Stray dogs spark fear
dogs that roam around Bandar Putra Kulai and rummage through rubbish bins have a resident fearing for his safety.
Muhammad Amin Razak, 55, said the number of dogs near his home in Jalan Nuri 27 seemed to be increasing.
“The problem persists even after the Kulai Municipal Council sent dog catchers here,” he said, adding that he had seen the dog catchers making their rounds in the housing area.
“The stray dogs sensed the dog catchers and fled.
“They pose a danger to pedestrians because stray dogs can be unpredictable.
“They may appear harmless at first, but they may turn aggressive when they feel threatened.”
He said the stray dogs barked at schoolchildren.
“The children were fine as they outnumbered the dogs.
“Some of the dogs look for food in rubbish bins outside our homes.”
He said a dog had entered the compound of an elderly neighbour.
“She is old, so she got scared. Luckily, her front grille was locked and the dog left when she banged the grille door with a broom.”
