Taylor's University is in a Stray Dog Crisis (Updated with Official Response)

Posted by Chong

Update 4 April 2014: Taylor's official response:
Taylor's University is appalled to learn about the treatment by the external contractor hired on recommendation of Majlis Perbandaran Subang Jaya (MPSJ) on one of the stray dogs. We regret that this incident took place as it is something we do not condone. We have since ceased the services of this contractor, who was engaged after efforts carried out by MPSJ to address this issue was met with no success.

Taylor’s is committed to providing a safe environment for our family. The decision to remove the stray dogs comes after numerous complaints from our students, parents and staff. We are now seeking to involve our community to come up with measures to help solve the problem of stray dogs within the Lakeside Campus.
According to a video (see below) that went viral on Facebook, Puspa Pani, the founder of Malaysia Independent Animal Rescue, claimed she received a report from Shivany SenthilNathan who witnessed this incident at Taylor's University Lakeside Campus.

Taylor's University is in real PR crisis now, with some of the Facebook comments like "Taylor university .. shame on you" and "Taylors college u [sic] are a disgrace" getting high number of likes. One person even left a comment calling for a protest outside the campus "If you guys really care, should make some signs and protest outside of Taylor university to stop this cruelty. Make it a big deal because it is a big deal, let the media point out the ugliness behind this university!" At the time of posting, this video post has been shared 2,195 times on Facebook. Will dog lovers still want to enrol in a university with an environment like this?

We've reached out to Taylor's University for comment and will update if we get a reply.

In the meantime, Shivany SenthilNathan just posted the message below. Any dog lovers out there?

  1. So with the official response, can we conclude that Taylor's now shifts the blame to MPSJ instead and takes no responsibility whatsoever to this incident?

  2. Dont think it is Taylors fault man. They faced a problem with the dogs, and they go to the authority to complain about this. MBSJ are the one who is responsible. Actually this is what all Majlis Perbandaran do to catch stray dogs, and this is SICK. Something MUST change about the method.
