Bounties funded by Negrenses for the neutralization of New People's Army rebels and ISIS-linked local terrorists or extremists, may be replicated at the national level, Maj. Gen. Jon Aying, commanding general of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division, said yesterday.

Negrenses recently pooled resources to fund bounties for the neutralization of New People's Army rebels and ISIS-linked local terrorists or extremists, who may attempt to penetrate Negros island, he said.

Concerned Negrenses are giving P100,000 each for every NPA “combatant” neutralized, dead or alive, Aying added.

Dumaguete, NegOr on alert
as poultry deaths reported
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE

Dumaguete City and other parts of Negros Oriental are on alert following reports of a new kind of disease that had recently caused the deaths of poultry animals, specifically chickens, of backyard raisers in the locality.

The City Agriculture Office, City Veterinary Office and the quarantine office of the Bureau of Animal Industry in Dumaguete collected blood and cloacal swab samples yesterday from chickens believed to be infected with an unknown disease.

City Agriculturist William Ablong coordinated with City Veterinarian Lourdes Socorro and the quarantine veterinary officer, Alfonzo Tundag, for the collection of samples. Five swab and blood samples were taken from chickens of two neighbors in Talay and were sent to the regional office for laboratory analysis.
