An example should be made of pit bull starvers
I was so shocked and upset after reading about the pit bull which was left to die in a woman’s back yard while she was away for TWO MONTHS, that I could hardly eat my supper.
It is upsetting enough to read about livestock and wild animals which are starving in the drought-stricken areas of South Africa.
But to deliberately allow an animal to starve for whatever reason is, to say the least, shocking!
What kind of human being leaves a chained dog to starve in her back yard with the feeble excuse “she knew no one to ask to feed the dog”.
She should be named, shamed and locked up for animal cruelty.
(As should the person who was feeding the other dog in the same back yard but refused to feed the pit bull.)
If the Pacaltsdorp police station regards animal cruelty as too petty to follow up, they must think again.
How we treat animals is a sure indication of our level of social awareness in general.
Anybody who subjects animals to cruelty and mistreatment is capable of doing the same to vulnerable children and old people.
An example should be made of this woman - to such an extent that it will deter others from doing the same!
She should not be allowed to get away with this!
