Belleville News-Democrat (Sunday) - - Front Page -

It’s that time of year again, aw­ful, bit­ter, bru­tal cold, some days worse than oth­ers.

There’s a never-end­ing prob­lem in the St. Louis metro-east area.

Self­ish, hor­ri­ble, ter­ri­ble peo­ple leav­ing an­i­mals out in harsh or ex­treme con­di­tions to suf­fer and/or die.

It hap­pens ev­ery year, never fails.

If you see an an­i­mal left out in the cold, please, speak up!

Call the po­lice or an an­i­mal shel­ter if you see abuse/ne­glect.

A sim­ple phone call that only takes a few min­utes, could im­prove or save an an­i­mal’s life.

If they won’t or can’t help, then you can.

Take the an­i­mal(s) some warm food, fresh wa­ter, blan­kets, hay, straw, etc.

I feel it’s our duty as hu­mans to look af­ter the wel­fare of help­less/ de­fense­less an­i­mals.

Only ig­no­rant, de­gen­er­ate, lowlife scum al­low an­i­mals to suf­fer.

Have a heart and help the help­less.

– Adam Parker, Belleville
