BITTER PUNGGOL RESIDENT CALLS AVA TO CULL DOGS IN ESTATE, CLAIMS DOGS ATTACKED HIM WHEN HE FELL ON HIS OWN

A Punggol resident claims he was "attacked" by stray dogs. He has been calling AVA to cull the dogs since 2012. However, in further examination, he was not attacked, but merely fell: "Suddenly, the dogs on his left came from behind and barked". "I was startled, lost my footing and fell." Punggol is an area where tensions between stray dogs and humans are high - due to rapid deforestation leading to the displacement of the indigenous dogs.
