Man fined $5,000 for unnecessary suffering to dog

The case on Mr Roy Ling who was convicted of animal cruelty under section 42(1) of the animals and birds act.

SINGAPORE - Roy Ling Chun Yee was fined $5,000 for subjecting his border collie to “unnecessary suffering”.

He was found guilty of animal cruelty by exposing his pet to sun and rain on the balcony, and not providing it with enough food and water.

Concerned neighbours notified the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in 2011. It then alerted the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority and gathered evidence over a period of three months.

Ling could have been fined $10,000 and jailed up to a year.
