The chief of the Livestock and Animal Health Office for Bali (Disnakeswan) for Bali, Putu Sumantra, sees the problem of trash management in Bali as one of the major obstacles to controlling rabies.

Quoted by, Sumantra said, “Trash that is strewn around becomes food for stray dogs allowing them to continue to exists in the community.”

Speaking in Denpasar on Thursday, July 24, 2014, Sumantra said many of the stray dogs that escape mass vaccination program carried out by the government is due to the difficulties officiasl encounter in corralling stray dogs. The stray and semi-feral dogs found in most Balinese communities manage to live from trash left uncovered on the side of the road.

“Because of this, we hope the regencies and metropolitan administrations in Bali will control trash because that will support the control of rabies in the region,” said Sumantra.

Sumantra added that the dog population in Bali is on the increase because of the failure of the Balinese to raise their dogs properly.

“The correct way,” he said, "is not to allow dogs to roam and not to throw unwanted female dogs out, abandoning them on the roadsides. These dogs mature and have puppies adding to the dog population explosion.”

Commenting separately, he said the fifth phase of mass rabies vaccination program in Bali has successfully inoculated 275,796 dogs in 3,429 banjars across 9 regencies. Adding: “This is the data through July 22nd and we still have some days left tp achieve the targeted 325,00 rabies vaccination by July 31st."

He said, if the target is not achieved by July 31st, the government will continue to vaccinate through the end of the year.
