More complaints of cruelty
In view of the recent happenings of animal cruelty to an animal in Selangor, whereby a cat was thrown into a dryer at a launderette, many have asked: How could one do such a cruel act like this? Is that person a psychopath? Not one person, there were three of them. Many acts of cruelty happen everywhere and at any time. When such a case like this is exposed and goes viral on facebook pages, the culprit is unlikely to escape - thanks to the social media. Many cases have gone unreported and sometimes the witness/witnesses are not brave enough to speak up for the voiceless or don't supply enough evidence. At the same time, we are often questioned: What about animals (especially dogs) kept in high rise buildings which are causing a nuisance (barking all the time) to humans? Isn’t this cruel to humans? The only advice we can give to pet owners again and again is to play their roles well, be mindful, respect and live in harmony with thy neighbors. Be responsible pet owners!
