Man punches, kicks dog and lifts it by its neck on a leash

Two videos showing a man hitting, kicking as well as dragging and lifting a dog by its neck on a leash have sparked outrage online.

The incident is believed to have occurred at a terrace house in Loyang Green this morning (May 23).

Facebook user Maimunah Mohadi uploaded two videos of the incident at about 9.30am.

The videos shows the man talking down to a Siberian Husky and forcefully dragging it around by its leash numerous times, in the presence of two other dogs.

He also punches the dog in the face once and kicks it twice in the 40 seconds of video recording.

A friend of Mainunah's told Stomp that "she has heard the dogs many times yelping in pain but today was the first time she managed to video" it.

Mainunah has reported the incident to the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA).

The case is currently under investigation.

In response to queries by Stomp, a spokesperson for The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said:

"The SPCA was informed of this case this morning, by a concerned member of the public.

"As we were greatly shocked by the contents of the video and deeply concerned for the dog's safety, we immediately informed the AVA whilst pressing for urgent action to be taken.

"We are relieved that the AVA acted swiftly, facilitating the removal of the dog from the owner's home.

"The animal is now under the care of the SPCA, and has been sent for a thorough physical examination and X-rays.

"The SPCA condemns this blatant act of animal abuse and will work closely with the authorities for stern action to be taken against the perpetrator.

"We thank everyone for their concern and for speaking up on behalf of the animal."
