Letter: Policy is in order

When I read Holly Fesperman Lee’s “Doggone lucky pup,” I was sickened that the person who hit the animal did not have the decency to stop. Then for the Police Department to determine that the lack of a policy justifies a “pull it to the side of the road or shoot it” attitude is just as bad. What if this had been your animal, Officer Anonymous?

Two years ago on my way home from work, I came upon a severely injured large black lab in the middle of U.S. 52. It was dark and I could not lift the animal. I pulled into the Granite Quarry Fire Department, and they responded immediately. Unfortunately, we were all too late to save that beautiful animal.

I do not know if those firemen had an administrative policy on injured animals, but their hearts were definitely in the right place! Maybe the Salisbury Police should check with them and start using whatever their policy is.
