Owner of “It’s just a dog, f**k you” dog hit-and-run car identified

Someone called Animal Lovers' League with an anonymous number in a bid to defend the suspect.

The owner of the car that ran over a dog belonging to an animal shelter in Pasir Ris has been identified as 38-year-old woman living in Tampines.

A commenter on Animal Lovers’ League (ALL) volunteer Lixin Tan’s Facebook post paid the fee to extract the information using the car’s registration plate, SJR9248E.

In an update to her original post, Tan shared more details about the hit-and-run accident that took place on Sunday morning just outside ALL’s shelter in Pasir Ris.

Among other things, Tan alleged that the female driver’s son had called ALL using an anonymous number to defend the perpetrator’s actions.

“He self-righteously proclaimed that she had stepped out of her car to check on Yang. This is an absolute lie, insinuating that all the witnesses present were lying, as she clearly hadn’t; the entire situation was witnessed by the volunteers and a few cyclists present during the incident.”

Tan said they couldn’t get pictures of the driver’s face because she moved off quite quickly after the exchange.

Another volunteer, N’g Perle, was near enough at the scene to take pictures of the driver’s car, and shared this account of the sequence of events:

In one of its earlier comments, ALL’s founders, Cathy Strong and Mohan Sree Dharan, said they would be taking the case up with the Agri-food and Veterinary Authority.
