WINNIPEG – A Manitoba indigenous leader says culls of stray dogs in remote communities are a necessary measure when people’s safety is at risk.

Derek Nepinak (NEE’-pih-nahk), head of the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, is responding to the death of a woman last weekend who was mauled by a pack of dogs in Little Grand Rapids.

Community leaders are planning to kill numerous stray dogs, and media reports say council is planning to offer residents 25 dollars a head for each animal shot.

Rebecca Norman, a director with a dog rescue agency called Manitoba Mutts, agrees a cull is necessary.

But she says preventative measures could also be taken to reduce the number of stray and abandoned dogs.

Manitoba Mutts has a mobile spay-and-neuter clinic, but Norman says the cost of getting into remote communities such as Little Grand Rapids can be high.
