-30 doesn’t stop Town­ship­pers!

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Dear Edi­tor The owner of a prop­erty, re in Ogen has kept a dog chained on his aban­doned prop­erty day af­ter day, month af­ter month, 24 hours a day un­til the dog froze to death last week. This abuse was re­ported to the SPCA in Jan­uary and re­sulted in the owner plac­ing some hay on the bot­tom of the wooden dog house. Noth­ing else pro­tected this an­i­mal from up to -35 C. tem­per­a­tures in the past weeks. He was help­lessly chained and could not find a warmer place to sleep at night. He was heard to bark at the lone car that would pass on this coun­try road. His post has now been re­placed by a younger dog of the same breed, prob­a­bly of the same fam­ily. What the poor an­i­mal was meant to guard is an old rusty trac­tor. I guess a chained dog was a cheaper so­lu­tion than a door to his barn and a lock. Shame on any and all who watched this cru­elty and said/did noth­ing.
