According to another post by OtterWatch, the Punggol Marina family of otters consists of parents, a sub-adult and five pups.

They have been frequently spotted in the area and reportedly have been seeking refuge from stronger otter families in the Punggol area.

A spokesman for the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) told The Straits Times that it is investigating the incident. Members of the public who have information on the case or witnessed the incident can contact AVA at 1800-476-1600.
