Outrage over Malaysian brutality against kitten, reward offeredWorld | 20 Jul 2020 12:50 pm
An animal rights group in Malaysia is offering a 10,000 ringgit (HK$18,181) reward for anyone with information of an incident where a kitten was set on fire, state media reported.
The Malaysian Animal Association said In a Facebook post on Sunday: "Animal Malaysia received incomplete information on the incident which was believed to have occurred in Pahang. But there were no details for us to further investigate.
"Animal Malaysia is increasing the reward from RM3,000 to RM10,000 for any individual or group who can confirm the incident where a kitten was set on fire by pouring gasoline before lighting the cat.”
The association hoped that legal action could be taken against the offender if the incident was found to be true.
A 44-second video of the incident has set the social media abuzz, where many condemned the act and called for the perpetrator to be severely punished.
The public have been urged to share information on the incident via WhatsApp at 011-20901097.
