Animal activist: Establish unit to deal with strays

An­i­mal rights ad­vo­cate Jow­elle De Souza wants the Gov­ern­ment to es­tab­lish an an­i­mal po­lice unit to en­force manda­to­ry spay­ing and neu­ter­ing of stray an­i­mals across T&T.

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.
