In Singapore’s Woodlands HDB void deck, a video captured a pet dog with a plastic bag around its legs, held on a short leash by a domestic helper engrossed in her phone. Accused of animal abuse, she claimed her employer instructed her to use the bag. Netizens’ opinions diverged on this incident, which sparks concerns about animal treatment.
A 10-year-old boy in Singapore, caught on camera throwing “Panther”, a community cat from a 22nd floor HDB block, completes a specially devised rehabilitation programme. The Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS) report the boy now understands the gravity of his actions and has issued a stern warning against any future cruelty.
