Story of dead dog may en­cour­age more re­ports

Cape Breton Post - - COMMENT - Bhreagh MacA­dam Syd­ney

I am hor­ri­fied and heart­bro­ken at the suf­fer­ing and pain the poor an­i­mal must have gone through (SPCA In­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter Dead Dog Found Out­side, Feb. 5)

In my opin­ion, the so-called owner could have no pos­si­ble, jus­ti­fi­able rea­son for leav­ing this an­i­mal in such de­plorable con­di­tions with no food or wa­ter in sight. It sick­ens me that an­other hu­man would treat a liv­ing, breath­ing crea­ture with so lit­tle re­spect and care.

Joe Bona should be ap­plauded for the steps he took to­wards help­ing this an­i­mal when he no­ticed signs of ne­glect and abuse. I hope this story will en­cour­age oth­ers to come for­ward and voice con­cern when they ob­serve cru­elty to­wards an­i­mals so that events such as this are not al­lowed to hap­pen again.
