    That night, he apologised for his actions. On Wednesday evening, he repeated the apology as he spoke to The New Paper from his home - a rented terrace house that now houses seven dogs, three of which are his.

    When The New Paper visited the Chiams' residence, they saw that the dogs were allowed to walk around freely. One of the fridges in the kitchen was packed with frozen salmon fillet and tuna for the dogs.

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."
