PETALING JAYA, Malaysia: The Selangor Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals confirms that it has received a complaint about a viral photo of a dog being left on the ledge of a high-rise apartment, says its chairman Christine Chin.
She said she received the complaint from a person staying across from the apartment unit in Taman OUG, Kuala Lumpur, adding that the complainant alleged that the owner of the dog had done this many times previously.
"It is understood that the management of the condo issued a warning to the dog owner yesterday but the owner refused to stop," said Chin on Tuesday.
In the photo, the dog is seen standing on a narrow ledge without any railings, believed to be on the 27th floor of the apartment block.
Chin said they would be lodging a report with the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS).
She adds that she hopes the dog's owner will be charged under the Animal Welfare Act.
