Dog Allegedly Terrorized on Camera Deserves Justice

Target: Ms. Jessica Kwok, Group Director of the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS), Singapore

Goal: Investigate the distressing case of alleged animal abuse captured in a TikTok video.

A concerning incident has emerged from Pek Kio Hawker Centre in Farrer Park, Singapore, captured in a TikTok video by user ‘aventmetier’ and uploaded on Thursday, 9 November. The footage, which has since been deleted, reportedly depicted an elderly woman accompanied by a brown-furred dog. Observers witnessed an allegedly disturbing display of behavior from the woman towards the animal. She was reportedly seen using her cane not just as a support but as a tool of intimidation against her pet. The dog, in response, apparently showed signs of fear each time the cane was raised, bracing for a possible hit.

Adding complexity to the situation, the woman seemingly simultaneously engaged in light-hearted exchanges with other individuals present, contrasting sharply with her treatment of the dog. In one notable instance, she appeared to threaten the dog directly with a swift motion of the cane. This paradoxical behavior was not only alarming but raised questions about the well-being of the pet. The original poster of the video expressed a deep sense of unease at witnessing such a scene, highlighting the stress it caused them.

This video, which garnered over 100,000 views, has drawn significant attention online. Concerned viewers have actively sought the intervention of authorities, tagging the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in their comments. Take immediate action to ensure the safety and well-being of the dog involved.


Dear Ms. Jessica Kwok,

We address this letter to you, as the Group Director of the Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) in Singapore, to express our grave concern over a recent event of potential animal abuse at Pek Kio Hawker Centre. A TikTok video, now removed, portrayed a distressing scene where an elderly woman, with her canine companion, exhibited behavior that could amount to animal cruelty.

This episode has sparked considerable alarm among netizens and animal welfare advocates. It is crucial that the AVS takes prompt and decisive action in this regard. We urge you to deploy all necessary resources to thoroughly investigate this case. It is imperative to ascertain the facts, evaluate the animal’s condition, and ensure its safety.

Our plea underscores the broader commitment to animal welfare and the upholding of compassionate treatment towards all living beings. This incident serves as a stark reminder of the need for vigilance and responsiveness in cases of animal mistreatment.

We trust that under your guidance, the AVS will act swiftly to address this situation. Through your intervention, we hope to affirm Singapore’s stance against animal cruelty and reinforce the importance of humane treatment towards all creatures.
