      Two community cats were found dead overnight with the same injuries at Yishun Street 22, near Block 281.

      Facebook post dated Sep 26 appealed for information and witnesses to what is suspected to be a case of animal abuse.

      The post said:

      "There have been several sudden deaths of our healthy and fat community cats in Yishun St 22 Blk 281 area.

      "These 2 cats died overnight and sustained the same injuries. We suspect they were abused.

      "We appeal for information and witnesses. We are aware there's someone going around to different spots in Yishun to kill cats.

      "Please help us keep an eye on our helpless and trusting community cats."

    • Grassroots fast response team set up to tackle Yishun cat deaths

       

      A new grassroots fast response team has been set up to gather evidence and conduct patrols in Nee Soon, after a spate of cat deaths around the estate in the last three months.

      Member of Parliament Louis Ng said on Tuesday (Dec 15) that additional high resolution cameras have also been installed around the neighbourhood.

      He said this will complement efforts by the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) and Singapore Police Force in nabbing the serial cat killers, who have struck 17 times since September. Only one of the 17 cats survived the attacks.

       

      The latest case on Dec 12 involved a cat found dead at a multi-storey carpark along Yishun Ring Road. It was believed to have been strangled, with the rope still attached to its body when it was found.

      The fast response team currently consists of 20 to 30 grassroots volunteers, cat feeders and concerned residents.

       

      Once they have been alerted to a case, a small team of volunteers will arrive at the location promptly and go from door-to -door to speak to residents.

      They will also leave notices on vehicles in the vicinity to appeal for the owners of private in-car cameras to review their CCTV footage for evidence.

      Mr Ng stressed that to prosecute any offender, AVA would need direct verifiable evidence such as videos and photographs.

      The AVA, which is leading the investigation, has reviewed the existing CCTV footage from cameras at HDB lift lobbies and in the lifts but found no leads so far.

      Ms Janet Sum, a volunteer and founder of Facebook group Yishun 326 Tabby Cat, has called for more volunteers to join the fast response team.

      She noted that the current group of volunteers have been "overwhelmed and overstretched".

      About six volunteers patrol the neighbourhood between 1am and 4am almost every night, but they are unable to cover all the key areas, she said.

      She added that recent cat deaths have become "more cruel" and "more bold", a sign that the suspects remain undeterred.

      Members of the public with any information about the deaths of the cats may call the AVA at 1800-476-1600 or e-mail[email protected].
