ACRES CAUGHT PYTHON IN 2 MINS BUT CAN'T CATCH SEGAR RD MONKEYS

A 2m long python was found at a bicycle parking area near Blk 113 Potong Pasir. A passer by was walking his dog nearby when he noticed the python and called for help.

He was worried as the area is home to childcare centres and was afraid it might harm the children there.

ACRES reportedly rushed to the scene and caught the python in only 2 minutes. They informed people not to provoke one if they see it in future as it does not usually target humans.

How come ACRES can catch python in 2 minutes but cannot catch monkeys?

ANIMAL LOVER: LEAVE SEGAR RD MONKEYS ALONE, THEY HAVE RIGHTS TOO!

<Reader Contribution by Eunice>

Please leave the Segar rd monkeys alone! I understand a few of them have caused trouble for the residents but I'm sure there are other ways to go around this. It's cowardly to take the easy way out by resorting to catch them all. It is also inhuman!

The animals have been around for the longest time and are part of the natural environment. There must be a reason why they behave this way. And it could even be because we humans are not considerate to them in the first place?

We humans are the ones who are intruding on them! We are the ones who are destroying their environment! Animals have their rights too you know. Who are we to be so cruel to rob them of their homes?

And even if they stole food or knocked down people's plants, I'm sure it's purely accidental. They were probably just being mischievous.

It's important that we learn to treasure nature instead of taking it for granted or changing it just for our own convenience. I hope people can understand this and respect their rights by leaving them alone.

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?

SEGAR ROAD MONKEYS GETTING MORE AGGRESSIVE, WHERE IS AVA?

In one case, a resident claimed that a monkey had bitten his three year old son last week, and also confirmed that at least three or four other people have been bitten by the monkeys. Some residents are now even afraid of stepping out of their flats. A resident said the monkey has broken items like flower pots, and his family has mostly stayed at home during the recent long weekend due to the fear of being attacked by the monkeys.

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!
