Residents kick up a stink over ‘mini-zoo’ owned by ‘towkay’ linked to Selangor MB
The residents of Taman Selayang Indah say they have been plagued by noise and odour pollution since the playground in the area was fenced up and used to keep animals.
(MalaysiaNow) – Meena Chi Chelliah has lived in Taman Selayang Indah for over 40 years and was one of the first to buy a home in the neighbourhood.
Lately, though, the senior citizen has been plagued by a “mini-zoo” set up in an area originally used as a playground.
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, we didn’t use the park,” she said.
“All of a sudden, it was altered by someone even though it’s actually a public space.”
As an original resident, Meena Chi has a housing plan which clearly states the status of the park as public property.
Speaking to MalaysiaNow, though, she said the individual in question seized the opportunity to modify the playground when the pandemic hit.
The area in question, located in the middle of Taman Selayang Indah, is now fenced up and filled with a variety of plants and animals.
A canteen has also been constructed, which the residents blame for clogging up the drains with food waste.
