Man fined $5,000 for keeping dog exposed to sun and rain with little sustenance
A broker who repeatedly left his dog trapped on an apartment balcony without enough food and water has been fined $5,000 for animal cruelty.
Roy Ling Chung Yee, 36, caused "unnecessary suffering" after exposing the border collie to the elements for up to six hours a day.
The abuse lasted for half a year until the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) stepped in and called the police.
Ling, who lives alone at a condominium in Selegie, has now been convicted under the Animals and Birds Act - the first such case in recent years.
