A photo circulating online shows a deer, slowly dying by the roadside along Mandai Road.
While we are not unfamiliar with the concept of animals getting hit by vehicles (accidentally of course), we have not seen something this large. The deer was seen to be in pain before hitting it’s final moments, lying on the grass patch with it’s mouth bleeding.
We know that the person who took this photo has contacted ACRES (Animal Concerns Research & Education Society, who also does wildlife rescue) and that the case has been handed to NEA. The culprit who hit this animal has not been found.
This is not the first case of a wild animal being hit by vehicles in Singapore. Over the last few years, we have seen roadkill such as wild boars and monkeys.
