Editor's Viewpoint: A despicable act
A dog may be a man's best friend, but man was obviously not a friend to the starved rottweiler which had to be put to sleep in Coleraine yesterday. The abandoned pup was just a bag of bones and was so malnourished it could not even eat.
Someone somewhere must know who owned that dog and apparently treated it so cruelly. If so they should notify the authorities so that the full rigour of the law can be brought to bear on the owner. There is no excuse for treating an animal in this way and there should be no hiding place for the culprit.
