!!!RM100 Fine for Dog Abuser!!! Can't Post

BY CHIN MUI YOON

PLEADED GUILTY: Lien trying to dodge photographers when leaving the Shah Alam magistrate’s court yesterday.SHAH ALAM: An engineer admitted to grossly neglecting his German Shepherd and letting it suffer unduly, and was slapped with a RM100 fine.

Douglas Lien San Chong, 46, was charged with allowing his dog's health to deteriorate and its body to be infested with ticks and not providing it with medical care.

Veterinarians tried saving the dog but decided to put it to sleep to end its misery.

Lien said in mitigation that he had been “too busy with his personal matters and house moving” to look after the canine.

“The tick infestation was a small problem and there was enough food and water for the dog, which was already old and sickly anyway,” Lien, who was unrepresented, told the court.

He was charged in a magistrate's court here yesterday with committing the offence on Aug 18 at No 38, USJ 17/3B.

VICTIM OF ABUSE: This was how Veterinary Services Department officers found Sheena on Aug 18 at its owner’s house in Subang Jaya.Magistrate Hafizah Abdul Rajak fined him RM100.

Lien was charged under Section 44(1)(d) of the Animal Ordinance 1953, which provides for a fine of up to RM200 and a jail term of up to six months.

On Aug 18, Kuala Lumpur Veterinary Services Department officers seized the dog, Sheena, which was suffering from malnutrition and severe tick fever.

The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals plans to file an appeal at the High Court today, seeking the maximum penalty.

Its animal inspector Sabrina Yeap said a fine of RM100 would not serve to deter anyone from abusing animals.

The post-mortem, she added, showed that the dog had an empty stomach, shrunken kidneys, a brittle ribcage, indicating inadequate nutrition over the years, and haemorrhage in its lungs, a sign of pneumonia.

Moreover, its nails were long and curved into its paws, causing pain when it tried to walk.

Department enforcement unit head Zainuddin Isma Yatim said this was one of the worst cases of animal abuse he had ever seen.

“How could anyone cause an animal to suffer so much,” he said.

In December, a 39-year-old businesswoman was jailed three days and fined RM200 for abusing her pet dog.

RM100 fine is certainly not enough.

'Lien was charged under Section 44(1)(d) of the Animal Ordinance 1953, which provides for a fine of up to RM200 and a jail term of up to six months.'

Perhaps the jail term is much better to serve these people right. Just because the dog is old doesnt mean you love it less. Our dogs are meant to be loved no matter what happens and to be treated as part of a family.

Be responsible towards yous pets. Think it over before you guys adopt/plan to own a pet. Puppies are cute to look at, as well as to play with. Like human, they grow old too. THINK before you guys devote to bringing home a pet !

PETS have the RIGHTS to be LOVED and they DESERVE THE FULLEST ATTENTION AND TIME FROM US.

This particular SOB should be caged(jailed) for six months.

All the excuses are so lame. May we hope that his next life would be a tick residing

on a constipated camel together with millions of his kind in the middle of the Sahara!

Hey Chris, at least your alpha knows how to hide his face properly!Ha!Ha! whereas,

this kutu dares to show part of his shit face! Guess this so called 'educated'

engineer SOB can afford a suit too! Hey! wear a plastic bag to cover your head lah!

Malu, Bodoh!Hey Sabrina, ask for a jail term lah! Rm100? Rm200? He just moved

to a new house lah! No sweat, he can pay. What is Rm200?

What say you, guys?

Cheers,

Goldii

The pic of the GS makes my stomach churn. Felt so sick.

I agree that a jail term would hv been a better deterent. To these ppl wat is RM100. But a jail term means cannot work for that term n he may even loose his job.

Wonder how come got ppl so bad. If no time, better to give away. Not torture it.

Fine RM100 is not only not good enough but is really an insult to the animal abuse law. The man should be sentence to 6 months jail then will be good. Such a useless person who cannot even take care of a dog. How can he even take care of his own family.

Generally speaking you have a good heart but your suggestive statement on the address is just going to get other people into trouble, suppose you never did think about that. As for the fine issue, what is RM1,000.00, just like to find out, you show your dogs and what would one of your pups fetch in the market, much more than a RM1,000.00 For whatever the value of a dog is or for that matter a cat or whatever pets one may have, if the fine is not more RM3,000.00 it has no effect.

In short, people like S.P.C.A. should convince the authority to change the law so the courts hands are not tied.

chrisong

another sad case.. perhaps i suggest a fine of the person's 1 month salary & 1 week sentence. 1 week in jail will definitely scared them from commit another crime. anyway juz my personal view. Smile

This guy is already into trouble. I did't suggest anything mah. Just to point out where is this guy stay only mah. And I only ask did anyone stay around that area cause maybe somebody know this guy.Unsure

HahahaSly RM3000 you think have effect meh. Why don't you say RM100,000 for the abuser??? I am sure that will be more effective. Sure 0% in animal cruelty in Malaysia.

kysin schatzie gives blessings to Sheena [In reply to] Can't Post

Unsure hie there chris,

In regards to that piece of news, i'm equally disgusted, frustrated and sad as any animal lovers out there.

What is this RM100 and where is Justice?? it's like that amount is equivalent to the value of life, which after bought, can be treated as he wish - abuse, abandon and let alone without any affection and love and then pay rm100 for any misdeeds! this is so disappointing!

Is there something that we can do about to promise that Lien idiot a term in prison, a heavier penalty, and what not, whipping!!!

I so wish i can personally cast all the living ticks, fleas, and lice all over him n then throw him on a deserted island without food for months!!!! let him have his own taste of the sufferings he's caused of Sheena.. What an Idiot!! arghh..

He's such a heartless airhead!! and to think that he actually gave those stupid excuses.

May Sheena rest in peace and be well over the rainbow

And i hope that we can do something for you

ps: does signing petitions help?

Re:!!RM100 Fine for Dog Abuser!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi All,

I found out he has already moved. In fact, he had moved and had left Sheena alone in the house. He would go back to feed her "once in a while" (according to my sources). As for the publication of his address, I don't think there was any "hidden agenda". It was part of the charge - the location where the offence took place. I think we should not read too much into that

A neighbour took pity on Sheena and climbed into the compound to feed her and clean the area. Finally she realised that she couldn't do enough and called SPCA.

Apparently the new onwer of the house had to pay about RM1,000 to fumigate the house because it was so badly tick infested.

As for the fine, I wonder how the Magistrate could have felt it was equitable to impose a fine of RM100. It is even less than the cost of putting Sheena to sleep and disposing of her properly. Maybe Mr. Engineer Douglas Lien had to spend so much money moving house he had no more money left and felt that paying a RM100 fine is cheaper.

I believe he is still somewhere in the USJ area and he gives Chinese language tuition.

I think his tuition business must be bad because he had to sell his house and could not afford to look after his pet properly.

BTW, the neighbour who took care of Sheena is a Malay. Sadly we often hear or read of generalisation about Malays being anti dogs and anti dog owners. But in this case, I would not blame her if she now developes some extremely negative attitude about dog onwers. On behalf of all animal lovers, I wish to say a BIG THANK YOU to this Malay Lady.

Goldii gives him too much credit by referring to him as a "so called 'educated' engineer." Unfortunately, a lot of people think that having gone to school or university or even having a professional qualification automatically makes one educated. To be "educated" implies a lot more than just having a piece of paper.

Douglas Lien may be a trained engineer, but looking at his behaviour, most certainly not an educated person. In a way, he is not unlike my Duchess who is trained but most definitely not educated. This comparison is actually most unfair to my dear Duchess

Hi Leecy,

How are you? Please note the key word "suggestive" so in short is what one writes in the forum that may cause others to act upon. I am responding to your posting simply due to the fact that I have read a number of your postings and you always say or reply with sense.
