Bad situation stinks to high heaven, 600 animals wallow in own piss and poo (LianHeZaoBao, 20041029)
Score again for the pet-mills and unscrupulous businesspeople.
Riddle me this, how did a man with a criminal record against animals, get a licence to breed pets? Follow-ups: - License for animal smuggler? (TODAY, 20041101) - AVA investigating firm over unauthorised dog breeding; clarifies sequence of events (TODAY, 20041108) To wit, the AVA sez: "There is no ground for AVA to deny the request as Mr Kuah's previous conviction was not in relation to dog breeding. As such, in-principle approval was given to the company to breed dogs. " I say, what impeccable logic. - Harsh punishment for victims, a wrist slap for perpetrator? (TODAY, 20050425) So, are you supporting unscrupulous businesspeople? Please, unless you're sure of the source of that doggie in the petshop display, don't breed or buy, while shelter animals die. - Go to Go to: Casefile: Cruel Singapore. Hack-care Singapore.
"AVA has gone to check the place after a member of the public reported to them, and found 106 dogs kept in diry and cramped cages, with houseflies dancing all over - in shocking conditions!
