collars were meant to help secure the dogs.

Ms. Phiri added that the local authority was working in partnership with the Veterinary Department in the district who will be vaccinating the dogs during the registration exercise.

    Choma M. Council at war with PF govt. The Council is refusing to follow the directive on single business levy. The Council is charging K1,750 for a business levy contrary to government directive in the circular of 2012 concerning the same to lower cost of doing business. Choma council is making PF unpopular. The Council is fighting the Government. Ministers of Commerce and Local Govt please look into this matter.
