Bushenyi: Residents seek compensation for animals lost to stray dogs

Residents of Katura, Mashonga Kibazi and Ryabaganju in Kyamuhunga sub-county, Bushenyi district have called upon government to compensate the loss of their goats, sheep, pigs and chicken to stray dogs that have beenĀ terrorizing their locality.

Following public outcry of these residents, security personnel from the district led by RDC Robert Atuhairwe on Thursday held a security meeting with the affected villages to discuss the way forward on what should be done in dealing with the stray dogs.

During this meeting, Nuwe Sula of Katura Mashonga, said it’s sad that ever since late November this year, about 52 goats and sheep’s of residents have been killed.

Nuwe added that recently the wild animals attacked a woman in Nyakahanga B, Ryamarembo, and injured her but UWA officials have not compensated her.

RDC Atuhairwe said as government, they are mandated to protect people and their properties and they will not sit and watch as residents cry foul.

Atuhairwe said they have embarked on hunting the stray dogs with police where he asked local leaders to form village security teams to help the police in search of the stray dogs.

Speaking to our reporter, a section of the residents who lost their animals asked government to help them and provide something for them since they have been left with nothing to feed their families.

The affected residents also asked security agencies to deploy enough security to their villages as they live in fear ever since the wild animals attacked them.
