No More Dead Chickens, but ..

Some time ago, I blogged about the stretch of the Kallang River between Bishan Road and Braddell Road. I said that this stretch of the Kallang River once had the unsavory reputation of being called the Dead Chicken River because kampong folks simply discarded their dead animals into the river. Thankfully, that problem no longer exists today because modern Singaporeans are better educated and more civilized.

But I guess I was wrong. A picture is worth a thousand words.

I hope the person who discarded this dead cat into the canal did not get the idea from reading my blog.

The Kallang River where it meets the CTE.

Nowadays, not many Singaporeans rear chickens and pigs, but they certainly use a lot of plastic.

Give that cat some credit leh. Maybe it died after catching and eating a contaminated fish from the canal?

One time I saw some Bangladeshi workers catching fish there with a net. Too bad I didn't have my camera with me. They must have very strong stomaches!

Maybe the cat-torturer and killer who made news recently is responsible.

Chun See, we all HAVE strong stomaches. Have you forgotten where our Newater come from? Heheh.
