SINGAPORE (Web Desk) –  A 43-year-old woman was sentenced to 10 days’ jail and fined S$3,100 for causing her dogs’ unnecessary suffering, keeping them without a licence and failing to comply with an order by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) to help with investigations.

Chng Leng Khim kept three dogs to deter her landlady from entering the property. However, when she, moved out of the house without informing the landlady in June 2013, she left the dogs — a black poodle, a black chow chow and a fawn bull mastiff — behind to fend for themselves.


The dogs, which were then about five years old, were later found by the AVA in a miserable condition — they were thin and unwell, infected with ticks and covered by their urine and faces.
