At around 10.00am today, I received a message from a distraught Tanjung Bunga resident informing me that stray dogs were being openly shot in the Persiaran Tanjung Bunga area near Ratu Mutiara.
Five shots rang out.
Many other dogs belonging to residents in nearby apartments began barking furiously.
This is not the first time this is happening.
A few months ago, according to the same resident, enforcement personnel were shooting dogs in front of the Tanjung Bunga market in full view of the horrified public, including tourists and children.
Why such cruelty? Isn’t there a more humane way of dealing with stray animals? There’s also the question of public safety.
What does the MPPP have to say?
