Alvarez to summon vet on deaths of sheep-A A +A
Saturday, September 29, 2012
VICE Governor Genaro Alvarez said Friday that he will ask Provincial Veterinarian Dr. Renante Decena on Monday to explain the loss of about 400 sheep at the Provincial Government farms in Murcia and in Sagay City.
"The explanation of the governor that about 400 sheep died after they were eaten by dogs gives us more reason to inquire on the whereabouts of the livestock," Alvarez pointed out.
He said that they want to be assured that the livestock acquired by the Provincial Government through loans pegged at P200 million won't just go to the dogs. The caretakers should take safety and precautionary measures to avert such attacks by the dogs, he added.
Alvarez earlier said that he will ask the Provincial Board Committee on Agriculture to conduct an accounting of the sheep and cattle purchased by the government.
But he said that he will immediately call the Decena to appear before his office on Monday after he heard of such deaths of the sheep.
Meanwhile, Alvarez said that he will pursue his plans to make the second floor of the frontage area of the Cyber Center a dormitory that will cater to out-of-town students and are studying in Bacolod City.
The barangay officials and the school teachers belonging to the Negros Occidental Teachers Federation (NOTF), will be given space at the Cyber Center, according to Alvarez.
He said that the construction of the P450 million Cyber Center is expected to be completed in March or April 2013.
The rates for the rentals will be determined by the Provincial Board, Alvarez said. (Teresa D. Ellera)
