The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority joined the observance of Kindness to Animals Day today and called on motorists to ensure that they are not harming animals.
The MMDA said motorists should learn to brake when they see animals on the road so that they would not harm these.
The Kindness to Animals Day is meant to remind the public to love and care for other creatures, it said.
“Para sa mga motorista, bigyan ng respeto ang mga hayop. Huwag sagasaan ang mga gumagalang aso, pusa, at iba pang hayop sa lansangan,” it said.
