The Department of Veterinary Services in Cape Coast has organised an immunisation exercise for animals that are likely to be infected by rabies.

The exercise was carried out at Brofoyedur and Amanful both suburbs of Cape Coast with some five hundred animals benefiting from the exercise.

According to the Regional Veterinary Officer, Dr. Felicity Gyan Toninga these areas were chosen because of the high number of pets found there.

A lecturer with the Department of Communication Studies of University of Cape Coast, Theophilus Attram Nartey says the Energy Ministry and government need to address the internal challenges that have contributed to the soaring prices of fuel.
