He says all strays will be treated as humanely as possible with sheltering and re-homing options to be explored for non-violent dogs.

The PM adds serious steps have already been taken to ensure that no one is be subjected to the mental and physical scars of such an event.

All dog owners have been urged to collar their pets and keep them restrained and Fijians should also not feed food scraps to stray dogs and maintain a safe distance.
