SINGAPORE: Mr K Shanmugam, Law and Foreign Affairs Minister and MP for Nee Soon GRC, has said it is important to channel the energy of animal lovers towards constructive and feasible solutions to resolve concerns over the treatment of animals. He was speaking at a public forum on animal welfare policies, the first such forum in Singapore. The event at Chong Pang on Saturday also saw the launch of the Chong Pang Animal Welfare Programme to mark the end of cat culling in the constituency. Organisers - animal welfare group ACRES and the Cat Welfare Society - say the forum is not a one-off event. They are working to replicate it at other constituencies. More than 400 people turned up at the event. Mr Shanmugam said education for the young and public engagement is "the way to go" for a successful animal welfare programme in Singapore.
