Capital of animal cruelty

LETTER

So I was right . . . one of the lead stories on TV One last night was the story of Jimmy the abused dog found on the beach. Gisborne is once again the capital of animal cruelty.

I hope you people are proud of yourselves. I for one am ashamed to be associated with this kind of behaviour.

Maybe the name Poverty Bay is applicable to your sort . . . the kind of people who are poor in moral fibre, humanity and accountability.

Maybe public stocks in Treble Court with the good people of Gisborne able to dish out retribution would work . . . that’s worth a thought; I for one would pay to be able to throw things at the likes of you . . . dog poo maybe . . . the proceeds could go to the SPCA.
