New footage believed to show community cat being flung from Hougang block surfaces

·1-min read

Footage that purportedly shows community cat falling after being thrown off a residential block in Hougang earlier this week has surfaced.

This morning, Jasmine Tan shared on the Hougang Community Cats Facebook group a clip from surveillance footage allegedly showing a black cat named Tuxy, who was flung off Block 614 in Hougang Avenue 8 on Monday. Animal activists have been calling on the public for any witnesses or information on the tragedy.


In the clip, which happened at around 12:35pm, a black blob can be seen flying downwards.

Tan said Tuxy was fed by a feeder five minutes before the incident happened and speculated that “someone” was “stalking them.” Apparently, Tan said the feeder was “harassed and threatened” by a resident days before the cat was found dead.

She also disputed claims that the feline was run over by a vehicle based on the blood splatter around the cat’s body found at a car park.

The Animal & Veterinary Service confirmed with Coconuts today that an investigation into the incident is ongoing and called upon the public to report any suspected cases of animal cruelty via their website or phone 1-800-476-1600.
