Police in Tabanan have apprehended people traveling on the road from Gilimanuk to Denpasar caught in the process of trying to smuggle dogs and cats into Bali.

It is against Law No. 16 of 1992 on the Quarantine of Animals in Bali that declares any attempt to transport dogs and cats in or out of Bali a crime punishable by up to three years in prison and Rp. 150 million (US$13,000).

Animals discovered in the process of transportation to or from Bali are confiscated by quarantine officials who can, at their option,  destroy the animals.

The most recent confiscation of animals involved two longhaired Angora kittens, and four dogs comprised of a chow-chow, two standard poodles, a pit bull mix and a local dog from West Java.

The animals were discovered during roadside vehicle inspections on the highway near Kediri.

Listed as a suspect in the case is the driver of the vehicle Agus Jaya (42) who told police he was paid RP. 7.5 million (US$650) to drive the animals from West Java to Denpasar.

The Bali Post reports that quarantine authorities have determined that the chow chow found in the vehicle had been sent by an individual named Subianto listed as living on Jalan Sukamulya Indah in Bandung, West Java and destined for delivery to a man named Wijaya on Jalan Pantai Sindu 15 in Sanur, Bali.
