AVS’ Ms Kwok said that roaming animals do not have optimum living conditions, and typically do not have routine access to food, shelter and treatment.

“They may suffer injuries or even die due to various reasons such as fights or attacks by other animals, getting knocked down by vehicles or even falling from height,” she said, worrying that securing animal well-being is a shared social duty.

Members of the general public can report thought cases of animal cruelty to AVS at or call their Animal Response Centre at 1800-476-1600.
