Socio-environmental impacts of free ranging dogs in Chile
Challenges for animal welfare, biodiversity conservation, public health and policy.
Donde: Sala PES2005, UC Davis
Cuando: Martes 31 de Mayo 2016
Hora : 2PM a 3PM - PDT (5PM Chile)
International press has reported the poor living and sanitary conditions of unattended dogs in Chile's main cities. Scientists and government institutions have stated that more than 150 native species have been severely affected. Last year, 59.000 people reported attacks, and free-ranging dogs are considered today the main predator of cattle among small subsistence growers. However, there is still a lack of public awareness about the diverse implications of this problem and an effective regulatory framework that controls and reduces the canine population in Chile. From a scientific and policy perspective, this seminar will offer an analysis of the current conditions, projections, and necessary technical and legal instruments to face the challenges of this issue.
