Local authorities in Davao Oriental have ordered an all-out manhunt against the person/s responsible for killing the 3-year old Philippine Eagle Pamana inside the Mt. Hamiguitan Range that lies in the borders of Mati City, and San Isidro and Governor Generoso towns.
Davao Oriental Governor Corazon Malanyaon said she already ordered the provincial police to conduct a thorough investigation and run after whoever is responsible for shooting Pamana with an airgun.

Metal fragments recovered inside the body of Pamana indicated that she was shot with an airgun.

Mati City Mayor Carlo Rabat meanwhile expressed regret for the death of Pamana. He appealed to the residents of barangays Lanca, Luban and Cabuaya in the Mt. Hamiguitan Range to cooperate with the ongoing investigation and immediately relay to the authorities if they have information of people who may possess airguns in their area.

Governor Malanyaon said she will discuss with the police the viability of offering a reward money for anyone who could give information that would lead to the identification and arrest of the culprit.

TV personality Kim Atienza has also offered reward to anyone who has information.

Pamana’s body was retrieved last August 16 in Mt. Hamiguitan.

Jose Lechoncito of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources 11 Wildlife Section said that Pamana’s global positioning system (GPS) transmitter went into a “mortality mode” on August 10.

Mortality mode, he explained, is when the GPS transmission is no longer moving in one place. The following day, August 11, the Philippine Eagle Foundation readily formed a team and searched for Pamana.

On August 16, the carcass of Pamana was retrieved. Lechonsito said that the body was already in the advance state of decomposition.

Pamana was released into the wild last June 12, 2015 by the Philippine Eagle Foundation and the government of Davao Oriental province to commemorate the 117th celebration of Philippine Independence Day.

The ceremony was held at at the buffer zone of the Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary in Barangay La Union in San Isidro town.

Pamana was rescued three years ago as an eaglet surviving two gunshot wounds. She was found in mountain range of Gabunan in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte.

The Davao City Central 911 Emergency is on standby while waiting for the latest notice whether or not a tsunami would reach Davao Region brought about by the quake in Chile Thursday morning (Philippine time).

Central 911 head Emmanuel Jaldon said that their emergency teams are on standby at a moment’s notice in case it would be confirmed that destructive tsunami would reach Davao.

As of the moment though, Jaldon said, it is not likely that waves reaching Davao would be destructive considering that the waves that hit the coast of Chile were only 15-feet high.

Jaldon said that they are however not taking chances and have already started preparing their people and equipments for any eventuality.

“We have protocols to follow in terms of alert status. As of now, we are monitoring possible distant source tsunami but unlikely because only a 15 foot wave was generated along the coast of Chile. The necessary early warning status will be issued of threat level will be heightened and the corresponding actions will be executed,” said Jaldon.

An 8.3 magnitude quake hit in Chile Thursday morning (Philippine time) which caused tsunami.

The waves might reach Davao Region thus Dabawenyos are advised to wait for further notice and be prepared for any eventuality.
