A netizen, Loke Peng Fai, shared a photo onto the Facebook group Singapore Wildlife Sighting, of a monitor lizard with a cable tie around its neck.
Here is the story:
“It pains my heart to see this picture.
The monitor lizard is suffering and dying of slow death. Its neck was tied and it is choking on its own food.
Did someone do this on purpose? Or is it trapped by the litter we throw? We will never know the answer. One thing for sure is that it is caused by humans.
Please don’t litter. Treasure our nature and save our environment.
Nparks have been informed. I understand that they are aware of this and trying to get to the lizard for some time now but have not been successful
Just want to clarify one point, I didn’t notice the ‘clamp’ when I took the photo. Only much later at night after I downloaded the photo then I realized what happened.
The main purpose of this post is to educate the public and to create awareness.”
