Malaysian states stop culling stray dogs as no new rabies detected

Kuala Lumpur (dpa) – Malaysia’s state of Penang on Friday stopped culling stray dogs after no new rabies cases were detected, ending the programme in three northern states following the resurgence of the deadly virus in August.

“There will be no more culling of stray dogs in the state,” Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said, adding that no new rabies infections were detected among dogs in the state since September 15.

But Lim said the vaccination programme for dogs will continue.
