Finally DVS Penang Responds To Naomi's Death

Many of you who have been following Naomi's story and signed the Petition asking for justice for Naomi as well as for all the other animals at the Jabatan Perkhidmatan Haiwan Bukit Mertajam (JPHBM).

You will remember that before Raihana came to us, she had written to the authorities asking them to investigate Naomi's case and to exercise more care towards all the existing animals at JPHBM.

She did not get any response from anyone. Now after Davina Goh's submitted her Petition with 208 signatures and the queries from the Press, Raihana finally has a response through a written letter from the Director of the Department of Veterinary Services Pulau Pinang addressed to Davina Goh from the Remembering Sheena Campaign.

We have posted this letter here below. Might I add that Raihana is not satisfied with their "explanation" and Raihana's response will be posted in a separate blog.

Click on the letters below to enlarge and read.

    Dr. Mohd. Zamri,

    After reading "your" side of the story, I still think that District Veterinary Service, Bukit Mertajam, should be "blamed blatantly" for Naomi's death.

    Your letter sound so arrogant, and even belittling the intellect of all the 208 people who signed the petition, all those "true believers of justice and animal welfare".

    Cruelty is cruelty, don't call it any other way!

    Well said, Sharon. As you can see from Raihana's letter in response posted on the blog, the DVS letter has hurt her so badly.

    She feels like she is on trial and to be blamed.

    These people are so insensitive and cruel. They only think about saving their own skin and never about the precious lives they lose or hurt or those grieving for Naomi.

    thanks for your comments. as much as i want to read the letter as objectively as possible, i also can't help but feel that the doctor has attempted to clean his department's hands of all blame over what had happened. even Raihana has admitted that even after all the anger and frustration she has gone through, she has admitted that she is responsible to a certain degree, and for anyone in her position to do so, is a sign of great insight, with respect and credibility due.

    but regardless, we got a reply. and i'm really glad about that.

    thanks again,
