The Dehcho community of Wrigley is looking to bring a spay and neuter clinic as it’s population of dogs continues to grow.
PKFN SAO Assistant Jocelyn Skeard says she doesn’t think the community has ever had a clinic, and says strays are becoming a bit of an issue.
“The dogs are loose running around, so sometimes they do get into fights. It’s a little bit of an issue,” Skeard told CKLB on Friday.
Skeard said the high cost it takes to send a dog to Yellowknife or elsewhere to be fixed causes many to just ignore the problem instead.
She is hoping to bring the clinic to Wrigley some time around April.
