MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is considering taking legal action against the subdivision association in Quezon City for denying entry to its team to investigate the incident of two ostriches seen running loose around the village on Tuesday.

Members of the DENR Biodiversity Management Bureau proceeded to the subdivision but they were denied access by the security guards, according to Environment Undersecretary Benny Antiporda.

The team again went to the village yesterday to get details about the incident. But as of late afternoon, Antiporda said it remained unclear whether they were allowed entry to the area.

Antiporda said they coordinated with the homeowners’ association and the local government unit.

On Tuesday, two ostriches were seen running loose at Mapayapa Village 3 in Barangay Pasong Tamo, causing a stir among residents and visitors of the subdivision.
