Secure a sanitary permit from the local health authority before establishing and operating their business or trade; 4.

5. Complainant and his family are unable to live in peace in their residence, because of the stinking smell that is coming from the waste materials of the defendants piggery. Even people who passed-by at Bayabas Street, Barangay Sto. Nio, and the neighboring residence noticed the stinking smell, and has been complaining about the unpleasant smell coming from the residence of the defendant; 6. Sometime in March 2013 complainant and the neighboring residence confronted with the defendant and demanded that the latter should find ways to get rid of the stinking smell coming from the waste materials of his livestock and if he cannot find ways to get rid of the smell he might just stop his piggery. Considering that he did not even obtained sanitary permit for the operation of said piggery; 7. Despite several oral demands, defendant did nothing to get rid of the smell and refuses to stop rising up his hogs; 8. In June 2013, complainant went to the Barangay Hall of Barangay Sto.

After summons has been served to the defendant, complainant and defendant confronted before the Punong Barangayand Pangkat ng Tagapagsundo, but the same did not result into any settlement, as the defendant refused to act on the demands of the complainant, as evidence thereof, I hereby attached the certificate to file action issued by the Punong Barangay of Barangay Sto. Nio, Pagadian city, as Annex A ; 10. As a result of defendants refusal to act on the demands of the complainant , as stated in the foregoing, the latter is forced to file this complaint unto the Honorable Court to abate such nuisance caused by the defendants continuous refusal to get rid of the stinking smell from the waste materials of defendants residential piggery; 11.

A nuisance is any act, omission, establishment, business, condition of property, or anything
else which:

(1) Injures or endangers the health or safety of others; or

(2) Annoys or offends the senses;

12. The smell may endanger the health of the neighboring residence of the defendant, considering that it attracts insects such as flies that carry various types of germs that cause different kinds of disease, in the neighborhood. And the smell also annoys the sense of smell of every people who notices the unpleasant smell from the defendants residence; 13. Complainant repleads the allegations in Paragraph 4 and 5 as copied in full herein, and as evidence thereof, I hereby attached the joint affidavit, the neighbors of the defendant, as Annex B;
