Woman jailed 4 weeks for killing parrot with bamboo pole in Sengkang flat
Contents From Asia One
Lucky the parrot did not live up to its name after it pecked the face of its owner’s stepmother.
Tran Thi Thuy Hang opened the pet bird’s cage and bludgeoned it to death with a bamboo pole before tossing it down a rubbish chute.
The 38-year-old Vietnamese manicurist was sentenced to four weeks’ jail yesterday after pleading guilty last month to ill-treating the bird.
Ms Yu Mei Ling, 26, had Lucky on her shoulder in the living room of her Sengkang flat when Hang returned home from work on Oct 27 last year.
