If you have not already know about the dog abondoning case of Pulau Ketam recently. Then read on.
I was shocked when I first read the news from TheStar newspaper about Plight of the Swamp Dogs. Pulau Ketam residents had trapped some 400 dogs and transported them to Pulau Tengah to ease the stray dog population on their island. FYI, the island which these dogs have been transported to have no food and water and left to fend for themselves.
It has been reported that some of the dogs had died of starvation, and those that are alive ate the carcasses. Holy dogs! Can you imagine that?! Dogs usually dun eat their own kind, they may might and kill each other, but not eat them. I guess it’s the natural instinct of a nature to react that way to be alive.
It is an extremely sad case that some human have not thought of the consequences of doing so. It’s also been reported that they dun meant to be cruel to them. But wait a second, doesn’t anyone think/rate/check if Pulau Ketam is a suitable place for a life being to stay? Or was it a selfish act just wanting to clear those dogs from the place they lived and not cared what would happen next? Tell me about it.
In my opinion, this is not exactly a good idea to transport the dogs to an island with no food and water?! If they had temporary transport to an island nearby with food and water, it’s not exactly a good idea too. Why? Because those dogs are not neuterred nor spayed and can reproduce fast. Let’s do some calculation.
Let’s say the island lives 400 dogs, which is 200 bitches and 200 dogs and each female dogs produces 5 pups in average. A female dogs may be on heat twice a year.
( 200 bitches * 2 times a year * 5 pups ) + 200 bitches + 200 dogs
= 2000 + 200 + 200
= 2400 bitches and pups all together
Okay..my example here is not exactly accurate but it’s just to give you a rough idea on the amount of dogs living on the island after a year. So, how about let’s say 5 years later? It will be a few more times than the amount we have above because a female puppy starts to be on heat when they are about 6 months old(some may be earlier) and they could be pregnant from then. So, what we need to do is actually neuter/spay, yes, I repeat, n e u t e r / s p a y them and not DUMP them to HELL and just leave it.
Right now, thanks to volunteers and Furry Friend Farms for helping to save these powerless dogs. Check out the Pulau Ketam Rescue Mission or you may click here to follow the updates of it or check how you can help them out too.
