This cactus plant at Kembangan is a danger to passersby

STOMPer Good Samaritan is worried for passersby as they have to be wary of the cactus plant along Jalan Senyum near Kembangan MRT.

In an email to STOMP, the STOMPer wrote:

"These two pictures were taken near a corner private house at Jalan Senyum.

"The owner has planted a row of cactus (with very sharp thorns) outside his fence on land which does not belong to him.

"There is a beaten track between the house and the MRT track and many residents of the housing estate use this as a short cut to get to the Kembangan MRT station.

"If you are in a hurry to catch a train in the morning and you walk past this house you must be careful of the cactus plant which grows to a height of about 2 m.

"Why should the owner of this private house be allowed to plant a dangerous plant outside his land and cause inconvenience to passersby?"

I have a funny feeling that all these submissions warning people about so-called 'dangerous' plants are all made by the same person.
