The root cause of the stray dogs and rats problem at Bt Batok is HUMAN! Who abandon the dogs in the first place ? Likely these dogs have formal owners who did not even bother to do sterilized them.
There are black sheep amongst feeders. They should be fined for littering for being so lazy and inconsiderate. Such irresponsible feeders do not represent other strays care givers.
Dogs do not breed rats. So stop blaming the strays. The rats population exploded because various govt officials are practising their taiji as usual. The concern area MP is busy fixing MPs of opposition ward. The issue was not dealt with until it was all over the internet and MSM forcing action from them.
So folks like 'wolaop' should think deeper and stop being rude calling other stupid in his/her article.
The earth does not belong to the human species alone. "The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man" - Charles Darwin. These strays are in undeveloped area, and yet folks like 'wolaop' is so bitter and intolerant of the strays existence.
"If any culture has a sympathy for its animal companions, then it has a chance to become sensitive and caring in all respects." We can only pray that folks like 'wolaop' forms the minority, as society will be richer and kinder with less them.
