Pet woes

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

TOO many sad tales as 2000th dog is res­cued, why do groups like Red Col­lar Res­cue, RSPCA, cat res­cue ect, have to take in and pay for throw out pets? Be­cause coun­cils and state gov­ern­ments won’t bring in com­pul­sory de-sex­ing which in the long run stops th­ese un­wanted cats and dogs be­ing born and mis­treat­ing. I be­lieve that Hervey Bay Coun­cil is about to bring in such a law. What is wrong with our coun­cil and state gov­ern­ment? If they had lis­tened 30-40 years ago when an­i­mal groups asked for com­pul­sory de-sex­ing th­ese groups wouldn’t have to res­cue so many an­i­mals, spend so much of their own money. Coun­cils cer­tainly like to pass the buck, they like threat­en­ing peo­ple and take rego money but do noth­ing to solve the prob­lem. It is sad for peo­ple who are kind and love an­i­mals and try­ing their best to hold onto their san­ity year af­ter year. B Wardrop Bund­aberg
