Stray dog saved by Hougang’s democracy

Posted on 29 April 2013

Politically-conscious and socially-aware Hougang residents stick it to authoritarian, dog-killing bastards.

About 50 Hougang residents rushed to the scene of a dog-killing to put an end to the state-sanctioned brutality.

A group of 50 Hougang residents rushed to the scene of a stray dog weeping for help as it was in the midst of being brutally murdered.

The incident took place at about 1030 p.m. last night after a stray dog was spotted and reported to the police, who called in the dog catchers.

The madness only ended two hours later when animal welfare advocates showed up on the scene to put a stop to the senseless killing, which reminded many of the type of violence that took place during the Japanese Occupation.

Witnesses said the dog-catchers were likely to have been activated by the AVA or police, who used a spiked rope to catch and kill the dog, ensuring that it dies a slow and painful death, turning its demise into a public spectacle.

The dog’s pitiful and blood curdling cries were meant to send a warning to all the stray dogs, cats and birds in the vicinity that their days were also numbered.

However, the cries only attracted the politically-aware and socially-conscious Hougang residents, who sprung into action and demonstrated the power of a people-led democracy.

About 50 residents assisted the dog in defending against the AVA-appointed assassins, until animal welfare volunteers showed up.

Self-styled political pundit, Eric de Yaya, said: “If this dog murder occurred in Tanjong Pagar GRC, for example, I doubt citizens would have taken any action to help.”

He added: “How can anyone be spurred to help a poor animal when they haven’t even voted in a general election before?”

The dog that Hougang's democracy saved.
