I can imagine as he knew an angel in disguise was saving him. Animals have instinct and they know who are their friends and saviours and who are not {good}

I look forward and pray for his speedy recovery! If there is anything you need us to do... donate food or ANYTHING... please do let us know.... Every little things count and you can count on me helping!

RE : Dog - Wood Shoved Down Throat, Leg & Neck Tied Tight To Pole by KTM Station Staff, Malaysia
YB & YM replies on the above matter are noted with thanks.

We appreciate YB & YM quick response in handling the complain regarding the above mentioned cruelty. Please note that after the unpleasant incident was highlighted in Malaysiakini, KTM President Dr Aminuddin Adnan has made a statement which is truly disgusting (as per attached below). In his statement, he has confirmed that the cruelty was took place at KTM Komuter Kepong Sentral Station. However, he defended that he has helped the public in eliminating a nuisance (herein referred to the abused dog) . Worse still, he urged the public to appreciate his staff's cruelty act.

Kindly take note that he is not a nobody, but a respectable high ranking officer ! His statement not only discredits him, but also shows that he is a heartless human. Instead of conducting an investigation on the animal cruelty case and punished his staff who is at fault, he chosed to pledge his support on inhumane act in order to cover them.

For YB & YM information, after the wide explosure of this extreme cruelty case in the major press, animal blog, animal forum, as well as world wide web, many readers, bloggers including Muslim condemn his staff's cruelty act on the poor dog. (please refer to the below appended acticle in Malaysiakini by a Muslim). Moreover, it has drawn the attention of international animal welfare group - PETA. Dr Aminuddin Adnan should ashame of his unprofessional manner in dealing with public complain. It is inevitably that his department staff has committed a criminal under Section 43 of The Animal Act 1953 (revised 2006).

Lastly, we would like to reiterate that if his staff has gone against the law, the punishment has to be upon them. In this case, we are sorry to reiterate that Dr Aminuddin Adnan management skill and leadership are questionable.

Thank you


Yours faithfully
Justice for 1Malaysia

It sounds to me like KTM needs to take a good, hard look at its management and personnel. Or some higher authority needs to do it for them.

This horrible story was all over the news, alongside another one about a KTM employee who yelled abuse at a disabled passenger before kicking the man's wheelchair.

Either the company is hiring ill-behaved employees, or the working conditions are so bad that the employees feel the need to take out their frustrations on those who can't defend themselves. Either way, KTM looks like a company with big problems.

(And don't even get me started on the train service... {ohmygod})

UPDATE ON KTM DOG

Dear people,

sorry for the delay in updates. Have been busy taking care of some puppies down with distemper and parvo. Anyway, the KTM dog, that we have named KTM, is doing well and getting over his fear of people. He has a hearty appetite and this is a good sign. We have are also currently working on what we plan to do next in order to seek justice for KTM. We will keep everyone updated. Meanwhile, here are some pictures.

BTW Mr Soh of the DVS called and said that they want to take action but we would have to surrender the dog to them. What do you all think? Should we surrender vthe dog to DVS to allow them to see of they can take action or should we pursue the matter on our own? Feedback please. (feedback on d comment column of MDDB blog) :

Well, speaking with the interest of KTM in mind, I would advise NOT surrendering the poor dog to DVM unless you have 200% guarantee that KTM will be put in an environment and with a caregiver as loving and secure as that which he is currently enjoying in order to recuperate and recover from that recent Hell-ordeal.

After all, KTM is a dog, with feelings of emotions with the capacity to feel love, happiness, joy as well as suffer feelings of pain, fear and terror and be deeply traumatised and scarred by these ordeals, just like any human being.

He is certainly not some piece of wood, furniture or train wagon that can be tossed here and there and not feel or be affected negatively by it all.

Where is he going to live in a government department? And who is committed to go in regularly several times a day to provide him with nutritious food and affection, taking him for happy walks and giving him the warm and loving hugs there?

Or is he simply going to be treated as a court exhibit? Why, I really think you guys can (and should) continue to keep him and take good care of him, and then take him to court on dates of hearing, can that not be done? KTM will be a much happier dog and no one can then argue that they chained him up because he was one mean, ferocious and dangerous dog at the train station and deserved all that rough action rendered on him the other day. Why, if you hand KTM over to DVM and they neglect him there, he might well turn up in court a picture full of fear, aggression and confusion later, and really look like a nasty, bad and mad dog, frothing in the mouth, through no fault of his!

After all, humans get to continue to live comfortably at home, unless you are the guilty party that needs to be confined in prison, right? For some humans, they only take away your passports so you cannot flee the country and you can still live in your homes and go to court on dates of the hearings, right?

Canine group to sue KTMB over stick-in-a-dog

Tying up a stray dog with a stick shoved down in throat could see national rail operator Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad (KTMB) in a court house soon.

Canine welfare group, Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB), is pursuing legal action against KTMB for allegedly torturing the dog, ironically named KTM for the place where it was found.

“We’ll file a civil suit,” MDDB coordinator M. Mala told The Malaysian Insider. “Once we file, it’ll be a precedent.”

The KTM dog incident first garnered public attention through a complaint letter titled “Ghastly animal abuse at Kepong KTM Station,” written by M. Nisha to Malaysiakini on March 17 this year, where the writer explained how she and a group of commuters had found the dog in a tortured condition two days earlier.

KTMB had issued a statement in response, admitting that their staff had caught the stray dog and tied it to a fence. However, KTMB denied intentionally shoving a piece of wood down the dog’s throat, stating that the dog bit on the wood and refused to let go of it after KTMB staff tried to use the wood as bait.

KTMB further explained that the reason they caught the stray dog was because it had bitten passengers before, though none resulted in serious injuries. But concerned commuters alerted the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) which immediately went to the station but failed to find the dog as it had been released. However, the SPCA team managed to locate the brown patchy dog at the Selayang dog pound about a week later, upon which they handed it to MDDB.

KTM is seen here tied up and with a piece of wood stuck in its mouth.
“Our lawyers are looking at how members of the public can be plaintiffs,” said Mala. Currently, the lawyers are in the process of drafting an affidavit. The civil suit is expected to be filed in a couple of months, Mala added.

“We have animal activists coming up offering to be plaintiffs,” she said. When asked on the amount of damages MDDB is seeking from KTMB, Mala said that they are not seeking for damages. “We don’t want their money,” said Mala point-blank.

Instead, Mala said that they want KTMB to contribute to any animal welfare group, though not necessarily MDDB. In terms of contribution, KTMB could contribute to things like infrastructure, she added.

MDDB is a canine welfare initiative spearheaded by the NGO Community Development and Integration Initiative (CDII). They have rescued and placed hundreds of puppies in homes since 2008, according to Mala.

The dog, KTM, is now residing at a veterinary services clinic, she said, and the MDDB is currently looking to adopt him or foster him. Reactions from other animal groups towards the alleged KTM dog abuse have been varied.

“We have all the laws. Unfortunately, authorities don’t use it,” SPCA chairman Christine Chin told The Malaysian Insider. Malaysian laws on animal cruelty are considered weak compared to similar laws in other countries. Section 44 of the Animal Act 1953 (2006 Amendment) punishes animal cruelty offenders with a RM200 fine or six months imprisonment.

In contrast, Singapore imposes a RM23,000 fine or one year imprisonment. Hong Kong animal cruelty offenders are fined RM90,400 or three years imprisonment. Thailand’s fines for animal cruelty range from RM100 to RM10,000.

Although animal lovers had petitioned the government in 2007 to increase the fine from RM200 to RM10,000, and to increase the jail term from six months to two years after the horrific abuse of a German Shepherd named Sheena came to light, nothing was changed. “Where there is no enforcement, abuse continues,” Chin said.

MDDB Notice Board :

Good bye & RIP, KTM Abused Dog

When it rains, it pours. KTM, the dog abused by the KTM workers, died in his sleep yesterday. He was very frail but had a hearty appetite. It was only on his last day that he showed some respiratory problems and it is believed he was infected with distemper. We think he must have been infected in the ten days he spent at the Selayang pound given that almost all the puppies rescued there by Animalcare tested distemper positive. Many had died from the time of rescue.

There was someone called Leong who wanted to see KTM and claimed she had been feeding him for the last two to three years at the station. Leong also told us that the KTM workers often tormented and abused the poor dog. When we told her to wait for a while until he stopped being so panicky, Leong had said KTM may die soon because he had been very frail. We are sorry Leong, for telling you to wait - because you were right - he was indeed frail and died before you could see him. But we are still not able to understand why someone who cared so much for him allowed him to be continuously abused by the KTM workers.

The only comfort we have now is knowing that KTM was given love and attention for the period he spent under the care of our fosterer - who ensured that he was fed with his favourite chicken everyday. What has happened to KTM will only push us to pursue our civil suit against KTM, the Selayang Municipal council and also the Klang Municipal Council. We had initially not planned to initiate legal action against the Klang Municipal Council but after learning that their dog catchers had to actually be taught to catch dogs - we were told we had grounds to sue.

Canine abuse: Animal rights group mulls suing KTMB and Selayang council

PETALING JAYA: The saga of a stray dog found chained on March 15 at the Kepong Sentral railway station with a length of wood stuffed into its mouth has ended sadly 46 days later with its death.

With the canine's death, animal rights body Malaysian Dogs Deserve Better (MDDB) are now mulling legal action against KTM Bhd (KTMB) for allowing such an incident to happen at its premises. MDDB representative, M. Mala told The Paper That Cares the organisation would hold a meeting today with members and lawyers to discuss further action.

"We do not need KTMB's money. "The lawsuit does not mean we want monetary compensation. Our claims would include getting KTMB to adopt an animal shelter or to sponsor the 'trap, neuter, release' programme."

The canine's death is just another reason why justice should be sought against animal abuse. She said this was not the first such incident to have resulted in an animal's death.

The dog's plight was noticed by a commuter on March 15, who had then complained about the canine's maltreatment to KTMB staff and the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS).

KTMB president Dr Aminuddin Adnan confirmed the stray dog was captured by railway staff on March 14. The dog had apparently been roaming the Kepong station for almost two years and was a nuisance — attacking and biting passengers at both the station's parking area and ticketing counter.

KTMB had lodged several reports with the council on this stray dog. The canine was captured by KTMB staff a day after the last report was lodged with the council. But, upon receiving the commuter's complaint, the stray dog — now aptly dubbed "KTM" — was released and it had apparently, since, stayed away from the Kepong station.

Some time later, "KTM" was captured by the council and identified by Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) Selangor members at the council's pound. The canine was bailed out and handed to MDDB for rehabilitation.

"The the council's pound was very unhygienic and dirty. Most of the puppies sent there became infected. We suspect "KTM" might also have been infected in the 10 days at the Selayang pound," said Mala.

"The dog's health condition was improving, despite being frail earlier. But, on his last day, he showed some respiratory problems and it was believed he was infected with distemper."

"KTM" was found to have died in his sleep at 8pm by a staff who had come to feed the canine. MDDB is also mulling suing the council as well for having failed to adhere to the guidelines provided by Department of Veterinary Services in managing its animal pound.

The council's public relations officer Mohamad Zin Masoad said it was up to MDDB to decide whether to sue the council. "As far as we know, we have been managing the pounds as stated in the guidelines."

Admitting the one-off incident where the pound was overcrowded, he said it happened due to the lack of staff to properly manage the area at that time.

"Do not judge us with that one-off incident. We have been working hard to ensure the improvement of the pound's condition and the well being of the animals there." Zin added the council was always open to discussion from any animal rights group for the betterment of the pound's condition.

KTMB declined to comment on MDDB's claims at Press time. SPCA Selangor assistant manager of public relations and marketing, Jacinta Johnson, expressed her sadness over the loss of "KTM", saying the death was terrible due to the circumstances he was in. "Such animal abuse isn't something new. But, what happened to "KTM" was simply terrible and unacceptable."
