Yesterday. an adult colugo (flying lemur) with a baby was being shot down
and mishandled by a group of men at Petai Trail, MacRitchie. The mother
colugo suffered severe fractures and had to be put down to sleep after
being sent to the zoo. The baby is now in our care- hopefully it will
survive without its mother.

Its sad that we have such idiots in singapore.
According to witnesses, the culprits are 3 Chinese men aged between 40-50.
They were speaking in Hokkien and behaved aggressively. Apparently, they
have come prepared for this "hunting trip" with sling-shots and bags. They
escaped in different directions as the crowd gathered to intervene.
