Appeal For Eye Witness Graphic Content Warning. On..



On 18th April 2023, 11:25pm, ACRES hotline received this screen recorded video from a concerned member of public from a story that is no longer available – the video shows a man and five others violently hitting a protected species Reticulated python, using crates at the bicycle stand of Boon Lay Place market. They later bring the python to notice board area beside a food stall and use a cleaver to chop the snake’s head until they confirm that the poor snake is dead.

Our investigations and interviews at 7am onsite today (19 April 2023) indicate that there are police cameras and some recollected a snake sighting at 1:30am 18 April 2023 (Tue) .

ACRES is shocked and disturbed by the celebratory tone and all the cheering in inflicting suffering and death to a voiceless protected native species, with no indication of calling someone for help (NParks or ACRES).

ACRES has submitted all the relevant information to NParks, who is now investigating this further.

It is alarming that despite many educational efforts, violence towards the voiceless still lurks in our society. Such incidents involving killing/hurting snakes have been happening repeatedly, and we hope that this case will result in prosecuting the individuals involved, serving a severe deterrence for the future of our animals in the community – whether a cute cuddly animal or a scaly reptile that many of us may be fearful of.

If you know of any individual in this video or have witnessed this act, please reach out to us at our 24-hour hotline 97837782 or email acrescrime@gmail.com by whatsapp/email/call. All information will be kept confidential.
