These are heartrending pictures indeed, as a STOMPer sent in these images of poor cats and kittens meeting an unfortunate and tragic end as they fell prey to a cat serial killer at Pasir Ris Park and Bukit Batok.
The most horrifying fact remains– that the culprit is still on out, on the loose, ready to strike at these hapless and helpless felines.
And the STOMPer who sent this alert asks a fundamental, humane question — just why are some people so cruel as to do this bestial act?
Says violentsuicidal xx , in an email to STOMP:
“The picture below shows the deaths of three cats found at Pasir Ris Town Park, within 50m of each other on 12 th May 2008, Monday.
“A fourth cat was found a distance away in the open field near Blk 536, Pasir Ris Dr. 1 with a fractured jaw.
“The picture below shows the killing of two cats and with serious injury to a third (which was euthanased due to extreme distress and possible brain damage) found near the bin centre at Blk 253 Pasir Ris St. 21 on Friday night, 2nd May 2008.
“This picture below shows the tragic death of a kitten found in front of a rubbish chute in Blk 211 Bukit Batok St. 21 on Sunday morning, 4th May 2008.
“The last picture (main) shows the tragic death of a kitten found behind Blk 403, Fajar Road (Bukit Panjang) on Sunday, 9th March 2008.
“The SPCA is willing to offer as much as $6, 000 for witnesses who witnessed the incidents of the dead cats. ”
The contributor ended off the email sent with a heartfelt plea:
“Stop animal abuse. Care for the animals instead.”
The SPCA says these pictures were taken from its website, and thanks the STOMPer for alerting the public this way.
In an email to STOMP, its Executive Officer, Deirdre Moss, says:
“The Stomper has posted these pictures from our website which we are grateful to them for taking the initiative in creating awareness for these cases, which to date remain unsolved.
“The pictures reflect a tragic loss of life, and we are offering a reward of $1,000 in each of these cases for information that leads to the arrest and prosecution of the abuser/s.
“For more information on the reward money being offered in each case (only in one of the cases, is the reward $6,000 – details on our website as to who specifically has topped up SPCA”s initial offer of $1,000), readers can go direct to SPCA’s website www.spca.org.sg”
