AVA CULLS MORE CHICKENS, THIS TIME IN PASIR RIS

AVA is at is again! Just a month after the Sin Ming chickens was culled that angered many Singaporeans, AVA went ahead and culled some free roaming chickens in the Pasir Ris area. AVA claimed, as they will, that these chickens could pose a threat to public health in the event that bird flu is brought here by migratory birds.

Residents near the culling area, at the Sungei Api Api area claimed that there used to be more than 10 chickens around the area, but now only a scattered 2 or 3 remained. Expect these 2 or 3 to be culled soon too. AVA said it has been receiving feedback about the "growing free-roaming chicken population" since January last year, although they declined to say exactly how many complaints were received, or indeed, if the complaints come from the same group of people.

SLAUGHTER OF WILD CHICKENS OF SIN MIN WAS UNNECESSARY

These were the same flocks of wild chicken in Sin Min estate that were slaughtered recently. My family and neighbours never found them a nuisance. Instead we enjoy the sights of them roaming in the estate. We were never disturbed by their morning calls.

very upset and saddened by the unnecessary culling. why can't we human beings learn to live in harmony with other creatures?

WILD CHICKENS TO BE CULLED IN YEAR OF ROOSTER

AVA said they will cull wild chickens if they receive complaints over noise, while NParks has said that they will cull the wild chickens to prevent interbreeding with their endangered ascendants, the native red junglefowl.

In this year of the rooster, this is not good news at all for the wild chickens. Seems like the chickens days of running wild all over Singapore are over, as two government agencies have them in their sights. Funny thing is, are there that many wild chickens left in Singapore? Seems like all the chickens found in Singapore are those ready to be cooked ones or in fast food outlets. Don't see any live chickens running around all over Singapore.
