COTABATO CITY - Policemen in Cotabato City had no choice but to shoot a carabao after it ran wild outside a slaughterhouse and damaged property along Sinsuat Avenue.
Senior Superintendent Rolen Balquin, city police director, said the carabao damaged 2 motorcycles and smashed into an eatery along the highway.
"Para ma-avoid na makasakit pa ito ng mga tao at dumami yung mga masirang mga properties sinabi nung may-ari na barilin na lang," Balquin said.
The carabao was then killed and was brought back to the slaughterhouse using a backhoe.
The owner of the carabao pledged to pay for the damage caused by the runaway animal.
