Animal activist: Establish unit to deal with strays

Speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence held at her sa­lon in San Fer­nan­do on Mon­day, De Souza said there should be stiffer penal­ties for those ill-treat­ing an­i­mals.

De Souza called on Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith to as­sist in re­duc­ing T&T’s stray an­i­mal pop­u­la­tion by es­tab­lish­ing such a unit.
