No more pet deaths

Chat - - NO-FUSS FOOD -

How sad to read first Carol Hart­nell’s story (10 Jan is­sue) then Gaye Fisher’s (21 March is­sue) about the deaths of their dogs. My cat Smokey was killed – also by an un­leashed akita dog – a few years ago.

The at­tack on our cat hap­pened when the dog came up our drive and into our front porch.

We told the po­lice but, un­for­tu­nately, al­though the owner was caught, he’d given the dog to some­one else and fled to an­other area.

Now Gaye’s cam­paign­ing for a much-needed

change in the law to make at­tacks on com­pan­ion dogs a crim­i­nal of­fence.

I urge read­ers to take ac­tion as de­tailed at the end of Gaye’s story. It could hap­pen to YOUR pet!
