    The City Government of Bogo, Cebu reported that an injured civet cat was found and rescued in Barangay Guadalupe through the joint efforts of the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO), the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CBDRRMO), and the City Veterinary Office.

    A concerned resident from the said barangay alerted the local government after they saw the civet cat, also known as “singgawong/ singgawng” by the locals, in their yard.

    The civet cat was rescued and turned over to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) for rehabilitation, as it was observed to be weak and wounded.

    The local government, through the CENRO, urged the public to avoid capturing or harming the wildlife and to let them be, as they play a vital role in the ecosystem.

    Civet cats are nocturnal animals that feed on fruits, insects, and small mammals. They are also known for producing the world’s most expensive coffee, called kopi luwak, from their feces.

    The City Government of Bogo, Cebu expressed its gratitude to the resident who reported the incident and to the agencies who responded to the rescue. It also reminded the citizens to be responsible and respectful of the environment and its biodiversity.
