-30 doesn’t stop Townshippers!
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 His post has now been replaced by a younger dog of the same breed, probably of the same family.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.
This little tyke was happy to get a warm hug from Polix, last Saturday, in Beebe Memorial Park.
SQ mascot Polix is seen here with Stanstead Recreation coordinator, Marise Trepanier, and community officer Sgt. Patrice Gregoire at the Winter Fun Day in Beebe.
