TODAYonline - Animal abuse on the rise but AVA spends its time inhumanely culling harmless stray dogs.

I agree with Ms Aria Sim Shyuen completely. Culling dogs is not n should not be the solution of controlling strays. The only way to control the population is if the government looks to sterializing them. Recently there is a rise of animal abuse in Spore, rather than focusing on education the public n trying to catch these perperators, AVA is out catching harmless strays for culling instead. My mother has always been feeding strays for many years. It was only recently came to my attention it is against the law according to AVA. I dare say i have rarely met an agreesive strays. More often than not, these dogs are more weary of humans as they are subjected to abuse from human. I really hope that as this nation progesses, our welfare n compassion towards animals will also be more tolerant. I would sincerely hope the government will look into this issue urgently

    And the place become danger zone of stray dogs attack bicycle rider, motorcycles rider , jogging and fishing trips people.

    We saw this women took many plastic bag of dogs foods from her car to feed the stray dogs. And She dirty the place too of feeding the stray dogs.

    Her vehicles licence plate number: SFY5217G.

    She puts the public in danger of feeding the stray dogs at that place.

    One problem feeds the other—the growing demand for these stray dogs leads to more breeding, and more unwanted stray dogs.

    ( And the place become danger zone of stray dogs attack bicycle rider, motorcycles rider , jogging and fishing trips people )

    Dog attacks are not pretty and they are definitely no laughing matter. When stray dogs attack people it can lead to serious injury or even death. Too many people have been bit this way and it is surely not worth it.
