Bentong MP calls for clear dog-catching rules after elderly man’s death

THE government and local councils must come up with clear guidelines for dog-catching to prevent more untoward incidents, Bentong MP Young Syefura Othman said today. 

She was speaking following the case of an elderly man who died trying to protect his pet dog from being captured by the Bentong Municipal Council. Huang Yunhong, 85, had fallen into a drain while tussling with an enforcement officer.
