The Hamster Society (Singapore) (HSS) mentioned in an Instagram submit on Sunday (5 June) that it was alerted that a number of Syrian and dwarf hamsters on the HDB block’s frequent space had not been given meals or water for days.

When volunteers arrived on the block, they discovered lifeless and rotting hamsters in the identical cages as dwelling ones. They described what they discovered as “maggot stuffed carcasses, mummified carcasses with nothing left however pores and skin and bones, with a stench of dying and ammonia from pee and poo”.

The surviving hamsters got water and fruit from passers-by. HSS mentioned that a few of them might need even cannibalised the lifeless hamsters, because the our bodies had been hollowed out.

HSS mentioned that, with Singapore within the midst of a sizzling spell with temperatures as much as 36 deg C, the hamsters would have had suffered within the warmth with no clear ingesting water within the cages.

The society has reported the case to the Animal and Veterinary Companies. The surviving hamsters are being seen on the vet, and will probably be in quarantine to be assessed whether or not they’re in adoptable situation.
