TRS reader Ting Ann said about 50 Hougang residents heard the cries of a stray dog and rushed to the scene. It seemed that a spiked rope was being used to capture the dog and the residents were trying to stop the dog catchers.
He said: "The incident happened on April 27, around 10.30pm and lasted about one to two hours.
"It started with a stray dog that was around the neighborhood for years already. After that, some residents made a police report regarding this stray dog.
"The police activated the AVA to come down to catch the dog. They were trying to catch it with a spiked rope. The dog was bleeding and was barking very loudly.
"Residents living in Hougang heard it and immediately rushed to the scene to defend the dog to prevent it from being caught and possibly put down.
"The commotion ended with at least 50 to 60 people at the scene with 6 police officers, a group of welfare association members and a few AVA catchers.
"In the end the dog was safely brought to a vet and to the Animal Welfare Association."
