All a complainant needs to do is fill his name and address, check the violation from a list , date, time and place of violation and hand it over to the barangay chairman. Three days later, he should get results.
"With ordinance in place, anybody could easily lodge a complaint against a dog-owner who refused to be responsible with his pet," says provincial veterinarian Stella Marie Lapiz.
Dr. Lapiz, who is also the action officer for the Bohol Rabies Prevention and Eradication Program (BRPEP) said anytime soon, anti-rabies advocates would be leading the drive against dog-owners who would neglect the provisions of the ordinance.
Lapiz refers to the Provincial Ordinance 2007-17 which the provincial junta has passed to legislate a move to strategically confront rabies on a province-wide basis.
