Is it illegal to feed stray animals in Singapore?
There are currently no legal provisions prohibiting the feeding of stray animals that frequent Singapore’s neighbourhood estates, such as cats. However, in recent years, it is still possible to see posters put up by Town Councils discouraging or even warning residents not to feed stray cats. Feeding stray animals is not illegal unless littering is involved. Therefore, if you wish to feed them, do so responsibly, and remember to clean up the mess left behind.
However, within Singapore’s National Parks and Nature Reserves, feeding animals, such as monkeys, is an offence prohibited by section 9 of the Parks and Trees Act. National Parks has imposed a fine to discourage feeding, which can encourage unruly behaviour from these wild monkeys.
