A FEW residents have complained about the number of stray dogs that roam the streets of Labasa and Savusavu towns.
Savusavu resident Jeremaiah Ovini said the origins of these dogs were unknown.
"These are usually old dogs that have been injured or left to fend for themselves and something needs to be done to them," he said.
"We have raised our concerns with the town council and we've heard from a few of them that these dogs cannot be exterminated because of legislation and Acts that have stamped out cruelty to animals."
Mr Ovini said Savusavu was a tourism town "and these animals really take up space".
"They give a bad look to the town, so something needs to be done to them whether they are rounded up and kept in a safe home or something of that sort."
Labasa resident Sukha Singh said the stray dogs in Labasa were becoming a menace.
