The Anambra Government has charged owners of unvaccinated dogs to restrain them from straying and roaming about the streets.

The government warned that if such dogs bite a person, its owner would be prosecuted.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Forster Ihejiofor, gave the warning on Tuesday during the launch of the 2022 free Anti-Rabies Vaccination Campaign in Awka.

The event was organised to mark this year’s World Rabies Day in the state.

Ihejiofor said that the vaccination of infected domestic animals, which were major carriers, remains the best way to prevent fatalities. (NAN)
