Shocking dog cruelty must be punished

Published 16/01/2012

Whoever is responsible for the atrocious state of the rottweiler featured in the Belfast Telegraph (News, January 12) is sub-human.

I cannot bear to contemplate the mindset that would allow a animal to come to such a condition. As for the story regarding the abandoned puppies, I blame the parents who bought them.

To buy animals and then abandon them with no regard for their welfare is not only sadistic, but arrogant, egotistical and beyond contempt.

It is evident that our 'buy now, dump later' mindset now extends to living, breathing creatures.

If you cannot show respect to a defenceless puppy, you are not worthy of the same yourself.
