AVA HIRES CONTRACTORS TO REMOVE CATS FORCEFULLY FROM INTRUDING INTO HOMES

AVA has acknowledged that they hired contractors to remove cats, but only those who reportedly enters residents homes. This recent issue came to light when a Cat Welfare Society (CWS) mediator said that he had approached a man seen with a net and carrier to catch a cat that allegedly went into a residents house. The man siad he had been engaged by the AVA to remove the cat, and to bring the cat to AVA, or he would not be paid for the job. However, the cat was not found in the resident's house, and the mediator expressed his misgivings that the man, and any other cat catchers, would just take any cats in the neighbourhood and deliver it to AVA to receive his pay.

This raises the question of the safety of the cats. AVA clarified that they will close the loop by checking with the person who provided the feedback to check if the contractor was present, and if the correct animal was removed. They also reiterated that all cats caught will be taken care of by their officers daily at the AVA pound, and if those cats are found to pets, they will try to reunite the cats with their owners.

CLAIMS THAT THE GRASS JELLY FROM NTUC MADE OF PLASTIC ARE FALSE

NTUC Fairprice have said that the video which purportedly show a grass jelly or chin chow product that is made of plastic is false. In the viral video, a man, introducing himself as Vincent Ng, had said that the Tan Soon Mui grass jelly he bought from FairPrice was "made of plastic".

The 1min 38sec video shows what appears to be dry, flaky grass jelly, instead of the usual smooth dark product. A spokesman for the NTUC Fairprice has stated that they had clarified with the local manufacturer, and found that the claim is false. Checks done by the manufacturer does not reveal any of the same product having had the same issue as the the one int he viral video. The spokesman also said that the manufacturer has made a police report.

AVA FAILED TO CATCH SEGAR RD MONKEY FOR 2 WKS, INSTALLS CCTV INSTEAD

Five new CCTV cameras were set up in Bukit Panjang in order to help catch the troublemaking monkey. AVA said the cameras will allow them to better understand the monkey's movements and plan more effective operations.

There are around 160 reports of monkey attacks but AVA and ACRES are still trying to catch the monkey. They have no choice but to install CCTV after failing to catch one monkey for the past two weeks.

The attacks are believed to be by a single monkey which has occasionally popped by nearby schools and stole students' lunchboxes.

Do you think this is effective?

AFTER MONKEY BITES RESIDENTS, AVA FINALLY DECLARES THE MONKEY AS A PUBLIC SAFETY RISK

AVA has described the situation where a monkey is running havoc and going around biting people at Segar Road as a public safety risk. They are now working with the Animal Concerns Research and Education Society (Acres) to remove the monkey that has continued to wreak havoc in the Bukit Panjang estate since November last year, after another monkey was removed.

After biting numerous people and not being afraid of the presence of humans in the area, and AVA only now calls it a safety public risk? Thanks, but you did not need to tell the public that. We already know, long before you did. The monkey have been a menace since at least November last year, and residents have complained since then, but only now action is to be taken? After the media finally publicise the issue?

CUDDLES CAT CAFE OWNER NEGLECTED THE HEALTH OF CATS IN HIS CAFE TO MAKE QUICK BUCKS

The owner, Jonathan Tan Wei-De, had falsified cat health records in his application for AVA's temporary licence to keep animals for public interaction on the premises. He was alleged to fail to keep the cats in good health.

What kind of a man is this? Irresponsibly ignoring the health of the cats, just so that he could open his cat cafe and make money out of people who loves cats. Probably the health of the cats are the last thing on his mind, instead, it was all about the money. Well, spend the next two weeks behind bars and think about money. Good for you!

HELP! SEGAR RD MONKEYS DESTROY NEIGHBOURS PLANTS & CAUSE BIG MESS

<Reader Contribution by Dan Lim>

I live in the Segar rd area where some monkeys have been making a big mess for the past few months. They regularly climb up the block to look for food and end up destroying all my plants and pots!

Help, I am not sure how it happened as my family never left food lying around or feed the monkeys. They are not very scared of humans too. If this goes on, I worry our house will be destroyed by those monkeys!
