The media’s all hoo-haa because we actually have NEWS!(Well, you have to admit, we did have mundane, not-so-impressive things to read about the last few days). However, yes, BAM! Front page on the Brunei Times – there it is for all the world to see!
Obviously this is not the first time that the issue of stray dogs has been raised. Of course it wasn’t very attractive back then when teenagers (I suspect) were talking about it in the Opinion Page of the Borneo Bulletin and no sad pictures of school boy in hospital gowns occupy half a page on the country’s biggest (in size) newspaper.
I patiently await what the Government has to say about this.
It opens a whole load of debates concerning religious, moral, economic and ethical treatment of animals. Policy makers are pacing in their boots, well, at least they should be.
