View: Muslims Too Must Treat Dogs Kindly
2nd Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Friday October 2, 2009I WOULD like to add to the comments by Chong Wooi Teang "Treat animals humanely" (The Star, Oct 1). I am a Muslim but it saddens me how stray animals, especially dogs, are handled by the authorities. Dogs are also God's creatures, and as such, do not deserve such cruel treatment. I notice that not much has been said about how our beloved Prophet treated animals with kindness. Perhaps this should be highlighted more. SHAMSIAH, Skudai.This article was taken from: The Star On...

View: Treat Animals Humanely
1st Oct 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Thursday October 1, 2009MY pleasant Sunday morning was spoilt when I saw how the Majlis Bandaran Ipoh (MBI) team handled the unwanted animals at my housing estate. I heard gunshots and the screams of dogs everywhere. I tried to stop such cruel handling towards the unwanted animals but was told by the MBI gunmen to mind my own business. I cannot accept the way the MBI handled the unwanted animals. I would like to appeal to the relevant authorities to find a softer handling approach towards the un...

Article: Mudball Worries
29th Sep 2009, by Green Animal Shelter & Sanctuary (GrASS)

Tuesday September 29, 2009THE article on Effective Micro-organism mudballs (Mudball marvel?, StarTwo Sept 15) serves as an eye-opener regarding the alternative and potential of utilising microbes for environmental management. However, as a lecturer in microbiology, I would like to share some of my concerns.

The river's flow ranges from murky white to a bright shade of orange and the waters are so viscous that they barely ri...

We visited one of the few restaurants at Fraser's Hill and asked the owner about the tarantulas, con...
