Local authorities are investigating an alleged case of animal abuse, following a video that made its rounds on social media on Sunday (17 December).

In response to queries from Yahoo News Singapore, both the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) and Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said that investigations into the incident are ongoing.

A 23-second video posted on Facebook by used Min Quan Yeow on Sunday (17 December) showed a woman in a green T-shirt abusing a husky within the compound of a landed property. The woman, described as a domestic helper, can be seen shoving the dogs head against the ground and hitting it with a metal feeding bowl.

Yeow wrote in his post that he had been hearing moans and yelps” for almost a week coming from the “weak and frail husky” he had seen lying on the ground. He also noted the presence of a car parked in the unit for “a while”, which he said was an indication that the animal’s owners were out of town.
