Police from the Jembrana Police precinct undertaking roadside inspections at the Pura Rambut Siwi rest area in Mendoyo on Monday, July 7, 2014, managed to thwart an effort to smuggle 10 dogs from Java to Denpasar.

Bali’s strict anti-rabies law absolutely prohibits the import of pets into Bali.

The operation to stop the illegal smuggling of pets into Bali was led directly by the deputy head of the Jembrana police command Police Commissioner Hagnyono, the head for police operations in Jembrana Police Commissioner Ketut Sukarta, the head of the Jembrana traffic police Gede Sumadra Kerthiawan and the head of the Criminal Investigation division for Jembrana Gusti Made Sudarma Putra.

As reported by Metro Bali, the roadside inspection resulted in the discovery of 10 dogs hidden in a van with Jakarta registration plates and driven by Kioe Hasan (58) of Jakarta.

Taken into quarantine were 2 Rottweilers, 3 Bulldogs, 3 Chihuahuas and 3 German Shepherds.

Past confiscations of dogs being smuggled into Bali have resulted in the animals euthanization.In  The killing of the pets brought a loud public outcry.

Police say the animals had no identification papers. The driver of the vehicle told police the animals were given to him to bring to Bali by a friend in Yogyakarta.

The Deputy-chief of the Jembrana Police Commissioner Hagnyono said his office would investigate how the dogs passed through the port of Gilimanuk without detection or if, perhaps, they were smuggled into Bali by some other route.

Five days after their confiscation, what has happened to the confiscated animals has become something of a mystery.

Police in Jembrana told Metrobali.com that the dogs had been handed over to quarantine officials, Meanwhile, the head of the quarantine office in Gilimanuk, Nyoman Budiarta,told the press the matter is in the hands of Denpasar officials. But, when the head of the quarantine office in Denpasar was contacted by telephone by reporters he told the press to check with the quarantine office in Gilimanuk.

When Metrobali.com pressed the head of the Denpasar Quarantine Office, Bagus Eka Ludra, he initially tried to sidestep the issue, referring the press back to the Gilimanuk office. When, however, he was confronted by the fact that Gilimanuk officials claimed the matter was now in Denpasar’s hands, Ludra relented, saying: “We are still gathering explanations and trying to determine who owns the dogs. If the animals cannot be sent back to Java, then they must be destroyed. I hope the owners understand this.”
