Count­ing cost of pet over­breed­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I AGREE to­tally with what the RSPCA does – there is no need to be cruel to an­i­mals, or peo­ple for that mat­ter.

But there are thou­sands of wild cats and dogs roam­ing our coun­try destroying our na­tive wildlife be­cause peo­ple do stupid things like buy them as presents be­fore ask­ing or think­ing, or breed­ing them in­ten­tion­ally or un­in­ten­tion­ally be­cause they don’t or won’t look af­ter them.

Th­ese an­i­mals in our shel­ters af­ter a time need to be eu­thanised.

You can call me cold-hearted – any­one who knows me knows dif­fer­ent – but I am a re­al­ist and the re­al­ity is that th­ese an­i­mals are cost­ing mil­lions each year. DES PARKYN, Bel­mont.
