Bla­tant cru­elty

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE - Deb­bie Roberts and Kathy Mon­roe, Mans­field

SHOP­PING in the un­bear­able heat last Fri­day, my friend and I were sub­jected to the sight/ sounds of dis­tressed dogs on the open tray of a ute on one side of the street in blaz­ing sun and of two other dogs on the other side of the street on the back seat of a closed car.

We rec­om­mend to the own­ers of these dogs that they read the ar­ti­cle in the lat­est edi­tion of North by North East (page 67) on the dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects of hy­per­ther­mia on dogs.

Such cru­elty is not only dev­as­tat­ingly cruel to the dogs but causes much dis­tress to passersby who feel help­less to do any­thing.

Dog own­ers surely must re­alise that, like hu­mans, dogs are sen­tient be­ings.
