Treñas bucks ‘mercy killing’ of stray dogs

first_imgMayor Jerry Treñas. IAN PAUL CORRDEO/PN “Waayko pa gani naistoya si Vice (MayorJeffrey Ganzon) kag mga konsehal partisina. We will have to think that out very carefully,” said Treñas. Councilor Jay Treñas, on the otherhand, said under Regulation Ordinance No. 2018-024 (An Ordinance Creating theIloilo City Pound), barangays shall provide temporary impounding/holdingfacility for stray dogs and other animals at large. As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the petitionalready had 7,300 signatories. For the time being, he said, “It isincumbent among owners to be responsible with their dogs.” For now, Treñas said, the immediatelything to do is look for a vehicle that the City Veterinary Office could use forcatching stray dogs as well as a space for a dog pound. But according to Treñas, “I have notyet approved any. We will not do it.” City Beautification Program head NindaAtinado recently sought the City Veterinary Office’s help. She said not onlyhumans but stray dogs, too, were vandalizing ornamental plants that the citygovernment planted at the Iloilo Esplanade and the median strip of the Sen.Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue in Barangay San Rafael, Mandurriao district. Unclaimed stray dogs would beeuthanized by overdosing them with barbiturates. Three days ago, animal lover MikaelaChavez kick-started an online petition (“Stop the Stray Dog Mercy Killing inIloilo City”) right after the City Veterinary Office announced it would roundup stray dogs and kill them for destroying ornamental plants at the IloiloEsplande and elsewhere in the metropolis. “I have not been consulted about thatproposal. I was surprised that was announced without consultation,” he saidyesterday. DOGPOUND According to Dr. Tomas Forteza, cityveterinarian, apprehended stray dogs would be impounded at the city governmentmotorpool on Delgado Street where owners could claim them. “After may salakyan na kag dog pound, then maybe we could start thinkingabout what else to do. We will work on this slowly so that we will be able tocome up with a very good program for pet welfare,” Treñas said. ILOILO City – Just a proposal. Thiswas how Mayor Jerry Treñas described the “mercy killing” of stray dogs here. “If no one shows up to claim the dogsor adopt them, we will do mercy killing. We will put them to sleep,” Forteza. “Dugayna naton gina ayo sa city government nga makapatindog sang fully functionalshelter or city pound. Napasaran na natonini ordinance madugay na pero wala panaka-take into effect,” the city councilor said./PNlast_img read more

Pakistan was penalised five runs twice as their batters ran on to the danger area of the pitch. India dropped five catches but Pakistan did not make them pay as they ended up with a total below par.Read More |Women’s World T20: Mithali Raj guides India to 7-wicket win over PakOpting to field, India started off brilliantly to reduce Pakistan to 30/3. However, Bismah Maroof and Nida Dar, the two experienced players for Pakistan, stepped up to show their mettle. While Maroof played the sheet anchor role, Dar took the attack to the Indian bowlers by hammering offspinner Deepti Sharma for a big six. Dar also benefited from two dropped catches in two overs bowled by Poonam Yadav.Yadav, the legspinner, was again unlucky as Maroof was dropped on 28 as both batters took Pakistan to their best score against India.Read More | India vs West Indies 3rd T20I: India win by 6 wickets, clinch seriesPenalty runs dramaHowever, the start of the 18th over saw some controversy.

After a lengthy discussion between Pakistan skipper Javeria Khan and the umpires, the final total for Pakistan was 133/7, their highest Twenty20 International score ever.After the match ended, skipper Javeria blamed the team’s unprofessionalism for the penalties. “I had a chat. They told me that after warning the players three times, they gave the penalties. It’s unprofessionalism on our part because we were warned. it’s not happened the first time. It’s happened in the Sri Lanka series as well.”Mithali the starIndia, boosted by 10 runs without a ball bowled, started off brilliantly with Mithali and Smriti Mandhana sharing an aggressive opening partnership.

Other Sports Caeleb Dressel emerges with Michael Phelps-like comparison after ‘scandalous’ world swimming championship

first_imghighlights Caeleb Dressel won seven gold medals in the 2018 Budapest championship.Dressel broke Michael Phelps’ 100 metres butterfly record.The next Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo in 2020. Gwangju: American superstar Caeleb Dressel has invited comparisons to Olympic legend Michael Phelps after lighting up a world swimming championship plagued by doping rows, a sexual harassment arrest and a fatal nightclub accident. Dressel came away from Gwangju with six gold medals and two silvers, winning all four of his individual events and obliterating Phelps’s 10-year-old 100 metres butterfly world record for good measure. But even the heroics of swimming’s tattooed golden boy were often overshadowed by an explosive doping controversy, which was looming even before Chinese giant Sun Yang set foot in South Korea.    Following bombshell allegations in a FINA doping panel report, claiming the triple Olympic champion had allowed blood vials to be smashed with a hammer after being visited by testers, several swimmers made their feelings very clear.    Australia’s Mack Horton and Briton Duncan Scott refused to shake Sun’s hand after losing to the hulking Chinese swimmer, provoking a furious reaction from Sun, who yelled at Scott: “You’re a loser!” Sun, who retained his 200 and 400m freestyle world titles, insisted he was “protecting each and every athlete” by refusing to let what he called “unlicensed” testers take his blood.    “He’s not a drug cheat,” Sun’s coach Denis Cotterell told AFP, adding that Chinese swimming has taken “meticulous care” to clean up its act since the state-sponsored doping of the 1990s.    “It’s absolutely critical for the athletes, the association, for the whole sake of China’s respect on a world stage that they’re well and truly distanced from that past,” said the Australian, claiming that Sun was one of the most tested athletes in swimming.    “He’s tested year in, year out. You can’t have the performances he’s had over the years without doing the work.”     ‘Dangerous’ at the Olympics Above the fray, Dressel repeated in the 50 and 100m freestyle, as well as the 100m butterfly — but not before setting an eye-popping new world best of 49.50 seconds to eclipse Phelps’s old bodysuit mark by 0.32.    Inevitably, talk turned to next year’s Tokyo Olympics and whether Dressel can emulate Phelps, who racked up a record eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Games.    But Dressel revealed he had been feeling the strain. “I’ve got pimples on my face, I’m losing some hair,” said the 22-year-old, who swept to seven gold medals at the 2017 world championships in Budapest. “This is a lot of stress but I’m not sitting in my room flipping through my medals. I won less than seven, that doesn’t bug me one bit. If this is where we’re at heading to Tokyo, we’ll be very dangerous next year,” added Dressel, after the United States once again topped the medals table with 14 golds — nine more than nearest rivals Australia.    Dressel said he had been “absolutely devastated” to hear that two people had died and several athletes injured when a balcony inside a Gwangju nightclub collapsed at the weekend.    ‘Days of Our Lives’     Australian officials subsequently announced relay star Shayna Jack had tested positive for a banned substance before the championships — an opportunity for schadenfreude for the Chinese — before Hungarian swimmer Tamas Kenderesi was arrested on charges of sexual harassment after an alleged incident at a nightclub.    “The scriptwriters for ‘Days of Our Lives’ couldn’t have written a better script for this world championships,” said Australia’s Cate Campbell, who won two relay golds and took silver behind American Simone Manuel in the women’s 100m free.    “It’s thrown a bit of everything at us.” In the pool, nine world records tumbled in Korea, Hungarian teenager Kristof Milak pulverising Phelps’s 200m butterfly mark by a whopping 0.78 seconds in arguably the pick of them.    But with Sun facing a September hearing before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the spectre of doping was never far away. Asked about athletes vilifying China’s sporting hero, Russia’s Yulia Efimova took a long pause.    “Of course it’s not good,” said the former doping offender. “It was really hard for me, just a girl against the world when everyone hates me. I hope it will not happen again.”center_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

Rosario, Sano back stingy Dobnak as Twins beat Royals 7-2

first_imgIn a strange coincidence, Avila also was called for catchers’ interference on Soler’s previous at-bat.The Twins put the game away with three runs off Ian Kennedy in the seventh.TWINS MOVESThe Twins purchased the contract of left-hander Danny Coulombe and recalled right-hander Sean Poppen before the game. Both relievers had been on the four-man taxi squad that made the trip to Kansas City.TRAINER’S ROOM After the Royals jumped on the Twins with four runs in the first Friday night, it was Minnesota’s turn to strike early. Max Kepler hit a leadoff double, Jorge Polanco singled and Rosario hit Singer’s biggest mistake into the right-field fountain.Sano made it 4-0 when he crushed a pitch off the Royals’ Hall of Fame — an estimated 458 feet to left field.Meanwhile, Dobnak was keeping the Royals off the scoreboard until the fifth, when Gordon sent a one-out pitch over the wall in center. That finally gave Kansas City some momentum: Cam Gallagher and Whit Merrifield added two-out singles and Nicky Lopez guided an RBI double down the left-field line to make it 4-2.Dobnak escaped the jam when he speared Hunter Dozier’s line drive right back up the middle.The Royals’ last chance to pull ahead came on a series of miscues in the sixth. Alex Avila was called for interference when his catcher’s mitt was nicked by Jorge Soler’s bat, then Ryan McBroom singled before Gordon was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Tyler Duffy responded by striking out Adalberto Mondesi and pinch hitter Ryan O’Hearn to end the threat. Associated Press Twins: RHPs Jake Odorizzi (bruised ribs) and Zack Littell (right elbow inflammation) went on the injured list after getting hurt in the series opener. RHP Homer Bailey was moved to the 45-day injury list after a setback in his recovery from right biceps tendinitis. “Most teams are dealing with rosters that don’t necessarily look like they looked on opening day,” manager Rocco Baldelli said. “Some of these teams — and we want to be in this group — just go out there and play.”UP NEXTRoyals LHP Kris Bubic (0-3, 5.12 ERA) will try again for his first win when he makes his fifth career start and second in a row against Minnesota. He allowed two runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss Monday.
