If you received via WhatsApp or on Facebook a post about dog and cat meat satay being sold at Geylang Serai Bazaar, please be warned that it is fake news.
The post by an Alan Tan shows four pictures:
- A picture of four men preparing raw meat skewers
- A picture of raw meat skewers left in the open
- A picture of a man arrested by policemen
- A picture of a dog skinned alive
The post has since been removed. Netizens also pointed out on the post that his pictures are fake and asked for them to be removed.
According to Lianhe Wanbao, the rumours circulated are false and only the photo which shows a man being arrested is truly taken in Singapore.
Last week, 22 illegal workers were arrested in a raid.
And for your information, Stall 124 which is supposedly selling dog and cat meat satay, actually sells Dengdeng, which is a beef version of the Chinese BBQ pork slices.
According to the National Environment Agency investigations are ongoing.
