Provincial Government Plans to Ask all District Governments in West Java to Ban Wild Boar – Dog Fight
Posted on 12:13 October 30th, 2017


The provincial government plans to ask all regencies in West Java to ban wild boar – dog fights (locally known as Dugong) as a response of West Java government to various media reports on the Dugong.

"Wild boar – dog fight is a long-standing tradition in West Java, but if the tradition has a bad influence and a negative impact on social life, the tradition should be eliminated and even forgotten," Ade Sukalsah, head of publication section of the West Java Government told bbc.com

"West Java provincial government asked district governments to issue a regulation prohibiting Dugong performances, “ Ade said.

The bbc.com also quoted a statement of Director of Wildlife Investigation at the Scorpion Foundation, Marison Guciano saying the wild boar – dog fight must be stopped because it is an animal cruelty.

"The wild boar – dog fight teaches our children and our young generation becoming increasingly insensitive to cruelty and violence against animals," said Marison.
