Letter: Have to wonder if we could have helped
As I read an article in Thursday’s paper I was in shock and disbelief, to name just a few reactions that left me rather angry. Kathleen Tronsor wrote of a family who mistreated their animals and shouted curse words at their children and each other (“A sad example of family life”).
There is no mention of any intervention on behalf of either the children or the animals. According to Kathleen, these neighbors lived there for years.
Hmmmm. I would like to think if it were me and hopefully you, something would have to be done to change the life of the children first and then the animals. Put it in the hands of the authorities with just one phone call.
Also, it is evident to me there was much more emphasis on the animals than the children. I love animals, but they are not equal to human life. I will wonder for a very long time where are those children I read about? Have they fallen through the cracks once again? A nd the animals, are they being fed and watered?
It could have stopped in this town, but now the abuse just shifts to a new town.
