KUALA LUMPUR, June 24 — The Malaysian Animal Association is offering a RM3,000 reward to anyone who can provide information on or confirm the incident involving a man who butchered a cat in Pasar Meru in Klang recently.

In a Facebook post today, it said that according to sources, the perpetrator is suspected to be an employee of a snack shop in front of the market and is believed to be living in Batu Belah, Klang.

“According to a video just received by the Malaysian Animal Association, the man who is seen cutting up the cat is believed to be a Myanmar national and spoke in Malay,” said the association.

It added that a thorough investigation into the incident is necessary to identify the method used to kill the cat and the man’s intention, whether it (the cat) was intended to be used as food or for fun.

“Anyone with information on the incident can contact the Malaysian Animal Association (via WhatsApp) 014-6345464 so that an official report can be submitted to the authorities to investigate the case,” said the association

Meanwhile, the police have referred an investigation paper on a viral video of a kitten being thrown into a ditch by a security guard at a shopping centre in Petaling Jaya to the Veterinary Department for further action.

Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Shahrulnizam Ja’afar said that his team also issued a stern warning to the security guard involved.

A report was lodged on Tuesday (June 18) by a local woman who claimed to have seen the guard throw the kitten and then requested the help of the cleaning workers to save it.

“The 52-year-old woman, who works as a senior executive in the operations division of a broadcasting company in the area, took the cat to the animal clinic for treatment, and she filed a report because she was worried about the safety of other cats in the future.

“On June 22, the police also detected a video lasting 1 minute 56 seconds uploaded by the owner of the TikTok account, Suziey Signature, showing the video recording of the incident,” he said in a statement today.
