Do Not Harass Animal Feeders

GEORGE TOWN: A local non-governmental organisation advocating for stray animals has appealed to the public not to harass or threaten the good-hearted community of animal feeders.

Save our Strays Neutering Society (SOS) founder April Sham said a 61-year-old feeder was harassed on Jan 16 while feeding homeless animals in Jalan Perak here.

“A food outlet operator scolded retiree Ang Geok Tin for feeding the animals on a pavement across his shop. He accused her of littering and tried to assault her but was stopped by a passer-by.

“He warned her to not feed the homeless dogs and kicked her bicycle down, spilling the dog food all over the road. Ang has since lodged a police report over the incident,” she said at a press conference yesterday.

Sham said animal feeders were compassionate and selfless people who helped to look after homeless animals living in the streets, adding that the community should appreciate their kind work.

“SOS is strongly against those who threaten violence on the feeders.

“Ang is just one of many feeders who have experienced this kind of incident,” she said, adding that after SOS shared the incident on its Facebook page, it went viral.

“We are also hoping the state will set up a mass neutering clinic with full-time veterinarians.

“SOS has its own neutering programme which depends on donations from the public,” she said.
