LETTER - FAMILY PET KILLED BY DOG POISONER

Although I generally do not condone the publication of one's misfortune, for others to study and comment, I beg of you to find room for this letter.

This letter is directed to the miserable "mongrel" responsible for the unforgivable administering of strychnine to the loveable pet, a miniature type fox terrier who is being sadly missed by my wife and children.

I say "mongrel" for the want of a better word to describe the person who would have such a warped miserable mind callous enough to inflict upon a defenceless animal the horrifying agony suffered by the dog during his last hours. Bill Good, South Grafton
