An spokesperson for the association wrote on Facebook:

Help Animal Malaysia identify the location and who this animal belongs to. Mystery gift awaits the complete information if it’s in this country.

The post has triggered several reactions among netizens, with many criticising the people behind the act. “Do you think this is funny?” asked a user, while another wrote, “What a pity he got sprayed. Must not be comfortable.”

However, this is not the first time such an act has caught the attention, enraging animal activists. Last year, two donkeys painted to look like zebras for a safari-themed wedding reception at a Spanish beach town had triggered outrage online.
