SINGAPORE - The cat that was found severed in half at Marine Crescent on Oct 28 was killed by dogs, the Singapore Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said.
In a Facebook post on Oct 29, SPCA said that its vets had conducted a thorough investigation after the cat's carcass was brought back to its premises.
"We have arrived at the finding that the cat's state has been wrought by the action of dogs from the community, and are ruling out the cat's condition being caused by sole human agency," SPCA said in the post.
The organisation also added that it has sent the carcass to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) for an independent post-mortem.
The cat's gruesome end was first highlighted by Cat Welfare Society volunteer Randy Wong, who posted an SOS message on Facebook at around 7pm on Oct 28.
Another Facebook user, Gowri Thamotharan responded that SPCA was on the scene with the police at 8.20pm.
Many netizens had taken to social media to express their sorrow and anger at the horrific act.
The Straits Times reports that some netizens are also unwilling to accept SPCA's findings that the act was not committed by humans.
In a reply to the organisation's post, Facebook user Jubellina L. Hui Min commented: "It doesn't make any sense that the dogs could arrange the cat's body nicely "after killing it"."
