The Dog And The Sea

They always have a stray dog population that is out of control. Whether it is Pulau Ketam or Sungai Besar or here in Pantai Redang in Sekinchan.

Fishermen feed stray dogs with raw fish when the boats come in. The wharf area attracts so many mangy dogs. It is heartbreaking to see them. They are silent victims.

With Sekinchan becoming an affluent area, I hope some of the rich and educated locals will come back to start a shelter and NGO to educate the fishermen on responsible animal ownership or to take care of sick ones and to provide spaying and neutering. The vicious cycle can end.
