Underwater World Singapore criticised for ‘sub-standard’ animal living conditions

Summary:Animal welfare groups have called on Underwater World Singapore (UWS) to cease all animal shows and have called on the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) to respond, noting that UWS appeared to have violated laws by making an injured dolphin perform in shows.Health checks are conducted regularly and the results show that, apart from the cancer, which is being specifically treated, the dolphin is generally in good health,” said a UWS spokesperson, adding that it does not participate in any performance or programme.

Opinion:In my opinion, I think that animals should not perform when they are sick as some diseases are contagious and may spread to people. The animals should also not perform when the are seek as they would have to receive stress and will be felling worse.
