ST (4-5-08)

Thanks to the number of you who sent this in - it seems more cats have been abused in Pasir Ris. The story isn't exactly clear on what happened so it'll be informative to see what the postmortem turns up.

An email has been going around asking to help find the culprit, and it's good so many people are affected. The sad reality is that it's going to be difficult - chances are that even if anyone saw anything they're not likely to come forward. Also one thing to bear in mind is that there will be a lot of people who claim they DID see something - but aren't going to want to go the police, which isn't much help. Hearsay evidence, as we know, isn't going to stand up in court - mostly because it usually isn't very reliable.

My colleague alerted me to the case yesterday morning. She saw the report in the Malay newspaper. We're especially concerned as it happened so near our area.
We asked the colleagues who live in that estate if they know anything but no news as yet...

Hope the murderer is caught soon. We're now so terrified of our cats running out and suffering the fate of these cat and kittens...

My colleague and her daughter have seen schoolboys from a nearby secondary school bullying the cats. They have threatened these boys with police action if they continue. No doubt in their mind, they suspect these students.
