Stop the cruelty

Poisened dog    e

EACH week the Olive Press team is saddened by a new case of animal cruelty.

Be it a poorly run rescue centre, an abused circus elephant or an abandoned dog stuck down a storm drain, a new tale of animal woe is inevitably waiting around the corner.

And this week, the story of five dogs poisoned to death in Competa , adds a fresh layer on to the already mountainous stack of regrettable tales.

With the Guardia Civil treating the case as ‘suspicious’, we can only hope the perpetrator is unearthed and justice is served.

  1. A truly horrible story – there is never any excuse for poisoning a dog and this dog was clearly a pet. How about introducing a mass neutering programme with volunteer vets?
