Earlier in January 2017, a cat was allegedly abused to death, as it was found dead and hanging from a tree at Aljunied.
Now, to the horror of the community cat caretakers, two cats in Yishun were brutally killed on the same day, a horrific callback to the slew of cat abuse cases in 2015 at the same area.
The first case involved a cat that was found by a member of the public at a road divider near Yishun MRT station.
It was discovered with a slit throat.
It lay on its side motionless, while the bloodstains on the concrete had already dried. What seems to be a cord or cable tie can be seen.
On the same day, a white cat was found dead behind Khoo Teck Puat hospital.
Photos of the dead animal were uploaded by Facebook page Yishun 326 Tabby Cat — the mouth and upper body of the cat could be seen to be bloodied and badly battered.
As the photos are extremely graphic, viewer discretion is advised.
While a suspect was arrested then, there is the possibility of there being more than one cat killer around the neighbourhood.
If you have witnessed a case of animal abuse, call the police at 999 immediately.
If possible, take a picture or film the suspect. Do note the exact location of where the abuse was sighted.
Do not move the body if the animal is already dead. If the animal requires urgent attention, call the SPCA hotline immediately at 6287 5355 ext 9.
