SINGAPORE - An alleged case of animal abuse - with the apparent abuser leaving behind a strongly worded letter detailing "experiments" conducted on a cat - has caused alarm among animal lovers here.
A photograph of the letter was first posted on Facebook late last week by user Mitchell Sopiano Tan and later on citizen-journalism website Stomp on Sunday.
Among a list of torture methods cited, the letter said that the abuser had "tested" the cat's "hearing", "threshold (of) pain" and "diving abilities".
The original Facebook post has since been taken down.
In his posts, Mr Tan said the tabby cat had gone missing for three to four weeks before it was returned to its owners in a plastic bag, along with the letter.
The abuse had allegedly taken place in Edgefield Plains in Punggol.
Mr Tan was informed of the case by a friend who works at the veterinary clinic which the owners had taken the abused cat to. He did not name the clinic.
The cat's fate is unclear, but Mr Tan said in his Facebook post that the cat was in its "last moments and may leave this world any time".
