SIBU: Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) chairman Clarence Ting has reminded dog owners to keep their pets inside their compounds.

He issued the reminder after two SMC dog catchers were bitten by dogs on June 28 while working. The injured workers were sent to the hospital for treatment.

The (council’s) dog team driver in his thirties was injured on the arm while another worker in his late fifties sustained an injury on his ankle and was hospitalised, he explained.

The driver was given outpatient treatment, Ting added.

He warned of more tragic happenings from dog bites if owners continued to let their pets roam the streets.
