She said that the dog’s owner lives at Blk 403 Yishun Ave 6.

Facebook user Hari Shankar who responded to Lynn’s post said that this has been going on for very long and that he had approached the owners to advise them countless times.

“But they just refuse to change their way of drying the dog,” he said and added that they lived on the 5th floor of the block.

The dog can be seen cowering under a shade in the playground in one of the pictures Hari shared.
Netizens who responded to Lynn’s message expressed outrage and hoped that the relevant authorities will take action to stop this animal abuse.
