淡滨尼集选区议员马炎庆在网上贴文,指区内出现更多野狗,提请居民注意安全,引起网民的强烈反弹。

较早前,马炎庆上载的视频显示,淡滨尼45街有四只野狗在雨中嬉戏。他指出,淡滨尼市镇理事会已经通报农粮兽医局。他也劝请居民一旦看到野狗,就立即通知农粮局,并分享贴士,教导公众怎么应对野狗。网民过后纷纷在他的网页留言,质疑必须惊动农粮局的说法。

There have been increased sightings of stray dogs around Tampines Street 45 area. Tampines Town Council had received feedback from residents and reported this to the AVA. If you are concerned with stray dogs around your estate, please call AVA’s 24hr Animal Response Centre at 1800 476 1600. Stray dogs are generally harmless. So I would like to remind residents not to panic. Here are some AVA tips on what you can do when you encounter stray dogs. 1. Do not run, stay calm 2. Look away, do not stare at the dog 3. Speak softly, do not shout and make sudden movements to chase it away. If you need to, move away slowly. #TampinesNorth #straydogs

马炎庆做出回应时表示,对这么多人关心野狗,感到很欣慰,但他身为议员,在收到公众的电邮,要求市镇会对野狗采取行动后,有责任确保居民的安全。

I have gone through all the comments to my previous post and I’m heartened to know that there are many of you who care for the stray dogs. As seen in the video clip which I received from a resident, there are several dogs and some residents will be concerned (in fact, the Town Council has received several emails asking for action). As their MP, it is my duty to assure them. I shared the AVA advisory so that residents know how to react and not cause undue distress to the dogs. For example, if people start running away from the dogs, the dogs may chase them and give the wrong impression they are being aggressive. Residents’ safety is important and AVA as the national agency for wild animals has to be alerted. In Feb 2017, then SMS Desmond Lee said in Parliament that AVA takes a multi-pronged approach to manage the animal population and mitigate health and safety concerns. It first undertakes a professional assessment of potential threats that animals might pose to public health and safety. AVA will have to act if there significant health and safety concerns. Where feasible, it will work with stakeholders, including the animal welfare groups and organisations to relocate and rehome these animals. Culling is not the first action and used ONLY as a last resort. In fact, AVA just rolled out a Trap Neuter and Release Program. Please be assured that Tampines does not support culling of dogs. We will work with animal welfare groups to foster and re-home these animals. If you know of anyone who can help, do let me know. Thanks.

马炎庆强调,绝不支持扑杀野狗的做法,并保证这是万不得已才会采取的最后手段。
