It was reported the cow was sedated for a medical check-up but could not be revived subsequently.
Previously, the bovine said in May this year it was considering taking legal action against PAP’s Bukit Batok by-election candidate, Murali Pillai, for misappropriating its name as he called himself “Ah Mu”.
The Coney Island cow, which is, in fact, a bull, had made waves with Singapore citizens and traditionally been known as Niu, said then: “This is clearly a misappropriation of my likeness.”
“Anyone with a sense of hearing knows that ‘Ah Mu’ sounds just like ‘Ah Moo’. And the only things that go ‘Moo’ are me and my ilk.”
“And please quote me properly, I for sure did not say ‘elk’.”
“Since I’m the only cow around here, ‘Ah Moo’ definitely refers to me.”
“Moooreover, I do not want to be associated with a lopsided political process that is not proportional representation in its nomination, selection and election of public office holders and where gerrymandering is rife.”
“And where candidates are mooooootivated by a full-time MP salary.”
“Murali can moooooove voters by changing his name to something else.”
An autopsy has since revealed the cow died of internal organs complications.
