Animal rights advocate Jowelle De Souza wants the Government to establish an animal police unit to enforce mandatory spaying and neutering of stray animals across T&T.
Speaking at a press conference held at her salon in San Fernando on Monday, De Souza said there should be stiffer penalties for those ill-treating animals.
De Souza called on Police Commissioner Gary Griffith to assist in reducing T&T’s stray animal population by establishing such a unit.
