MONKEY TERRORIZING PUNGGOL RESIDENTS CAUGHT BY AVA

Some pictures and videos of the monkey eating oranges and eggs that it had snatched from a passer-by, as well as hanging out at a playground were taken by a resident there. The resident also claimed that the monkey scratched the leg of a boy who is four or five years old and also climbed up outside the units of some flats. Acres and AVA were both highlighted.

ROWDY MONKEYS AT BUKIT TIMAH RAID HOUSES & STEAL COSMETICS

A Singaporean Chinese writer posted on FB about a group of rowdy monkeys who raided her house at Bukit Timah. They stole from her kitchen fruits, bread, biscuits, and would leave dirty trails in her backyard. After having a feast, they continue to loiter outside her house to frolick in the sun. Oddly enough, they also stole her cosmetic products.

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?

MONKEY EVADES CAPTURE DESPITE INTENSE EFFORTS. WHO IS THE MONKEY NOW?

As of yet, they have not been able to capture the said monkey. This monkey is certainly not monkeying around. The experts in catching wildlife, have so far been stumped by the monkey. This is quite worrying, if they are still unable to catch the monkey even after many days of trying. More people may get hurt, especially children, if the monkey continues to run around unchecked. Already this past week, five reported monkey attacks in the area have been reported.

ACRES: SEGAR RD MONKEY IS AGGRESSIVE DUE TO HUMAN FEEDING

Thanks to many of you who wrote to us concerned, about the monkey at Segar road. ACRES is equally concerned for the community and these monkeys in our garden city - where wild encounters will become inevitable as they will use the green corridors adjacent to housing estates. Unfortunately, the behaviour of the monkey at Segar Road has been severely altered due to public feeding and harassment. ACRES has met with residents on the ground on several occasions and also has educated callers who report of sightings not to feed or interact with monkeys in general.

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?
