LEE BEE WAH: ITS NOT RATS RUNNING AROUND SPRINGSIDE PARK, THEY ARE HARMLESS SHREWS

Residents have reported seeing rodents in Springside Park. When NParks and their pest control team went down at night, they didn’t see rats but shrews. They’ve explained to some residents that shrews are harmless to humans, and eat insects like cockroaches.

Some residents requested not to kill the shrews. I’ve never heard of shrews before, so sharing it here for information. NParks will keep monitoring the situation.
